About Afgooey

Afgooey (sometimes known as Afgoo) is an indica-dominant hybrid that relies on potent landrace genetics to deliver strong, lasting sedation. As its name implies, this strain is descended from an Afghani indica landrace that has been crossed with flavorful Maui Haze. A staple strain in its own right, Afgooey has a rich and earthy flavor profile to complement its sleepy, weighty vibes. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has found samples of Afgooey to have between 14% and 28% THC composition. In 2018 Emerald Cannabis Worx LLC contacted Wikileaf with a report of their lab testing results by Green Leaf Labs. The report boasted a whopping 30.10% Total THC for their variant of Afgooey.

Afgooey is marked by small to medium buds that adhere in the dense and solid bud structure that is often associated with indica varieties. These flowers range in shape from almost spherical to elongated and cylindrical. The tightly-coiled leaves are a bright shade of spring green and are threaded through with rust-colored hairs (which are actually pistils, intended to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants). The “goo” in Afgooey’s name refers to its copious amounts of resin, which ooze out of a blanket of trichomes.

Parent strain Afghani reveals itself in Afgooey’s complex aroma. When properly cured, buds of Afgooey reek of damp earth and wood. Some faintly skunky notes also lurk underneath to lend some pungency. Bringing up or grinding these sticky buds yields a hint of spice and pepper, likely passed on from the Haze in this strain’s genetics. Given its hashy bouquet, Afgooey burns with a surprisingly smooth smoke that tastes of sweet pine on the exhale.

Unlike many indicas, Afgooey’s high hits quickly, conferring a warmth that begins in the face and spreads down through the neck and core. As smoker’s limbs begin to feel weighty, their anxiety dissipates and the outside world begins to recede into the background. Rather than triggering cerebral, analytical thinking, though, Afgooey puts users in a dreamy mindset that slowly blossoms into euphoria. In moderate doses, this sedative strain won’t necessarily pin users down with couch-lock, leaving them free to perform mundane tasks or errands. Because this strain is not well-suited to deep mental focus, any more complicated duties should be executed before toking. If dosage is increased, Afgooey’s high may tip over into physical immobilization and may even lull smokers into a deep, restful sleep. This strain’s high is said to be long-lasting, even for experienced cannabis consumers. Finally, because of its low-key character, Afgooey is best enjoyed during the evening or nighttime when its decline into sedation can be fully savored.

This strain can have wide-ranging application for medical cannabis patients as well. Afgooey’s mood-altering effects can provide temporary relief from the troubling symptoms of stress, anxiety, and even PTSD. Physiologically speaking, its almost narcotic properties may numb pain, whether temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. Anti-inflammatory can soothe more everyday irritations like headaches or nausea. Finally, as noted, Afgooey may counteract entrenched cases of insomnia. Because it is unlikely to bring about paranoid, recursive thinking, this strain is a good choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.

Until recently, this legendary strain could only be grown as a clone, from clippings taken from existing plants. Several online retailers now sell seeds of Afgooey. Once obtained, the strain can be grown indoors or outdoors. Although it fares best in semi-humid climates with daytime temperatures in the 70 to 80 degree Fahrenheit range, Afgooey’s hardy landrace roots make it somewhat resistant to adverse growing conditions like temperature variations. Plants grow short and bushy, with strong lateral branching. Growers should regularly “top” their crops by trimming away any broad fan leaves that can prevent light and air from reaching low-growing flowering nodes. Afgooey flowers within 8 weeks when grown indoors. Growers should be sure to preserve the potency of their harvest through proper curing. This process involves first hanging up the trimmed buds to dry out for one week in conditions of 50% humidity; and then sealing the dried flowers in airtight containers in conditions of 60-65% humidity.

Certainly a strain to savor as you kick back after a long day, Afgooey lives up to its reputation as a classic indica. This strain’s high resin output also makes it a great choice for the production of hash or other THC concentrates.

This is a nice Indica that comes in quick, even when vaped, with a solid body stone and good hyperfocus. A sweet little evening bud for creative downtime, stargazing, or a warm bath. Would also be excellent in PM edibles! Relieved muscle tension in my neck and back, and I’m working holiday retail, so that says something. I’m not going to lie, the taste is earthy, but it’s not bad- I like it, there’s pine here, it’s a super dank and funky smoke so you’re not getting any mango, strawberry, or creams- this is a winter evening snuggle weed, not the stuff I smoke in July on the beach. It’s delightful.

I've been digging Afgooey lately. It gives a great body high, but doesn't give you couch-lock like most Indicas!

Smoking some Afgooey Shatter now. Bought a gram Tuesday at Beta in Brookline. Wish I could get some of this in flower. Nice relaxing high. Excellent with my pain anxiety insomnia etc. Love it just wish they had it in bud...
