The KwaZulu landrace is an interesting strain being used in the Zulu tribe under the King Shaka Zulu. These plants boast a THC reading of 17%. This strain is found from Cato Ridge to the Drakensberg Ridge mountain range. In the these plants natural environment they get to an insane size of 5 meters with a Christmas tree structure. The weather from the region during the veg. months is 28 – 32 Celsius and 86% relative humidity while during winter mnths when flowering happens temperatures drop from 24 down to 8 Celsius and relative humidity is around 60%
This strain is pest resistant as well as resilient to powdery mildew in high humidity regions. The effects when samples are of high euphoria with a long lasting energizing high. Most of the plants have a Christmas tree structure.
Most of the plants easily reach heights of up to 5 metres in their natural outdoor environment.
Pine and pepper are the most common terpenes to be found in this strain, however a pheno smelling of passion fruit has been also found in these plants.
This strain does not taste the best even after a cure but the kick after a few tokes leaves you forgetting about the taste and giggling like it’s your first high. The effect i slong lasting and slows down into a calm euphoria.
Outdoor and greenhouse work best for this strain, the stretch during pre-flower can quickly become out of control!
