ACE's Malawi seems to have a lot to offer as far as phenotype diversity. This one's major quality was to be a quick finisher but it is not as potent and psychedelic as the other one I grew with the A5. It is some good smoke but nothing crazy here.

Malawi has a very strong, fragrant, fragrant smell. I can say that I lit a fire at half past 1 and I still have a hard time moving my eyes. The eyes are clear, although if you move your gaze (evening) from darkness to light you see small signs of shadow. Interesting! The high lasts a long time and is very pleasant in taste, smell.
I have nothing to blame them for.

This was one of those sativas that appear to consume all of its own fan leaves. Each branch was essentially a huge cola that trimmed down into large popcorn buds. Light bud structure with absolutely INTENSE trichome/resin coating throughout. Each snip resulted in a cloud of resin that shone like gem dust in the air. It was a relatively easy grow with very pleasing results. It's in the curing stage now, but first taste test was great. This could be the most clear-headed, delightfully intense sativa I've ever had. Landraces come with the best medicinal effects, people. Hybrids tend to increase the negatives, such as anxiety. This is a perfect landrace sativa.

Malawi have a lot to offer. This plant is not the same phenotype has the other I have grown. I can tell from the smell. I am drying this plant and will update a full smoke report.

I have been smoking Malawi for a few days and feel like it is time to update

Malawi is the strongest weed I have ever smoke. I live in Canada; the only country it is fully legal to produce distribute and use re-creative cannabis. Multi million dollar company fighting against each other in pheno hunt and breeders associations. This strain stands out.

Malawi have a very fast and strong onset. High slams the forehead with a wave of heat from the very firsts hits. Eyes becomes heavy. As you smoke it inhalations are like a jab you receive and leaving you in a state of semi consciousnesses as what the fuck is going on??! From first till last hit. This weed is very strong, hallucinogenic. This drug is vey disruptiv. Mind is getting disconnected from body like a different entity from body. Vision is distored a bit, and it is definitely more on the couch lock category because of it's potency and effects. But forget about following a movie!! It is still very nice to smoke and perfect for week end or after work. Taste turned Tropical fruity, Nutty, hint of Vanilla and Pine.

Yield was medium. Quarter pound total of dried bud for a 2x2 plant meaning potebtially a pound for a 4x4, under 1000w.

-this is a 10 stars strain, first rating cannot be changed.

Phenotype 1: This one was very Sativa while growing. Very narrow finger leaves with long internodes. At harvest time, the smell was sweet, lemony, with a hint of oil. Once dried, it reminds me old school C99 and Jack H. Very nice smell. As it is curing, tne nutty taste takes over (hazelnut, roasred peanut). Buds are covered in small trichomes, airy, light green with deep orange pistils. Plant was not grown in optimal conditions as it was so small.

Smoke test was perform in morning with about 0,75g. of buds rolled in joint.

At the very first hit I felt deep intense effect. Warm in the eyes, the front of the head. After the 3rd hit and so, feelings were already intense like I usually get from a joint of top shelf dispensaries. It has very fast onset. Smoking the rest of the joint was hard. But I did what I had to do!
Taste is tropical fruits and nuts (hazelnut). Smoke is deep, rich and creamy, leaving a coaty feeling around your lips.

Effects are not on the 'Energetic-creative' spectrum. Effects are warm with a mix of deep head and body. At first you feel the psychedelic effects: your brain is slower than eyes, feeling a bit disoriented, eyes get to focus on things while the rest feel distorted. I over did it and should have ate before, feeling a bit of nausea. Effects are powerful and a bit sedative, feeling focused and lost. Very trippy like if you over do-it on edibles. When ACE says don't drive under this they are right on and spot on. I am gonna have to try with a redbull (or coffee for those who likes it...) to get more intense effects and get moving.
So not a day smoke. Feelings are intense but very enjoyable. Not for beginners.

Phenotype 2: Sample test was done in same conditions as the other one. Effects happened to be very similar but a little less physical-narcotic. Taste and appearance are hard to describe and enjoy as it was a 2 gram harvest and half of it is stem and branches.

I really recommend this strain. Don't be intimidated to grow a sativa landrace indoor in tent. Do not follow the breeder's advice to flower plant from seeds or as soon as clone as rooted. Also this strain does not require extra lightening standard 35-50 watts of HID or high end LED per sq. foot is perfect. Just like with other strains more watts will require CO2 supplement for the plant to use it. I tried it. Too much light (75+ w. per sq ft) is lowering growth rate.
Strain is resilient to heat and dry air.

I am trying to choose from the emoticon bellow to describe the high but non of them really apply.

Added June 28 for posterity . . . The Malawi has now had a 2 month cure in mason jars. It smells like an overripe exotic fruit bowl. I rolled a .4 gram joint to sample. I smoked 1/2 & went for a walk with my dog. After about 10 minutes, lift-off occurred with a very rounded intense sativa buzz. Mild light distortions, clear thoughts but a solid stone. This strain is strong & beginners should ease their way into it. I will grow this again.
