An old-school Lao ganja domesticate direct from the main ganja-growing highlands of central Laos, namely the mountains of Bolikhamsai Province.
A grower in the West writes of this Highland Lao #3 accession that “The smell of the plants is musky fermented fruit and spicy tobacco.”
Lao and Thai ganja strains take 6 months from seed to harvest, though earlier variants are closer to 5 months. Farmers in mainland Southeast Asia employ two main cycles, namely sowing in June to July and harvesting in Dec to January, or sowing in August to September and harvesting in February to March.
Photos are from a customer who described the plants as “spicy, peppery acidic, and more and more resinous” closer they got to harvest. Expect ganja with rich aromas, smooth full smoke, and euphoric highs.
Note that though from late 2021 to late March 2022 this batch was sold as Highland Lao #2, this is a new and distinct Winter 2021 accession from the main cultivation centre of highland Bolikhamsai.
To avoid confusion, new accessions of the same type or from the same region will now be numbered sequentially.
