Syrian

A hardy landrace cannabis variety adapted to hot desert summer days and cold nights, Syrian strains share similarities to Lebanese landraces from Bekaa Valley, likely due to Syria’s long tradition of cannabis cultivation, particularly in the mountainous western region bordering Lebanon. Two main phenotypes can be found, a most desirable indica ideal for hash making that stays near 3 feet tall and a more feral sativa that gets up to 5 feet high. Syrian plants benefit from dry periods between watering and the ideal phenos produce dense, “hash plant” buds packed with shiny crystals that give a positive, inspiring and relaxing high. Seeds obtained via local gene bank.

Your Own Strain Hunt

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 a lot of interesting genetics out there that you can make unique hybrids with or just enjoy pure.

Born 1954 & raised in Vancouver BC, Started puffin Weed in 1966′ age 12, My Buddies Older Brother went down to 4th. ave in Kitsilano and scored off the hippies….back then it was all Compressed Kilos of seed weed Mexican,
Seemed like they just tossed in handfuls of seeds in the bricks, we even found Peyote buttons in them….Then Some sensimilla made its way up Gorraro, Yucatan Panama even Acapulco, then different kinds of Columbian Gold Chocolate. There was actually homegrown weed being sold here in the early ’70s it was pounds and pounds of leaf with no bud in it…This gave homegrown a bad name that took many years to break out from. The Jamaican came in so hard-pressed we would heat it up with microwave to get it apart, bout that time the odd bit of super Californian bud was sneaking its way up …and some Maui Wowie made its way across the Pacific from Hawaii into Van. Then the untied Thai was coming in massive loads on mother ships …there was one load that was in vac-packed kilos with paper tags in them with an Eagle on it and it was the kill …lol…Outdoor finally cleaned up its act got organized and up to the times and started pumping out seedless bud …then around 1984//85 people slowly started growing indoor weed here, and It’s popularity took off like wildfire. In the beginning, LB.’s were going for 36 hun. The last big load of untied Thai came in about that time and didn’t do to well the indoor was all the rage. As the years passed if was all indoor and outdoor which kinda peaked at around 23 and then the teens …when 9-11 happened in 2001 the boarders tightened up and we came to a grinding halt on the exports south which caused a huge glut and prices fell dramatically ….In the past couple years to now, the outdoor hit an all-time low around 500/lb and the indoor anywhere from 900 to mid-range kushes etc around 12-14 hun and the high ends /Trip.s up to 17 & 18 hun/lb….
…Then there is the “”Turn Hashish into Ashe’s”” Saga … But I’ll save something for tomorrow … East Van Guy.

Awesome story Albert what a read thanks for posting that here! Please do share more when you can 🙂

legendary historian and storyteller!

Yea. . . great story.. . wish your wrote more 🙂

Yo, awesome story and basically all true old timer. Your awesome dude! Keep on telling!

that was nice. awesome concept for a podcast.

We started in high school with Mexican weed that had a high concentration, also, of seeds. Then came “sinsemilla” from Mexico which was easier to roll and of better quality, coming in from San Diego in kilos. We were then treated to indoor growers in 1971, one growing an African strain that had black, sticky buds that oozed when squeezed (never got to smoke it tho) and one who took the Santa Marta Gold seeds and produced a variety of outdoor and indoor buds, some being called laughing weed as we could not stop laughing when smoking and others that just tasted so nice that those Colombian seeds were the rage. One friend of a friend was arrested in S.F. for trafficking coke and called us, instead of his lawyer, cuz his experimental cross breeding in Oregon of all the Humboldt county seeds he collected, some with Hawaiian strains in the mix, were more important to him to keep from the DEA. We were treated to all those cross breeds as he put a bud and respective seeds in baggies with notes about their origins. We rolled joints and tasted the changes in strains as we smoked down the reefers. All the while, thai weed in stick form came with Panama Red and Alcupulco Gold. And then the bear cage hash was found by a hunter, or two, as the story goes, smuggled in square tubed bear caged, three i believe, and one broke open, losing both bear(s) and cargo. The hash was almost black with opium white streaks in the compressed fingers.

a lot of them good old school strains are gone now. i guess im very lucky to have some 1970s original colombian gold seeds still left
