S.African highland Sativa x NZ Purple Indica & N.Indian Sativa
18-21%, CBD: 0,2%, CBG: 1,0%
An up-high that spreads in waves; euphoric; creative; can also be spacey and dreamy at the start.
Properly cured buds have a natural sweet fragrance like dried apples. Purple plants spread a delicious raspberry fragrance, with a touch of minty freshness
Mandala #1 can benefit with its anti-anxiety & anti-depressive effect. It has up to 1% CBG which is beneficial for treating glaucoma, as a sleep aid, and for anti-microbial use. This strain can be applied for a variety of other medical uses as well due to its exceptional quality.

THE #1 OUTDOOR CHOICE FOR THE NORTH
Mandala #1 is a good choice if you are aiming for a quick crop with a sativa effect. We recommend this strain especially for northern climates where harvesting by the end of September is a priority. This strain has two basic phenotypes (characteristic plant types). Most of the plants belong to the sativa dominant phenotype and grow in a Christmas tree shape. The leaf structure is similar to the Indica dominant phenotype. Purplish leaf stems and light red stripes along shoots are not uncommon and should not be mistaken for a nutrient deficiency. The young flowering plants have a perfumed woody-herbal fragrance when you rub the stems.* Despite the sativa dominance the buds are chunky and the plants are easy to grow. The Indica type phenotype is apparent through it’s squater growth, thick main stem, and larger leaves. Branches are shorter, growing upwards close to the plant (perfect for SOG). The side shoots towards the top are also short and give the head buds a more compact structure. This pheno tends to develop a sweet-spicy smell during early flowering. Mandala #1 flowers with a spear-shaped head bud of considerable length that makes this a high yielder. Resin output is impressive – also outdoor. The prime head buds are coated with a thick layer of trichomes and glisten brightly in the sun. Some plants develop beautiful dark purple calyxes during mid-flowering: a trait which they inherited from the New Zealand Purple Indica in the paternal line. Harvesting is very simple since the calyx-to-leaf ratio is predominantly high.
One of our breeding goals is to ensure that our strains are flexible and stable so that plants can be raised indoor and undergo the light stress of switching between artificial lighting and sunlight. It is therefore possible to start your garden indoor and shift the plants outdoor for flowering. Cloning and regenerating Mandala #1 is easy. Since this strain has a high percentage of landrace genetics that was adapted to growing on nutrient poor soil, the plants subsist easily in good horticultural grade potting soil and require little feeding if any. We recommend providing an adequate pot size for healthy growth (see SOIL GUIDE for details). Height is average and even the sativa phenotype can be accomodated in small indoor spaces if a 12/12 light period is started early. A Sea of Green style cultivation is best with the Indica phenotype, or with clones (rather than from seed) of both phenotypes. All plants are suitable for SCROG and other forms of training.
This early flowering strain shares the benefits of hardy landrace genetics and a very resinous hybrid to produce robust plants with high bud quality. Mandala #1 impresses with its high cold and pest resistance. The early flowering traits in this cross initiate bud development quickly enough for an abundant yield in September. Even if harsh weather circumstances require harvesting before all plants reach full maturity, they will still deliver a satisfying amount of resin-coated buds.

“CBG has been shown to have pain-relieving and anti-depressant effects that are greater than THC (Evans 1991, Musty-Deyo 2006). CBG does not interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors like THC but instead interacts with different receptors, some that multi-billion dollar drugs target. These include adrenoreceptors and serotonin (5-HT1A) receptors (Cascio 2010).
Even though CBG was first isolated in 1964, the first report of a high CBG-producing plant wasn’t until the 1980’s, when it was discovered in a French hemp population. In 2005, a team of researchers identified a CBG plant in Italy.
They crossed this CBG plant with other THC and CBD plants of “good breeding value.” With the help of genetic analysis and chromatography, they were crossbred with different varieties and cultivars, until they identified a strain that produced high amounts of CBG, with little to no THC (de Meijer et al.2005).
Today, the only known high-yielding CBG variety is presently in the greenhouses of GW Pharmaceuticals, where CBG makes up a small but consistent portion of Sativex, a cannabinoid mouth spray. So while CBG and other varieties exist, they’re current exploration and usage seem to be sparse or under lock and key.THE #1 OUTDOOR CHOICE FOR THE NORTH Mandala #1 is a good choice if you are aiming for a quick crop with a sativa effect.
