About Afghan Haze
With a hybrid variability that changes depending on growing techniques, Afghan Haze is a strain that’s revered in the medical community. The brainchild of former Sensi breeder Nevil Schoenmaker and Mr. Nice Seed’s Shantibaba, it’s created by crossing Afghan and Haze. In most cases, it’s found as a 60/40 sativa-dominant strain and is great for more experienced smokers.
Afghan Haze brings a hefty amount of THC to the table, with batches testing as high as 21%. A potent smell permeates each nug, with a pleasant earthy and nutty tone that transitions to a more skunky scent while smoking. Its flavor is somewhat similar, coming off a bit sweeter and reminding some of the flavor of tea. Buds of Afghan Haze are quite dense with a spattering of red tones, bright pistils, and packed on amber toned trichomes.
This strain is one that might be better for nighttime use, although some prefer it during the day for its mind clearing properties. The high from Afghan Haze will leave you feeling focused and entirely functional without a trace of worry, anxiety, or paranoia. Soon after, your body will start to feel relaxed and in many cases quite sleepy. During this sedating time, you might end up with a case of the giggles, proving this to be a good choice for social activities that don’t require much energy.
Patients who use marijuana for medicinal purposes might pick Afghan Haze as their number one strain because of how calming it is throughout the entire body. Any sense of headaches, body pain, or stress will be wiped away with almost a moment’s notice, and you’ll be left with a sense of peace and tranquility. Individuals who struggle with their appetite can find relief with Afghan Haze, and it can be a great choice before bed as well.
Cultivating Afghan Haze is a true test of one’s patience, as it takes 10 weeks of indoor grow time before flowering begins. However, with a little extra attention and TLC, this strain will give you immense amounts of frosty flowers if you’re able to wait long enough. A lot of lighting and water gives this girl everything she needs to thrive.
Whether you’re on the hunt for a recreational high or you need something to take the edge off of pain or depression, Afghan Haze will do the job right. Try this strain when you’re at home with friends, in need of a good night’s sleep, or just want a tasty smoke anytime of the day.
