Most agree that this plant probably originated around 13,000 BC in Central Asia. The oldest weed varieties in the world are classified as local varieties. Cannabis Sativa is probably the oldest scientific name given to a strain of marijuana that is pure sativa and is not hybrid. The cradle of the native strains of Cannabis sativa is Asia, Anatolia and North Africa.
These native varieties tend to be much taller (up to 3-4 meters) and thinner than their Indica counterpart, with greater internodal spacing and long, often airy flower clusters, and significant stretching during their very long flowering period. The leaves are thin and have deeply toothed striations. The aroma of Sativa flowers is often described as fruity and floral. The native strains of cannabis sativa have adapted to a life near the equator with longer summers and more intense sunlight, and cannot mature properly even in temperate northern or southern latitudes.
Some famous Sativa strains are Thai, Acapulco Gold, Durban Poison and Panama Red. It shouldn't surprise us where Afghan weed comes from, and it's one of the most recognizable native varieties in the world. This strain stays true to its Indica origins by inducing a long but pleasant high that closes the sofa. This sensation will go very well with the beautiful combination of sweet, spicy and skunk aromas of this bud.
Afghani and Afghani 1 feminized seeds are worth a look for those who love this charming indica. These strains are known to grow to manageable heights and produce large yields, despite their compact structure. The dense and heavy buds will make you an Afghan defender for life. Unlike the previous strain, Thai is a pure sativa.
This means it will give you a cerebral and energetic high that is perfect for any waking up and baking. In addition, the effects are often uplifting and creative; if you're struggling with some kind of artistic block, a bowl of Thai will surely get you out of it. Overall, it's the perfect strain for the productive smoker. But don't smoke it at night unless you're planning to spend the whole night.
We have a couple of great strains made from these legendary genetics. Thai Fantasy is very easy to grow outdoors and will withstand harsh conditions due to its robust and vigorous nature. The AK-420 is a tough, high-yielding specimen that is an excellent choice for any novice grower. Nepalese refers essentially to any strain grown in the region of Nepal.
This includes the country itself and nearby surrounding areas. This environment has imbued Nepalese genetics with super earthy genetics with a touch of berry sweetness. These strains are known to have the relaxing and stimulating effects of an indica, with the growth profile of a sativa. It is not difficult to guess the homeland of this particular native strain.
Cannabis was used in Afghanistan for centuries and became illegal only in 1957, although the law was not very strict. The Afghan herb is known for its potency and has bred many excellent varieties. The strain is pure Indica with around 20% THC. It provides a sweet and pine flavor and a little bit of spice and makes users calm and relaxed.
It has closed couch effects and real physical body high. It's not always easy to find pure Afghan cannabis, but it was used in breeding such popular strains as Blueberry and Northern Lights. Chocolate Thai: Although Chocolate Thai is descended from Thai, this strain is still considered an important local strain. In the 70s and 80s, this strain was commonly known as “Thai Sticks” in North America because of the way this strain was traditionally dried and tied.
Outside of tropical climates, this strain is difficult to grow outdoors, but many domestic growers in North America have succeeded in breeding Thai to create other varieties such as Juicy Fruit and Voodoo. There may come a day when global cannabis markets will open, giving us direct access to native varieties from all over the world, however, until that day, here are some heirloom varieties you can find in your local store to keep you. Landrace strains are the only 100% Indica or Sativa strains in the world, as all others are considered hybrids. Different strains can survive in different conditions and, in general, marijuana is quite adaptable.
If you get a true native strain, it will most likely be less potent than a strain you find today, as current strains are usually created for greater potency. For example, Strain Hunters is the project that travels around the world looking for new intact cannabis strains. Strainhunters travel the world to find and collect practically intact native strains to recover original genetic material that can be used to develop new strains with. Most people have no idea about the strain in question and it is often discussed whether that particular strain actually exists or not.
Whether a native strain was brought to a different climate or even bred with another native strain, all of these strains are incredibly important in the history and evolution of cannabis. . .
