Syria has a long tradition of cannabis cultivation, particularly in the mountainous western region bordering Lebanon. This is a fast-flowering strain sharing characteristics with Lebanese landraces from Bekaa Valley and, to a lesser extent, with Turkish landraces. Aromas are intense fruit and tangy candy.

Two phenotypes can be found, namely ‘indica’ and ‘sativa’. Indica-type plants can be expected to range from 0.6 to 0.9 metres. Sativa-type plants approximate 1.2 to 1.5 metres in height. The indica-type plants are more desirable compact hashish plants, whereas the sativa-type appear to have typical have ruderal characteristics. As expected for a hashish landrace, chemotypes range from THC- to CBD-dominant.

Plants require light nutrient regimes and benefit from being given a dry period between watering. The strain is hardy, being adapted to a desert climate of hot days and cold nights.

The resin provides a positive, inspiring high with a feeling of mellow, physical relaxation.

Recommended to collectors, particularly because Syria is likely to remain inaccessible for the forseeable future.

Note: These seeds were not obtained by RSC directly from Syria. However, a reproduction was run and a small number of packs have been made available after receiving several requests from interested collectors.
