Native strains or landrace strains are the basis of all modern marijuana strains.

Every continent has its own landrace strains They are very special because they are adapted to their external environment. They are filled with strong and powerful genes, which helped them to cope with all kinds of weather conditions. Landrace strains are considered the purest form of cannabis strains nowadays.

Most of the strains you can buy nowadays are hybrids, crossings created by growers to get the exact effect you want. The landrace strains are the rarest cannabis strains in the world. There are no hybrid varieties of landrace strains today. They are only Sativa dominated or Indica dominated, based on their cultivation environment.
