This particular malawi Gold is a pure sativa African landarace strain that was formerly made available by Afropips Seeds. Since its demise this strain has been saved by collectors, one of whom provided the seed material with which The Real Seed Company has maintained this line for growers and collectors.
This strain hails from the Nkhotakota region, home of the very best ganja in Malawi, and was selected by Afropips following 10 years of research together with some of Malawi's top growers. Its natural home is at 13°S where it grows into a tall plant, between 200 - 400 cm, with a very long flowering period as is quite typical with equatorial sativas. The traditional way of curing and storing ganja here is to wrap the unseeded (or lightly seeded) flowers in corn (maize) husks which are then bound.
The scents and flavours of malawi Gold are floral in nature with notes of herb, spice with a bit of a tang. The effect is expansive, alert with great clarity and very long-lasting. Warmth radiates through the body and provides a nice feeling of well-being and contentment. The uplifting quality that it possesses is due to the high amounts of THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) which occurs in equatorial ganja strains.
