Afghani may be one of the most popular marijuana strains the world has ever seen. Though this strain isn’t as powerful as its long history suggests (THC levels at about 17-20%%), this strain is certainly strong enough to deliver a deep, sedated body high with a strong shot of euphoria. CBD levels are low, considerably less than 1%. A near-pure indica (sativa/indica ratio of 5:95), this strain was named got its name from its home country, where it grows in the Hindu Kush Mountains. This is close to the mountainous region where humans first tamed wild cannabis thousands of years ago. Afghani, also known as Afghan Kush, is a source of countless hybrid strains around the world, many of them very popular. Best used to treat chronic pain and anxiety, this strain is also good for insomnia due to its heavy indica genes. Afghani has a pungent, earthy smell and taste, with a sweet flavor. The high is deeply relaxed, with strong euphoria and a mood boost. It’s best used late at night, since it can easily induce sleep. Dry mouth is a distinct possibility, as are dry eyes, headache, and dizziness. Afghani is most popular on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in British Columbia.
Toke Club’s Take: A nice, almost purely indica strain. Mostly darker green nugs with hints of purple that has a nice trichome sparkle throughout the bag. Quite firm density buds that are trimmed quite tight in appearance, some mild foxtailing, with minimal random leaves hanging out. Mostly medium to medium large sized consistency buds throughout the bags, few smaller and large pieces tossed in. Trim is good with a few hand cropped leaves sticking out. Medium fragrant nose, typical afghani nose, earthy, woody and slight gassy undertones. Great mid to later day type of smoke, leaving users with a medium burnout. Burn is nice and consistent grey-white after light, all around winner in trips category!
