Purveyors of Fine Landaraces

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet. 

Our Mission

The sole intent of Strain Hunters is to identify, locate and retrieve cannabis landraces that have not yet been studied, in order to give scientists and doctors the possibility to further enhance knowledge of the cannabis plant in the medicinal field.

Strain Hunters Since 2008

Arjan and Franco started the Strain Hunters Documentary Series in 2008 after deciding they were going to show the world what it takes to be a Strain Hunter. Unfortunately Franco passed away from malaria in 2017. Arjan took a break from making movies until 2021 where he was joined by Simon, Dust and Oscar on a expedition to South Africa.

Strain Hunters Club

Strain Hunters Club is a private members only club located in the Netherlands and Spain. This is the place where we get together with like-minded Strain Hunters to enjoy life, plan new expeditions and sample exclusive products. To become a member you need to know someone who is already a member or you can purchase life-time membership through our NFT. More information about this will be published in the coming motnhs. 

In the name of Franco...

Strain Hunters series is dedicated to Franco Loja, who lost his life to malaria that he contracted while working to legalise cannabis in Congo. Strain Hunters must continue, in the name of Franco.
