One of our breeding goals is to ensure that our strains are flexible and stable so that plants can be raised indoor and undergo the light stress of switching between artificial lighting and sunlight. It is therefore possible to start your garden indoor and shift the plants outdoor for flowering. Cloning and regenerating Mandala #1 is easy. Since this strain has a high percentage of landrace genetics that was adapted to growing on nutrient poor soil, the plants subsist easily in good horticultural grade potting soil and require little feeding if any. We recommend providing an adequate pot size for healthy growth (see SOIL GUIDE for details). Height is average and even the sativa phenotype can be accomodated in small indoor spaces if a 12/12 light period is started early. A Sea of Green style cultivation is best with the Indica phenotype, or with clones (rather than from seed) of both phenotypes. All plants are suitable for SCROG and other forms of training.
This early flowering strain shares the benefits of hardy landrace genetics and a very resinous hybrid to produce robust plants with high bud quality. Mandala #1 impresses with its high cold and pest resistance. The early flowering traits in this cross initiate bud development quickly enough for an abundant yield in September. Even if harsh weather circumstances require harvesting before all plants reach full maturity, they will still deliver a satisfying amount of resin-coated buds.
Very dense long foxtail buds.Extremely crystally inside and out. Very beautiful colors lots of golds, pinks, reds, browns and even some purples. A few phenos were more of the New Zealand Purple and were very dense and fatter, christmas tree shaped and were a beautiful purple pink color.]
When you first open a jar it smells very distinctly like orange cream soda, then it morphs into a variety of citrus smells,orange, lemon, and lime.The single buds smell very smokey and earthy on a deep inhale. Overall very delicious indeed, I give it a 10 on smell.
Very smooth smokey, citrus, earthy flavor. This is organic, dirt grown medicine and is very easy on the throat with very little coughing involved.
According to the pheno you are smoking, mostly sativa effects. Very mood enhancing, psychedelic effects that hit immediately and started with a warming effect throughout the body.This sativa is not like alot of the psychoactive sativas in that the strain is bred to take out alot of the heart racing, paranoid effects of some sativas. Mike Mandala crossed in the New Zealand purple indica in just the right amount to tone down the frantic effects of the strong landrace sativas. However the strain is very psychedelic and thought provoking, very fun and enjoyable experience.
Why do Patients Use Mandala #1?

It shows huge potential for its anti-anxiety and anti-depressive effects, not to mention its vast energizing and simulative qualities which might have quite a lot of applications for psychological conditions. As a Sativa, it might not be the best option for chronic pain and is best kept for use in the morning as opposed to the evening.
