Afghani is known best as one of the oldest strains on Earth originating in Afghanistan, specifically the Hindu mountains. This area is home to the mountainous region where humans first tamed wild cannabis thousands of years ago. While there are no 'pure' sativa or indica strains anymore, Afghani is nearly identical in genetics to the pure strain of the same name from long ago. Afghani packs quite a punch, very heady and an intense body buzz. It may be too much for some smokers to handle, but its high THC content is ideal for those looking for something a little extra.

Overview of Afghani

Afghani has become one of the most popular strains on the West Coast, British Columbia, and Colorado, reaching nearly legendary status along with strains like Blue Dream and AK47. However, it isn't as potent as one might expect a strain this old to be. Typically, THC levels top out at around 17 percent, and CBD levels generally are less than 1 percent. This strain is very sweet on the tongue and has a very pungent and earthy smell. When selecting your buds, look for flowers that are tightly packed and covered in trichomes. They should be light or medium green in color with orange hairs and frosty.

Potential Effects of Afghani

The percentages may be low, but this strain is powerful enough to deliver a deep, sedated body high and an intense euphoric feeling that brings on a general sense of happiness and well-being. This nearly-pure indica is a parent strain to many hybrid strains around the world, most of which are very popular sleep aids.

Negative Effects of Afghani

It commonly causes dry mouth and eyes but can also cause headaches if not appropriately hydrated. Make sure you have snacks around, too, because you'll want to eat after smoking.

Lineage of Afghani

The original Afghani originated from the Hindu regions and is a child of the classic Hindu Kush cannabis connoisseurs adored.

Growing Afghani

If you're considering adding Afghani to your home medicine garden, you don't need to think twice. This strain is very easy for beginners due to its excellent growth under many different conditions. It produces fat sticky colas which are loaded with THC and are great indoor or outdoor cultivations because they grow outwards instead of upwards.

Keep in mind that because of this, she will need to be trimmed and pruned often to keep her thriving. She also has a very pungent, almost skunky smell, so make sure to take precautions to keep your grow room or greenhouse smell-free.

Where to Find Afghani

Afghani is not always easy to find. States like Colorado and Oregon are most likely to have Afghani on their shelves. However, various Canadian Provinces also have some Afghani rotating around their market.

Check with your local dispensary to see if they have any Afghani on their shelves,
