Afghani Hash Plant
About Afghani Hash Plant
Afghani Hash Plant is appropriately a cross between Afghani and Hash Plant strains, meaning the Indica heritage is strong with this one. Anyone curious about what Indica landrace strains taste like should be all over this nearly pure spicy hash masterclass in Afghani breeding history. The strain is a blast from the 70s when Afghan landrace resin was all the rage, though it still has its own twists on the decades-old formula.

The strain known as Afghani Hash Plant began in Northern Afghanistan in an area known as Mazar-i-Sharif. Breeders who grew traditional hash there eventually cultivated the seeds that would take the world by storm as this strain.
The buds of this plant are shaped like bright green spades, growing from a comparatively short growing structure. The stocky growing pattern of the Afghani Hash Plant strain is typical of pure Indicas (or near pure) and so are this strain’s super dense buds and heavy trichome production, which makes it ideal for concentrate makers. The pistils are yellow in color amid a pattern of fat white trichomes. The average crop yields very well, with a potential of 700g per square meter after the 50 to 60-day flowering time.
The flavor of Afghani Hash Plant is a major reason the strain is popular. With spicy hash and flavors of pine on the inhale, the strain immediately begins to build in relaxing effects. On the exhale, the strain is floral and earthy, with an aroma that suits it – herbs, soil, hash, spice, sandalwood, and even a hint of citrus. The strain lingers in the air for quite a while, in a pleasant way.
The strain’s high is relaxing and unfocusing. Afghani Hash Plant is not for people that want to get work done. It settles the mind into a classic heady high, a pure stoned feeling that made the entire 70s infamous. The strain has a wide THC potential of 10-21%, but this is mostly because the strain has been around so long that there are different cultivars available all over the place.
As you begin to feel deeply relaxed and totally out of it, you’ll be experiencing the state that made Afghani Hash Plant a household name and a progenitor of a lot of modern heavy hitters. Cerebral, hunger-inducing, and relaxing, the strain has every reason to be enjoying its fame. The fact that it’s so easy to grow is just a bonus.
