here's some 'escaped' plants growing in a field in the valley where this strain comes from --- they had just started making charas from the plants in the village, but the real harvest wasn't due for a week or two

a couple more shots of plots in the same valley - in the pic on the left you can see small plots of charas plants around the houses, and on the right is obviously a plot too

it is a great place - and the charas has a wonderful warming uplifting quality that is totally inseparable from the place...

there's lots of pics of Kumaoni plants in this thread - 'Pahari Farmhouse' was the name first used for a Kumaoni strain from a valley in the same basic area of Kumaon

Kumaoni Charas plant

http://www.uk420.com/boards/index.php?showtopic=139363&st=0

some pics of charas, plants, mountains etc. in there

the plants look broadly very similar in both valley's varieties --- but the terpenoids they produce seem to be very different - the Paharis were usually more mango-ish, the Kumaonis are more citrus

just to add - when I said the broadness of the leaflets was not unusual - what I meant was not unusual at this early veg stage

these are what they look like in full flower

pics taken by my friend with a broken camera phone while really stoned

here's an original pic not in the Pahari Farmhouse thread of some babas in Kumaon - wandering sadhus visiting the pilgrimage centres in the region --- mostly sacred to Shiva, but many to the Mother Goddess - as Durga, Kali etc. as well

unusually the guru at the ashram where these babas were was a woman

the sadhu on the left was mixing some charas for a chillum

the photo on the right is of some Kumaoni plants in full flower

Interesting, I was reading an article on cannabinoids that described Limonene (A citrus smelling terpene) as having a sunny bright effect to the high, sounds like the kumaoni.

yes - the Kumaoni charas had a very sunny bright effect, very glowing... people I road tested it on all said the same thing without prompting

limonene does loads of great things - the Russo paper that is pinned in this forum talks about how it has been shown to kill breast cancer cells, as has CBD

terpenoid and cannabinoid synergy
