A cannabis landrace collected outside Kandahar, a crucial region for Cannabis. An ancient centre of cannabis biodiversity and a historic centre of cannabis production long prior to the Hippie Trail era, Kandahar was exporting charas (hashish) south to what are now Pakistan and India.
In the late ’60s the city of Kandahar became a stop on the Hippie Trail. Most famously, the Brotherhood of Eternal Love began exporting hashish from here to America. In 1971, the Harvard ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes undertook an expedition to the region at the request of the Brotherhood. In the deserts of the province, he formulated his concept of Cannabis indica as a distinct species unique to Afghanistan.
These Kandahari seeds are a reproduction of the original accession made in 2019. Viability tested at 100%, but allow up to two weeks for seedlings to show.
