It is basically a very old local heirloom or a wild growing variety in the area that has adapted to the local climate and conditions. There is some ambiguity to the term as there are no clear cut definitions of what animal or plant is a true landrace

Jankahar, you defined it so much simpler and finer than I did.  

 

Thanks

 

LOL

 

You could work for Merriam-Webster.

That's right, it's well defined :)

It is a local, autochthonous variety that has adapted to the climate and the environment for many years. For the most foodies, we love to taste autochthonous varieties (landraces)


Regards!

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
