World-class cannabis seeds
BC Bud Depot

BCBD markets cannabis strains developed and produced in-house, known for their premium quality as evidenced by scores of awards and distinctions garnered over decades. BCBD is a household name with global recognition as one of the original and longest-standing companies in the cannabis genetics industry. The BC Bud Depot has been developing the best cannabis seeds for years, and every strain we carry has earned a place in our lineup of legendary breeds.

850,000 Seed Inventory

We have an inventory of around 850,000 seeds in our seed bank. Our Genetics Vault contains starting genes for over 200 varieties. Our seed vault contains genes from around the world for use in breeding projects. We draw from the best that the world cannabis gene pool has to offer, and we serve over 50,000 clients worldwide.


Worldwide Brand Recognition

Among global seed banks, BCBD ranks in the top three brands in terms of recognition. Whether you are in California, Europe or Canada, if you ask someone to name a cannabis seed bank, they are likely to mention BCBD.

With 48 proprietary strains, feminized and regular (I.e. sativas, indicas, hybrids, autos and high-CBD), we’re the only global source for the authentic genetics of our proprietary strains.

We are proud to be the exclusive distributor of Canada’s Scorpion 420.

BCBD in the Spotlight

BC Bud Depot is often sought out for interviews and consultations, and although for years we declined the spotlight, we have been featured in mainstream media including Time Magazine, The Walrus, and CBC, as well as just about every cannabis industry publication across all media.

Ten years of pre-paid advertising with High Times Magazine (>400,000 readers) —the value of this advertising space is immense. Over 15 years, we leapfrogged to ever-better advertising space until we occupied prime spots in the world’s largest cannabis magazine. Anything that BCBD chooses to announce in this space creates an international buzz in the industry and the public at large.

Awards & Recognition

We have award-winning quality strains: numerous awards, proprietary strains, and seed bank. With almost 40% of our strains being award-winners, some winners of multiple awards over a span of a decade or more, which reflects upon the quality of our entire strain catalogue, we are assured of consistent global and domestic demand for our strains over the long term.
