Pure Colombian variety preserved since the 70’s It comes from the Cauca valley in the south of Colombia, from the lines that were grown in Corinto in a sector (Vereda) called “La Cominera” and “Caloto” in the Cauca valley . We say that “they were grown” because to find a Corinto in these places in Colombia is already impossible due to the invasion of early Dutch and American polyhybrids that can generate for a farmer in the area from 3 to 4 crops in a year, which represents a faster income, not like the Corinto sativa and her sisters like Punto Rojo that can take a total of up to 9 months to finish.
This line was locally called “Coro”. Some collectors call it also “Limon Verde”, “Cominera”, Corinto Purple” or “Corinto Monster”.
Its vegetative growth goes from 13 to 15 weeks, its flowering is from 12 to 16 weeks. It presents several phenotypes, some tall and others shorter, conical in shape and with a very imposing central flower The leaves are light green with 7 and 9 thin leaflets, some take on dark purple colours in the last stage of flowering in their leaves and flowers. It has great vigour and reaches great heights at an accelerated speed, reaching 150 cm (the smallest ones) up to 3 meters for the tallest ones.
After initiating its vegetative stage, it grows homogeneously, creating conical structures. The buds are even, dense, some are small with large and pointed calyxes, others are more abundant and with reddish stigmas, some have the aroma of lemon peels, paprika, cumin, fruits and tangerine. We have found up to 8 phenotypes. These plants have great potential in THC and a great capacity to reproduce trichomes.
The potency of these plants is, simply put, devastating. Corinto delivers a powerful psychoactive and euphoric high with a long lasting effect of up to 4 hours. It stimulates your appetite.
These sativas from Corinto are resistant to pests and diseases and extreme conditions, we have cultivated them from 500 to 2100 metres above sea level, their production is high for some phenotypes.
