Landrace Cannabis is recognized as one of the oldest strains. Therefore, Landrace strains are ancestors of strains of Cannabis available today.
Landrace sativa strains that originated in warm, tropical jungle conditions may have distinct qualities than landrace indica strains that evolved in harsher alpine environments. Modern cannabis breeders can employ these genetic traits to heighten specific properties and develop a new hybrid.
Popular Landrace hybrids are Thai, Afghani, Acapulco Gold, Durban Poison, and Lamb’s Bread.
