There are some cannabis genetics that seem to have always been there, classic names that are familiar to us. One of them is the Hash Plant, but do you know where it comes from and the reason for its fame? Soon you will discover it…
What is the Hash Plant variety like?
It is a cannabis plant with a clear indica morphology, quite dense structure, compact growth, leaves of broad leaflets and dark green color, and a great strength in general. The flowers are medium in size, but with extraordinary hardness and an above-normal amount of resin.
It was precisely the feature of high resin production that marked this variety forever. Until that moment the concept “Hashplant” was reserved to Landraces and pure cultivars of Asia, where they use the plants for the extraction of hashish.
What is the genetics of Hash Plant?
It is presumed to come from a cross between a Thai and a Lebanese male, although its exact provenance is not known exactly. It came to Europe in the form of a clone during the 1980s, like many other strains that later became mythical.
In Europe it was offered in seed form first by Super Sativa Seed Club and later by Sinsemilla Seed Company, which later became Sensi Seeds. In Sensi they crossed the clone with their Northern Lights stallion to produce the commercial HashPlant seeds we know nowadays.
Hash Plant from PEV Seeds is the feminized version that comes from the original genetics offered by Sensi Seeds that was so successful all over Europe.
