Ace Seeds – Nigeria Strain – Reg Photo


This pure old school African Sativa was originaly part of Afropips’ seed collection. It is the Original Nigerian offered in Amsterdam Coffee shops in the 80’s. Its woody/hashy/musky aromas and good high will remind some cannabis aficionados of the dark seeded African buds prevalent in Europe in the 1980’s.

Most historians believe that cannabis was introduced into Nigeria at the beginnning of the nineteenth century. Despite its late introduction, cannabis has since been cultivated on a large scale in most parts of the country.

This Nigerian cultivar can display some broad leaflets at the beginnining of the vegetative phase. As the plants grow taller and start flowering, the leaves become narrower and narrower. Because of frequent rainfalls during its flowering phase, this cultivar has developed the ability to withstand high humidity. Its good mold resistance along with its ability to flower quite early allow this strain to give great results outdoors in most places.

The Nigerian Sativa effects are quite potent. At first, the high is clear and uplifting, very Sativa-like. After about 45 minutes however, these classic Sativa effects give way to a feeling a well being and relaxation. Harvesting early versus late will also have a huge impact on the effects, making them more or less uplifting. Lastly, this Nigerian cutivar tends to cure very well, becoming even more potent after a few months’ cure.

This unique strain used to be part of Afropips’ seed collection. After Afropips Seedbank shut down around 2010, the underground community then started preserving this Nigerian cultivar. In 2020, the Khalifa Team finally acquired this African strain via the collector community. Unfortunately, the first reproduction run revealed a huge proportion of hermaphrodites. After doing 2 more controlled open pollinations (3 in total) the Khalifa team was able to significantly improve the sexual stability of this Nigerian sativa.

This rare Nigerian cultivar is recommended to collectors, preservationists and breeders looking for a mold-resistant and fast flowering Sativa with unique musky/woody terpenes.

(Disclaimer: When growing cannabis there is something called phenotypical expressions. This means a strain can express itself (look differently) from plant to plant. Our breeder photos show one of potentially many phenotypical expressions)
