Pure Thai, a landrace sativa, is still a favorite among cannabis connoisseurs.
It’s rumored that back in the 1960s, Thai bud was twisted around a stick -- but reports vary as to how the buds were attached. Some say it was with hemp rope; others say with pot leaves and stems; while still others say it was stuck on with opium! The latter would certainly explain why so many old heads have long craved the Thai Stick since her disappearance in the 1980s. From Expericence It was twisted on a stick with hemp string.
This is a potent smoke, and even although it’s Sativa, the hit can be very heavy. If it doesn’t reduce you to couchlock, you’ll notice euphoria and visual effects. In short, you’ll be as high as a kite. The weed has a strong herbal flavor and smell, with suggestions of blossom and exotic spices. Medically, it’s recommended for insomnia, stress and muscular pain.
The plant grows tall, higher than three metres sometimes, and it has thin branches and slender leaves that are a vibrant green. The buds are long, as long as 30 centimetres, and they have a fluffy rather than a dense structure. THC content does vary, but it can be as high as 22 percent.
This plant is a high yielder with highly resinous and thick heavy buds. Both an extremely strong stoned and clear up high! Suitable for indoors, outdoors or the greenhouse.
If you’re going to grow Thai seeds indoors, you’ll need to prune the plant carefully to keep it at a manageable size. Because it’s a tall grower, it can be cultivated using the SCROG method. Flowering time is 10 to 12 weeks and yields are average, possibly as high as 400 grams per square metre.

Skunk and Thai Genetics
By preference, you’ll grow Thai weed outdoors, where you can allow it to reach its natural height. You’ll need to choose a sunny, sheltered spot and plant seedlings in a rich compost to get the best out of the plants. If you can grow them somewhere that has a Mediterranean climate, that’s ideal.
