Lao Highland sativa displays tremendous vigour. Cultivated by the members of the Akha tribal group, this sativa landrace from Northern Laos is both colourful and flavourful.
The fastest-growing, most vigorous landrace variety we have ever come across. The plants can get huge very quickly but are fairly easy to manage even indoors thanks to their rather short flowering time.
The Akha Tribe may have brought seeds from nearby Yunnan into northern Laos as they fled China in the early 20th century. That would explain why this cultivar has the appearance of a typical sativa but also displays some indica characteristics. Indeed, the sweet creamy aromas, relatively short flowering time and big trichome glands make this strain stand out from most tropical cultivars. It suggests a possible connection between the Yunnanese landraces and the tall southeast Asian Sativas.
This Lao highland variety produces large and very round seeds. The plants have broad leaflets in their first stages of vegetative growth. The leaflets then become narrower though they will remain broader than most tropical landraces.
This cultivar is able to thrive in very poor soils. This is why the growing media should not be too rich. Although the height gain is extreme during the flowering stretch, the plants will begin flowering within the end of the third week. Outdoor Harvest: November to December.
Many plants turn light purple towards the end of their flowering cycle. The purple phenos tend to have deep berry aromas while the green buds often express more of a floral/vanilla smell. Although it is rare, a small portion of the green phenotypes have a hazy/citrusy nose.
The taste is also quite interesting as most flowers have a fruity/soapy and woody taste. The potency of the flowers ranges from medium to strong according to the phenotype.
It is a clean energetic effect at first which slowly turns into a calm and pleasant relaxation.
Bodhi, famous strain hunter and breeder, collected the seeds directly at source during his 2014 Yunnan China and northern Laos seed safari. A joint preservation project with the Mit Seed Co then allowed the team at Khalifa Genetics to preserve this rare strain while improving its stability indoors.
This rare Lao highland cultivar is recommended to collectors, preservationists and breeders looking for extreme vigour, mould resistance and unique terpenes.
