Maroc traces its origins back to the Ketama region of Morocco. It has since been selectively bred to arrive at this resinous version which is adapted to outdoor cultivation at higher latitudes. It is an indica/sativa strain.
Maroc is a great plant to grow outdoors. It should be sown outside in mid-April through to mid-May. It is not at all recommended to start the plants early indoors to give them a head start as they will start to flower in May as they are semi-autos. They really benefit from longer summer days for their period of vegetative growth. In low latitudes they will be ready to harvest in the second half of August but the further north or south they are cultivated the longer the growing season that they require and so harvest will be much later, e.g. mid-October at 52°N. With good vegetative growth they reach a height of 100 - 150 cm. tall and are big-yielding plants.
The buds grow long and quite slim and with a fairly open structure so a little dampness won't ruin them as this encourages air-flow through the buds. The aroma is incredibly rich and aromatic with a sweet, earthy, floral taste - definite reminders of pure Ketama gold! The effect is very nice, a pleasant body-stone that has a broader impact than typical good-quality Moroccan hash due to the wider range of cannabinoids present.

About Female Seeds
Ferry, the creator and head cultivator at Female Seeds started making regular seeds during his studies in the early 90’s, purely as a source of extra income. However, the high demand for new strains from Amsterdam combined with the excellence of the products that Ferry was producing, his business truly exploded and became a major player in the regular cannabis seed business by the end of the 1990’s.
Speaking of this unexpected expansion, Ferry said, “I never thought an extra student income would lead to such a serious business. Ultimately my dream was to save money for a small self-sufficient eco farm.”
At the end of the 21st century, the first feminised seeds were introduced to the market. They were very popular, but also very unreliable. Ferry’s experience in massive regular seed production combined with his engineering background motivated him to investigate how to produce 100% reliable female seeds.
Because of this, Ferry switched his focus from regular to feminised seeds, and by 2003, he introduced Female Seeds to the market. It became a huge success immediately because of his decision to price his seeds below market average while still maintaining the quality of his products. In fact, Female Seeds became so popular in such a short space of time, the company had difficulties to meet the demand.
Around this time, many new feminised seedbanks started to enter the market. However, a good reputation, reliable and unique products, value for money and friendly customer service helped Female Seeds to differentiate ourselves from the mass.
Ferry spoke about the current success of his company saying, “Female Seeds has now entered a state of transition, from a company to a movement to invest in sustainable independent growing systems, like aquaponics and LED systems. Furthermore all profits will be invested into cooperative systems, ecological projects and agriculture. Helping people to have a happy sustainable lifestyle is our overriding goal."
