Afghan Kush is a notorious landrace strain that has roots in the Hindu Kush mountain ranges, specifically on the border of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. This powerhouse of an indica that we have all come to know and love in Canada is a result of hundreds of years of perseverance by the original phenotype which constantly evolved and developed traits such as abnormally higher THC concentrations and cold resistance to help survive the rough climates of the region. Many breeders attribute Afghan Kush as one of the Godfathers of most modern indica strains, acting as the genetic “backbone” responsible for lots of the relaxing effects found in typical indica flowers. This heavy-hitting indica is most cherished for its’ resinous buds and high THC levels, which tends to average out around 18%, making it one of the choice strains by locals in the Hindu Kush mountain regions for hash such as Charas and Afghani Hash. There should be no surprise that the substantial THC yield of Afghan Kush correlates to the extremely powerful, relaxing and sedating high. An excellent choice for relaxing after work, users report the high as beginning with a very cheery and euphoric buzz that is accompanied by laughter and hunger which then slowly transitions into a dream-like, relaxed state. One of the most peculiar attributes of Afghan Hash specifically, are its’ rare, distinct aroma and flavour profile. The strain is known for its’ earthier base notes and undertones of a pungent hash, dank gas/fuel and hints of fresh pine.
