Afghan Kush

Strain Story

Grown in the Hindu-Kush mountains of Afghanistan for centuries, this Afghani Kush subset of the Indica family tree hearkens back to the purest of Indicas.  Collected and made available in seed form primarily by Sensi Seeds in Amsterdam.  This variety was traditionally used in hashish production, but is also very valuable as flowers, with its large, resinous and gooey buds.


Afghanistan, from the Hindu-Kush mountains


From the land of hash-making varieties of cannabis, this Afghan Kush is one of the most resinous varieties on Earth, known for producing incredible “charas” and Afghani black hashish.  The plant shows a very strong traditional Indica structure, with large, wide, dark green leaves and thick, blunt-topped nugs.


Earthy, hashy and slightly sweet, sometimes with notes of Pinesol.


Much like the smell, it sometimes has sweet hash notes, similar to the fragrant charas that is produced from this strain.


Moderate potency Indica effects package –heavy on the body relaxation and pain relief thanks to its resin content.
