Malawi Gold is a legendary pure African Sativa Landrace noted for her psychoactive effects. Cannabis production is at an all-time high in Malawi and is referred to as one of the countries three “Big C’s” of export; Chambo (Tilapia Fish), Chombe (Tea), Chamba (Cannabis). The World Bank reports that Malawi Gold is among “The best and finest cannabis strains in the world” and her fame has seen a sharp increase in Cannabis tourism in recent years. The cultivators of this heirloom cannabis strain are the Chewa people, a rural community of fishermen, farmers, and cattle herders. The buds are wrapped in banana leaves to cure them and preserve their pineapple flavor. Also, the tribe’s healers are said to use the flowers to achieve a trance-like state during ceremonies.
