Afgoo Marijuana Strain
Afgoo is an Indica-dominant Hybrid marijuana strain. This classic member of the Kush family features all of the lineage’s signature flavors and aromas, leaving cannabis consumers feeling relaxed and a little sleepy.
Afgoo, sometimes called “Afgooey,” is an old school California strain. This bud has been around since the 1980’s and it’s still going strong. While some classic strains are difficult to get your hands on these days, Afgoo is still fairly popular on the West Coast and may even be spotted in an Amsterdam coffee shop or two. It’s a a sleepy and relaxing Indica-dominant Hybrid cross of Maui Haze and Afghani #1. Pick up this chill bud for a lazy evening or weekend.
This 70/30 Indica-dominant hybrid is definitely a nighttime flower. Sedative and heavy-lidded, this bud provides a deep and relaxing body high. Fast-acting, many find that Afgoo kicks in after just a few short minutes. Fortunately for those who need extended relief, the overall effects of this bud are notably long-lasting as well. Patients in pain or in need of some serious relaxation will find relief with this marijuana strain.
While you may find yourself sinking into the couch after a few solid puffs, this flower tends to provide a creative, uplifting experience. Strongly euphoric, Afgoo offers a happy and blissful experience that can turn just about any frown upside down.
Novice consumers might find themselves a little paranoid after a few too many hits. However, the most common complaint with this indica is dry mouth and dry eyes.
Like most high-THC strains, Afgoo is known to increase appetite and distort your sense of time. If you’re hungry enough to put some dinner in the oven, you might want to set a timer.
Traits of Afgoo and Afgoo Seeds
The Afgoo strain is rumored to be a descendant of an Afghani strain and Maui Haze. The Afghani really shines through in this bud. Though this strain is technically a hybrid, it is classified as an indica thanks to high levels of a particular terpene called myrcene.
This plant tends to be fast flowering and heavy yielding, which is great for home growers looking for a productive crop. The THC in Afgoo can also get quite high, possibly even up to 28 percent when grown with expert skill and attention. As such a potent strain, this bud is recommended for those with some cannabis experience.
The aroma of this bud strongly takes after its Afghan heritage. Perhaps thanks to the myrcene, the aromatic base of this bud is a strong earthy musk. Afgoo also has a woody quality, giving it a forest-like scent. A slight sweet skunkiness and a pine-like acidity add the finishing touches to this crystal-coated flower.
When lit, this strain tastes strongly of pine and sweet skunk. Somewhat surprisingly, the smoke is nice and smooth on the inhale, with those sweeter piney flavors really opening up on the exhale.
Previously, this strain was only available via clone. Fortunately, Strain Hunters now offers seeds for sale. These seeds produce nugs that are quite Indica-like in their structure. Densely packed leaves are riddled with deep orange pistils and topped off with copious amounts of resin.
