This amazing hash plant is covered in trichomes. Hindu Kush is a pure indica that provides a classic heavy-body effect while knocking out pain and easing muscle tension.

Hindu Kush is as indica as it gets. This pure strain is from the Kush mountain region, which spans 500 miles between Afghanistan and Pakistan. A great hash strain, Hindu Kush produces plenty of kief. It is often used to make charas and black hashes. Naturally potent, this strain often has THC content that reaches 20%. This strain is best for nighttime use. A powerful sedative, Hindu Kush is perfect for those who struggle to get to sleep. While this strain produces a delightful mental euphoria, the effects are very physical overall. Recreational consumers may like this strain as a nightcap or a deep relaxation aid. Medical consumers tend to enjoy this strain for its potent appetite stimulating and pain relief properties. Stomach pains and gastrointestinal issues melt away. A deep body high will ease locked, stiff muscles and make you feel like you can move again. Though, with the couch-locking effects of this strain, you may not have much get-up-and-go.

Growing Tips

If you want to grow this strain outdoors, it's best if you live in a warmer climate. Afghan Kush thrives in latitudes below 42°N. While this plant is usually short, it can gain some height outside. Growers concerned about this should remove the primary cola early on. For growers in cooler climates, you'll want to take this strain indoors. This indica tends to create very uniform seedlings, making this a good choice for breeders looking to add some indica into a new mix. Hindu Kush also has good nodal spacing, allowing for plenty of air flow. This also makes pruning and shaping a little easier.
