An Iranian landrace from the Khorasan region of northeastern Iran, neighboring Turkmenistan and Afghanistan.
This is a high-yielding landrace with immense bud production. It was sourced through a long-term resident of Khorasan with deep knowledge of the area. Seeds are direct from local farmers.
Khorasan is an ancient center of cannabis culture. Most famously, it was the site of the khanqah of Qutb ad-Dīn Haydar, a Muslim mystic legendarily said to have discovered hashish. Best known to the West as Sheikh Haydar, his followers, the Haydaris, were famed for their extreme practices and chronic cannabis use.
Iranian landraces exhibit characteristics like those of Hindu Kush and Middle Eastern strains.
NOTE: This is a new accession from the 2019 harvest. Seeds are testing at close to 100% germination.
