As close to a pure Sativa as you can get, Atlas is a phenotype derived from the beloved Durban Poison originating from South Africa. Atlas is a fabulous daytime strain, with a clear, functional effects package that stimulates creativity, sociability, and overall mood. This landrace strain is very energetic and is considered as one of the more pure-feeling Sativa varieties widely available on the market.
What is a landrace strain?
The landrace strain is a cannabis strain that has developed over centuries in a particular natural environment. Different cannabis cultivars that have grown, inbred and adapted to very specific geographical locations are pure cannabis strains.
Over time, these strains have developed unique characteristics to better survive in their distinct climate. We can understand landrace strains to be true indigenous cannabis plants.
The truly South African Durbans are known for being extremely racy and borderline psychedelic. However, toned-down Dutch versions that circulate the United States and Europe lose some of that edge, perhaps for the benefit of the average consumer.
Energetic & racy, yet toned down as to not overdo it, Atlas’s most notable benefits include an increase in energy, focus, migraine relief, and anti-nausea. Atlas is known for its spicy/sweet anise-like aroma and flavor, attributed to the distinct blend smells including fennel/anise, orange, lemon, and creamy sweetness.
