La Katana is an indica/sativa hybrid strain that resulted from a cross of Critical PLus with Elite Seeds' own Llimonet Haze. It produces high levels of THC and its buds have to be seen to be believed - as thick as a 2 litre bottle of pop, as hard as rock and as long as your arm!
It is a medium to large plant that grows well indoors and outdoors. Indoor flowering times are approximately 8 weeks and growers have been shocked at just how big the colas are on these plants, some even sending photos to Elite Seeds enquiring whether this was at all normal!
The aroma and taste is very strongly of Haze and lemon. THC levels have been measured at an impressive 18.5% with medium levels (1 - 5%) of CBD. The effect is euphoric, uplifting, potent, energetic and long-lasting and not suitable for those seeking a more calm and relaxing effect.

About Elite Seeds
Elite Seeds was founded in 2007 by a team of Spanish university graduates qualified in such subjects as plant genetics and breeding, agricultural science and biotechnology. With its own laboratory in the University of Valencia Science Park Elite Seeds is ideally positioned to pursue its particular interest to breed strains of cannabis that emphasise certain cannabinoids such as THC, CBD, THCV and CBDV which all have specific medicinal properties.
The scientific methods employed are underpinned by the founders' long-held dedication to cannabis especially with respect to cultivation, having opened Valencia's very first grow-shop, Kanopia, in 1999. The knowledge and understanding of its founders has resulted in the ability to create strains with specific cannabinoid profiles, some with high-THC for a potent psycho-active effect, high-CBD low-THC strains with no such effect or those with a balance of each to deliver a more calm and lucid effect.
High-THC strains include La Rica THC, Llimonet Haze THC, Mota Khan Afghani and Banana Joint. CBD-rich strains include Llimonet Classical CBD, La Rica CBD Auto, Llimonet Haze CBD Auto and Amnesia Ultra CBD.
Furthermore Elite Seeds is the first seed bank to develop strains with pretty much only CBD (Solodiol photoperiod and autos), a strain with high THCV and THC only (Novarine), one with only CBDV and CBD (Sedativa) and finally a strain with near equal ratios of THCV, THC, CBDV and CBD (Quatrovarin). With these exciting developments its medical marijuana programme is second to none.
All Elite Seeds come packed in attractive, collectable key-chain tins with various designs which are perfect for transporting and for storage as well as making excellent stash tins.
