A Nepalese landrace direct from Rolpa, Midwest Nepal, the Himalayan heartland of hand-rubbed high-mountain charas. Rolpa produced the classic old-school Nepali charas of the Hippie Trail-era. This is the landrace that fed the heads of ’60s Kathmandu, the strain from which Nepalese Temple Balls and the like were produced.

Traditional Himalayan landraces are typically multipurpose plants cultivated for their fibre, nutritious seeds, and hand-rubbed charas. This Nepali landrace from Rolpa is a domesticated plant with large leaves and medium-width leaflets. It’s primary purpose is commercial charas production. Expect soft, sticky charas with intense aromas and an uplifting high. CBD will be exhibited by a majority of plants.

Nepalese landraces haven’t yet been affected by introduced modern hybrids, but it’s only a matter of time. This is an absolutely authentic Nepalese landrace strain and a must-have for collectors.

Photos show dry-sieved Nepali charas, and two distinct landraces from Midwest Nepal, one specialized for resin, one multipurpose. They give an idea of what to expect from this landrace from Rolpa.
