Thai Stick

Thai Sativa

The classic Thai weed was dark, ugly, stringy, and affordable. The super sparse buds were not very big and were packaged for trade compressed and wrapped around a bamboo or hemp stick and wrapped with hemp fiber. The thai stick made its way around the world in the 1960's and 1970's, thanks in part to the horror known as the Vietnam War.

The typical Thai Stick was a Sativa landrace strain offering a strong bewildering energetic buzz (for the time) with appetite stimulation. Thai is traditionally a "creeper" that slowly takes effect and lasts for hours. The smell and taste varied based on the age and shipping conditions, but often was peppery or chocolaty. See Chocolate Thai Thai Sticks were purportedly sometimes dipped in Cannabis oil or opium as a "value add-on".

Old schoolers tell us the true Thai Stick was gone by the 1980's, but perhaps the same landrace Sativas exist in Thailand's deep underground. Today, these pure Sativas would primarily be considered for breeding projects.
