Thai induces powerful but comfortable effects and has a distinct fruity, citrus aroma. This strain is a challenge for growers outside tropical climates, but greenhouse gardens make this grow possible for experts patient enough for Thai’s long growth cycle and slow flowering.

“Really nice old school sativa that isn't too overpowering. Ideal for a wake and bake or light activities.

Not sure about prices in America but in UK and The Netherlands it costs about half the price than skunk, sometimes less.”
