A classic high-mountain strain from the alpine ranges of West Nepal, famed for charas with warmly positive and soaring highs.
Charas from Jumla achieved a legendary reputation during the heyday of the Hippie Trail, gracing the menus of the hashish emporiums of Kathmandu.
In an earlier age, in centres of decadent Indo-Persianate hashish culture such as Lucknow, the finest charas from West Nepal is said to have fetched more than its weight in gold.
Plants and products appear to as yet be pristine, unaffected by modern hybrids, unlike in regions such as Kullu and Parvati.
