Afghan Kush Strain
Afghan Kush is a powerful indica strain that hails from the infamous Hindu Kush mountain region. Though two different seed banks claim that they first curated the strain, Afghan Kush varieties have a distinct hash flavor and resinous appearance. The potent strain can reach 22% THC and produce up to 600 grams per plant.
World of Seeds claims that the variety comes from the northern Afghanistan portion of the Hindu Kush mountain range. World of Seeds' variety of Afghan Kush comes from the valleys of the Amu Darya River, which borders Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Due to the crowded, natural growing processes of the strain, Afghan Kush has been inbred and fine tuned in the wild. The seed bank claims Afghan Kush is a 100%, pure indica strain. World of Seeds' strain clocks in around 22% THC for flower while butane hash oil (BHO) varieties stay around 20% THC.
Sensi Seeds, under the grower's White Label Seeds, also offers regular, non-feminized seeds of Afghan Kush. The White Label version of the strain is slightly less heavy and has a 90% indica, 10% sativa genetic breakdown. The ?original ?AK'? is known for its sticky hashish qualities and large yields. Afghan Kush plants should produce larger, dense buds with broad-bladed leaves and a darker green coloring. Nugs are famously coated in resin.
Despite the small differences in World of Seeds and Sensi Seeds products, Afghan Kush strains should influence the same type of medicinal high. The strain has heavy analgesic, or pain-relieving, properties. Afghan Kush is also highly sedative and frequently used by those dealing with chronic or severe pain, insomnia, and fatigue. Due to the strain's highly indica nature and effects, it's recommended to smoke Afghan Kush in the evenings or before bed. First-hand reports also note that the strain can inspire a sense of happiness and an appetite. Those coping with eating disorders or stomach issues often find that Afghan Kush can positively influence an appetite.
Afghan Kush is also used by medical patients to treat stress, depression, headaches, and anxiety. Due to the strain's strong relaxing and mild euphoric qualities, patients coping with physical and mental ailments enjoy the strain.
Afghan Kush seeds should flower within 40 to 55 days. The strain famously can produce larger yields of flower. When grown indoors, Afghan Kush can produce 450 grams per plant; outdoor plants can yield between 500 and 600 grams per plant. Afghan Kush plants are resistant to mold and pests.
