La Rica Classic THC was created by crossing Skunk #1 with an Afghani strain. It is a very indica-dominant strain that has an enticing perfume and an absolutely delicious, fruity taste. It is an exceptional resin producer with large trichomes and enormous, sparkling glandular heads which will be especially interesting for extract makers.
La Rica is a medium-sized plant which likes to spread out giving it a bushy profile with its many side-branches. Indoors flowering will take approximately 67 days give or take a day or two although it won the 2007 Outdoor Spannabis Cannabis Champions Cup which demonstrates its undoubted outdoor quality. Its buds are rock hard. Yields are average but the quality makes it a very worthwhile strain to cultivate.
The fruity taste hits at once and is a really more-ish combination of melon and strawberry. THC production is around the 20% mark and the effect is typically indica and relaxes both mind and body supremely well.

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.
