Sativa-type landraces. Most Cannabis landraces exhibit plants that the vernacular taxonomy terms ‘Sativas’. The stereotypical Sativa of Western preconceptions is tall, narrow-leafleted, and late-maturing. Landraces conforming closely to this stereotype are common to tropical and subtropical Asia, where they’re cultivated for ganja, meaning high-THC inflorescences. Sativa-type morphology is also typical of Himalayan landraces, though these are usually earlier-maturing and have mixed THC:CBD cannabinoid profiles. Landraces from traditional hashish-producing regions such as Afghanistan, the Middle East, and North Africa can also show plants with some or all of the Sativa-type traits. In a landrace such as Mazari or Sinai, Sativa-type plants exist on a continuum of variation ranging from narrow-leafleted variants at one extreme to broad-leafleted at the other. Furthermore, landraces from regions closely associated with stereotypical Sativas can be consistently short or early-maturing, like Mel Frank’s original Durban Poison.
