We classified the landrace varieties originating from this region as “Equatorial/Long flowering Zone” due to elevation less than 1500m and latitude less than 33 degrees.
The flowering duration on these are quite long as they can flower for close to 16-18 weeks without much yields.
The usual smell present in the plants is that of minty/floral and hashy. The effects are lesser known for smoking as much of it is used in creating edibles infused with whole plant extracts, which is known to induce a very potent high also psychedelic in nature but that is mostly due to the chemical reaction which takes place upon ingestion of activated cannabis resin.
However it still delivers a very peaceful cerebral high which can be felt around the head.
