A pure landrace direct from Chitral, home to the highest mountains of the Hindu Kush and a crucial centre of Cannabis biodiversity.

This Chitrali landrace strain was sourced from charas farmers in Chitral. Intensely resinous plants with broad to narrow leaflets. Aromas range from citrus, through sweet hashish and mint to gas. Expect variations on the Chitrali landrace theme and plants ranging from THC- to CBD-dominant, as is typical of Hindu Kush resin landraces.

This accession was made in the Kunar River valley, very close to the border of Afghanistan and the region formerly known as Kafiristan. The Kunar Valley is believed by some experts to the origin of Indica-type cannabis.

This is a new opportunity to obtain first-generation genetics from this invaluable landrace region. Essential for collectors.

NOTE: May benefit from heat mats.
