Introduction of John Sinclair

Cannabis Hero

American poet, writer and radio maker, John Sinclair has made incalculable contributions to cannabis legalization and is celebrated as a heroic icon of American counterculture and of cannabis activism in particular. After he was arrested for giving two joints to an undercover narcotics officer in 1969 he was sentenced to the unusual punishment of 10 years for mere possession.

"It ain't fair, John Sinclair In the stir for breathing air" - John Lennon.

John's arrest and cruel sentence sparked the landmark 'Free John Now Rally' held in Ann Arbour, December 1971. Due to the continued pressure to release John, by his friends on the outside and his own campaigning, a huge event was planned to include John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Stevie Wonder, David Peel, Pete Seeger, Allen Ginsberg, Abbie Hoffmann, Jerry Rubin, and others. John Lennon recorded and dedicated the song "John Sinclair" to the cause, and included it on his album 'Some Time in New York City' (1972).

Thanks to this high profile contribution to the concert and the massive protests against Sinclair's imprisonment, the "Free John Now Rally" was an unimaginable success. After the gathering, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that the state's marijuana laws were unconstitutional. John was released from his cell three days after the freedom rally, after having served two of his ten year sentence. The arrest and release of John Sinclair remains an iconic sucess story for the counterculture movement and for worldwide cannabis liberation.

John Sinclair has long been fond of the liberal laws practiced in the Netherlands. He has spent more than 19 years studying the consequences of its decriminalization from his unique perspective. John continues reporting back to the people through his writing, poetry, radio broadcasts and activism. In 2005 John became affiliated with fellow cannabis connoisseurs at Ceres Seeds and worked closely with the team in Amsterdam to select six potent strains, which mirror his particular taste and requirments.

Developed over 57 years of serious smoking, these genetics exhibit the finest sativa and indica strains anywhere. Ceres Seeds is happy to donate a part of the benefits harvested from John Sinclair Seeds to The John Sinclair Foundation, which in turn helps to support John's on-going cultural projects such as RadioFreeAmsterdam. “Its All Good” John Sinclair

Amsterdam has been the first city of choice for John Sinclair. This new variety of Skunk is bred in collaboration with Ceres Seeds to reflect the strong skunk weed found in many Amsterdam coffeeshops, and to fulfill requirments of John's evolved taste. Parented by the original strain that made Amsterdam legendary in the 1980s, wiining the very first Amsterdam cannabis cup. Amsterdam Skunk is a top quality classic strain, a fast growing, high yielding plant with exceptionally strong effects.
Skunk is highly respected as the original hybrid, the first stable crossing of an indica and sativa together. Today, skunk is often used as a generic term to refer to any powerful marijuana, but only the original skunk, with the original genetics, can live up to its reputation: very smelly and strong as an Ox. John Sinclair has been a longtime lover of potent ganja, and we are proud to present his own tribute to the classic variety.
Skunk has been around for decades so its genetics have had ample time to stabilize properly, which gives John Sinclair Amsterdam Skunk a consistent structure and steady bud formation. The growth and flowering is dominated by the Indica genes, although this Skunk will grow somewhat taller than other pure Indica strains. She only takes 8-9 weeks to mature, is easy to maintain and will yield abundantly. John Sinclair Skunk is the best choice for a beginner because of its rock solid genetics, quick flowering time and general low maintenance. The Sativa genes manifest when the delightful buds are harvested and smoked producing the desired combination of high and stoned!
