This strain grows in sturdy branches, covered in resinous, huge, condensed buds whose trichomes glisten beneath rusty red hairs and broad leaves. The strain is originally a landrace strain from the Amu Darya River Valley along the border of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Afghan Kush was a wild lady for hundreds of years, flourishing in the harsh natural climates of its homeland and refining itself through many generations of evolution.

The aroma recalls mango and tropical oranges mixed with earthy funk. Pine, herbal fragrances fill your garden (or house) with the scent of Afghan Kush. The taste isnโ€™t nearly as strong as some other strains. Users describe it as mild, even bland, with a whisper of fruit on the exhale. For those with sensitive palettes that donโ€™t enjoy living on the funky side of the tracks in cannabis town, Afghan Kush will go easy on them.

Effects

Afghan Kush has a solid 21% THC average but its effects excel beyond that due to the plant's ability to retain cannabinoids during extraction. With a CBD level of 6%, including 1% CBN, Afghan Kush can deliver medicinal value in a great-tasting package.

Its effects promote a do-nothing attitude that pairs well with relaxation. This is a great strain for movie lovers, sleepers, and snackers. If you want to be lazy and fall asleep from the lack of effort, this strain can make you happy, pain-free, and get rid of depression in the process. Traumatic stress and migraines can also be treated with a dose of Afghan Kush, a little mind-alleviating relief from the Hindu Kush mountains on the other side of the world.

Growing

Natural selection brought us the perfect Afghan Kush, the product we enjoy today from White Label Seed Company, a Sensi Seed partner, the Netherlands-based growers that made Afghan available to everyone.

Growers love how sturdy the plant has become after generations of hardship. Even in adverse temperature conditions, Afghan Kush thrives with almost no expertise. Even still, a little skill can go a long way to maximize the plantโ€™s yield! Tender pruning can certainly encourage the branches to reach their full potential.

Love this! I've always suffered insomnia. This puts me to sleep in minutes. Totally recommend for my fellow insomniacs.

This strain does the trick for my chronic back pain and fibromyalgia and as a result I have been able to completely remove opioids from my daily regimen. It also helps with my anxeity, depression, PTSD and insomnia. AK is the first strain I was prescribed that was able to get my debilitating back pain and sciatica to a tolerable level. I don't recommend this strain to those new to cannabis as it packs a wallop and although I haven't had any instances of paranoia an inexperienced user could have a rough ride.

This is the perfect strain for muscle fatigue or soreness, anxiety. I'm not a doctor. This is not medical advice.
