Hunting For A Rare Congolese Weed Strain With “The Kings of Cannabis”: VICE on HBO

Over the past 20 years, Franco Loja and Arjan Roskam, known as the “Kings of Cannabis,” have made millions of dollars scouring the world for unique strains of weed to breed and then sell.

Now, they’ve turned their sights on Equatorial Africa, specifically the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as their next gold mine — and a way to revolutionize the cannabis industry.

“Equatorial Africa is one the best preserved because of the wars, the lack of infrastructure, political unrest. All these situations created isolation there,” Loja explained. “So that’s where we’re going.”

Loja and Roskam built their global powerhouse on inbred strains of cannabis called “landraces” that they’ve collected from all over the world — Argentina, Australia, and Brazil, just to name a few spots. Without these strains, the duo’s various breeding enterprises, Amsterdam coffeeshops, and even distribution centers wouldn’t exist.

VICE News met up with the “Kings of Cannabis” for a trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to hunt for one of the rarest species of Cannabis yet, the original Congolese landrace.

  4. O que vocês fazem para por fim a essa criminalização racista? Nada os difere dos colonizadores britânicos, franceses e portugueses de alguns séculos atrás. Pegam sementes de comunidades que arriscam a vida e a liberdade, se inscreve em concurso bizarros em lugares que a lei permite e não trará problema algum para vocês, fazem milhares de dólares vendendo sementes, vendem algo como se fosse vocês que descobriu e as pessoas que forneceram a sementes seguem arriscando suas vidas e liberdade. Isso é perverso tanto quanto a lei que criminaliza. Se vierem no Brasil terem prazer em lhes dar uma banana.
