Highland jungle sativa displaying a tremendous vigor. Cultivated by the members of the Akha tribal group, this sativa landrace from Northern Laos is both colorful and flavorful. The fastest-growing, most vigorous landrace variety that Khalifa Genetics has ever come across. This ganja strain could also be one of the fastest-flowering strains of all Southeast Asia. The plants can get huge very quickly but are fairly easy to manage even indoors thanks to their rather short flowering time.
The Akha Tribe may have brought seeds from nearby Yunnan into northern Laos as they fled China in the early 20th century. That would explain why this Sativa-looking cultivar also displays some Indica characteristics. Indeed, the sweet creamy aromas, relatively short flowering time and big trichome glands make this strain stand out from most tropical ganja cultivars. It suggests a possible connection between the Yunnanese landraces and the tall southeast Asian Sativas.
This highland jungle Sativa variety produces large and very round seeds. The plants have broad leaflets it their first stages of vegetative growth. The leaflets then become narrower though they will remain broader than most tropical landraces.
This cultivar is able to thrive in very poor soils without even showing signs of deficiency. Although the height gain is extreme during the flowering stretch, the plants start flowering very early on, after only 3 weeks.
Many plants turn light purple towards the end of their flowering cycle. The purple phenos tend to have deep berry aromas while the green buds often express more of a floral/vanilla smell. Although it is rare, a small portion of the green phenotypes have a hazy/citrusy nose.
The taste is also quite interesting as most flowers have a fruity/soapy and woody taste.
The potency of the flowers ranges from medium to strong according to the phenotype.
It is a clean energetic effect at first which slowly turns into a calm and pleasant relaxation.
Bodhi, famous strain hunter and breeder, collected the seeds directly at source during his 2014 yunnan china and northern laos seed safari. A joint preservation project with the Mitseedco then allowed the team at Khalifa Genetics to preserve this rare strain while improving its sexual stability indoors.
This rare highland Laotian cultivar is recommended to collectors, preservationists and breeders looking for immense vigor, mold resistance and unique terpene profiles.

|Resistance against botrytis||Very high|
|Resistance against white fly||Average-High|
|Resistance against cold||Average-Low|
|Resistance against heat||Average|
|Genetics||Landrace Strain (P3) open pollinated indoors to increase the sexual stability.|
|Structure||This vigorous cultivar will grow tall with extremely long internodes. About 40% of the phenotypes will turn light purple towards the end of the flowering cycle. The leaves may also turn purple/black. The buds are long and rather wispy.|
|Bouquet||Very sweet and creamy. Deep berry, vanilla, chocolate with notes of incense.|
|High||Clean, expansive and energetic at first, then soothing and relaxing.|
|Terpene profile||It has not yet been tested.|
|Growing Tips||Although this loatian cultivar flowers pretty quickly, the plants can grow very tall. For that reason, it is recommended to train the plants during the first 6 weeks of flowering and to use an MH or LED high in blue spectrum until the end of the stretch.
Even if these plants are vigorous and easy to grow, they are very sensitive to over-feeding. Therefore, it is advised that growers amend their soil with coco coir/sand/rocks in order to make it poorer.
