Direct from Rasol village, this Himalayan landrace produces a highly distinctive hand-rubbed high-mountain charas.
The best Rasoli is recognizable by its amber colour and inimitable aroma. It’s regarded by many aficionados as the finest charas of the Parvati region, better even than Malana.
Expect tall plants with long internodes and loose, intensely resinous Sativa-type buds. Most of all, expect gorgeous aromas and smooth, blissful highs.
One theory is that the Rasoli strain began as a hybrid between introduced Nepali plants and the original Malana landrace. Based on its scents, this seems quite plausible.
Note: Landraces in this region are increasingly affected by introduced modern hybrids. Collectors are advised that purity cannot be guaranteed. Equally, acquiring these landraces before hybrid contamination worsens is advisable.
