Pure old school Afghan Genetics collected in the 70’s and preserved by Mr. Tom Hill We greatly appreciate this “legacy”. The Landrace Team will never let such a line go lost and this is the reason we made it available to those who consider it a dream, we know that many yearn to have it. Again for everyone, a beautiful and productive selection of resin and vigour by The Landrace Team of this legendary Afghan genetics.
It grows with a beautiful shade of green and great vigour, thick stems, broad and large leaves of 5 and 7 leaflets, reaches a height of 60, 80 and 100 cm with short internodal spaces, when it is grown to more than 1400 metres above sea level (4500 feet) some phenotypes express beautiful purple and dark purple colours in their leaves and flowers, its vegetative stage is very fast, between 55 and 60 days. The petioles too are purple and some reddish.
Flowering this genetics is very peculiar since its female phenotypes are very resinous until its leaves. Even some males show resin. Flowering takes 7 to 8 weeks maximum during which it forms a large, very imposing main flower full of resin, its buds are like rocks that sprout resin, some do not show the vegetal matter due to the exaggerated accumulation of glandular trichomes, emanating aromas of pine, gasoline, solvents, wood, earth, hashy and leather notes on the flavour. Its production is not the best but everything is rewarded with the quality and quantity of resin. These plants do not like heavy feeding and heavy watering.
Its effect is of a quiet and sudden wave of euphoria and cheerfulness making you feel happy for no reason before the narcotic and sleepy effecst take over towards the end. It is worth having this old beautiful selection by The Landrace Team for breeding purposes or simply for those who love to collect old school lines which have never been outcrossed. It is possible (although not common) to find “sativa” expressions, at least in the leaves.
