So I've been asking around in different forums and looking for a specific cultivar/strain 😉 from the 90's, the elusive Mexican Red Hair!

I was lead to a place where I found many people preserving old landraces like Oaxaca, Persherwar and Lambsbread!

I believe the one, after talking to many people, is Oaxaca and I've been able to get my hands on all 3 of these strains!

What's your guys thoughts on these older landraces? Also, these are big plants, low THC, so right in my wheel house for THC as I don't like the stuff that hits so hard, I loose hours hahaha..

@firetop95 yeah man, I think that is what a lot of people think now, however, we've gotten some amazing crosses over time 😀 

I do think that these people doing the preservation are awesome people!

@johncarlson21 If you are into this kind of genetics you should try the landrace genetics from my country

1. Kalamata Red : middle eastern sativa , close to Lebanese plants 

2. Cretan : Sativa dominant, lebaneze infused with central Asia indicas brought by immigrants to the island in the 1920's

3. Arcadian : Hybrid high, hash plant

4. Moliotiko : Hybrid closer to lebaneze, hash plant

Up to 1935 cannabis cultivation was legal here, there were factories that processed flower to hash and exported throughout the Mediterranean area 

All these genetics where preserved by an individual registered in Fylos and are available by "The Landrace team" and "The Real Seed Bank"
