Manipur is in Northeastern India, which borders with Assam, Nagaland and Burma. It shares the characteristic wet/tropical weather with a little more tangible differences in summer and winter temperatures. The usual flowering time is around 14 weeks with a maximum of 16 weeks. Plants express an amazing structure and show vigorous lateral branching which stretches like veins in flowering and creates an octopus-like shape to the finished plants. The flowers are slim/e and express colors on the leaves towards the end of the flowering cycle with decreasing night temperatures. Flavors range from berries, floral, and woody, to a bit hashyness with good intensity as well. The floral dominated aromas come from green plants and purple plants are more berry. With that said, there’s a considerable woody undertone to the whole flavor, which is more of a pine-wood oil notes mixed with fresh wood chips.
The effects are very strong and are especially felt around the head. Uplifting and energizing, which builds up
The end of the year is a particularly festive time for Northeast/East Indian cannabis farmers since it’s close enough to the equator for the flowering to take up to 14-16 weeks and ripen around December, while places even closer to the equator (less than 15° from the equator) tend to go up to 20 weeks (e.g. Vietnam, Philippines) and only begin to come down around end of January or beginning of February.
