Jamaican High Grade Growing Wild!

I couldn’t wait to do this post from the minute I snapped these pictures! Jamaican high grade (marijuana) actually grows wild in the Blue Mountains! We checked into a guest house high up in the mountains a couple weeks ago and discovered through a little hike in the hills that marijuana up here just grows where ever it wants! The owners of the guest house told me that probably one day a long time ago someone was building a spliff and some seeds just fell out into the ground.

Now I’m not a weed smoker but finding these plants really fascinated me because not too many people can say they just stumbled across a big Marijuana plant and got to play in it! Whenever people in Jamaica smoke weed around me I actually love the smell of it and this plant had the most fresh, pungent smell in the wild. I could smell it from 10 feet away.

On this trip I had my 18 year old son with me so you can imagine what a novelty it was for him. We were fighting to pose for pictures around the plant, in the plant, near the plant, etc. Anyways, yes I totally got a kick out of this hidden treasure “high” up in the hills (no pun intended)!

    now thats quite the experience. I’m a Jamaican and I haven’t seen an actual growing ganja plant in years! I need to get out of Kingston more often. :(

    haha this is funny :) i dont smoke myself, but randomly came across some growing as well in the Blue Mountains :) I loved the hypothesis about some seeds falling into the ground… every Jamaican I meet tells me that same hypothesis about the plants/trees that grow in their yard… fertile land, nature working at its best!

    Hi Lauren, these pics were taken at Rafjam guest house up in the Blue Mountains near Kingston. It was way back in 2010 so I’m not sure if it still exists or not. You can contact them to find out.
