Authentic Moroccan Beldia From the Rif Mountains
Also known as Kief, the Moroccan Beldia is the variety Riffian farmers used for decades to produce the old school blond/chocolaty Moroccan hash. This landrace strain is easy to grow both indoors and outdoors as it can withstand droughts, high temperatures and thrive in a poor soil. Its sweet honey smell and delicate floral and minty taste are unlike any other strain.
Probably one of the fastest-flowering Sativas in the world, this plant is very well suited for outdoor cultivation. Because this variety has adapted to the harsh arid climate of the Moroccan Rif it can withstand high temperatures and thrive with very little water or nutrients.
The plants are vigorous but do not grow many side branches which makes this strain highly suitable for Sea Of Green setups. Indoors, the Beldia finishes in only 7 to 9 weeks of flowering. Outdoors, the plants are ripe between the end of August and the end of September. The Moroccan Landrace is low-maintenance and is easy to grow both indoors and outdoors.
The smoke is sweet and floral with minty and spicy undertones. The Beldia is a fast hitter with a clear joyful high that doesn’t last for too long.
Its delicate smell is reminiscent of sweet honey. It is very unique and completely different from what cannabis often smells like. That is why it is ideal for guerrilla growers.
Our team collected these seeds years ago in several remote mountainous areas of the Chefchaouen province. In these locations, farmers were still only growing the old Moroccan Beldia. That is why this line is still very pure.
These seeds are the result of 4 generations of open pollination. The goal was to decrease the proportion of weak plants and hermaphrodites while preserving the genetic diversity of this strain.
The Moroccan Landrace is at least 800 years old and is now quickly disappearing from the Rif Mountains. Moroccan farmers have used it for hash-making since the 1960’s. Prior to that, they used to cultivate it for its fine flowers. Some old-timers in Morocco still like to smoke the kief flowers in their long wooden pipes.
