Due to popular demand we have very limited stock of these rare heirloom seeds - especially (but not exclusively) for customers in North America. This strain is available in our shop courtesy of Ace Seeds, the official reseller for the Indian Landrace Exchange. We would like to thank Ace Seeds for their kind collaboration.
Orders are sent super-stealth (with the original label) and track #.
The seeds cannot be replaced/reshipped if the parcel is lost. We can instead offer a refund minus our costs. By placing an order you agree to our Terms of Service.
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.
Purple Dasht seeds have been collected from the desert region of Dasht, which is a series of mountains, skirts and secluded valleys at the outskirts of Quetta. This particular region is extremely dry and features a desert climate with almost no rains through the warmer months of the year, and almost all precipitation comes down in the form of snow during the winters. The temperature remains cool almost throughout the year at the mountains, with snowfall taking place from early November to early December.
Balochistan in itself is located 30º N of the equator without extreme altitudes (not surpassing 4000 meters), so the season length actually allows for the regional landraces to exhibit features that are familiar to naturally adapted populations in latitudes between 24º-32º N. These populations usually express features that are characteristically marked by medium-long flowering term of 11-13 weeks, which includes a pre-flowering stretch of 3-4 weeks before the plants actually go into rapid floral production. Eventually plants would grow 3-4x in size by the time they are harvested. However, the farmers notoriously import fully domesticated cannabis varieties from higher latitude regions such as Afghanistan and Uzbekistan to amalgamate with their regional landrace strain (as described above) to achieve shorter flowering, compact plants that boast an overall higher concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes, which invariably translates in producing a more flavorful and potent hash.
Selection and maintenance of the crop in traditional cannabis hot spots is done in a crude manner and hence a tremendous amount of diversity can be seen in plant and flower structure. But aroma, psychoactive effect, plant colours and the flowering duration do remain consistent to a fair extent. Indian Landrace Exchange chose to work with one of the very skilled farmers from this region who is known for his beautiful purple/red plants and for producing hash of acute effects. With his much needed help, Indian Landrace Exchange made some beautiful purple selections from his garden keeping in mind to still cover full genetic diversity of his farm, so as a result a lot of different types of purple plants for this Purple Dasht seed stock.
In a 10 seed selection there will be plants that would structurally resemble very closely tall, narrow leaf varieties. And then there will be plants expressing a short compact frame reminiscent of the fully domesticated varieties from higher latitude regions, which have been embedded into their local gene pool by gradual introduction and amalgamation. An appreciable amount of plants express lucid colours on leaves and floral bracts alike. Colourful undersides of the leaves are one of the typical features of this strain. The aroma leans towards diesel with pine, eastern spices, and occasional faint floral hints. The smell is also quite intense indicating a high concentration of terpenes.
Purple Dasht imparts a very clear and focused, cerebral, and energetic high. It builds up gradually in the first 15 minutes and then stabilizes for up to 1-2 hours, depending upon the dosage used. The effects are social and enjoyable, without causing negative side-effects such as heart palpitations or paranoia.
