TGA Genetics (aka Subcool Seeds) is a team of breeders with its roots in Seattle, WA. It started, in 2001, as a small group of dedicated medical cannabis gardeners who had grown tired of the false claims and made up marketing.
TGA (The Green Avengers) is headed by Subcool and Mz. Jill, two of the most accomplished horticulturalists the industry has to offer. Their beloved genetics are highly sought after for their characteristic terpene profiles. Most TGA strains have a distinguishable fruit aroma. This is because Subcool often uses selective breeding techniques to find strains that will produce the best-tasting hash.
Strains from TGA Genetics are commonly found throughout the world today. This is particularly true in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Some of their most well-known strains include: Space Queen, Agent Orange, Vortex, Timewreck, and Jilly Bean.
