JamesLoudGenetics is a company that focuses on producing high-quality cannabis seeds specializing in elite genetics, stable auto-flower varieties, and bulk seed production. James Loud, who has spent over 30 years working with cannabis, founded Loud Seeds, a multiple High Times Cannabis Cup winning company, in 2012 and was inducted into the High Times Hall of Fame. 

Around 10 years ago, he traveled through Europe and was disappointed with the quality of auto-flowering cannabis seeds he saw there. He vowed never to make autoflowers; in 2017, a friend showed him some autoflower plants that would stand up to photoperiod cultivars. He now spends some of his time breeding autoflowers marketed to large-scale farms, and his company also sells its products exclusively through SeedshereNow.

It Runs In the Family

Loud has been growing since 1991, starting with a small flower in a coke can. After years of trial and error, James perfected his growing and developed a potent and powerful Sour Diesel strain. But it wasn't a chance that got James started with growing cannabis; for him, it’s just part of the family business.

“My parents own a CBD company in Dallas, and they sell CBD, Delta 8, and other hemp products in one of the most conservative states in the US.” Although he doesn’t see himself working with cannabinoids like Delta 8 and CBD, he sees the importance of them being accessible to people that usually don’t consider trying cannabis flower.

Perseverance is something that runs in the family, whether it be perfecting a strain or distributing hemp products in one of the hardest states with the most restrictions against cannabis.

A Man of Many Talents

Most breeders get their start in unique ways, and for James Loud, it couldn’t get more unique than this. Working as a banker, a roofer, an IT engineer, and even a chef, Loud prides himself on his long career and applies most of what he has learned to his career of growing cannabis.

“I’ve been fortunate in life to try lots of different careers. I do what I love, and when it’s not fulfilling anymore, I switch.” Today he uses his expertise as a chef to find the best flavors and potent strains that will have a distinctive taste you won’t find anywhere else. And as a winner of several awards, including the 2012 High Times Cannabis Cup, you can rest assured that you are getting the best quality flower from James Loud Genetics.

The Secret Is In The Detail

When asked what sets his brand apart from others, Loud proudly admits, “I have an elite collection and access to elite cultivars, some that date back into the 80s. We are trying to set the bar higher with seed production, pheno hunting, tissue culture, and a clean clone program. I feel like I’m working with other great minds that understand that success in cannabis is not a sprint to the finish line; it’s more of a marathon.”

The best chefs know how important it is to have the best ingredients and how to use them to make a dish that no one else can make, and for growing, it is much of the same. “I've been doing it longer than most and I actually put in the work.” James has worked hundreds of intensive labor jobs and doesn’t shy away from getting his hands dirty, which just adds to what sets him apart from other growers, who will sometimes cut corners to get desired results.

Transparency & Pride

When you grow and develop your own product, you are bound to take pride in your work and craft, like an artist creating a new painting. For James Loud, nothing is more fulfilling than cultivating and establishing a brand that is transparent and special. “If it was still illegal I would do it if there was no money in it, I would still do it. I do it because I love it, and I'm 45 years old so I’m doing a lot of legacy work right now that I can hopefully leave to my friends and younger generations.”

It's not about the money or having the best product, it’s simply because it’s a passion, and that translates into every strain put out by JamesLoudGenetics.

Partnering with one of the industry's most recognized online cannabis brokers, Loud is now selling exclusively on SeedsHereNow.com. Not only do they provide a great way of bringing his work out into the community, but they also align with his goals and brand morals.

When asked what message he wants to leave breeders with or what is the most important lesson he learned from cultivating, he answers, “Don’t chase the money, do what you love, and don’t lose focus. Discipline is one of the most important skills; you will get better over time if you put the work in.”
