The story of Positronics Seeds follows the life of founder Wernard Bruining, and though the seed bank was originally founded in 1985, the origins of the company stretch back to the swinging sixties.
Before becoming the Potfather, Bruining aimed to be a teacher. When he moved to Amsterdam in the 60s, however, he discovered cannabis and fell head over heels in love. With a new marijuana-focused motivation, Bruining redirected his life, and was in the thick of cannabis history when Mellow Yellow, the first coffeeshop, opened its doors.
Travelling America in the 70s, Bruining studying ganja intently. He discovered Sinsemilla, the benefits of natural breeding, how to successfully pass on desirable genetic traits, and met industry legends like “Old” Ed Holloway.
With a wealth of hands-on experience and a huge selection of incredible cannabis seeds, Bruining returned to the Netherlands with the aim of shaping the country into the Jamaica of Europe.
And here, Positronics Seeds, the first European seed bank, was born.
A Studious Mission Statement
With the goal of turning the Netherlands into a European Jamaica, Bruining knew that his studious habits had to continue. There is always more to learn and ways to improve.
Positronics Seeds has embodied this educational ethos in every action, thoroughly investigating the marijuana plant in their efforts to establish a catalog brimming with a host of varieties perfect for all palates and senses, and guaranteed to satisfy.
Their beliefs led to their esteemed reputation of making quality cannabis growing at home accessible to everyone, and instant critical acclaim for their cultivation and selective breeding techniques.
Positronics Seeds earned their glowing reputation as industry leaders in a multitude of innovative ways, and it certainly helped them to stand out instantly and make a name for themselves.
Early on, this pioneering seed bank of talented breeders gave rise to guerilla farming and developed the game-changing technique of growing seedlessly through the use of cuttings.
As many modern growers know well, this proved revolutionary, allowing cultivators to grow the same varieties and paving the way for the future of the modern marijuana scene we know today.
Beyond becoming legends of selective breeding, Positronics Seeds also embraced the cannabis industry as a whole. Their list of accomplishments reads a little like this. They;
- Published the first Dutch weed newspaper, Soft Secret, which still runs to this day.
- Created the Mediwiet non-profit system, which helps supply cheaper cannabis to the medical market and those suffering.
- Helped companies like BioBizz (a legendary brand of biofertilizers) get started.
- Supplied many Amsterdam coffeeshops and were integral in the coffeeshop becoming quintessential to cannabis culture.
Not to mention that founder Bruining has run a number of courses and seminars on the medicinal applications of marijuana, helping propel the medical industry (MMJ) into the future.
Tragedy and Revival
In 1996, Positronics Seeds was sadly forced to close their doors.
Bruining split the seed bank between his faithful staff, gathered up his original parent plants and moved to Spain.
The exact reason for this shining star to fizzle is somewhat ambiguous, however, the unexpected can deliver great delights. In 2004, Bruining (who had continued his cultivation and breeding projects on a more personal level) met a Spaniard fan named Sebastian.
Sebas, as he’s known, had owned a grow shop in Malaga, named El Punto Eres Tu, for over 15 years. Being in such awe of Bruining’s achievements and sharing a united passion for cannabis, the two entrepotneurs resurrected Positronics Seeds in a new Spanish home and to tremendous success.

The name means ‘with distinction’, and Cum Laude certainly lives up to that honor. She comes to us from the storied genetic lineage of Queen Mother, Tijuana and Original Haze and is lauded as the crown jewel in the Positronics Seeds collection.
