This Turkish landrace has similar characteristics to Middle Eastern strains such as the Lebanese and Syrian: fast-flowering, compact, and resinous. Its aromas are hashy, floral, and spicy, with notes of coffee on curing. Its intensity of effect is moderate, suggesting CBD is present, as is typical in Middle Eastern landraces. Leaflets are predominantly narrow but can be medium-width.
Most likely this Turkish landrace is or was a hashish cultigen and will consequently exhibit a range of chemotypes from THC- to CBD-dominant.
Regional harvest is from late-August through September, making it well-suited for northern latitudes.
The line drawing shows a seventeenth century Turkish qalandar dervish, the radical Muslim mystics at the forefront of popularising chronic cannabis consumption across the Middle East, Balkans, and North Africa as far as southern Spain.
