Thai: an iconic landrace strain
Thai, also referred to as ‘Thai Sticks’, is an example of a landrace strain, meaning she has evolved in her natural environment away from the hands of man. Nature has cultivated this strain within Thailand for a long time, and the result is a 100% pure sativa variety.
Pioneers within the cannabis industry discovered this variety and brought it over to the US in the 1970s. These pristine landrace genetics were used to set the foundations for many iconic strains such as Northern Lights, AK-47, original Haze, Grapefruit, Chocolope and many more.
The buds of Thai weed are fluffy and contain a THC % of around 20%. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on Thai, she offers a clear headed high defined by cerebral, uplifting and euphoric sensations. Thai flowers give off pleasant smells and flavors of earthiness, woody and chocolate with a citrus/fuel aftertaste.
Growing Thai weed is not an easy thing to do. Thai is best suited to outdoor growth within tropical climates, although expert growers may be able to obtain good results in greenhouses. As often with pure sativas the flowering period of Thai can take forever. 14-16 weeks is quite common for these tropical gifts of nature, but even flowering times up to 20 weeks have been reported.
You also have to take her size in consideration; a fully mature Thai landrace strain is more a tree than a plant.
