Muang Xai is an Oudomxay Highlands landrace sourced from around the village of Pak Beng in the Upper Lao Mekong Highlands. It was an important transit point between Luang Prabang and Chiang Saen in ancient times and today it remains so, featuring a bustling local market where one can try Cannabis grown in the neighbouring regions but ultimately destined for export to Luang Prabang or Chiang Khong. Most of this Cannabis has been subject to foreign influences - however, our grower is from the indigenous Khmu ethnicity and maintains that his garden plot has remained intact for as far back as the collective memory goes. This ganja is not destined for sale but instead, one or two plants are kept at home for medicinal purposes, growing on average once every two to three years as needed. 


The Muang Xai is a gorgeous example of a Golden Triangle landrace. Perfectly adapted to a heavily forested highland environment, about 20% of phenos show a very, very elevated THC level and a decidedly Limonene forward terpene profile. The rest fall along a more typical medium THC, Pinene heavy expression. 


Recommended for advanced Sativa growers.
