    The landrace strain is a cannabis strain that has developed over centuries in a particular natural environment. Different cannabis cultivars that have grown, inbred and adapted to very specific geographical location are pure cannabis strains.

    Over time, these strains have developed unique characteristics to better survive in their distinct climate. We can understand landrace strains to be true indigenous cannabis plants.

    While some are cultivated to make unique types of hashish or cannabis products, others grow wild in their respective countries. For example, native cannabis plants found in the Kush Mountain region are quite different than the native, wild plants found in Thailand. Plants from both of these regions will also be quite different from the genotypes abundant in northern and central Africa.

    Cannabis Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis are the three scientifically recognized species of cannabis and the categories under which all landrace strains fall. Though modern cannabis science is slowly beginning to prove that there may be more to cannabis genetics than we think, these three types are generally accepted by the cannabis community and are the names you will hear in any dispensary or seed bank.
