 I found this hybrid to be extremely complex and wonderful, highly motivational, creative, and uber potent with that “freight train” kind of sativa intensity. The flavors and smells are equally exotic and complex themselves, with notes of vanilla/cream, and orange cream soda as a background to a very butterscotch side with notes of caramel. Crazy delicious! Not a big commercial type yielder, just average in that respect, but off the charts for a true connoisseur.

Just Sparkling with Resin

THE DEETS

The (paternal P1) father is my Cherry Malawi; a hybrid of landrace Malawi I acquired from South Africa over a decade ago from “Tokestar”. And my old F3 Cherry Bomb out of Hawaii also acquired over a decade ago. This male brings some serious resistance, vigor, and heartiness to the hybrid; along with massive resin production and high yields. Also, the Cherry Malawi is well known for creeper/intense potency with effects that last 4 hours easily and imparts exotic honeysuckle/vanilla/cherry terpenes to the whole flavors and smells side of things.

The (maternal P1) female, KOS’ own Moonshine Skunk; a 2-way hybrid of Deep Chunk and Skunk (Red Russian Skunk) both are long IBL lines with severe goodness across a wide bandwidth. The terpenes are acrid in this hybrid, skunky and honey-oil/fuel with colossal amounts of resin produced on huge stalked trichomes.

Not Super Rock Hard but Hard Enough

The Malawi Moonshine will no doubt get fairly large outdoors (untested outdoors as of yet) or given a high energy environment. This hybrid is really “The Clash of the Titans” bringing together long inbred lines from all over the world. The Skunk line is the original as far as I know, and I was there when Skunk became a thing. I call my Skunk “Red Russian Skunk” because before it was called Skunk, it was called Red Russian. A very long IBL (inbred line). The Malawi, straight from South African local cannabis farm to me. Super exotic from terpenes to effects, super drought tolerance and wild-child vigor with tons of resin. Last but not least, the very long IBL from Afghanistan, the Deep Chunk—wicked exotic phenotypes will abound.

Old School Sativa Floral Morphology

THE SMOKING RUN DOWN BY REV

I ran two different phenotype female Malawi Moonshine recently. They grew fairly classic sativa style (Christmas Tree) one phenotype had a much higher calyx to leaf ratio, but it also yielded about 10% less. Both shared super exotic flavors that were butterscotch with an orange/citrus background that is sharper, it’s magically delicious. The potency of both was very high, and the ride was intense with that old school “freight train” quality and lasting strong and long—2.5 hours solid peak for me.

The high is the kind that comes on slowly over the course of about 10-15 minutes, then stays solid for at least a couple of hours with a nice dreamy smooth come-down over the course of 30 minutes or so. This is straight up muse herbs, really complex and creative to the max. Any artists dream-weeds for reals, I think. To me it is very introvertedly oriented, not in a paranoia kind of way, but rather the ride is a serious inward journey, personal, artistic.

Not sleepy at all, not a heavy munchie-type either, although anything you do eat while under her influence will be amazeballs! She delivers a mean case of red-eye, a good dose of cottonmouth, and damn decent head rushes. Super happy up high, no paranoia or edginess but still quite motivating.

Classic Sativa Form and Easy to Grow

Points to Consider Growing Malawi Moonshine Hybrid:

  • I wouldn’t recommend growing this outdoors along the coast, or where any kind of morning fog or mist is a thing. She may be alright with limited exposure, but I would advise against it.
  • She will do extremely well in dry environments and can even handle some hard-core drought stress; snap back like a champ. She has the Malawi and the Afghani leading the charge here.
  • Indoors she does very well, high vigor and strong branching makes her a good candidate for nets when topped. Long colas are pretty sativa like and not rock hard dense.
  • I would really watch out not to over-water this baybee.
  • I would recommend for the maximum complexity of the resin profile to harvest these plants when the resin heads are about 30-35% amber overall.
  • If you are an all-natural grower using living soil, you will be fully able to appreciate the complex terpenes here with the butterscotch and the orange citrus background/finish. Ends up with cream soda or orange cream soda in your mouth when all is said and done.
The Rev
I'm The Rev, and I have been with SKUNK for about a decade now. I hail from Southern California, spent mucho time in Northern California, and now reside in Southern Oregon; always coastal. I am an all natural style cannabis grower and I have written a couple books on the subject - check out True Living Organics 2nd Edition on Amazon - I have been growing for over 45 years, and I have been breeding cannabis for over 30 years. Check out kingdomorganicseeds.com to see some exotic selections. Growing connoisseur cannabis is what I teach mostly, growing it in living soil without using liquid organic nutrients to feed the plant. I am also a highly skilled synthetics grower, hydroponics, aeroponics, DWC/SWC/NFT, Ebb and Flow, and soilless, but I cringe when smoking synthetic grown herbs, so for the last 15 years or so I preach the artisan style of all natural growing, specializing in container growing. Cheers and welcome aboard.
