Malawi Gold is perhaps the rarest cannabis strain in the world. Fabled to produce flowers up to 2 feet (60 cm) long, coming across a real sample of this sweet and spicy bud is a treat.

Malawi Gold is one of the rarest strains in the world. The search for this pure, landrace sativa even inspires adventure tourism in the southeast African country. The best Malawi Gold is thought to come from the Salima region of the country, and this strain just isn't quite the same if grown outside of its native lands.

However, growers all over the world will get a lovely crop of Malawi Gold if they keep this bud in a warm greenhouse. Unlike many modern hybrids, the THC content of Malawi Gold is moderate. This strain ranges between 14 and 18% THC, which is a considerable amount for a landrace strain.

The overall high from Malawi Gold is brilliant, clear-headed, and energizing. As a pure sativa, this strain comes on fast and strong. Great to use in the morning, Malawi Gold is about as stimulating as a cup of coffee. However, for novice consumers or those sensitive to sativas, this strain can cause a little anxiety and paranoia.

If you can find it, medical cannabis patients often like this strain for relief from chronic fatigue, stress, and depression. This bud is also popular for those who suffer headaches, including migraines.

Growing Tips

The flowering period of this strain is extremely long, so those who not live in a tropical, equatorial climate will want to take this strain into a hot greenhouse. As a landrace strain, Malawi Gold is a bit unruly and difficult to grow indoors. Buds on this strain have reportedly grown as long as 60 centimeters (nearly two feet!). With such length, buds can weigh down branches. This sativa will need some support during flowering. As a pure, landrace sativa, this strain grows very tall, but it also produces lots of branches. Indoors, grow room temperatures should not be lower than 77°F (25°C) or 59°F (15 C) at night.
