A new accession from a crucial Lao centre of production of ‘Thai’ ganja a short way north along the Mekong River from a famous town for ‘Thai Stick’, Nakhon Phanom.
Ganja is a common household plant in this region of Laos, particularly among ethnic Tai rice-farming lowland communities such as the Lao. Families may also cultivate large fields as an additional source of income, to supplement low salaries.
In Central Laos, commercial cultivation of ganja expanded with Western demand for Thai Stick in the late 60s and increased through the 80s after US-driven crackdowns across the Mekong in northern Isan.
Throughout the tropics ganja is cultivated as a 6-month crop, seed to harvest.
Expect rich intense aromas and highs that bring a positivity most tokers in the West have forgotten exists.
The discount price on this accession should not be misunderstood to indicate quality. This is about making these rare old-school strains accessible to all cultivators and also to encourage exploration.
