BARCELONA, Spain, Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seedsman, an international seed bank, announced the release of a free digital book in partnership with Legendary cannabis cultivator George Van Patten AKA Jorge Cervantes.

"We Grow Cannabis is my comprehensive guide to cannabis cultivation that shares the traditional cannabis community's best introductory tips and practices," said George Van Patten, AKA Jorge Cervantes. "It is an honor to collaborate with Seedsman, to inspire readers to discover the magic of cannabis by making this information on cultivation as accessible as possible."

Jorge Cervantes is the nom de plume George Van Patten took to conceal his identity from 1983 to 2010. Van Patten wore black dreadlocks and a beret to cloak his public identity. The disguise allowed him to enter illegal cultivation circles. Starting his self-publishing career under the alias of Jorge Cervantes, he wrote Indoor Marijuana Horticulture which morphed into Marijuana Horticulture. Today the book is published in eight languages and has sold over a million copies worldwide.

"Jorge has been a guiding light for the cultivation community, and we are excited to amplify his skill for simplifying the complex nature of growing cannabis," said Tom Raikes of Seedsman. "In celebration of his legacy, we're offering the new e-book free. Jorge worked with our Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Gary Yates, to develop the first edition, and we hope to include more influential cultivators to contribute in upcoming editions.”
