The Flying Dutchman started out with humble beginnings. Founder, Eddie, began collecting cannabis seeds to conduct research for his own personal use.
This all changed in 1984, when Eddie teamed up with another breeder 'Skunkman'. Together Eddie and Skunkman opened a wholesale genetics business, cultivating new hybrids and strains. It was these two men who first developed Skunk #1.
To ensure unique parental stocks, thousands of strains were grown in greenhouses with only the very best preserved. These were then inbreed until considered stable.
