Afghan Kush has roots that trace back to the Hindu Kush mountain range near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. There its genotype 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 the seeds of this strain available for everyone to grow. The buds of this strain develop into massive, blunt-topped nuggets full of resin; pure indica goodness with a heavy yield. Revered for its heavy resin content and powerfully sedating effects, Afghan Kush is a top choice for anyone looking to relax after a long day.
Due to the heavy Indica effects, it is most often used by insomniacs as a night time medication. It is also used to help people cope with stress and anxiety. People with eating disorders, such as anorexia, use it because of its effect on appetite. Thanks to its heavy body high, it is an ideal strain for pain relief, bringing relaxation to users with chronic pain.
Traditionally, the strain was harvested to produce a very potent hashish – the quality the strain retained. Due to the sturdy nature of this wild strain, it is recommended for amateur growers. Afghan Kush’s unusually high THC content can make up for the lower yields beginners might harvest. It is fairly resistant to disease and molds (another big plus for beginners). Because of its natural hardiness, Afghan Kush can be grown both indoors and out. The strain flowers for seven to eight weeks and is ready for harvest in October when grown outside. Being an Indica, short Afghan Kush plants grow wide, filling out rather than up. A well-grown plant can yield 400 grams per square meter inside or between 500 to 600 grams outside.
