Overview(top)

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). Approximately 30% 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 pheno. 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 pheno is apparent through its 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 in outdoor grows. 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.
Mandala #1 shows potential in it’s anti-anxiety and anti-depressive effects. As this is a new strain we will be updating further benefits once feedback comes in from med users. Properly cured buds have a natural sweet fragrance like dried apples. The purple plants spread a delicious raspberry fragrance, with a touch of minty freshness
High: an up-high that spreads in waves; euphoric; creative; can also be spacey and dreamy at the start.

The Mandala #1 phenotypes grow peacebly alongside one another indoors. Harvesting and cloning this plant is simple given its hardiness and high calyx-to-leaf ratio.

For outdoor growers in northern climates where harvesting by the end of September is a priority, Mandala #1 is an excellent choice. This hardy hybrid has been grown successfully in latitudes between 35-38 degrees N, even in difficult weather conditions in Canada, Switzerland, and Eastern Europe. The combination of robust landrace genetics produces early-flowering plants that beginners can grow.

Purplish leaf stems and light red stripes along shoots should not be mistaken for a nutrient deficiency. Despite the sativa dominance in the high, the bud structure is more indica-chunky, with a spear-shaped main bud of considerable length. The prime buds are coated with a thick layer of trichomes and glisten brightly with their magic promise.
