Lebanon has a long tradition of producing fantastic hashish, and the region’s best strains are renowned for their quality and breeding potential. Characteristic aromas of this Lebanese are cedar and pine, with sweetness and heavy aromas of fruit such as mango and cherry. Lebanese plants are typically compact and early maturing. Deep-red or purple colouration can show during senescence. CBD can be exhibited in exceptionally high double-digit quantities. Two main architectures can be found: Columnar plants grow to one central stem with minimal branching and are well-suited to breeding advanced industrial crops. Heavily branched phenotypes are often near-spherical (e.g. 90 by 90 cm). This particular Lebanese accession has notable pedigree, originating in one of the most renowned mountain regions above Bekaa Valley, which is traditionally where the finest Lebanese hashish has been produced. *NOTE: Bekaa Valley has been a major centre of commercial hashish production for export since the early 20th century. The crops employed in that era were probably introduced by the Levantine smuggling networks that controlled Mediterranean smuggling to Egypt, then among the world’s largest markets for hashish. The plants are likely to have been similar to those cultivated in Greece, which was the major regional producer until the 1930s. Afghan seeds are said to have been introduced to Bekaa in 1974. A further factor is hemp (subsp. sativa), which was briefly cultivated in the valley during ’90s in misguided crop substitution programs."
