Alpine Cannabis Genetics

The mountain ranges of Asia have always held a special place in the hearts and minds of humanity. From the majestic Himalayas to the rugged Hindu Kush, these towering peaks have inspired awe and reverence for centuries. It is no surprise, then, that the cannabis varieties found in these alpine regions are equally extraordinary.

In Hindu traditional cosmologies, the cannabis plant is said to have divine origins, with the god Shiva famously bringing the plant down from Mt. Mandara to the plains below for the benefit of humankind. Since then, cannabis has played a central role in the spiritual and cultural practices of the communities living in these mountain ranges. For centuries, it has been used for medicinal purposes, as a natural fiber for textiles and rope, and as a key ingredient in traditional rituals and celebrations. In particular, the mountain regions of Asia are renowned for the production of charas, a type of hand-rubbed hashish made from the live trichome glands of the cannabis plant.

Our Mountain collection features a range of rare and unique landrace varieties that have evolved over time to thrive in these harsh alpine environments. These varieties represent the diverse cultures and traditions of the mountain peoples, and are a testament to the adaptability and resilience of the cannabis plant.

As you explore our Mountain collection, you'll discover a world of rare and extraordinary cannabis seeds and genetics, each with its own unique characteristics and attributes.  These landrace varieties are a testament to the rich cultural heritage and natural diversity of the mountain ranges of Asia.
