“Moroccan Beldia” Feminized Cannabis Seeds – ACE Seeds Genetics
Moroccan Beldia feminized by Ace Seeds is the traditional hash plant from the Rif area near Ketama and Chefchaouen, famous for the production of kif (the traditional blend of cannabis flowers with tobacco) and the famous Moroccan blonde hashish.
This pure Moroccan strain is one of the fastest psychoactive sativa landraces on the planet, thanks to her semi autoflowering traits and very short flowering time.
Traditionally, this strain is sown in early spring, begins flowering in June, and is harvested as early as August, when it begins to be worked and beaten by hand to produce the traditional Moroccan hash, the quality of which varies according to the size of the sieve and the amount of time the flowers are beaten.
Moroccan plants are small/medium sized. They start out with fairly broad leaves, but as they reach sexual maturity and flowering they develop into a pure sativa with foxtail floral structures, quickly building up to form good sized buds. There are 2 main phenotypes based on their structure.
The more common phenotype grows very columnar and tall, while the second phenotype is smaller, shorter and more branched.
This variety is grown with a very high density of plants in its native land, with very little fertilizer and water, which means that it has developed excellent resistance to heat and drought, performing perfectly with little care and low nutrient levels, the making her an ideal strain for outdoor guerrilla growing in hot, dry climates.
Morocco is the largest producer of hashish in the world, with its famous hashish being the most exported, especially to Europe. Unfortunately, since the beginning of the 21st century, a massive introduction of foreign indoor genetics from Europe and North America has taken place in Morocco in order to increase hash production and potency.
Although this has been achieved on some farms where these foreign genetics are grown with greater care, genetic contamination has also meant that Moroccan hashish has gradually lost its characteristic psychoactivity and the distinctive “golden” and soft terpenes, which made Moroccan hashish is a global benchmark in the 20th century cannabis scene.
Some Moroccan growers have now realized that these new foreign genetics require much more care, water and fertiliser, are harvested much later than traditional Moroccan varieties and do not have the same resistance to heat and pests outdoors.
Old Moroccan varieties are still best suited to growing in large remote plots with scarce irrigation resources that cannot be tended as carefully.
For this reason, a group of old school Moroccan growers offered us ancient Moroccan seeds for their reproduction and conservation, before the relentless genetic contamination completely wipes out the old Moroccan strains in their original state.
As a result of this conservation work, ACE Seeds brings you this mythical hash plant in its purest original form.
