About Afghan Kush
Afghan Kush, an almost 100% Indica strain is naturally grown in the Hindu Kush mountain range. The strain has a very earthy, almost “hash-like” scent with a hint of Pinesol-like aroma. When smoked, it has a sweet hash taste similar to its smell. Buds of this strain are very condensed and covered in a fair amount of trichomes (the THC making glands or crystals). The plant has the familiar broad leaves of other Indicas.

This is classified as easy-to-grow marijuana strain and is known for its stereotypical body effects that are typical to indica strains. These effects will last up to 2 to 3 hours. Traditionally, this particular strain will be harvested for giving out higher counts of hashish. The plant will be sturdy with light colored nugs and resinous trichomes. The buds are covered with numerous red or dark orange colored hairs. While Afghan Kush is known for its high THC levels (of all cannabinoids), the CBD levels are also high and has good medicinal values.
