A pure Hindu Kush landrace from Tirah Valley, a renowned centre of hashish production in Northwest Pakistan, bordering Afghanistan. Tirah landraces exhibit a spectrum of variation from Indica-type plants, i.e. short and heavily branched with relatively broad leaflets to Sativa-type variants, as in the “Khyber Sativa” strain of old seedbank catalogues.

Tirah Valley is in a region once known as the Tribal Agencies, a mountainous and ethnically Pashtun (Afghan) area beyond the direct control of the Pakistan government. The valley cuts through Orakzai, Kurram, and Khyber agencies. It’s a major centre of Cannabis cultivation and best known for Tirah garda, a refined form of hashish with a potent, narcotic effect. Tirah garda is usually blonde or golden, though it darkens and ‘melts’ with age.
