This is a classic South Indian ganja landrace renowned for its intensely positive and stimulating ‘sativa’ high. Keralan cultigens have played a crucial role in the creation of foundational modern hybrids such as Haze and White Widow.
The equatorial highland district of Idukki, where this landrace was collected, is Kerala’s most respected centre of ganja cultivation.
This is a true tropical ‘sativa’, ranging between 2 and 4 metres tall, with characteristic bamboo-like leaflets. ‘Creeper’ and ‘Christmas-tree’ structures can be exhibited. Buds are loose and resinous with minty, peppery, and fruity aromas, yielding a pungent sweet smoke. The Kerala high is renowned for its energising positivity.
Regional planting is around June to July, with harvests from December to early February. But faster indivduals can be ready by late October to early November. Traditionally, farmers favoured a later harvest. The best plants show great potency and will have the characteristic elevating Kerala high.
A recent test of one plant reported 17.63% THC (or 14.86% THC, depending on how the result is interpreted). Mid to high teens THC is typical for this strain. The terpenoids of this particular plant were dominated by linalool, alpha-pinene, and humulene, with smaller amounts of myrcene and beta-pinene. No CBD was exhibited, as expected for a true South Indian landrace.
Note: This batch of seeds is the second generation from the original accession and has been reproduced outside Kerala through open pollination.
