    What are the best African landraces?

    I don't frequent here too much as I usually am over at OG, but when it comes to info on landraces nothing beats ICMag's forums. I was hoping to find out from the few guys that are familiar with the various african landraces, which ones you preferred overall and perhaps which landraces were standouts as far as effects they produce.. I'm just looking to find some strains that are unique.
    So far I have collected Transkei, lesotho,ciskei,durban poison,Malawi,angola red X congo black, and Zamaldelica (hybrid with Zamal) and Moroccan.. I'm hoping to collect some from Ghana, Ethiopia and from Mauritius (which would be zamal mostly) And I hope to be able to collect from as many other parts of africa as I can also, though I am on a low budget so that hinders things greatly.
    Anyways I hope to get some feedback from some of you that have experience with various African strains.. Thanks again, Also I have some Transkei and lesotho seeds that I would love to trade for other African landraces..

    Senegal and Double Zamal by Underground Seeds Collective are pretty good.
    Cannabiogen has the Ghana.
    Ace has the Ethiopian.
    Good luck!

      The Landraces that are not genetically polluted with Skunks are generally good.
      I'm probably up to no good.

        Without any doubt Congolese landrace is the best. But since 2017 the rasta community there is contaminating their stuff with GHS shitty hybrids around Kinshasa.

        Forget to get Congolese seeds from seedbanks all they offer are simply false or Pakistan/Afghan hybridized.

        Any unhybridized seeds you can get from any country in the Gulf of Guinea would be great. Also But it is really difficult if not impossible.
        SAVE LANDRACES!!!

              Everyone will give a different answer depending on what they've smoked. Generally Malawi Gold and Zamal are considered the best, Malawi speedy and Zamal trippy. Both can be described as classic tropical sativas. Kariba surprise from Zimbabwe has the reputation of being the strongest. South African and Swazi tend to be faster flowering and can be partly mixed with Indian hashplants, they're relatively well suited to indoors. Swazi red and Ciskei have been very trippy and introspective. Durban is almost never pure anymore. From strains available commercially I'd probably rank Zamal and Ethiopian the highest but I've smoked both only as hybrids..
              We all have our crosses and IBLs to carry.

                      Most of the available strains out there are not real landraces. Even if they're undiluted tropical varieties they've been 'tamed', bred for shorter flowering times, bigger yields, much less demanding on the grower. Zamaldelica is an example, a great strain that I really want to grow but it's been bred enough generations it's not a landrace. Plus it's a hybrid and contains Thai genetics. Most of the seeds available are like this, and it's not necessarily a bad thing, but if you're looking for real landrace genetics they're hard to find. Are there any seed companies that offer real African landrace seeds like the Real Seed Company? RSC's Sinai is the only one I can think of.

                      There's strains that are a lot closer to landraces then others, Cannabiogen's Ghana has the look. The South African strains everyone mentions are close, there's Congolese strains that are close, but they're all removed from the source by several generations.

                        They also offer the Malawi, forgot about that myself. That would be my pick.

                          In real world ,african landrace is pygmme,bushmans and other nongrowers weed in black africa.
                          Ghana landrace is week,they smoke weed from ghana growers,
                          Nigerian landrace is river banks brickweed,very low potency(lagos area),people on the street
                          smoke very strong hibrids from muslims growers,
                          I sand seeds from Biafra(delta Niger) to Pylos,90%landrace 10%skunk,
                          Weed from there was strongest what I ever try
                          Once I saw Lucky Luke coming inside night bar in Port Harcourt,
                          But,30 years ago,I was 20 years old balcan boy

                            Do you have access to seeds from the landrace hybrid you speak of? Is it a Nigerian cross? I think you can find great examples from both Nigeria and Ghana as apparently some breeders have found some stellar plants in the gene-pool..

                              Was wondering if you had access to the strain you spoke of?
