Equilibrium Genetics is based in Mendocino County, California. Equilibrium Genetics was founded in 2014 by Jason Matthys to preserve the diversity of cannabis genetics for future generations. We produce hybrid, heirloom, and landrace cannabis seeds, while helping people legally access a wide variety of cannabis genetics.
Jason Matthys, founder of Equilibrium Genetics, has a background in cannabis policy activism. Originally from Woodridge, Virginia, he experienced the injustices of the War On Drugs firsthand. This influenced him to become involved in the cannabis movement where he founded a chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) at his local community college and organized political and educational events in northern Virginia and Washington D.C.
He is a former organizer of the D.C. Marijuana March and a recipient of SSDP’s Outstanding Activist Award in 2010. That same year he moved to Oakland, California where he worked at Harborside Health Center and was featured in cannabis documentaries on the History Channel, Discovery Channel, British Broadcasting Corporation, and in radio and print media.
After starting Equilibrium Genetics, Jason began organizing the cannabis movement in Santa Cruz County to defend the rights of patients and cultivators resulting in a local referendum to overturn a cannabis cultivation ban. This where he met Bradley, a journalist, website developer, and longtime cannabis proponent.
Bradley Allen, CTO of Equilibrium Genetics, has a background in education, sustainable agriculture, social justice journalism, and website development.
While growing up in southern California, Bradley met the iconic hemp activist Jack Herer and bought his epic book, The Emperor Wears No Clothes. While turning those pages, Bradley began discovering the hidden truth about cannabis, including the conspiracy to destroy this vital plant and stigmatize its advocates. This catalyzed Bradley on a journey working for social and environmental justice.
As an undergraduate, Bradley studied agroecology and globalization, and co-founded the Student Environmental Center at UC Santa Cruz, which has become an institution within the university. After receiving a degree in Environmental Studies, he earned a Masters at UCSC in Social Documentation, with an emphasis on photography and website development.
From humble beginnings in 2014, Equilibrium Genetics has grown into one of the largest and best known cannabis genetics companies in the state of California. Equilibrium Genetics continues to adhere to their mission of providing high quality cannabis genetics of diverse varieties to Californians.
