This Ethiopian cannabis is an African sub-tropical land-race sativa strain whose many qualities make it worthy of preservation. Ethiopian displays classic characteristics commonly found in African sativas, viz. tall plants with highly vigorous growth, much flexible branching with a long inter-nodal length and first-class resistance to the wet, heat, mould and strong winds.
Traditional sativas such as this have quite long flowering times, indoors and out, but this is offset both by the quality and quantity of the finished product. Being a sub-tropical strain it does need warm temperatures and high levels of light. Outdoors cultivation is possible up to about 40° of latitude, sub-tropical and Mediterranean climates being the ideal.
Although it is not the highest producer of THC, at between 8% - 12%, it will nevertheless be extremely well-received by lovers of cannabis sativa as it induces a superb high which is active, alert, social, energetic, lethargy-free, high in positivity and which is also devoid of paranoia-inducing effects. Its aroma and flavour is typically sativa with earthy and woody notes underpinned by floral and musk hints and a suggestion of fermented citrus.
Indoors growers are recommended to switch to flowering very early, at around 14 days from seed or 7 days from cuttings. This will help to ameliorate the plant's tendency to stretch by reducing height. Ace Seeds warns growers to avoid high nitrogen (N) levels throughout the plant's life cycle; likewise with pottasium (K) and phosphorous (P) until the 3rd. week of flowering. Ethiopian will be ready to harvest after 13 - 14 weeks of flowering indoors and during the third week of November outdoors in the northern hemisphere. This is a strain that will definitely put a smile on your face!

About Ace Seeds
Based in Spain, Ace Seeds are dedicated to conservation. By cultivating unique and pure genetics, Ace attempt to counter the depression that some strains suffer.
Ace Seeds list elimination of natural habitats, war, disappearing ancestral cultures, genetic contamination, globalisation and laws prohibiting research as factors for the disappearance of pure strains. By using their extensive global ‘library’ of Sativa strains, Ace Seeds aims to preserve the highest quality of genetics possible.
Ace Seeds was born as a group of breeders and cannabis lovers dedicated to the preservation and study of landrace strains from all around the world. They started to distribute seeds as an established seed company in 2004-2005.
Ace Seeds are keen to improve the lack of genetic diversity and stop the depression that cannabis strains have been suffering for decades, by offering different and innovative genetics based on landrace preservation projects and on the development of new hybrids coming from these preservation studies with landraces.
Ace Seeds are specialized in sativa strains. In the past decade, they have offered sativa genetics from Brazil, Colombia, Panama, Guatemala, Mexico, Angola, Malawi, Senegal, Congo, Lesotho, Reunion Island, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, just to name a few. They have also worked with landrace indicas from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia and China.
The classic strains at Ace Seeds have been bred from the base: the landraces. First, they start preservation projects with original and high quality landraces, reproducing all the landrace strains them for the future. Then, they study and refine these unique landrace types, improving their best traits through selections of the best parental plants. Finally, they combine the best traits from different landraces into more vigorous, powerful and adaptable hybrids. Most of these hybrids are also stabilized using wide and healthy populations over several generations.
