Ace Seeds' Lebanese is the result of over a decade's worth of breeding and selections from traditional Lebanese landrace sativa hash plants. This is the same strain from which the famous and delicious red and blond lebanese hashish is produced. Excellent resistance to hot and dry conditions through many generations of plants becoming acclimatised to their environment.
This is a fairly early-maturing plant that will start to flower after about 6 weeks or so and can be considered a semi-autoflowering strain. Landrace sativas traditinally originate from between the tropics where the hours of daylight and dark are roughly equal and so flowering tends to be triggered by the plants' chronological age rather than any reduction in the hours of daylight. Early vegetative growth is characterised by fairly broad leaves but as flowering begins the new leves become much more easily identifiable as sativa as they elongate and become narrower. When cultivated indoors it will take around 9 - 11 weeks of flowering until harvest time. Outdoor plants will be ready to harvest at the end of September or early October in northern latitudes. Yields can vary between average to high.
The medium-density buds join up to form contiguous "fox-tails" and are heavy with resin. Sweet, floral perfumes are generated during flowering and as the cut plants dry this becomes a sweet, fruity smell reminiscent of mangoes. When smoked the main aroma is of blond hash with sweet, sour and woody notes. The effect is very pleasantly relaxing, smooth and easy-going, this due to the high CBD between 6 - 16% with relatively low THC of 0.5 - 8%. The high levels of CBD make this a strain with immense medicinal potential.

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.
