Benin plants are vigorous sativas with aromas of mint, mango, spicy and peppermint. Magical and unmistakable taste, intense, very fragrant to the palate. Potent  and long-lasting effect.

The sativas of Benin have a vegetative stage ranging from 11 to 16 weeks maximum, during this time they are dedicated to grow and create innumerable branches with short intermodal spaces that create beautiful and symmetrical tails of a bright yellow foliage. The leaves are composed of 3, 5, 7 and 9 long leaflets that seem very beautiful spears.

Benin reaches a height that goes from 1.5 to 3 metres. The stems are medium with  some reddish and purple with pleasant aromas of eucalyptus and citrus. The flowering stage is 12 weeks up to 14 weeks with a high medium production of abundant and resinous flowers that do not become compact.

All those branches that developed in the vegetative stage grow vigorous and with enough flowers with pointy and swollen calyxes. Aromas of spicy, mint, anise and peppermint. Some plants show a very nice coffee and  purple colour, others are almost orange and with very resinous stigmas. The taste is fruity and woody delivering a potent, psychoactive, lucid, euphoric and motivating effect. These plants have been cultivated from 1550 to 2200 m.a.s.l. showing no problems of any kind.
