Mango Thai Seeds Are Back

Finally, thanks to the generosity of a friend of Real Seed Co, the Mango Thai is back again. This strain was first available here around 2010, and was sourced in Vientiane Province, which these days is where much 'Thai' comes from.

Mango Thai, as I've named it, is a classic Thai-Lao ganja landrace. In other words, this is cannabis that has been domesticated for production of bud as opposed to hashish (resin). Along the middle Mekong, the ethnically Lao region of Isan (Northeast Thailand) and...[read more]

Further Stoned Ramblings on Charas

A couple of responses to the recent post about charas at the Real Seed Co blog have objected that it’s unduly harsh on Clarke and Merlin or even misrepresents what they wrote. So I’ve made a few changes aimed at removing any potential for misunderstanding. Clarke et al. use the names charas and hashish interchangeably to refer to resin, but state that ‘Charas refers more accurately to resin collected by hand-rubbing the flowers of living or freshly harvested plants.’ They strongly imply...[read more]Further Stoned Ramblings on Charas image.Further Stoned Ramblings on Charas image.Further Stoned Ramblings on Charas image.

Afropips Malawi Gold Is Here

Seeds of the Afropips Malawi Gold are available now thanks to a generous donation from the community.

Malawi's best ganja landraces are renowned for their vibrant, euphoric high and unique flavours. They're most closely associated with the Nkhotakota region. Traditionally, flowering tops are made into 'Malawi cobs' by wrapping the seedless or semi-seeded flowering tops in corn husks for storage and curing, as shown in the second photo.

According to the original Afropips description: "Mala...[read more]

Charas or Hashish? The Straight Dope on Old-School Cannabis Resin

New blog post on what charas really is, where it comes from, what it means, and who rights to the name: Central Asia and the Hindu Kush or the Indian and Nepali Himalaya.

The answer might surprise you. There's a lot of confusion on this issue, not least among old-timers and respected experts!

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q. Are your landraces pure or have they been crossed with modern hybrids?

A. We aim to collect pure landraces. Many of the regions where we have collected are dangerous, which means that few foreigners visit. This greatly reduces the chance of modern hybrids being introduced. There are a couple of regions in Asia where modern hybrids have become a problem, so purity cannot be guaranteed - notably, Parvati Valley, which includes Malana. However, to the best of our knowledge, our other Himalaya...[read more]

CBD in cannabis landraces

This post is intended to clear up some questions regarding CBD in 'drug' landraces.

For high-CBD chemotypes, you are best to try resin (ie, charas/hashish) landraces.

Landraces from the Himalaya, Middle East, and Hindu Kush can, as a rough 'rule of thumb', be expected to exhibit significant levels of CBD in approximately 75% of plants.

Evidence suggests that there are three basic chemotypes in traditional resin landrace crops:

1. Type 1 plants: high THC, low CBD
2. Type 2 plant...[read more]
