Balochistan is the largest province in Pakistan and is bordered by Afghanistan, Iran, and the Khyber region. The climate is extremely harsh and uninhabitable at most places. Climate in the highlands has cold winters and warm summers. Somewhat more hospitable conditions can be found closer to the coastal areas near the Arabian Sea.
Balochistan acts as an ultimate proving ground for any plant variety and only genotypes well adapted towards surviving in scarcity of water and heat could survive in these unforgiving conditions.
Unlike other central Asian hashish regions Balochistan has a number of educated farmers who possess skills and knowledge beyond traditions. Some of the farmers select the seeds and keep them separately as they understand various features, like red stems or pink calyxes, brings certain qualitative effects into the final product and user experience.
There is a variety of different expressions in numerous farmed populations spread across, in places like Dasht and Mastung which is situated near the Pakistan-Afghan-Iranian border. This area is known as a hub for the imported Afghan hashish into Pakistan.
The farmers consider early flowering plants inferior in quality whereas more vigorous and late flowering plants (10-11 weeks) are their first choice for making one of the best hashish in the world. The flavours in Balochistan populations around the north west in places like Mastung is basically a mind bending complex of sweet and acrid smells which can be based around lemon/perfume, petrol/diesel, pine, honey, earthy and tropical to highland fruits.
This hash plant Indica is a family heirloom bred by forefathers of 'Mir Irshad', the Balochi farmer who is currently responsible for preserving and propagating these genetics, which entails from a deep rooted cannabis culture amongst traditional Balochi cannabis farmers.
Balochistan #4 is especially recommended for outdoor growing in hot and dry climates due to its excellent adaptability to heat and drought in its place of origin. It withstands without problems low temperatures during flowering and strong temperature variations throughout its development. It can easily be grown indoors too.
The seeds of this selection #4 come from a strongly branched plant 2.5-3 meters tall, with very high production of flowers and resins. Its broad leaves turn magenta to deep red with ripening. The plants develop long and heavy colas that generally don't require support. The effect is mind bending! Only suitable for experienced smokers. Not recommended if you are prone to racy heart.
