Cannabis seeds strains and their genetic origins

Although hundreds of regional sub-varieties have been developed by skilled home and professional marijuana seeds breeders, the foundational genetic stock of traditional cannabis seeds strains is well-known and respected. We can think of these genetic precursors as the basic colour palette from which breeders mix and match to create limitless diversity.

Base origins and history of cannabis strains:

Columbian: also known as "Gold," was one of the original sativa imports that fueled the marijuana renaissance in North America during the 1960's. Ohhhh the sweet smell and taste with a mellow high that can’t be matched. Sativa all the way. I miss the melow taste, not to mention the buzz from Columbian Gold. $40.00 an ounce those days. I remember complaining that Gold is all anyone ever had :-)

Thai: sometimes known as Thai Sticks, because this Asian sativa variety produces loose clusters which are often woven onto sticks of bamboo or cannabis stems. Often called Budha Bud Thai stick and came wrapped on a stick with a wierd green or red thread. One hit wonder for sure. Hybridized and crossed Thai marijuana seeds are still available on the Dutch online market.

Jamaican: these mostly sativa plants are fast-growing and reputed to produce a stimulating high. Jamaican is probably the result of crosses of Indian ganja, which arrived with the Indian immigrants who came to the country. The term for marijuana in Jamaica is ganja, the same as in India. The traditional Jamaican term for the best weed is Kali, named for the Indian killer goddess.

Mexican: the war on drugs has severely afflicted Mexican indigenous production. Some of the best cannabis used to come from Mexico, but these days "Mexican Brown brickweed" has become synonymous with "schwag." Good Mexican is a Sativa offshoot, and even though its THC is degraded by bricking and shipping, it can be a potent and hardy plant when raised in captivity.

Cambodian and Chinese: these cannabis varieties are often problematic. In China, cannabis is cultivated for hemp fiber. In Cambodia, Vietnam and nearby countries, plants often tend to be hermaphroditic, which means that they develop male and female flowers and if left unchecked can fertilize themselves. Some breeders allege that using seeds from mostly-female hermaphroditic parents will produce seeds that favour the female gender. Unfortunately, such seeds also tend to be hermaphrodites, resulting in compromised floral development and resin production.

African: South Africa is becoming one of the world's top pot producers. Some experts allege that South African pot contains a deviant THC molecule which produces super-hallucinogenic highs. Durban Poison is a South African strain. The more northern parts of Africa also produce regional varieties; the further north you go, the more likely the strains are to be Indicas. Ghana is famous for its marijuana cultivation. Many african cannabis seeds, original strains and hybridized ones can be purchased online.

Afghani: These are some of the first seed types collected by European and American cannabis researchers during the 1960's hippie era. Afghani and Hindu Kush are indicas which grow fast, have huge leaves, and produce a skunky, mentally-crippling high. These two varieties have become very popular with many commercial growers. Still one of widely sold marijuana seeds strains online.

Hawaiian: Island strains, such as Maui Wowie, used to be readily available. Then the DEA started a massive air war against Hawaiian growers, and these varieties became scarce. They are now used mainly in crosses, and often lean toward the Sativa end of the spectrum.

Unless you buy from a seed bank or breeder, it's hard to know for sure which of the above varieties you have in your private marijuana seed stash. The size and shape of leaves, maturation characteristics, and the visual appearance of floral clusters are some of the most reliable ways to determine what lineage your seeds come from.

Imported from South Africa, produced in Holland. Exclusively inbred, never hybridized, 100% Sativa. Well stabilized. Large long bud leaves, buds are also large and long with lots of resin. A sweet licorice or aniseed flavour. "Up" high similar to Thai. Well suited for crossing out with late bloomers to produce earlier flowering. The perfect outdoor plant for hotter climates, also does very well under artificial light. Sativa/Indica 100%/0% Great sativa, really dense with a great spicy taste and smooth, uplifting high. Nice. 8-9 weeks Indoor/Outdoor

A pure strain from darkest Africa "the original". Africa always produces amazing strains this one is special because it has not been crossed with other strains. It has a very hash like taste and nice high. Sativa/Indica 90%/10% An immediate rush! Hold it a sec, while my brain is telling my eyes to go on ahead!

A pure variety, never hybridized, imported from Afghanistan, grown in Holland. A weed from the good old days. Very broad leaves, 100% Indica. Mountainous conditions, over thousands of years have produced a very stocky, sturdy and disease resistant plant. Heavy buds with lots of resin. Some plants turn purple at harvest time. Rather high flower to leaf ratio. Aroma and flavour are heavy, almost medicinal. Very strong, physical, practically narcotic high. Sativa/Indica

For a pure afghani-indica I was expecting a big knockout and I wasn't disappointed with the "kick". I smoked a joint and it left me alone ! Very strong, physical, practically narcotic high. 8-9

Original Hawaiian strain crossed with Skunk#1. Hybrid with exceptionally broad leaves. Lots of resin on leaves as well as flowers, with a musky hash-like aroma. Strong physical high. Short rounded plants with wonderful red/orange pistols. Sativa/Indica 0%/100% Be seated (you'd be best off "strapped in") and have some nice fresh drinks handy when you are ready to hit this one off! The effects are powerful and immediate. This is not necessarily the best social gear as you are generally reduced to basic grunts and giggles. This weed gets you really baked and has you stumbling around in a permanent green-like state. Great if you need to relieve a concentrated body stress! 8 weeks Indoor
