Afghan Kush is an indica-dominant strain with a very high THC potency potential (16.0 – 22.0%). It has little to no CBD.
Afghan Kush is a very popular strain because of its high THC percentage. Originating back to the Hindu Kush mountain range near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, this strain has been perfected over the centuries. This strain is frequently used to make the famous sticky black Afghani hash.
This particular strain by Pure Sunfarms is grown in a high-tech greenhouse in British Columbia where the buds are carefully hand-trimmed, dried, and cured. Afghan Kush buds are usually large in size, dense, and sticky. They have moss coloured leaves with specks of purple sticking out from underneath a layer of frosty trichomes. The flavour and smell is a mix between spicy and fruity as it has undertones of both wild strawberries and red peppercorn.
For at home growers, Afghan Kush will flower within seven to eight weeks and is ready for harvest in October when grown outside. Since it is an Indica, this plant will fill-out in width rather than length. It is recommended for amateur growers.
How will it make me feel?
Afghan Kush is recommended to smoke in the evening/nighttime due to its strong relaxation effects. Unless you are planning on watching Netflix all day, you should wait until the sun goes down to smoke this strain. People have described its effects to be relaxing and cause a sense of happiness. It is also said to make you quite tired (useful as a sleep-aid) and to give you the munchies. It effects the body much more than the mind, so if you’re looking to relieve stress, anxiety, or insomnia, this is a great strain to try.
Overall, this is a popular strain used by many cannabis smokers. Its effects are great for stress and insomnia relief, but it can also be used for a fun nighttime high while you watch movies and eat lots and lots (and lots) of popcorn.
