An old-school Lao cannabis landrace (i.e., ganja domesticate) sourced direct from the main ganja-growing highlands of central Laos, the mountains of Bolikhamsai Province, immediately east from the old ethnically Lao region of north Isan, famous for its ‘Thai Stick’.

Classic ganja with rich aromas, full smooth smoke, and blissful highs. Buds are resinous, with increasing resin production toward harvest.

Six months from seed to harvest is standard for Lao cannabis landraces, though earlier variants are closer to five months. Farmers in mainland Southeast Asia employ two main cycles, namely sowing around June and harvesting around December, or sowing around September and harvesting in the dry heat around April.

A grower in the West writes of this Highland Lao #3 accession that “The smell of the plants is musky fermented fruit and spicy tobacco.”

A review of our previous Bolikhamsai accession, sold as Highland Lao #2:

“An absolute pleasure to smoke. Just a really clean lift and positive attitude, bit of silliness,” wrote one indoor grower. “You lose your head a little, but in a good way. Blissful. Really peppery on the exhale.”

“A great experience, super clean and focused effect. Gets the brain working overtime, ready to tackle mental or physical tasks. Thought provoking. Smiles and giggles. Zero lethargy.”

Note that although from late 2021 to late March 2022 this current batch was sold as Highland Lao #2, this Highand Lao #3 is in fact a new and distinct Winter 2021 accession from a different source in the main cultivation centre of highland Bolikhamsai.

To avoid confusion, new accessions from the same region will now be numbered sequentially.
