Nomad Seeds Australian Bastard Cannabis Description
This mutant strain came to our hands through an exchange and it has been a visual spectacle.
With its lobed leaves, small size and early outward flowering, it is one of the least cannabis-like varieties. Which makes it one of the most recommended varieties for guerrilla crops. It is a plant that can go unnoticed anywhere.
In addition to its curious taxonomy, it has a very discreet aroma of fresh fennel, which we will not be able to detect unless we stick our nose to the flowery tops.
Australian Bastard Cannabis IBL has an indoor flowering period of 8 to 10 weeks, this period being much shorter outdoors, because it starts flowering one month before the rest of normal varieties, being ripe for harvest between the beginning of August. and early September.
Note: Variety suitable for breeding projects.

Strain Name: Australian Bastard Cannabis (ABC) Inbred Line (IBL)
Sourced directly from Australia this cultivar will be unlike anything you’ve grown in your garden. This landrace was sourced from Never Never near Thora, NSW Australia, and has been preserved in seed form based upon a matching male and female from the same location. This project was designed to keep the genetics alive and to allow others to grow this unique plant. Well known for her leaf mutations and the way she grows; this will be a nice stealth option for many as well as provide a unique base for making new hybrids. This is a true IBL and the offspring will show the same leaf mutation as the parents.
The male of this IBL was selected due to its speed of pollen release for faster flower times and the mother based on her dense purple buds. Together this should enhance your experience growing this mutant species in hopes to shorten the flowering time and enhance the color of this pure landrace.
Her effect is like a Sativa and while it may not be as potent as more common strains, she offers lemon and earthy tones in her terp profile and I find that the smoke is rather uplifting. The flowering time is around 8-9 weeks and by finish, she will be covered in an array of flowers covered in a generous layer of resin. When growing this cultivar, I would recommend some space and proper training as its morphology is different than most cannabis strains.
What is the ABC strain? (Australian Bastard Cannabis)
Talk about an interesting mutation! The folks at Painted Forest Farms have been breeding cannabis strains with unique characteristics that almost look like a clover. They generously allowed us to repost their pictures with credit.
The unique leaf structure of ABC plants means they don’t really look like cannabis.
This wild hemp strain is originally from Australia and is sometimes called the ABC strain or Australian Bastard Cannabis. These plants naturally grow all over Australia.
Did you know? Cannabis is an extremely successful plant species ever and grows all over the world. Wild hemp plants have been found naturally growing on every continent except Antarctica.
The flowers of ABC plants stay small and aren’t particularly potent, but the breeding possibilities for stealth strains are intriguing. Auto-flowering strains originated from the wild hemp Ruderalis plants that naturally grow around Siberia, yet now offer a huge range of high-THC versions after extensive breeding. There’s no reason ABC plants couldn’t also be hybridized to grow big high-THC buds.
Note for breeders: The ABC leaf trait is recessive. That means a plant must receive the ABC trait from both parents for the trait to appear in the offspring. If you cross a pure ABC plant with a standard high-THC cannabis strain, chances are that every single plant of the first generation (F1) hybrids will have “regular” cannabis leaves (because the ABC trait is recessive). However, each of the F1 plants has one copy of the ABC genetic trait from their ABC parent, which means if you breed the F1 plants together, a percentage of the F2 hybrids will show the ABC characteristic. These can continue to be crossed and backcrossed with high-THC plants to retain the ABC leaf trait while improving the resulting flowers and yields over time. I made a quick explanation of recessive vs dominant traits as it relates to cannabis breeding if you’re interested in learning more.
I would love to grow one of these as a houseplant. Hidden in plain sight. For true lovers of the growing process!
