About Afghan Kush

Afghan Kush, an almost 100% Indica strain is naturally grown in the Hindu Kush mountain range. The strain has a very earthy, almost "hash-like" scent with a hint of Pinesol-like aroma. When smoked, it has a sweet hash taste similar to its smell. Buds of this strain are very condensed and covered in a fair amount of trichomes (the THC making glands or crystals). The plant has the familiar broad leaves of other Indicas.

Because this strain is mostly Indica, it affects the body much more than the mind. This results in a heavy feeling of laziness or sleepiness. It is also described as a very euphoric strain that causes users to feel very happy. Many users report feeling hungry after ingesting it. Several users have expressed caution regarding its intake. Receiving more than a few hits can result in an overwhelming feeling of lethargy, making it difficult to move. The strain's negative effects include the usual dry mouth and eyes, occasional paranoia, and dizziness. A few people reported having headaches after using Afghan Kush.

Due to the heavy Indica effects, it is most often used by insomniacs as a night time medication. It is also used to help people cope with stress and anxiety. People with eating disorders, such as anorexia, use it because of its effect on appetite. Thanks to its heavy body high, it is an ideal strain for pain relief, bringing relaxation to users with chronic pain.

Traditionally, the strain was harvested  to produce a very potent hashish - the quality the strain retained. Due to the sturdy nature of this wild strain, it is recommended for amateur growers. Afghan Kush's unusually high THC content can make up for the lower yields beginners might harvest. It is fairly resistant to disease and molds (another big plus for beginners). Because of its natural hardiness, Afghan Kush can be grown both indoors and out. The strain flowers for seven to eight weeks and is ready for harvest in October when grown outside. Being an Indica, short Afghan Kush plants grow wide, filling out rather than up. A well-grown plant can yield 400 grams per square meter inside or between 500 to 600 grams outside.

Woah I don't usually partake because I'm a teacher but I got MoMos for 4/20 made with Afghan Kush and holy crap! I went to Wal-Mart to roam around and when I got home I was having rolling organisms just sitting there in the car. The body high was so freaking intense but so good. I felt so relaxed it was heaven.
