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 Experience

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, marijuana 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 this flower is brilliant, clear-headed, and energizing. As a pure Sativa, this strain comes on fast and strong.

Great to use in the morning, Malawi 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.


Traits of Malawi Gold and Malawi Gold Seeds

This herb’s flavors and aromas are as rare in the marijuana world as the strain itself. Incredibly sweet aromas will remind some cannabis consumers of candy.

Real weed connoisseurs will detect notes of berries, coffee and even nuts. Smoke is generally very smooth, with just a hint of lemon revealing itself on the exhale.

As with the classic Thai Sativas, Malawi produces long, tapered nugs. The ragged leaf structure gives them an almost fluffy appearance, while the huge trichome content makes for some incredibly sticky weed.


Medical Benefits of Malawi Gold

While its rarity makes it tough to depend on, medical marijuana consumers who get their hands on this classic Sativa appreciate its therapeutic qualities.

  • 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
  • The sustained focus offered by this strain can be effective for medical marijuana patients looking to alleviate symptoms of ADD/ADHD
