Afghan Kush is one of the most legendary cannabis strains globally, coming from its original homeland near the Afghanistan border. This Indica-dominant strain has genetics from parent strains Afghani. White Label Seed Company, a Sensi Seeds partner from the Netherlands, made their seeds available for everyone to grow.
Medical marijuana patients reported Afghan Kush to alleviate pain and to treat insomnia. This strain is often used as a painkiller to relieve arthritis. The effects of this strain are powerful but no more potent than that of other Kush strains. It leaves feelings of deep relaxation, happiness, and euphoria.
The adverse effects reported include dry mouth, dizziness, and paranoia. The THC content of Afghan Kush strains is high, at up to 16-20%. The buds of this strain also have a potent aroma that's reminiscent of pine and roses. The flower of this strain has a unique, exotic look to it. It looks like a mix between the blunt-nosed Indica Afghani and the bushy-looking Sativa Haze strain.
Afghan Kush is available as both feminized seeds and auto-flowering genetics, making for an easy grow with great yields. The strain can thrive in both indoor and outdoor settings. It grows outdoors during spring and summer, while it can thrive in indoor settings as well. Flowering time takes 50-60 days.
