Cambodian Purple Haze-MMSS – Cannabis to Kiss the Sky
By L.X. Luthor
Searching for old world connoisseur genetics? Your call has been answered.? This is truly a cannabis heritage worthy of respect – nearly folklore to newer tokers, and the stuff legends are made of for veteran marijuana aficionados. Some of the very best smoke to have ever made it to North America, Europe and Australia before domestic cultivation became widespread originated from Columbia and Cambodia.
Even back then, using less than modern cultivation techniques in their respective countries of origin, smokers were wowed and sometimes even overpowered by the exotic effects that these landrace strains produced.
Unfortunately, many of these original gene pools were lost to more commercial growing enterprises that became widespread as imported cannabis from these legendary regions became highly sought after. Over time, these exotic sources became diluted and eventually replaced, although not forgotten.
Today, high quality medicinal cannabis is widely available. However, what has not been widely available are some of the more exotic cannabinoids found in old world equatorial strains – flavors, aromas and effects that have not been felt outside of a few very select circles for decades….until now.
Through the MMSS network of seed breeders, medicinal growers and connoisseur smokers, what was once thought of as lost forever has been made available again. Call it fate or luck; either way, a source of undiluted genetics from each of these regions surfaced and have been combined to bring back a bold frontier in medicinal and recreational cannabis.
The female in this cross is a well-preserved inbred line of Cambodian that is reported to have some Vietnamese influence for increased yields is a rare find for connoisseur landrace genetics that rarely surface outside of very select circles.
If that wasn’t rare enough already, a well-preserved stash of Columbian Purple Haze, thought by some to be near extinct, was the pollen donor in producing this very rare and very potent cross of landrace strains that bridges continents.
Sometimes growers are told to shy away from Sativas for their longer flowering times. However, there is a pleasant trade-off for indoor growers, and that’s because these varieties will require very little time in vegetative growth to finish at large and high yielding statures at maturity. Overall, the cropping times when grown indoors can be similar to achieve similar yield levels versus Indica or Kush dominant varieties.
The aromas, flavors and potency are sublime when allowed the full time for complete maturation, which is modest for a Sativa at an average of 11 weeks.
This one is easy to grow. Provide strong light, lots of room for roots and light amounts of fertilizers, and she will perform wonders in any grow room or greenhouse.
