Unlike other hash plants, Nepali ganja is tall and bushy, producing stems packed with alternating floral clusters. Temple Ball hash is one of several sought-after grades of charas made from this special cannabis family.
From the other side of the Himalayas comes a fat, compact Kush Indica, which controls the less practical aspects of the Nepali for indoor growing and allows a good yield from the long, full buds. Naturally, this Afghani parent adds its own special flavours and resins to the Nepal Kush hybrid.

An old-school Nepali domesticate direct from Rolpa, Midwest Nepal, the Himalayan heartland of hand-rubbed high-mountain charas. Rolpa produced the classic Nepali charas of the Hippie Trail-era. This is the plant that fed the heads of ’60s Kathmandu, the strain from which Nepalese Temple Balls and the like were produced.
Nepali plants haven’t yet been affected by introduced modern hybrids, but it’s only a matter of time. This is an authentic Nepali domesticate and a must-have for collectors.
Photos show dry-sieved Nepali charas, and two previously collected accessions from elsewhere in Midwest Nepal, one specialized for resin, one multipurpose. The last two indoor photos show a plant from this more recent accession from Rolpa.
