Over the past decade, few strains conquered the Bay Area like Gold Seal’s Red Congolese grown in the heart of San Francisco. With a cannabinoid profile reminiscent of South Africa’s wildest landrace genetics jumping out of the jar as soon as you crack it, it’s easy to understand why people looking for something with a bit more energy come in droves for the latest Red Congo drops. Part of what makes Red Congolese special is time. While so many producers continue to hunt down the fastest finishing phenotypes of cannabis possible in search of a quick buck, Red Congolese is aged to its full maturity and potential 12 weeks into flowering. Red Congolese took third place in the Solid BHO category at the 2019 Emerald Cup in collaboration with the Live Resin Project.
