A fairly long flowering strain, like many from Africa. Though it is well worth the wait as it induces a superb, electric high that is slightly unnerving the first time you try it. It has a leafy/earthy, hash smell and a strong woody/spice taste overall but this is uniquely adaptable based on its surroundings.
It is said that the plant has been known to take characteristics from its surrounding habitat and present these in its terpenes. When found among lemon trees can take on lemony characteristics and the same has been said of the plant growing close to mango trees.
In the High mountainous Kingdom of Lesotho Cannabis Sativa has been grown for generations. It is locally know as " Matekoane" and has a large export market. As with many countries early history is mixed with myth and Ledgend but it is well know that new African settlers in the Lesotho made business deals with the local San tribe and it is said that land was swapped for Cannabis as far back as 1550.
Harvested in the outskirts of forested areas not too far from the coast, these plants grow in a tropical climate with two seasons, a wet season from October till March, when cyclones are common, and a dry season from April till September.

This strain is collected from the South African border on foothills around the fast flowing rivers near Victoria falls. The falls are traditionally described as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” which translated means “The smoke that thunders”. It may be possible that this name was also inspired by these extremely powerful plants that grew nearby.

The plant thrives on foothills, near winding rivers and is nurtured by the dappled light that gleams through the canopy of surrounding forest.
