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.

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.
