It is well known that during the 1960s and early 1970s, the best hashish in the world could be found in the tea-houses of Afghanistan.
Reportedly adored by the country's ruler, King Saber Shah, It had unadulterated colour, texture and flavour with a sticky resin coating and has been described as tasting zesty, yet sweet like honey.
After the overthrow of the king and Russian invasion of the country, the quality of Afghan cannabis declined. It was first transported over by Mr Nice in 1970. The original quality of the strain is therefore able to live on in hybrids like this one.
Nordle would undoubtedly make an excellent addition to any collection.
Nordle, as with many other strains from Mr Nice, is a regular seed. For growers wanting to grow one strain solely, feminised seeds are often agreed to be the easier option.
For a grower wishing to create their own crop, however, as well as being a more robust variety, regular seeds also produce the much need male plants that enable fertilisation due to the pollen they produce.
A grower would be able to selectively breed the plants with the finest set of phenotypes, meaning the offspring will usually inherit the best qualities of the parent plants, whilst eliminating those less desired.
The resulting crop would be customised to the specific preferences of the grower. This is what makes the regular seed still very much a popular option, especially with growers of a more traditional ilk.
The expected flowering period for this strain is around 7 to 9 weeks and it is harvested in October in the Northern Hemisphere, but watch out for rain and mould, and from March to early April in the Southern Hemisphere.
A grower could expect a yield of between 500 and 750 grams per square meter generally.
