Thai Strain

Thai is a South-East Asian native that was born and bred in Thailand, with effects as exotic as its origin. This strain can be a little challenging for growers to cultivate away from the sub-topical climate it is used to, but it can be done with a little added humidity and lots of heat.

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period

Thai is a sativa variant that stems from Thailand and was eventually brought onto American soil in the 1970’s and the 1980’s. This landrace strain is often also referred to as “Thai Sticks” because of how this bud has been known to traditionally be dried while tied onto long sticks.

Many modern hybrids were created by crossing this purebred with other designer strains, growing a legacy of its own by being present in so many places. Thai is a very strong and potent flower but is also quite enjoyable, especially if you prefer an uplifting and energizing cannabis variant.

        8 comments on “Thai Strain”

        1. I Have grown Thai very successfully outside, here in southern Arizona where summers are hot and dry. And hot and hot. I eventually was Cutting the monsters back With large electric hedge trimmers as they got Enormous. They produced mostly brown light sweet airy buds with A very energetic buzz. I have no doubt it was an asian landrace strain and likely wild thai but not THE THAI—what i mean is that While i and all my friends really enjoyed this “Thai Stick” strain, it was not the legendary Thai of old that i smoked a great deal of in the 70’s that military guys i knew brought back home – i kno this and most people just dont understand that true Thai of legend had a smell and taste so incredibly unique it was like a fingerprint. The flavor and smell was so different from any other pot I have ever smoked and i would give anything for a taste. If you smoked REAL THAI in the 70’s you know what im talking about. If u didnt, i am sorry. You can wrap anything around a stick of bamboo but if it tastes at all like any other marijuana strain you have tried then it isnt the tried and true Thai of old and im sorry you missed it. I’d give my soul for a seed or two. That smell and taste when you lit up. People would run up and say WOW thats THAI isnt it!!??

        2. It makes me really stoned,but it didnt have a large yield 2oz. I will make a nice spot for indors. I also grew white widow last yr nice easy to grow…They also age

          • Hi Larry,

            Thanks for your comment. We’re happy to hear the quality was good. Sorry to hear about the small yield though.
            Kind regards,

        3. I smoked thai stick in amsterdam at the cafe Bulldog and it just knocked me out at the table in the Coffee shop.
          Best stuff ever

        4. This is the first year I’ve grown Thai. I live in a very hot and dry climate during summer months. My Thai plants started budding while the others were two weeks from harvest. This very exotic looking plant started out with long finger like buds, covered in white fur like hairs covering the buds. Now that it’s towards the end of the budding cycle, ( or should be) the flowers have bulked up significantly. I’m excited about the potential yield from this awesome plant. Although it’s now oct 31, my Thai which is growing outdoors is still weeks from being ready for harvest. I will have to bring it in before rainfall and finish the budding under lights. It by far has the largest flowers over the other 4 species I have grown. I’m a looking forward to tasting the fruits of my labor and will follow up after.
