The Seed Bank Awards for Best Cannabis Seed Bank of 2020 got off to a rocky start. COVID-19 had just swept through the heart of America and our magazine. We had to shutdown for months to have our offices deep-cleaned and sanitized before we could return. We did decided to not give any seed banks a heads up this year. Instead, we went through everyone who voted legally in the last awards ceremony and invited one thousand of them to vote. Let me start off a bit earlier… We first went through all the voters that were involved in the 2019 Seed Bank Awards and then weeded out any voters that shouldn’t have been there. There were not many cheaters, and not enough to make a difference in the last awards ceremony. but there were still a few (a total of 3). We looked for anyone currently working for a seed bank, or that had worked for a seed bank in the last year that voted (a lot and then we equally divided up the voters by seed bank. We randomly chose one hundred voters that voted for (for example) seed bank A, then another hundred voters that voted for seed bank B, and so on. Do you see where we are going with this?
We took ten of the most popular seed banks from 2019 (that had at least a hundred or more votes) and invited a hundred of their supporters to vote for them this year. Each group had voted the year before for one of the seed banks and they would now vote again this year.
Let Us Dumb This Down Even Further
We tried this approach to make things even more fair and keep the cry babies and punks at the sidelines. Every seed bank started out with a hundred customers who thought they were the best in 2019. We are utilizing each vote as a point, so each customer is a point. The total points that can be had are one thousand. There are ten seed banks. Each seed bank starts out with one hundred customers who thought they were the best last year.
The play here is to have the most points. The 2020 Seed Bank Awards will be based solely on points. No categories. Why? Because not only are we interested in who is the best, every-time we switch things up, we can study a new demographic or in this case, many demographics. Some were unhappy with how we did last years Seed Bank of the Year Awards. It was mostly the seed banks that complained, and why shouldn’t they? Seed bank owners are a different breed of people. They are very proud, usually came from nothing to take on great responsibility, and they love to wield tiny dogs. Is it just a coincidence?

We will begin posting the results of the 2020 Seed Bank of the Year Awards soon. Stay tuned.
