The Arcadia cannabis strain, native to the picturesque Peloponnese region of Greece, is a botanical gem that has captivated marijuana lovers around the world. With its pure lineage and distinguished genetics, Arcadia is a testament to the natural splendor found on this historic Greek peninsula.

The Landrace Team offers you regular seeds from the legendary Arcadia, a fascinating and attractive choice for any cannabis enthusiast. Arcadia, a region with an ancient tradition in cannabis cultivation, located on the Peloponnese peninsula in Greece, is a mountainous paradise of natural beauty and rich history.

Known for its stunning landscapes and cultural heritage, Arcadia is a place where Greek mythology comes to life. Its lush forests, picturesque valleys and charming traditional villages offer a haven of tranquility and an ideal environment for outdoor exploration.

In this region, there are ancient natural sanctuaries, and a deep-rooted agricultural tradition that has historically included the cultivation of cannabis. Arcadia is a destination that combines the serenity of nature with the rich cultural heritage of Greece, making it a unique and fascinating place to visit.

The cannabis produced in this area gained special popularity during the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century when large quantities of hashish made in Greece were exported to cover the growing demand for this product in cities of great importance, such as Cairo or Alexandria, long before Morocco became the main producer of hashish of all countries in the Mediterranean and will go on to snatch the world crown from Afghanistan.

This variety of cannabis grows without problems in the Mediterranean climate. These are plants of medium height (about 2.5 meters max) that grow slender and with good lateral branching, with a moderate demand for nutrients and water. Its roots develop quickly and its clones root quickly and smoothly too. Taking into account that it is a variety traditionally used for the production of hashish (although it can also be grown for flower), its buds are relatively airy and with a good amount of trichomes, with a structure similar to that of other varieties of Mediterranean origin like Lebanese, Egyptian and Moroccan.

Outdoors it will begin flowering between the end of July and the beginning of August, being ready for harvest during the first half of October (Northern Hemisphere). Another notable characteristic of Arcadia is its high resistance to pests and especially fungi, thanks in part to the structure of its flowers.

In indoor cultivation, its stretch must be taken into account during the pre-flowering phase, so the plants can go into flowering with a relatively small size. The flowering phase can last between 8 and 9 weeks, during which time it will reward the grower with aromatic flowers covered in resin.

The flavour and aroma of Arcadia are complex, fusing citrus and herbal notes with spicy, earthy and woody nuances, a flavor that translates into resin concentrates with excellent organoleptic qualities, worthy of its lineage. For its part, the effect is relaxing and creative, rather introspective in nature and ideal for artistic activities or for a good reading session.



The Arcadian variety in my opinion is a cannabis plant resistant to almost all diseases, resistant to pests and fungi, it went through rain and storms for two weeks without suffering. The structure of the plant is sativa, very elegant, with many branches, medium-sized buds with incredible terpenes and aromas like cedar,lemon,thyme, sage,frankincense and oregano).

The smoke is easy and smooth, it smells great, you feel that whole blend of herbs in your throat that could easily come from the Greek botanical biodiversity of the Arcadian land. I personally like this Greek sativa because of this beautiful mix of herbs that dominate the plant profile. At first you feel it in the head like a clean high, euphoric, then a light indica effect in the eyes and body. A beautiful sequel that holds up well.

It lifts you up and relaxes you at the same time. It was planted at 1000 metres (3200 ft) above sea level in the mountains Without any nutrients. It was harvested by mid-October. This particular plant reached 2 meters, and of course it has potential to reach greater height. The dried weight was about 550 grams (20 ounces).


Amazing pure sativa from the Peloponnese! It smells of chamomile,basil,lemon,grass and oregano.Just made one joint and … I don’t have words. Fresh herbs in my mouth. Totally Greek sativa from the past. Beautiful sativa slap, it’s like a wake-up call to dance the zorba!


We made hash from the Arcadia. Amazing! It smells of herbs and the old school aroma of the old school hash. The effects are: expanding the mind and you want to do things,very creative, makes you want to play music, dance, uplifting hash without bad effects, very clear in the mind. Amazing experience to be able to make hash from these plants. This hash is a piece of history. My wife said this hash is very strong. So cool! So nice experience



Finally the arcadia is the plant I like. it is not such a tall tree but it yields excellent and makes great hash, a plant that does not get sick and does not last as long as the Kalamata Red. Also the Kalamata is a resistant plant, just that it is more trippy.
