HI there my friends,

i have order some stuff from a grow shop and when the package arrived i saw that they have offered me 7 lebanese red seeds... so here's my questions, because i can't get any info all over the web.

Is this a good weed to grow ?

It is a good strong high to smoke ?

Thanks in advance

the libanes strain is low size indica, not very srong (landrace),that takes from 8 to 10 weeks indoors and its not very productive neither as it happens with most of the pure strains coming from their origin countrys they can never be compared to strains like widow, skunk,because it has never been hibridized just crossed.
in another words if you are a truly indica lover and you have stronger shit going on its a good plant to have, otherwise another stronger indica or most indica strains will be more likely for you. anyway its a good plant to have outdoors, not very strong, mold resistant, early flowring, and if you like hash from lebanon expect a yellow earthy polm unless you use red soil so it will take its famous red shape.
i did it both in/out and for me its not worth it to grow it in, it may be too little productive, but outdoors with plenty of sun, water and good soil, turns into 1,5-2 meters plants with the normal indica shape, that produces medium size colas, normal indica hash smell, taste.
the only plant i did weight,with 183 yielded more than 800 grs of wich i made almost 90 gr of a fresh yellow polm of superb quality.

yea man i agree.
I live in Lebanon and honestly we don't have good weed strains here like white widow or super skunk.
however, we ve got one of the best hash in the world :D
so my advice is to plant it outdoors, read everything in this forum about making hash and watch some videos about it, and i'm positive you'll enjoy the hash pretty much
best of luck bro ;)

There is no more Red Leb. That's an old time strain long gone with the wind.

yeah what a shame it has been the best hash i ever tried and of course its gone.
due to bad growing conditions, not selective breeding ... makes that lebanese plant is now weaker than it was,happens the same in morroco, afghan...in morroco the plants most used in hash production is a one cola with no branches is due to dry climate, massive breeding, bad growers and is much weaker than it was twelve years ago (first time i smoke morrocan. i did remember the double zero (a.k.a. red bubble) its a legend in spain. you still see the old people talking bout this hash, as i can remember from twelve years ago to this day morrocan hash has become weaker, cheaper and tones of bad quality hash are now in spain. the polm i smoked at the begginig it was killer, it came from ketama and the prize was 7-8 € gr hard to get just a few dealt with it (too expensive) now you get several kinds of polm not more expensive than 3-3,5€ gr but is crap. double zero came in pieces we call eggs people ate them tto cross the border to spain and then shit it (no jokes), and you knew it was fresh because the smell, used to be at 10- 12 € gr it was hipnotic,mental high one of the best highs with hash ever had, now its just a legend some similar hash is now in spain, same way to get here, but no quality left, prizes now are from 5-8 € gr. but is not 00 anymore.
and people trying to bring new genetics fucked it up too, mixing landraces to skunk... as they say to bring potency to the land, this crap makes that if you go to jamaica you wont find any jamaican strains but you can get instead skunks, n.lights...
i think we should preserve all this legend strains, keep them away from crosses, because they are a part of history.
lebanon red if its real lebanon i think you should keep it in yoUr garden, specially if you tried lebanese hash. one of the best hash ever.

In the "old" days when hash was dominant there was:

1) Black Afghani (Afghanistan)
2) Red Leb (Lebanese)
3) Blond Leb (Lebanese)
4) Turkish Green (Turkish)
5) Purple Fingers (Nepalese)
6) Katmandu (Black Nepalese)

Most people here weren't even born when those strains were being inhaled.

yeahh!!! it is good enough to smoke it, its not as strong as any hybrid like jack herer... but a smooth smoke for relax, watch movies... you should use bio fertilizers (not too much), lots of sun and i'm sure that you'll be happy with the weed. as i said before dont use lots of fertilizers maybe guano or wormshit???(I dont know if its the real translation), i mean shit from the bats and worns, they release the nutrients slower than liquid fertilizers, good soil (not red soil unless you want to do hash) and as much sun as they can have. due to growing conditions in lebanon is a plant that dont need much water too, but if you want it to grow big give them like any other plant, depends of the conditions of course. its a real easy strain to grow but it can do some hermies, if you can take care of that i'm sure you wont have problems.
i hope it helps, good luck!

If it is red leb then youl be in 4 a treat its suspected that this strain is extinct im not sure but it was very popular bak in day.

Think the red leb hash is a grade of hash the red leb seeds r a strain of bun not necessarily used in making the hash.

You will get baked 4sure way back when it was popular it would have been grown outdors quite poorly nowadays any old skool strain grown with todays grow methods n technology will produce as potent buds as jack h n co i reference barnys farm acapulco gold as its one of strongest tastiest buds ive smoked n that was from amsterdam where the quality of bud has drastically declined yet an old skool landacre was knoking socks off most of bud there
