  1. I didn't do any surfing although I did go to a few places after the nature trek tour to do some rock climbing! Some of the best sunshine climbing i've ever done although some of the best routes were way above my grade! I ended up doing about 25 routes over a few weeks. This isn't my movie but I did climb on these crags I had a look for the place you mentioned and found this clip; I see what you mean!!
  2. You maybe right about the East, Lamsbread, although all the best plants I saw were, in fact, in the West of the Island! The West is in a rain shadow but sees an annual monsoon that usually lasts from mid November until mid March. It's the tropics man The areas I saw it in reminded me of wet wadi habitat or flood plains in the middle east a bit.. or even some of those countries with 'stan at the end of their names! The most exciting part, for me, of The Strain Hunters potentially visiting the country is that we know the islanders have lived in almost complete isolation from each other for hundreds of years. Trading goods just didn't/doesn't happen as most villages are engaged in subsistence living. I can only assume, however, that this incudes cannabis. The Strain Hunters would definitley be taking a leap of faith by visiting Madagascar but who knows what they might find if they do go
  3. Those Darwin islands.. The Galapagos maybe? I did try some while I was out there, purely out of cultural politness you understand, and it was very 'trippy'. The areas I visited on the nature trek were staggeringly beautiful, however, the island has suffered heartbreaking environmental damage to all of it's major biomes due to the Malagasy addiction to lighting wildfires
  4. I think you could be right! Mad Weed
  5. It's worth pointing out that Madagascars human history began only 2000 years ago when the first of us settled there and as you'll see from the quote below marijuana is first recorded in the pollen profile from the same time. They brought it with them! Guess where they came from? Borneo! The Arrival of Humans People first came to Madagascar in boats about 2000 years ago. The oldest human-modified bones of extinct species appear in the fossil record at this time. Charcoal “signals,” found in lake sediments, increased dramatically during this period -- indicating an increase in fires. Pollen profiles, read from lake sediment cores, reveal the arrival of introduced plants, including marijuana. Archaeologists believe that Madagascar may have been an important stopping point along a trade route that ran from southeast Asia to east Africa.
  6. Madagascar A sparsley populated country with many isloated comunities. Only in the last few years with the coming of mobiles have they begun to trade between local but isolated communities. The island has sativa and the Tamils brought indica with them. I was only on a wildlife tour for 4 weeks but I saw plenty growing including some that were years old and others which were just plain weird looking to an Englishman abroad Nearly everything else on the island is unique, the weed too? Go on.. I dare you!

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.
