Weird pot fact: Thousands of marijuana seeds kept in world’s doomsday vault

Posted on November 19, 2014 | By Jake Ellison

When global catastrophe strikes (okay, if … ), the handful of humans left on the planet will at least have a marijuana seeds to plant (along with a few trees, fruits and vegetables).

Tom Angell, founder of Marijuana Majority and frequent contributor to Marijuana.com, recently discovered that the Svalbard Global Seed Vault established in the permafrost in the mountains of Svalbard contains some 21,500 cannabis seeds.

Angell writes:

That’s more weed seeds than there are asparagus, blueberry or raspberry seeds stored at the facility. There are more marijuana genetics in the “Doomsday Seed Vault” than there are for artichoke, cranberry and pear combined.
