The site is back up, however not all the data has been restored. We are still waiting for the data recovery service to finish working on the drive. As of right now there are a lot of uploaded video and image files that still need to be restored. There are also some newer channels that have not been restored as of yet. As soon as the restoration process is complete I will update here.


Thanks

Hunting For A Rare Congolese Weed Strain With “The Kings of Cannabis” | VICE on HBO

13 Views

Over the past 20 years, Franco Loja and Arjan Roskam, known as the "Kings of Cannabis," have made millions of dollars scouring the world for unique strains of weed to breed and then sell.

Now, they've turned their sights on Equatorial Africa, specifically the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as their next gold mine — and a way to revolutionize the cannabis industry.

"Equatorial Africa is one the best preserved because of the wars, the lack of infrastructure, political unrest. All these situations created isolation there," Loja explained. "So that's where we're going."

Loja and Roskam built their global powerhouse on inbred strains of cannabis called "landraces" that they've collected from all over the world — Argentina, Australia, and Brazil, just to name a few spots. Without these strains, the duo's various breeding enterprises, Amsterdam coffeeshops, and even distribution centers wouldn't exist.

VICE News met up with the “Kings of Cannabis” for a trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to hunt for one of the rarest species of Cannabis yet, the original Congolese landrace.
