This Indica-dominant strain is very sought-after for hybridization because of its favorable traits like short flowering time, short stature, high yields and general resistance. But that’s what you’d expect from a plant originating from Afghanistan. This tough marihuana strain was brought to the Netherlands for indoor growing, and beside its use for hybridization, it’s also a very good plant for those who are new to growing. That is, if they can find the seeds for it, as they’re not very abundant on the market.
Description & InformationThe most noticeable thing about an Afghan cannabis plant is that it looks almost bushy. Being a 95% Indica marijuana strain, it doesn’t grow too tall, and the fan leaves are wider and rounder than those typically seen on Sativas. Afghan’s flowers are green, rich with white, sticky resin. The strain has a great flower to leaf ratio, making it a good yielder and a marijuana plant worth cultivating. It has a strong odor while growing, and high THC levels.
Review & User HighlightsAfghan’s aroma and taste are commonly described as earthy with sweet undertones. The smoke is not too harsh if the flowers are cured properly before use. Because of the high THC content, the effects can be quite strong. Users often report being couch-locked, with a strong body high, although the effects can be heady as well, with a relaxing, creative, and warm feeling. Afghan is one of those cannabis strains that are best used in the evening, because the calming effects are likely to make you sleepy. It’s also a great plant for people who are looking for pain relief.
Grow Guide and TipsBecause of its genetic heritage, Afghan is a marijuana strain which can survive the most common mistakes people who are new to growing cannabis make. It is rot and mold resistant, which gives it more chances to survive over-watering. It can even come back from using the wrong lights during vegetation. It doesn’t require a lot of nutrients to grow. In fact, using too much nutrients is probably the mistake that will prove the most damaging to the plant, especially the plant grown by the newbies who want the highest possible yields in the shortest time. The one thing that Afghan prefers is being grown on soil, although it can be grown hydroponically as well.
Buy Afghan seeds & Start GrowingFinding Afghan seeds to buy online might be a bit tricky, as it isn’t as popular cannabis strain as the Cup Winners are. Still, here is where you can buy cheap Afghan seeds. Another idea would be to look through marijuana forums, and see where people who grow Afghan bough their seeds.
