A landrace strain is the original cannabis strain from different regions of the world with the same DNA, and genetics that have not been altered for thousands of years. The original landrace strain is traced back to the Hindu Kush region, which is known today as Pakistan and Afghanistan. This Hindu Kush, or Kush, is the original landrace strain that was eventually transported to other areas of the world. The hearty cannabis plant adapted to the area it evolved, whether the warm, humid temperatures of the Caribbean and South America or the barren lands of Russia. These other landrace strains are indigenous to their original environment, carrying varying properties, cannabinoid and terpene profiles.
