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.
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.
TGA Genetics (aka Subcool Seeds) is a team of breeders with locations in California, Oregon, and Washington. TGA Genetics 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 has won a number of awards for their strains in the 13 years since their inception.
Subcool, who suffers from a genetic form of emphysema known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, has seen his periodic doses of lifesaving medicine interrupted. He lost his custom-built home and everything in it, but has since been provided refuge by his breeder friends at Norstar Genetics.
“You can’t use the terpenoids because they’ll have a smoky taste,” Subcool says. “People are making jokes about buds contaminated by smoke, calling that weed ‘Campfire OG.’”

“I guess I could put a trailer on my ash-covered Northern California land and live in a trailer or a tent,” he says. “But I don’t think I could stand the ghosts. I couldn’t stand to wake up every day and see the dead zone where my home, garden, and beautiful trees used to be.”

At this moment, the new seed bank has 45 different varieties available to the public, all tested to very high quality standards so that anyone who chooses to grow The Dank Seeds will always be more than happy with the final product.
Subcool is developing genetics under strict quality standards – “The Dank Standard”, based on selections from thousands of seeds, searching for the best phenotypes to work with. From this intense selection work comes the bases to create new strains that always ensure the highest possible quality.

After losing not only his house, but also his seed stock and genetic library in the California wildfires, Subcool was forced to start his seed bank from almost nothing. Over the course of a year he was able to recover the vast majority of his most treasured mother plants from friends and colleagues, enabling him finally begin the process of rebuilding his seed bank.
