Landrace
This landrace strain has parented many modern indica hybrids. Afghani is worth a try for every cannabis enthusiast. An indica in it's truest form, expect a full-bodied sense of relaxation.

Afghani is a landrace indica that has become a parent to many modern indica hybrids. This stout plant hails from the Hindu Kush mountains and has since spread around the world. Known for its sweet pungent aroma and heavy body high, you'll recognize the Afghani influence in strains like LA Confidential, Amnesia Haze, and Northern Lights.

As a true indica, the high this strain provides is intensely physical. The THC content of this strain may not get very high (17%), but this strain promotes a deep, heavy-bodied relaxation. Expect your eyes to grow heavy, and about 30 minutes in you might find yourself ready for a nap.

Though Afghani is the backbone to many popular strains, it's not as heavily sedated as more modern interpretations. Rather, it is dreamy and drowsy without knocking you out. It does, however, have strong appetite-stimulating effects. If you're hoping to avoid the munchies, you're better off with a different flower.

Medical patients tend to like this strain for bodily pain, muscle tension, and stress. Anyone with sleep problems will also appreciate this strain. It may not be the most sedative bud out there, but you'll have an easy time dosing off. Some people use this strain for evening migraine relief.

Growing Tips
