About Ethos Genetics

Powerful, tasty, productive, and stable genetic lines


Ethos Genetics is a seed bank based in Denver, USA that develops regular and feminized cannabis seeds.

Colin Gordon has run the seed bank since its foundation, developing genetic lines together with his group of trusted breeders and maintaining a commitment to quality that's reflected in all their seeds. Ethos Genetics applies a working method that provides a genetic improvement in the feminized seeds that are called Alpha Seeds. These seeds are produced with a technique that does not generate stress in the reverted plants, preventing the creation of hermaphrodite strains. All hybrids are subjected to resistance tests before being presented to the public.  

ETHOS is celebrated in Westword’s Best of Denver 2022 round-up:

“If we're measuring cannabis breeders based on how many of their strains reach users, then it's tough to beat Ethos Genetics. Since launching in 2017, the Littleton-based seed company has continually appeared at Colorado dispensaries and beyond, and there's no sign of that spirit letting up. Citradelic Sunset, Citral Flo, Colin OG (named after founder Colin Gordon), Lilac Diesel, Member Berry, and perhaps the company's most popular creation, Mandarin Sunset, are just some of the strains birthed by Ethos Genetics. We can't wait to puff what it comes out with next.   Don't wait to experience the unparalleled quality of Ethos Genetics.

Ethos Genetics and Colin Gordon: A Commitment to Quality and Innovation


From years of experience working with the breeders at Ethos Genetics, I can tell you firsthand that they are widely recognized in our community for their distinctive qualities that set them apart.


Ethos Genetics differentiates its hybrids.


From Indica-dominant varieties that soothe the body to Sativas that transport you to outer space on long psychedelic journeys, Ethos Genetics has in its catalog many strains containing high cannabinoid concentrations. Some hybrids, such as Inzane In the Membrane, are capable of producing up to 35 percent THC. Other varieties have high terpenes concentrations reaching 15 percent, such as Mandarin Cookies or Mandarine Sunset. Also worth mentioning are Mandarin ZkittlezPurple Roze, Zour Apples, Peach Crescendo, and Banana Hammock, among many others. All genetics can be cultivated both indoors and outdoors. They adapt well to hydroponic cultivation systems as well as soil substrates. The use of organic fertilizers improves the organoleptic load to the maximum. Undoubtedly, Ethos Genetics is a highly recommended bank seed, particularly for American strain lovers looking for excellent production, terrific flavor, and high psychedelic power.


Flavor, aroma, effect, potency, and production are the characteristics that most interest Ethos Genetics.


They also look for height stability, which can vary among strains, so multiple crosses are made in BX, R1, or F2 to ensure that new-generation hybrids are stable. The seed bank has an extensive catalog with powerful and delicious varieties that have won many prizes in various categories in different cannabis competitions, treasuring an impeccable international reputation. With strict adherence to its code of ethics in the development of cannabis hybrids, this seed bank proudly presents, among many others, varieties such as Mandarin SunsetMandarin Cookies, Inzane in the membrane, Citradelic SunsetCrescendo RBXV2Ethos Apex, Forbidden Zkittlez or Grape Diamonds. All Ethos’ cultivars are outstanding, although, among the most popular, we highlight Mandarin Sunset as a genetic base and Mandarin Cookies as the Ethos Genetics flagship strains.
