Authenic Himalayan cannabis landrace seeds of a charming rustic Himalayan hashplant. This strain is a specialised charas landrace unique to a few remote villages of northern Kumaon to the east of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary.

Unlike typical multipurpose fibre–seed–drug Himalayan crops, this strain is cultivated by farmers specifically for charas. The resin has an intense, soaring high that evens out into a long-lasting buzz.

Unusually early for a Himalayan strain, ‘Nanda Devi’ is harvested from mid-August to mid-September during breaks in monsoon rains. Buds are highly resinous and aromatic, producing charas that has a better, stronger high than the distinct large-seeded domesticate (known as ‘dati’) which local villages also cultivate. All Himalayan domesticates occur as components of cropweed complexes. However, wild-type var. himalayensis traits appear to be more pronounced in this accession than in multipurpose types.

Aromas are floral, tangy, herbal, and spicy. The traditional rustic braided charas this domesticate produces is somewhat harder and coarser than the typical Parvati type, but it has a very distinctive euphoric effectan uplifting and positive vibe that makes it special.

Fans of Himalayan charas such as the Nepalese of the sixties and seventies will enjoy these plants. Highly recommended for those wanting a pristine, traditional Himalayan charas strain.
