An authentic Afghan cannabis landrace from Sheberghan, a renowned centre of charas (hashish) production in northern Afghanistan. Sheberghan is an ethnically Uzbek region, linking it to the historic centres of cannabis culture to its north in Bukhara. Cannabis crops from Sheberghan were scientifically documented as early as 1924 by the great Russian botanist and geneticist Nikolai Vavilov.

Seeds of this Afghan accession were obtained directly from skilled charas farmers. As is typical of northern Afghan strains, this Sheberghan landrace is large-leaved, resinous, and heavily branched. Expect intense aromas of citrus, fruit, and hash. This accession appears to be var. afghanica.

Harvest in this region is from October to early December. Farmers favour leaving crops late, well into senescence, which is believed to yield the finest resin.

Chemotypes are likely to range from THC- to CBD-dominant. Other cannabinoids such as THCV are likely to be exhibited.

Highly recommend to breeders. Essential for collectors.

NOTE: The current seeds are stock from an ex-situ maintenance grow using open pollination (August 2023).
