cannabis landraces seeds

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.

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.

Landrace cannabis strains

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.

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.

Parvati is a resinous charas landrace strain from the Parvati Valley region of the Indian Himalaya. Parvati plants make soft, sticky charas akin to the famed Malana Cream, included above on this list. Parvati seeds germinate into tall, lanky plants that can reach over 15 ft. tall with long internodes and sparse buds, similar to other Himalayan landrace strains. A good strain for growing outdoors in damp, northern climates that handles rain, humidity, and wind well. The buds are floral, fruity, and very hashy. Seeds are sourced personally in Parvati by RSC.

While the strains on this list can be purchased at an online cannabis seed bank, another fun aspect of growing and breeding is finding your own rare cannabis genetics around the world in person. For example, here’s a Lao sativa that I saw growing in the Bolaven Plateau, near Pakse, Laos. It’s got very long “finger” leaves, and the buds give you a speedy, trippy high. More photos on my Tumblr. There’s many interesting genetics out there that you can make unique hybrids with or just enjoy pure.
