Afghan Kush roots trace back to the Hindu Kush mountain range near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. It has been perfected over centuries, making it the ultimate source for hash such as charas and the sticky black Afghani hash. White Label Seed Company, a Sensi Seeds partner from the Netherlands, made its seeds available for everyone to grow. The buds of Afghan develop into massive, blunt-topped nuggets full of resin and coming in big yields. Revered for its heavy resin content and powerfully sedating effects, it a top choice for anyone looking to relax after a long day.
Afghan Kush has a name that spread like wildfire through the cannabis community. For pure Indica landrace strains, no plant is as famous or infamous as Afghan Kush. Those who just want to chill out snacking while their favorite music plays, slowly falling asleep to the strain’s influence, become Afghan Kush regulars after one toke. Growers love how hardy it is and users love how much CBD it retains. For long-lasting body-based effects, this strain is a keeper.
Growers love how sturdy the plant has become after generations of hardship. Even in adverse temperature conditions, Kush thrives with almost no expertise. Even still, a little skill can go a long way to maximize the plant’s yield! Tender trimming can certainly encourage the branches to reach their full potential.
It has a solid 21% THC average but its effects excel beyond that due to the plant’s ability to retain cannabinoids during extraction. With a CBD level of 6%, including 1% CBN, Afghan Kush can deliver medicinal value in a great-tasting package.
The aroma recalls mango and tropical oranges mixed with an earthy funk. Pine, herbal fragrances fill your garden (or house) with the scent of Afghan Kush. The taste isn’t nearly as strong as some other strains. Users describe it as mild, even bland, with a whisper of fruit on the exhale. For those with sensitive palettes that don’t enjoy living on the funky side of the tracks in cannabis town, Afghan Kush will go easy on them.
