  1. Hello, I have been passionate about the history of our beloved plant for over 13 years and more specifically about landrace strains. Unfortunately, it seems that just like regional accents and dialects, landrace strains are also dying out and disappearing quickly. It can be attributed to globalization, eradication campaigns, demand for an end product higher in cannabinoids and the list goes on... I would like to go to the Moroccan Rif during the summer, to find some real moroccan landrace seeds and bring them back in an effort to preserve the very old and unique genetics of that region. However, from what I have heard and researched, it appears that the Kif landrace, also called Bledia, has already almost disappeared from the Rif. Apparently, farmer brought seeds from Pakistan and Afghanistan in the 90's which "polluted" most of the pure Morrocan Sativa genes. Then, since 2002-2003, moroccan farmers have started hybridising their strains with genetic material from Holland to bring up THC levels and resin production. The genuine Moroccan landrace is supposed to be Sativa and automatic as they used to be harvested in July in the Rif. My Question to all you old-timers and landrace enthusiasts out there: Is it too late to find some seeds of that Old-school Moroccan Kif or is it still being cultivated is some remote areas? I really want to preserve that cultural heritage (I'm part Moroccan) and preserve the genetics by open-pollinating. I also believe that, as it becomes more and more legal throughout the world, people will want to use it as a medicine but some unique medical properties can only be found is some specific strains. I think the real genetic diversity lies in landrace strains. However, if we don't fight to preserve the genes, it will be lost forever. Before it even becomes legal worldwide once again. Your input would be very appreciated!

  4. Hello everybody, i am not sure whether this is the right place to post this. Moderators, if you think it isn't, please move it where you think it's more appropriate. So, i'll try to be as brief as i can and get straight to the point. Am a seed collector. Have a friend in Israel, who doesn't smoke so can't help me as his friends also don't smoke. I, sooner or later, will go and visit him and would like to take the opportunity of doing both things. Visiting my friend and looking for ISRAELI LANDRACES SEEDS. Never been to Israel and don't even know whether a landrace from israel exists. Does any one know if such a strain exists? and if so where it is grown or which place in israel it originates from? Do you know of nay particular name (for the landrace in question) and village/area i could go to / look into? If you have any pic of such a native plant don't hesitate to attach it here. If you know of a farmer who produces plants and seeds, i'd be grateful for any info. I can also go directly to the farmer/producer/merchant and buy the seeds. Thanks to anyone who can help me with my quest Dan

  6. Was wondering if anyone knows where I can get Original Moroccan LandRace seeds. The strain that comes from Ketama region. I've googled and done a lot of searching and only come up with 'World of Seeds Ketama Landrace' but have heard many negative reports of this company. I don't have any first hand experience of this company so maybe they are in fact o'k. I am quite aware of fact that there are now a lot of Pakistani strains in Morocco but really I am looking for the original strain. Any advice really appreciated. Thanks.
