Landrace cannabis seeds

Pure cannabis strains (also called landraces or purebreds) have developed in its natural environment and has never been crossed with any other strain but inbred through many, many generations. These varieties are very stable and present very few variations – if any from one plant to another.

Most landrace genetics are then 100% Sativa or 100% Indica, although there are some exceptions. Normally, pure or landrace cannabis strains often include their country or region of origin in their name. Examples: Hindu Kush (Indica), Acapulco Gold (Sativa), Panama 74 (Sativa), etc.

Pure strains have the advantage of offering very original flavors and effects, pretty different of those from today’s hybrids, which often contain the same genetic basis (Skunk, Haze, etc.).

These pure strains will bring amazing memories to smokers from the 60s/70s, since at that time this was the type of marijuana normally available on the market.

Here you’ll find a list with all the pure marijuana strains from our catalog. We also include in this category those varieties created from crosses between two and three pure genetics.

Characteristics: Stout,stocky,hardy,squatty,bushy plants but also christmas-tree like.

Seeds have been collected from at least 10 different regions in Iran. So you will find a bit of a mixed bag. Plants are not domesticated, rather wild and unpredictable in terms of growth pattern and shape.
Many expressions can be found. From christmas trees to more squatty, round and bushy plants. Same goes for the leaf shape. Deep dark green leaves very fat, thick,broad and wide but also more slender types with narrow leaves and lighter hues of green. From 100% indica structures with short flowering times to sativas requiring up to three, four months to finish and all kinds of mixtures of both and anything in between. Plants with a single main stem with one main cola and few side branches have been seen as well as thick round bushes.

Plants with indica growth patterns but with sativa flowering times cannot be ruled out. It is possible to find plants with purple and dark brown (almost black) leaves. These plants have higher contents of CBD as well as THC. Very good plant for extractions with copious quantities of resin.

Smells vary from plant to plant. It is possible to find lemon, citrusy, berries, fuel, candies, honey and others hard to describe. Flowers are pretty compact but not all. Some also more airy.

There is so much variation in all the seeds and plants that the likelihood of them being wild or coming from wild plants is high. Some come from areas that have a very long history in growing for hashish production and are in remote areas far away from cities and pollution.

Very potent and instant buzz. In some cases with instant laughters with uplifting sensations and a constant feeling of cheerfulness. A tingling in the chest area has been noted. The locals have the habit of smoking without adding tobacco. It kicks in immediately and you feel it right into your chest and it’s hard to hold back the cough even if you’re an habitual smoker. There is a pleasant warmth behind the eyes and a buzz in your head as well with a feeling of tranquil contentment. There is a strong impression and possibility that some of these plants have not been farmed by humans for many many years due to the fact that they are very unpredictable while growing. Every plant is different from others, both in shape and height. This is what has been noticed on several occasions.

Below is a link to a scientific study: ‘Assessment of Genetic Diversity and Population Structure in Iranian Cannabis Germplasm’ which can be very interesting and that can be summarized as follows:

  1. Iranian cannabis is closer to drug cannabis than hemp.
  2. Iranian cannabis is genetically unique.
  3. Hemp cultivars were probably derived from marijuana cultivars.
  4. Iranian strains are probably accessions that represent remnants of cultivated varieties from other regions. (Probably Afghanistan, Pakistan. That’s not to say they are Affie or Paki strains. They’d have reached Iran so long ago they are unique, and there is the possibility that the ancestral populations in the region they came from have disappeared).
  5. Iranian cannabis diversity is threatened by prohibition.
  6. Iranian cannabis varies on an East/West gradient.
  7. Looks like preserving Iranian genepool is very important. Especially from a drug/medical perspective.
