Prima, a Michigan-based premium cannabis genetics company, announced the launch of its official seed line, the Aviator seed line, on September 28, 2023. Known for being a leading supplier of top-tier commercial cannabis genetics in Michigan, Prima is expanding its product offerings to include cannabis seeds.
A Focus on High-Quality Genetics
Founded by a disabled combat veteran, Prima is intensifying its research and development efforts around breeding and selection. The company focuses on high potency, high-quality, and solventless hash producers. “We built a strong brand around years of R&D, searching for the absolute best in cannabis genetics. With such a deep library and our Clean Stock Program, we are beyond thrilled to offer this quality of cannabis genetics in seed form,” said Nate Niehuus, Founder and CEO of Prima.
The Aviator Line
The Aviator line was chosen as the flagship product to be a breeder’s line of cannabis seeds. The male donor exhibited stability, strong structure, and a very heavy flower set, making it an excellent breeding stock. The seeds are regular photoperiod seeds and are now available for purchase directly from Prima’s online shop by consumers across the United States.
Genetic Selection and Refinement
Prima employs a process known as ‘pheno-hunting,’ where each flowering cycle focuses solely on selecting the finest genetics. The company uses stringent selection criteria and tissue culture remediation and collaborates with a broad network of high-quality partners. “Seeds have always been the preferred method of selection for true connoisseurs. And until now, it’s been a challenge to get our genetics into the hands of people outside Michigan. Our market just opened up,” added Niehuus.
Prima’s future breeding projects will be limited to small batch production, each dedicated to a singular goal of quality flowers, outdoor cultivars, or solventless hash-producing varieties. “The best hash plant we have ever grown, even among the headiest connoisseurs, we sourced from Prima. When we heard Prima had seeds available, we were the first in line, and we’re undertaking a massive pheno-hunt of Prima’s seeds,” said Midnight Wash Co.
Importance of Genetic IP
As cannabis genetic intellectual property becomes increasingly important to extractors, cultivators, and vertically integrated companies, Prima aims to be a competitive advantage to their clients. The company’s focus on high-value genetics sets it apart in a market where most multi-state operators have yet to market with high-value genetics.
