A pure landrace from Balkh, the hashish heartland of northern Afghanistan, a crucial centre of cannabis culture and biodiversity.

This is a resinous and heavily branched landrace strain with intense aromas ranging from citrus and lime to pine, sandlewood, and burnt rubber. Semi-dwarf expressions be found in this landrace, with almost spherical architecture. Leaflet-width can also vary from broad through to narrow. Northern Afghan landraces cannot be easily categoried according to Western preconceptions about Indica- or Sativa-type strains.

As with all resin landraces, expect to find chemotypes ranging from THC- to CBD-dominant, as well as other cannabinoids such as THCV. This landrace differs from the very large strain sold by Real Seed Co as Mazar-i-Sharif. Highly recommend to breeders. Essential for collectors.
