This Siberian landrace is a resinous, day-neutral (autoflowering) intermediate type direct from Chelyabinsk, close to Kazakhstan. This genepool neighbours some of the most ancient Asian centres of cannabis culture, namely the Central Asian steppe, once home to history’s original dope fiends, the Scythians.
These plants are something of a mystery. The theory among local people is that they may have originated in Kazakhstan. Several characteristics suggest they are descended from an imported hashish landrace: domesticate seed structure, intense resin, powerful aromas, and definite psychoactivity. Conceivably this population originated as a hybrid between an introduced Kazakh landrace and local Siberian ruderal populations.
Seeds are quite small, silver, and mottled, with somewhat elongated horseshoe bases on some specimens, indicating the presence of ruderal (‘wild’) genetics. Cold-treating is advisable for best results.
CBD chemotypes are likely. Very fast flowering and hardy, these plants are well-suited for northern latitudes.
NOTE: Seeds of ruderal Cannabis exhibit variable germination rates.
