Kilimanjaro originates on the hillsides surrounding Kenya's and Africa's highest mountain. It has been selectively bred by the local natives for many generations before being brought to Europe where it has undergone further stabilisation to improve its resin production. Kilimanjaro is a pure sativa marijuana strain with a short flowering period. It grows well, reaching as high as 250 cm. tall, in both indoor and outdoor environments and produces many branches; indoors it is ready after 60 - 70 days of florescence whereas plants cultivated outdoors in northern latitudes will be harvested in early November which rules out all but Mediterranean-type climates or warmer ones where frosts will not pose a threat. As long as plants remain frost-free they will still develop amazingly big buds in less than perfect conditions and this is also a really good strain for greenhouse cultivation at higher latitudes. Indoor yields average about 350 gr/m The natives refer to this weed strain as the "elephant killer", a reference to its potency. They use it as a part of their religious ceremonies and also before hunting trips to psyche themselves up and sharpen their senses. It has a strong citrus aroma and flavour and THC can reach levels of 20%. The effect generated is cerebral, stimulating and very energetic - perfect for those hunting trips!
