Collected at an elevation of 2000 metres above sea level in the province of Mae Hong Song Thai Mountain is a plant of great vigour, exuberant foliage, thick stems, and special flowering. Its vegetative stage goes from 14 weeks to 18 weeks, it reaches from 1.50 metres to 4 metres in its natural outdoor environment. Its structure is conical, serrated and giant leaves of 1,3, 5, 7 and 9 leaflets, its seeds are large and usually the colour of these goes between hues of cream and gray. The internodal spaces are wide, others have medium intermodal spaces, some develop their first pair of branches when they are between 50 cm -70 cm tall. Their branches are very strong and hard, the spaces between buds is distant in those with more slender structure. It is resistant to extreme conditions such as lack of water and excess of water, resistant to pests and fungi. Its flowering ranges from 11 weeks to 16 weeks some phenotypes of long flowering; its floral structure in some plants is spiked and in others is larger and somewhat harder, more compact but also airy. Some phenotypes show a clear hue of clear purple at the end of their flowering, some with red tones. Their calyxes are big and pointed with beautiful resin that emanates aromas of lime, sweets, others emanate carrot scents with a very subtle touch of mint. Its pistils are very small. Its effect is active, energetic and motivating. It is ideal for the day.
*** COMMENT FROM A GROWER ***
The Thai is still in senescence. Its large glands are expanding by the day and it offers the smell of grape, lime and a strangely attractive cat piss/onion smell depending on the plant. It has huge, exotic looking, running calyxes that are going to be a joy to consume.
*** COMMENT FROM A GROWER ***
I allowed the buds to cure for a month. It seems to make a big difference in terms of flavour profile and potency, at least to me.
Just a quick smoke report snippet: The Thai Mountain was sampled this morning after a month long cure and was noticeably more potent as well as smoother in flavour (more grapefruit and less cat piss). Since I immediately felt the effect in my temples upon exhaling, I stopped after two hits. It went from my temples, down the sides of my face and, like a face lift, pulled everything back into a wide smile with narrowed eyes. Vaso-dilation remained minimal for the entire experience. It was extremely functional, but with great presence. I listened Jimi and Gary Clark Jr, while making my entire family breakfast. Two hours later, I was still pleasantly high while I cleaned the bathroom. Excellent, euphoric, motivating smoke. It reminds me why I started smoking 40 years ago. Back then it was seeded Mexican brick, often with mummified lizard and tarantula carcasses between the flattened buds. Needless to say, this sativa experience was exponentially better. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy this pure effect again!
