Balochistan Black Tiger is a special selection of a high yielding 'black' phenotype with a super size leaf canopy. The seeds were collected at origin November 2022.
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.
Balochistan Black Tiger 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 tolerates low temperatures during flowering and strong temperature variations throughout its development. This Indica landrace can easily be grown indoors too.
In the ground the vigorous plants grow tall, round, bushy, with very wide leaves. They can reach up to 10-12 feet with numerous strong and productive secondary branches.
The high of Black Tiger marijuana has a strong sedative effect and can be used for effective medicinal extracts.
Germination tip: ILE recommends planting directly in soil. A heating mat is beneficial during cooler months. The average germination time is 5-12 days. Do NOT throw away your soil if the seedlings don't appear after a few days!
