Shilavati (Landrace - South Indian Indica) *Need Info*

13 posts in this topic

Hey,

I know I am new here, but I have been searching for information on this strain for a while.. seeing how Strainhunters has been to India, I figured there may be some insight.

Here is the information I have:

Name: Shilavati
Genetics: Indica (South Indian)
Origin: Near Hyderabad - Eastern Himalayan Region
Height: Up to 1.8 Meters

Other than that, very little information actually exists. Shilavati is known as "The most potent naturally occuring cannabis strain". The buds are extremely dense and seem to be larger than strains such as Big Bud. From what the grower has told me, the buds on this plant can grow to sizes larger than your palm.

I am looking for any information other than what I have!

Sincerely,

Shepj

I will eventually be able to provide more information. I have done a little strainhunting myself and came across these genetics straight from South India, what I know is limited, but will hopefully expand soon!

Himalayas is in North India. I heard that good South Indian strains come from Kerela, in the Western Ghats.

i know this. This is shitty Indian stuff. Tried it. it comes with seeds and all the dirt. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR NON-INDIAN smokers. Because we get dirt mixed and stuff having seeds ONLY in India.

I smoke this stuff daily.I know this stuff in and out.I just get the pot from my home town for cheap.I also started growing two plants from the left over seeds..The pot is incredibly potent and makes you lazy as hell and hungry as fuck.I wouldn't recommend this to beginners. You must be a seasoned stoner like myself to smoke this pot daily. It gives you a lot of throat pain, if you smoke it in a bong and joints are the best for this pot.I have become so used to this stuff that , I only get reasonably high after taking 10-12 bong hits. And also because of the harshness of the weed , I don't get high smoking any other ordinary stuff like hydrabadi dhoolpet mail, and north indian sativa.

Oh my... This topic has been created in 2011!... How can time flies by so fast?

 

Moving away 

"Already excited about going to Idduki and put your hands on it? There is a bad news. You might never get it, here is why - it is not around any more. With the population growing and forest cover soon depleting along with law enforcement becoming stricter the cultivation gradually came down in Idukki. Now most of the plantation takes place along the Andhra-Odisha border a hotbed of naxalism. Even though there are huge plantations there is a difference on what is planted- it is not Idukki gold, but 'Sheelavathi' a local variant as it is more adapted to the region's climate. Initially they tried to plant the original seeds but, the yield was of inferior quality forcing them to look for other viable options."

Hello Ungewiss, in response to your PM, i don't know if i've found specifically the "Shilavati" ... As there is no name on buds. BUT, i've found some nice flowers to smoke in Kerala, Karnataka,Varanasi (coming from Bihar apparently) and Parvati (where there is more Hash than weed (90%)). I've never seen fields out there, just few plants for personal use.

In the first time, i'll advise you to go asking to people who already smoke, in order to know if they've got good quality, good price, to know to whom they've been buying from. Until you don't know locals, play it safe! In Odisha, you should find some nice Green...

 

Good travel.

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.
