About Afghan Express
Afghan Express has had ruderalis incorporated into its lineage to give it unique traits that hybrids limited to Sativa and Indica have trouble revealing, such as autoflowering. Don’t worry – we’ll explain it below in case you’re not familiar. It means that this particular lineage is actually 70/20/10, for Indica/Sativa/Ruderalis. And that paves the way for a combination of expedited growth and conveniences, as well as a slow burn of mellow effects that produce a calming, arousing tingle with a sweet pepper and honey flavor. This strain is an odd one.
On the subject of autoflowering, different “autos” give you expedited growing times and shortened harvest periods. Autoflowering strains automatically change from vegetative to flowering stages. This means that you don’t have to regulate light and dark hours for autoflowering strains and can expect to reap a harvest in 10 weeks or less.
Expert growers recommend a big pot for Afghan Express, at least 10 liters, to take on how strong this plant grows indoors. Outdoors, you can expect a 2-meter plant that grows well in the sun and soil. Grow this one in the Springtime to reap the best results.
Afghan Express, named for its aforementioned autoflowering traits by originating in Holland, is a moderate THC package that contains a lot of Indica, a little CBD (1%), and a nice mellow high. It was bred as a cross between Afghan and Lowryder by Positronics Seeds, from which it gets its unique flavor and minty appearance. Its nugs are big, bright, and cloaked in thick hairs and little white trichomes frosted like mint.
That flavor may surprise you. It’s like a blast of sweet honey but with strong undertones of spicy earth, peppery and herbal. You may even detect the faintest whiff of leather, which many users may not be able to place. The aroma is strongly Afghan and hashy with hints of mossy herbs and even a dash of coffee.
Those who can benefit most from Afghan Express likely suffer from mood swings and sleep deprivation. This strain will knock you out after a rising but mellow cerebral effect that climaxes with a lot of happy tingling. This is a strain for being lazy, couch-locked, unfocused, and sleepy. If you suffer from stress, depression, chronic pain, anxiety, headaches, or mood issues, Afghan Express can provide an escape. Expressly.
It can initiate arousal, relaxation, or even a peaceful sleep. Afghan Express can calm you after a stressful workday and provide an interesting flavor combination that makes the journey even more interesting. Growers flock to the strain’s unique lineage to take advantage of its harvest schedule, but users come back for the honey pepper flavor, the moderate, accessible THC levels, and the sense of utter mellowing out.
