8 Miles High was named after a song written by The Byrds after they flew to London while being super stoned. Mandala Seeds chose the name as a tribute to the band. The strain was created by Mandala Seeds by crossing two well-established landraces, African Sativa and North Indian Indica, resulting in a slightly Sativa leaning hybrid. These two landraces were selected for breeding with the intention of creating a low maintenance easy to grow strain that would finish flowering by mid-October in Northern climates.
