Heirloom strains are similar to landrace strains, but can be thought of as the first strains to be cultivated by humans. An heirloom strain is what you would consider an old-school variety of agricultural cannabis. They have been taken from their original location and cultivated in a different environment.

Typically, heirloom strains have had some genetic modification through cross-breeding and hybridization. Overall, these plants are still close to their landrace ancestors, but with just a little human intervention.

The strains now native to South and Central America, for example, are heirloom strains. It is thought that many of the strains now adapted to this region descended from landrace African strains like Angola Red (Angola Roja).

Hawaiian strains are also heirloom strains. Cannabis is not native to Hawaii, but these classic strains were brought over and are less hybridized than many modern varieties.
