Landrace Strains with The Real Seed Company | Podcast

Here’s a deep dive into cannabis culture featuring Angus from The Real Seed Company and Conor from CANNAMANtv. This episode journeys into the world of cannabis landraces: the botany, the charas trade, use in warfare, role in alchemy and mysticism, and more….

This is the first interview Angus recorded with Conor and provides a good overview of the rarely glimpsed world out of which landraces emerged – long before they were brought west by hippies and smugglers to form the basis of the modern strains most of us smoke today.

The second interview journeys deeper into the shared history of cannabis and alchemy.

The map shows East Indies trade routes of the 11th Century, at the middle of which are the Bay of Bengal, an expanse of ocean from which was soon to emerge ganja – the culture, the original landrace Sativas, and the product we now know as ‘bud’ or ‘sinsemilla’.
