‘Orissa Gold’ is the underground brand name often given to bud from this East Indian ganja landrace – a classic Sativa with rich tropical aromas and a strongly energizing and uplifting high.

Buds will express mint, fruit, and compelling old-school ganja scents. Highs are intensely stimulating – with a trippy edge like that of good Lao and Thai.

Narrow-leafleted plants with architecture that is heavily branched and tends toward Christmas-tree, though with some creeper or bush variants.

Leaning toward 5 months from seed to harvest, the Odia landrace is markedly earlier than the typical 6 month Sativas from Thailand and Laos. This is likely a result of decades of pressure from law enforcement crop eradication.

Historically, the tropical coastal region of Odisha (Orissa) and its inland jungle highlands are close to the centre of origin of Sativas and the ‘sinsemilla technique’. Ganja has long been both a household herb here and a commercial crop.

The method of roguing out males to produce a harvest of seedless, resinous buds was first described in a 15th century alchemical compendium, the Ānandakanda. The text was compiled at Srisailam, in the inland jungle highlands immediately south of Odisha.

The regions of East India along the Bay of Bengal are crucial centres from which Sativa landraces diffused to regions such as Thailand and East Africa during the Age of Sail.
