Kerela’s fertile soil is known to grow many amazing things such as coconut, Vanilla and who can forget the species or especially the black pepper which made Vasco Da Gama to land at calicut beach on 20th May 1498. One more thing for which Kerela is famous is “Idukki gold”.
If you are person who smokes weed then you must be familiar with this name because it is among the best hash in the country after Malana cream.
So here are some amazing facts about Idukki gold/ Kerela gold which no one will tell you
THC content in Idukki gold
THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol. Which is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis. Its condition totally depends on the temperature in the surroundings. Some theories claim that Idukki plants may contain 28- 30% of THC which is pretty huge percentage because the average cannabis plant produce it around just 5 to 7% so you can imagine how strong is “Kerela’s gold“.
You must be thinking that why it is called as GOLD. This is due to a reason that the hash produced from the plants is golden in color from where the name is framed.
Climate of Idukki
Idukki Gold is extracted from cannabis plant which is named as Indica. Adapted to the Western ghats climate these plants pertain the property of being wind resistant and rain resistant which adds further to the quality of cream. Western Ghats has long been known for the diversity of plants growing in the region due the amazing climate. Idukki gold in easy words is an amazing example of perfect weather condition for cannabis farming in the region.
The best part about Idukki Gold is the high oil content and an intensely fragrant aroma. The tremendously high oil content of the Kerela Gold accounts for it to be one of the most expensive and best hashish in the cannabis menu at Amsterdam. Even cannabis dealers in New Delhi quote very high prices for their products claiming Idukki Gold to be fetched directly from the village. As told earlier this cream is a hardy strain accompanied by very exquisite aromatic resins.

Malana cream lies in the first category. It taste is amazing never hits you in throat and gives you a feeling which cannot be delineated in words. That is the reason why this village has become one of the world’s top stoners destinations
