About South Asian

Rather than paying homage to one breeder specifically, South Asian generally refers to the landrace strains that come from varying parts of the region. Grown by residents of South Asia and often used to create a variety of hybrids, South Asian offers traditional sativa effects with a moderate amount of THC.


If you’re able to find a pure South Asian strain, you’ll be pleased to note that at 10% THC, it can be shared with novices and experts alike. These buds tend to come in large yet light nugs that are covered with orange pistils, a generous layer of trichomes, and sticky resin. Scents of South Asian include a bouquet of spicy earth notes, citrus, and wood that create a savory experience both in your nose and on your tongue.


Those who are looking for a way to get through a long day typically turn to these pure sativa strains, as they impart a set of effects that are strong yet positive. South Asian will help to heighten your energy levels, creates a sense of socialization that often includes the giggles, and can even lead to a boost in your creativity. Some use this strain as a wake and bake option while others opt to save it as their weekend treat, but either way you go, make sure you take your hits well before bedtime!


While South Asian can be utilized for a variety of ailments, medical patients with mental disorders often choose this strain above all others. The uplifting nature of sativas, in general, provide relief from depression and stress, and even those who struggle with anxiety or PTSD notice their symptoms melting away during their high. Physical pain can also be addressed with a toke or two, as South Asian is great for treating a headache or cramps.


As you may have guessed, strains native to South Asia tend to thrive in that specific environment, but that’s not to say that you won’t have any luck at all cultivating this strain at home. South Asian requires a lot of sunlight and can do well in tropical or temperate climates. The plant is resistant to pests and in general, is fairly easy to grow, but does require a bit of patience. Home cultivators will find that this strain needs between 10 and 12 weeks to flower, but they’ll be rewarded with a nicely sized yield.


Keep your eyes out for this original strain, as plants like these tend to be found fewer and far between as breeding capabilities advance. When you want a true dose of energy without having to deal with a harsh comedown or other unknown effects, South Asian should be your go-to. If you ever get a chance to visit her homeland, give your thanks to the native people who grow this majestic strain.
