One of the coolest cannabis fun facts is the existence of the “Doomsday Vault.” It is a secret vault housing thousands of cannabis seeds and other plant species. The vault’s location is on the island of Svalbard, between the North Pole and Norway. The Doomsday Vault opened in 2008, but the idea dates way back to the 1980s. Former executive director of the Crop Trust, Carly Fowler, conceptualized the vault to store backups of various seed samples. The vault freezes the seed samples to preserve their integrity. Interestingly, the vault received one of its largest seed deposits in 2020. It welcomed over 60,000 seed samples from 36 different groups and countries.
