Balochistan is one of the four provinces of Pakistan. It is the largest one in terms of land area, forming the southwestern region of the country but it’s the least populated. Balochistan shares borders with Punjab anf Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to the northeast, Sind to the east and southeast, the Arabian Sea to the south, Iran to the west and Afghanistan to the north and northwest.The main ethnic groups in the province are the Baloch people and the Pashtuns. Smaller minorities formed by Hazaras and Brahuis along with other settlers such as Sindhis, Punjabis, Uzbeks and Turkmens.

The region is largely underdeveloped, its provincial economy is dominated by natural resources such as natural gas fields. Balochistan is known for its unique culture and extremely dry desert climate. It’s a harsh climate characterizd by very hot summers and dry cold winters. The only exceptions are the areas in the South where the climate is milder due to its vicinity to the Arabian Sea.

The climate of the upper highlands is characterised by very cold winters and hot summers. In the lower highlands, winters vary from extremely cold in northern districts to milder conditions closer to the Makran coast. Winters are mild on the plains, with temperature never falling below freezing point. Summers are hot and dry, especially in the arid zones. The plains are also very hot in summer, with temperatures reaching 50 °C (122 °F).  The desert climate is characterised by hot and very arid conditions. Occasionally, strong windstorms make these areas very inhospitable. Balochistan lies between 27 and 29 degrees North of the equator. These seeds come from a small village in the district of Mastung.

The characteristics of these plants is that which they can survive even in the harshest of climates, including prolonged periods of water scarcity and extreme day and night temperatures.  Balochistan, as a matter of fact, suffers from frequent water shortages. You won’t find plants that will take longer than 11 weeks to complete their flowering cycle. If you are growing outdoor expect your plants to finish no later than end of October (this is when plants are harvested  in Balochistan).

Over the years famers have differentiated plants and therefore kept specific seeds from specific plants, understanding that each seed coming from a different plant  will give different end results, phenotypical expressions in terms of colours, aromas (terpene profiles) and effects. The soil in this region where these plants grow on is predominantly made of sand and clay and it can be considered as desert like in the balochi counterpart situated in the South East of Iran. The best plants are those that finish later (10-11 weeks) and are used to make a great quality hashish with aromas that range from lemon to petrol, earthy and fruity. Different effects can be experiencd. Some will tie you to the couch and some will give you the giggles. Like in most cases with true landrace genetics expect to find expressions ranging from indica to sativa expressions (leaf morphology and plant structures and shapes).
