This pure indica strain comes from the mountainous area of the Hindu Kush in Northern Afghanistan. It grows in the wild in the valleys of the Armu Darya River, close to the border with Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. It is very stable strain which is thought to be the result of successive crosses between wild Kush varieties.
Afghani has a powerful smell similar to the best Afghani hashish. It is also considered a good medicinal strain.
Cured Afghani buds are pale to medium green with a preponderance of orange hairs and a thick coating of trichomes. They are very resinous and tacky to the touch. This is a pungent strain: Afghani nugs have a skunky, diesel-like odor with notes of citrus. The earthy notes are intensified when buds are ground or broken open. As with many indicas, smoke is harsh and thick and can hang in the back of the throat, inducing coughing from unfiltered methods.
Because it’s a pure indica, recreational users of Afghani can expect a deep body high and a general pervasive relaxation. Some users report appetite stimulation as well. Plan on nighttime consumption, as this strain tends towards heavy couchlock and sleepiness.
Medicinal effects flow from these same sedative properties. Afghani’s mellow euphoria is useful in the treatment of anxiety and PTSD. The almost narcotic bodily effects can also be used to relieve chronic pain. Above all, this strain is prized for its ability to relieve insomnia and promote deep sleep.
Afghani’s high comes on like a wave, gradually rolling over you and easing you into a weighty calm. As users peak, they may experience greater bodily awareness alongside feelings of heavy relaxation. Because this strain does less to promote activity and mobility, it can be beneficial to make sure your surroundings are soothing and familiar before consuming.
Afghani is a convenient indoor grow, with its short, bushy stalks ranging between 2 and 4 feet high. Plants can produce a rapid high yield – flowering typically begins around week 8, with a full harvest possible at the 4 month mark. Although the strain is endemic to a mountainous Central Asian climate, it can be grown outdoors along similar latitudes. Look for dense, conical colas as the plants mature.
