Swazi Gold

Swaziland is a landlocked country sandwiched between South Africa and Mozambique. Despite Swaziland’s small size, it boasts more hectares of land dedicated to growing Cannabis than all of India. It is also home to Swazi Gold, the legendary sativa strain.

Hamilton Morris travels to Swaziland hoping to chemically analyze the cannabinoids present in some of the local strains. Instead, he finds a country steeped in political corruption and economic turmoil. Cannabis is viewed by many growers, users, and politicians as a drug that will cause insanity, but it may be Swaziland’s only hope for economic stability.

Last summer we traveled down to Africa to explore Swaziland’s bouldering potential. What a memorable time down in a new part of Africa with Jimmy Webb, Cameron Maier, Clement Perotti and Julie La Guigne! A lot of great lines went down, found some futuristic projects and got to experience the hospitality and the culture of the Swazi people! Video series of our trip coming out soon! Meanwhile check out a great blog post:
