Jamaica is well known for its excellent relationship with marijuana or, as it is locally called, the ganja. The Rastafari movement and singers like Bob Marley have placed Jamaican weed on the spot but it was not always this way. During the years as a British colony the Jamaican fields were full of sugar and cotton and, to work them, tens of thousands of workers came from India. Luckily they brought the first marijuana Indian seeds grown in Jamaica, and this was a game changer moment.
Over the years these plants adapted to Jamaican climate and became strains with very long flowering, highly cerebral sativa effect and intense citrus flavor. Later with the globalization and the arrival of feminized seeds to Jamaica, sadly many of its landrace have been practically lost. One of the most mythical Jamaican landraces is the Lambs Bread which is already very hard to find and those that you can find, have strong influences of Skunk genetics.
The popularization of Jamaican genetics came in the late 70s with the Rastafari movement and the success achieved by some Jamaican Reggae singers, such as Bob Marley. They brought to worldwide fame the marijuana they consumed. From that moment the respect and the search for the Jamaican genetics reached its highest point, spreading it all over the world.
In Experiencia Natural we always try to offer the best genetics in each marijuana strain, this way we recommend the following Jamaican strains:
We always look for the purest genetics, with Jamaican strains is complicated but the Eva Seeds Jamaican Dream is a cross with a Jamaican landrace collected by the people of Eva Seeds that offers its powerful sativa effect and a fairly short flowering.
Another strain we can offer to you is Laughing Buddha from Barney's Farm, a Jamaican genetics with strong sativa effect, very cerebral and long flowering. A pleasure for the senses.
From Sensi Seeds we offer the Jamaican Pearl, available in feminized and regular version, which is the result of the crossing of the now disappeared Marley's Collie (Jamaican genetics), a very tasty hybrid, fruity and adapted to the coldest climates.
