As the thread is swinging from south america via se asia to west africa, anyone any idea of anything that might be similar to 'african bush'. Coconutty smell and very sharp sticks, late 80s/early 90s. Nothing like Durban Poison. Not much to go on i know, only looking to find siomething close. Keep looking at serious seeds serious six, anyone tried this?

They say so mate. I have heard of traveling growers looking for the old skool original's going to regions of Africa.

An old high times book I had said Africa was a lost heaven for Cannabis breeders, not sure how much truth is in it but it make sense. That type of weed was very low maintenance in terms of growing, so some empty baron waste land / jungle in Africa makes sense, plus it was still very much criminal organised back then so like I say, Africa makes sense.

Why would an 80's / 90's group in Columbia produce masses of weed worth thousands when they have the ability to produce more valuable crops. GV.

I think if you want to try a West African strain then there's a Ghanian one avaliable probably another long flowering sat.

Africa is a big place, plenty of room and different climates and cultures to have a load of different weeds, which indeed there are, but as far as I know weed comes from Asia originally so not all of Africa has longstanding Cannabis culture in the same way as a lot of Asia.

I used to get what was said to be Colombian weed back in the late 80's it wasn't African bush and it wasn't Thai.

Well west Africa is in a brilliant location as far as water bound smugglers are concerned.

Maybe the weed of that time was more African than I knew, because it tended to look like it had just come straight out of the back side of an elephant.

Would be nice to have a little now and then though, for old times. I always keep a keen ear out for some old skool red or gold seal but that's even rarer these days. GV.

I'd love to know what I was smoking when I stayed in North East America for a while back in 99. It looked like shit, if we'd bought it over here we'd have called it "Afro Bush" back in the day, stalky, compressed and seeded. But fucking hell, it knocked me sideways, and I had a good tolerance....I felt almost as if I was tripping. I'd like to try some old skool stuff, don't care how good it is when compared to "modern" offerings, just for old times sake. Good thread this, it's giving me some inspiration. :yes:

Ive always had a nagging suspicion that some imported brickweed, including some of this 'thai' or jamaican' is actually moroccan, perhaps already threshed for hash or just low grade crops. That would support the african theory.

I have a 35mm film canister full of seeds from weed I smoked when working shooting in Hati and The Dominican Republic. I got the weed from a guy who grew it out there from the seeds he had been getting from his and his neighbour's weed.

In the past I would have been pissed off with the amount of seeds in it but every one was piced out and kept :)

I'm just waiting for the right time to run them as I am assuming they are Sativa dominant.

Wizard :oldtoker:

Does any one remember the brick weed some people called it stick and seed. It was pressed together  I don't know if it was columbian or African but it was stativa and made me laugh so hard I've been chasing that high for over 30 years

More probable to be African than COlumbian. Columbian and Mexican weed goes straight to the USA.

WHy would they bother with the cost of freighting it over to Europe to pass a dozen borders when they can lob it over the Mexican border fence.

Some of the west African weed ive smoked in the past has been dynamite, looked like floor sweepings but blew my brains out.It was meant to be Malawi, but I think a lot of stuff from further south was passed off as it, and there are so many bullshitters it could have been from Peckham.

I can remember imported stuff from 91/92 looked shit(pressed into bricks) smelled quite shit too, but the high was outstanding... Like a warm cuddly acid trip

 

Riddled with seeds as well... If only I had the vision...
