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!
Landed in Fes yesterday to start something I've been meaning to do for a long time: I'm looking for the best Moroccan hash I can find. Gold is apparently what I'm after (zero-zero / Sputnik / King Hassan / cream). It started 2 weeks ago - I was staring out to sea in Spain, dreaming about what delights lay over the water - probably in much the same way so many Moroccans do from the other shore, but with vastly differing goals. They want Europe and the perceived wealth that comes with it. I wanted hash. I had a flight back to the uk, and the next 2 weeks played out much the same as the last 2 years. Mates, playstation, weed, birds etc... I was gonna get a grow on again, but had an itch I still needed to scratch. So I booked a flight, back to Spain again. Realising that wasn't really what this was about, I changed my flight last minute to Morocco, and so here I am. I thought I might find some interesting things here (never been) so figured i'd start a thread here in the travel section. If anyone popping in has any advice on just about anything, I'm all ears. Some pics: Fez medina: Camel Burger: (not traditional Moroccan food, but I couldn't resist) Cats: Gate: And some psychosis BHO which seems to have fallen into my hand luggage again probably at least 10g this time: It's not as dark as in the pics. But why take cannabis INTO Morocco? well I intend on getting chatty with some farmers to see if they want any help this season, and they prob won't have seen much of this kinda thing, so would hopefully appreciate it like I do. Should be a talking point at least. There's plenty of hash in Fes, but I haven't found what I'm looking for so haven't made a purchase yet, I'm on a bus to Chefchaouen tomorrow where I'm sure I'll find some lovely treats. I'll post up pics of whatever I find, ganja fields, hash, food, culture etc... Hopefully its of some interest. Either way I'll enjoy looking back on it later myself - and I don't do Facebook As it's all on my phone, pics are basic and I can't post them full size, but if a mod stumbles across this thread and has time they'd prob look better not as thumbnails? Cheers

According to the first elements of the investigation, the banned substance, which was carefully concealed in a shipment of agricultural products, was discovered upon inspection of the cargo vehicle that was about to embark to Europe, the same source pointed out, adding that the driver and his companion were arrested. The suspects, aged 30 and 39, were placed in custody pending the completion of the investigation. https://www.moroccoworldnews.com/2016/02/180797/over-18-tons-of-hashish-seized-northern-morocco/
