A Lao ganja domesticate direct from the highlands of Central Laos.

An indoor grower describes the high of his crop:

‘Makes you forget you exist. A complete exodus from the grips of The Matrix. Weed for space cases that need their space. 100% cerebral deep space exploration, no anxiety or paranaoia, but a heavy duty experience that keeps you wanting more. For me this is what I really look for medicinally in a true “Sativa” variety. Naturally turning purple with no cold weather or temperatures influencing.’

This strain was collected in the highlands of Bolikhamsai Province. Large-scale commercial cultivation has migrated to this region due to crackdowns on cultivation along the Mekong in lowland Laos and neighboring Isan, Northeast Thailand. These are the two historic centres of the ganja aficionados in the West know as ‘Thai’ or ‘Thai Stick’. Both regions are predominantly ethnically Lao.

Typical Lao and Thai ganja landraces take six months from seed to harvest. Farmers in mainland Southeast Asia employ two main cycles, namely sowing in June to July and harvesting in Dec to January, or sowing in August to September and harvesting in February to March.

This accession was obtained from Lao farmers in Bolikhamsai who cultivate for the Thai market. The seeds are from this season’s earliest harvested plants, which were taken down at the end of October.

Aromas are musky, spicy, and strongly citrus.
