About African

“As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti, I seek to cure what’s deep inside… I bless the rains down in Africa.” And honestly, why wouldn’t you? Offering some of the best 100% pure sativas the world has to offer, this landrace series native to the motherland is energizing, uplifting, and tasty.

Depending on where in the continent the strain is grown, African buds can vary from pepper shaped and piecey to short, dense nugs with lots of leafy greens. Typically they are neon green with bright orange hairs and offer a crystal coating of amber trichomes and light, sweet resin. The THC levels of African bud fall pretty consistently around 10% regardless of its home state and is brightly flavored with heavy spice and herbal notes and a sweet sugary base.

Best described as energetic and joyful, this high is a great way to start the day. You’ll have an immediate pep in your step from this heady boost and feel your spirits soar as the high progresses. This incredibly motivating bud will have you firing on all cylinders, chatting up a storm, and pulling out all the creative stops. You’ll get a little hungry from time to time, so keep some of your favorite snacks handy.

Because of the powerful euphoria associated with this strain, it is often prescribed for users that suffer from depression and chronic stress disorder. It is also a stimulant making it great for people who suffer from anorexia or a general lack of appetite. African is a great strain for new or novice smokers as it is a mellow smoke with uplifting effects that exclude the scattered thoughts of some sativas.

This plant is indigenous to African climates and therefore is best suited for hot weather or temperature controlled systems. It is recommended for advanced growers and is expected to have an above average yield with exact amounts depending on where your seeds originate from. In all honesty, it just might be the kind of strain you opt to purchase instead of growing yourself, although if you’re up for a bit of a challenge more power to you!

As with most sativas, this landrace strain is an energetic, on-the-go high that kicks social anxiety right out the window. Get creative with this bud and start a new project. Not the creative type? Race through a to-do list or go for a hike. Enjoy African in the great outdoors and let it live up to its full potential.
