TruthOnPot.com – Arjan Roskam is the founder of the multi-million dollar Green House Seed Company. Whether you’ve heard of Arjan or his company before, you’ve probably tried – or at least wanted to try – some of the strains he’s bred. World famous strains like White Widow and Super Silver Haze have earned Arjan a total of 38 Cannabis Cups over his 20 year career.

The secret to his success? Travelling to different parts of the world to gather wild growing strains known as landraces – ancient varieties of cannabis that have been untouched by modern breeders. Arjan and his crew have been to places like India, Jamaica, and Morocco, documenting their travels in a popular Youtube series called Strain Hunters.

VICE followed the Strain Hunters on one of their latest expeditions to Colombia in search of three legendary landraces: Limon Verde, Punta Roja and Colombian Gold.
