Afghani is a classic Indica marijuana strain. Expect a soothing and relaxed body high, mixed with traditional earthy Kush flavors. Turn to this old favorite for a euphoric and drowsy high.

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 Experience


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 of many popular strains, it's not as heavily sedated as more modern interpretations. Rather, it is dreamy and drowsy without knocking marijuana enthusiasts 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.

 

Traits of Afghani and Afghani Seeds


When properly cured, this strain’s buds present slightly pale green leaves with a nice knotting of orange pistils. A heavy layer of trichomes makes for some very sticky weed.

Marijuana connoisseurs will know all too well the aromas of Kush. Afghani mixes in a diesel scent, as well as notes of citrus and skunk, making for some pungent cannabis.

When busted up, that famous earthy kush scent intensifies. These trademark kush flavors continue into the smoke, which can be quite harsh, as can many Indicas. Even experienced marijuana consumers can expect some coughing with this strain.

 

Medical Benefits of Afghani


A strain that has spawned so many medicinal marijuana favorites. It’s potency and range of medical applications have let its popularity endure for decades in the therapeutic cannabis community.

  • 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
