This is the authentic Mazar-i-Sharif strain known to Afghan farmers as 'Mazari', 'Balkhi', or 'Mazar-i-Sharif'. Please note that if a source is selling a small, short strain as 'Mazar-i-Sharif' this is a sure sign that the source is unreliable. The true Mazar-i-Sharif is large and high-yielding, exhibiting plants that can be broad- to narrow-leafleted and range from 2 to 4 metres in height.
The Mazar-i-Sharif strain originates in the Balkh region of Northern Afghanistan, the heartland of Afghan cannabis culture. Balkh lies beyond the Hindu Kush, in a region once known as Afghan Turkestan, which is part of the historic Turkestani homeland of the world's original hashish culture. Northern Afghanistan continues to carry the legacy of historic centres of fine Turkestani hashish such as Bokhara in neigbouring Uzbekistan.
The notable diversity of the Mazari strain, which exhibits both 'sativa' and 'indica' characteristics, suggests that it originated through hybridisation. It may be a hybrid between broad-leaflet landraces from the Hindu Kush and narrow-leaflet Turkestani landraces such as were observed by Vavilov in the twenties.
Afghan farmers harvest this strain in October to produce the legendary 'Shirak-i-Mazar' ('Milk of Mazar') charas, arguably the finest oldschool hashish. Note that Afghans refer to resin as 'charas' or 'garda'.
As with all hashish landraces, this cultigen shows chemotypes ranging from high THC to high CBD.
Highly recommended to breeders. Essential for collectors.
Please note: These seeds are the third generation to have been produced outside Afghanistan through open pollination.
