Devil’s Harvest Krew
During the days of cannabis prohibition, it was difficult for growers to obtain high-quality cannabis genetics. Seed banks were few and far between, and clones were off the menu unless you knew the right people. However, during the early 2000s, one organization changed the way cannabis genetics were distributed. The Devil’s Harvest Krew made it possible for growers around the nation to get their hands on the best seeds and clones in the world.
Shortly before the downfall of the celebrated Overgrow website, a group of internet friends made it their mission to collect, protect, and disseminate elite clones and rare seeds across the United States. This organization, known as the Devil’s Harvest Krew, was founded by Weedzilla, Outdoor Grower, Erawk, and Moonshineman of Rare Dankness.
The DHK swiftly built an extensive catalog of clones and seeds sourced from legendary breeders such as Orgnkid, ThaDocta, OG Raskal, and many others. Growers from the East Coast to the West Coast could finally get their hands on rare strains, including Abusive OG, West Coast Dog, Bubba Kush, and countless others.
For more than five years, the Devil’s Harvest Krew worked tirelessly, transporting clones across the country, pheno hunting, and sourcing cuts from fellow growers. Thanks to their efforts, cannabis communities throughout the Midwest were introduced to a wide variety of never-before-seen cultivars.
Despite the DHK’s dedication and passion, the group soon faded into obscurity. Reports of diseased cuts surfaced, egos clashed, and reputations were jeopardized. Ultimately, the organization disbanded when a few founding members decided they were tired of the “internet drama” so prevalent throughout the cannabis forums.
Although the Devil’s Harvest Krew was short-lived, it had a monumental impact on the cannabis scene, making rare cultivars widely available, supporting the efforts of breeders, and teaching growers the importance of preserving and sharing genetics.
