Strains with histories that traverse Afghanistan, Hawaii, Korea, the U.S, and Europe are all melded together in this 3-way cross. An exotic looking strain, Lavender develops the darkest purple coloration you can imagine.
The color is intense, with the leaves turning nearly to black at the ends, they are so deeply saturated with color. The extra dense buds give off a sensually spicy smell akin to Afghani hash.
The high calyx to leaf ratio and the legginess of this plant make for simplified manicuring. While not as tall as the Haze strains, Lavender can shoot to tall heights when allowed an extended vegetation period before being placed into the flowering phase. If her cannabis seeds are grown in a sea of green, Soma recommends a shortening the veg cycle in order to control the height.
This strain will also do well as a multi-branched plant. Outdoors, this variety can thrive in a most temperate zones, although arid climates known for their rich agricultural promise are of course optimal.
Lavender has a flavor that is similar to Afghani hash, producing a captivating effect that circulates through every chakra. Lavender will leave you feeling relaxed and mellow, possibly to the point of sleep.
