Our Mission

An Emergent Industry

The 2014 USDA Farm Bill opened up the legal floodgates for the production of type III hemp, driving innovator farmers to establish legitimate operations throughout the United States. Following this trend, legal type I & II medical and recreational cannabis markets have begun to emerge State by State, with large, well capitalized brands and consolidated operations beginning to dominate the market landscape, catalyzing an inevitable “race to the bottom.”

 

A Competitive Market

In response, firms across the industry vertical have begun streamlining their processes to compete in a now margin sensitive marketplace, as consumers choose value brands that can meet basic quality parameters. Atlas Seed was founded to fulfill the market need for genetics that can compete in a competitive, price sensitive marketplace.

Market Opportunity

Early California state medical licensing and legal restrictions developed an underground flower production industry precedent towards large, horticulturally managed plants with full term growth lengths (4-5 months+) and inordinately high labor and micro-management inputs, resulting in niche, artisanal production models that are neither scalable nor practical within an industrial agricultural context. Additionally, cannabis breeders have historically focused on potency and terpenes, but agricultural production qualities have by and large been ignored up to this point.

Lowest Cost of
Production Model

Hemp and most recently cannabis have finally been deployed on an agricultural scale, leading breeders, nurseries, and growers to work towards developing genetics and production methods that can meet consumer needs within a competitive retail market landscape.

Our Mission

To solve the problem of developing the lowest cost of production model possible begins first and foremost with cannabis breeders developing strains that fit into an agricultural context. The solution is cannabis and hemp bred for agriculture.
