Just got back from a few weeks in Northern India on a seed hunting expedition. We flew from Amsterdam to Delhi and then caught a connecting flight into the mountains to begin our search. Here are a few pictures of from the trip. India is an amazing place and the people are the funniest and friendliest your'e likely to meet anywhere on this planet. I can't wait to get back there.

We landed into Kullu Manali airport and from there it's a few hours drive up into the valleys.

After a long and hungover flight from Amsterdam I really needed a little something to smoke so I went on the hunt and found some tasty cream. Time to get high in the mountains for the first time on this trip. Definitely not the last either.... This was very sweet and super sticky.

Time to kick back in freedom cafe and enjoy the cream. All over the mountains are little cafes that serve food and drinks and let ya smoke freely on the premises. Alot of them can help you on your search too...if ya get me..

Once we started our climb the local wild jungli plants started to fill out a little. They were everywhere you looked. Some purples, some greens just so many colours and smells. Up we go...

Here's a small piece of super cream we had the pleasure of smoking up in the fields. This piece was just sticky as fuck and a nightmare to handle. The hit of it was almost psychedelic. Powerful stuff. Have a video of it being made and will post that next.

Here's a picture of some tasty cream. This was priced around the euro a gram mark but that's before haggling and a bit of bargaining.

Below is a piece of cream I made myself above 3000 meters. This weighed about 1-2 grams and took me over an hour to rub. Got resin all over my camera on this trip....never interrupt the rubbing process to take photos...lesson learned. Took 30 mins to clean my camera off.

Very cool man I lived in the kullu Vally for almost 8years back in the late 80's early 90's in a little village called Koshla about a 3hr hike up from Vashist. At the time I was the only westerner the villagers had seen. I rented a whole 2 story house for $120US a mth. I had fresh milk delivered every morning and wasnt allowed to do my washing (thats a womens job). I was growing with the locals and was given my own plot and highered the best rubbers back then a rubber got about 50rups a day I payed 300rups and they loved me. I would take about 10kgs and run it down to Goa and sell to the tourists then after x-mas would head back to the mountians, best time of my life. I plan to retire there  :cool:  :cool:  :cool:  :cool:

This cream looks so fresh... Just a dream smoking it, without any mix in it, under its pure form from Mother Earth! Really nice !

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.
