The Evolving African Cannabis Market

Similar to the strains in the United States, many of these cultivars have disappeared from Africa over the years. Thankfully, friend and Humboldt Seed Company Chief Science Officer Ben Lind has been working to preserve the unique characteristics of these ancient cannabis landrace strains and secure genetics specific to the bioregion. Currently, he is collaborating with Arbour Collective in South Africa to hybridze the Transkei strain to create a new stable varietal suitable for farmers in the region.
