A new accession from the Bokeo region of northwest Laos, immediately east of the Mekong – a distinct type from our earlier ‘Bokeo’ offering, hence the new number.
Sourced from farmers in communities that emphatically do not have contacts with the kind of Asians or Westerners who might introduce modern hybrid seeds. Furthermore, fields and plots are far distant from any conceivable source of contamination, isolated by hundreds of kilometers of sparesly populated highlands and jungle.
In other words, we have every reason to believe that – as with all our accessions from Southeast Asia – these are seeds from absolutely pristine and authentic traditional ganja domesticates. Exploring these accessions now – not waiting for reports posted in online realms where ulterior motives are rife – is strongly advised.
Please note that currently even the best specialist and academic studies on ‘landraces’ and traditional cannabis cultures are produced by outsiders with little to no direct experience of these regions. ‘Armchair speculation based on armchair speculation’ is a very fair description of received wisdom in the West as regards the status of old-school ganja strains. For those of us who do know Laos first-hand and over decades, what comes across clearly in these publications and online forums is that authors do not grasp how the culture and economy of ganja cultivation works – or the practical implications for how, where, and by who fields are sown, when the issue at hand is these crops remaining unaffected by Western hybrids.
As ever on all our sites, prices should not be taken as necessarily indicating quality.
All tropical ganja is cultivated as a six month crop, seed to harvest. The ultra-long flowering tropical Sativa is a myth born in the indoor era.
