'Thai Mango', under the name 'Thai-Stick' was Cannabis grown in the Thai-Lao Region of Isan, better understood as the area historically encompassed by the ancient kingdom of Lan Xang known as "the Kingdom of 1,000,000 White Elephants and Parasols". This area was once populated by indigenous Austroasiatic-speaking tribes, such as Khmuic peoples and Vietic peoples which gave rise to the Bronze Age cultures in Ban Chiang (today part of Thai Isan) and the Đông Sơn culture as well as Iron Age peoples near Xiangkhoang Plateau on the Plain of Jars, Funan, and Chenla (near Vat Phou in Champasak Province). The Han dynasty's chronicles of the southward expansion of the Han dynasty provide the first written accounts of Tai–Kadai speaking peoples or ‘Ai Lao’ who inhabited the areas of modern Yunnan and Guangxi, China. The Tai peoples migrated south in a series of waves beginning in the 7th century and accelerated following the Mongol conquest of Yunnan (1253–1256) into the northern reaches of what would become the kingdom of Lan Xang. The kingdom was split into three new kingdoms in 1713 and later, the region we are concerned with was further split between the modern countries of Thailand and Laos. 

 

 

All over this greater region, Cannabis is cultivated at home and on a large scale. Beyond this region even, in Myanmar, Cambodia and India - accessions with strong myrcene dominant terpene profiles have been called 'Mango' with the prefix of whatever region or country in which it is grown. It is no surprise then, that everyone lays claim to the "true" mango. From Mysore to Chiang Mai. 

 

 

Due to prohibition, a lack of evidence and an abundance of ethnic, regional and national pride the origins of Thai-Stick and the Cannabis varieties associated are disputed. It is said that during the reign of King Rama V (20 September 1853 – 23 October 1910) - various cultivars from Isan were dispersed throughout Thailand by the King himself and the various Bangkok Universities and Hospitals of the time. This is then used as an explanation as to the proliferance of NLD type Cannabis in Thailand. This is unlikely to have been the case, given the penchant for attributing all great deeds to the king and historical revisionism exhibited by the various institutions of Thai society. More likely, as in Mysore or Taungoo - myrcene rich profiles were selectively bred into the landrace genepool over generations away from whatever ancestral landrace genepool was in the region before in home gardens and small plots. 

 

 

Though Thai Mango was most famously grown in the Thai and Lao Mekong Lowlands, during the heydays of Thai-Stick, Chiang Mai province experienced a massive tourism boom which fueled a huge demand for Cannabis in the local area. Local minorities such as the Hmong, who are heavily associated with ‘Mango’ in Northern Thailand have likely grown Cannabis here since the 1960s when they were given beans from Isan by Isan peoples.

 

 

We currently have three accessions of 'Thai Mango' typically showing two dominant phenotypes: one fruity and fresh and the other darker and musky. Expect heavy Myrcene and Camphor/Menthol type aromas throughout.

 

The accessions from Highland regions that feature high diurnal temperature variation, have over time been selected for anthocyanin rich characteristics often leading to a purple/pink colour by late flower. Flowering time ranges from 14-20 weeks depending on conditions. These plants are adapted to equatorial climes and light cycles thus if flowering indoors, consider lowering the light cycle down to 10 hours on, 14 hours off gradually to stimulate 'flowering'. Expect a vigorous and lanky plant that can easily reach 15-20ft and fill out with thick arm length colas if given the space and time it needs in an outdoor environment. Light feeders, indoors they will require training and as much space as can be afforded. Indoor growers are suggested to pheno hunt, clone the selected specimen and put the clones into flower at the 2nd or 3rd set of leaves if uniformity is required.
