Hindu Kush is a real favorite among marijuana consumers the world over, so popular that this strain even makes an appearance in the game Hempire. 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 Experience


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.

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.

 

Traits of Hindu Kush and Hindu Kush Seeds


Marijuana fans will recognize the complex kush aromas of this strain immediately. A complex web of spice, pine, earth and sandalwood, it is both a sweet and musky cannabis smell. Hindu Kush has a herbal, thick flavor that some less experienced marijuana consumers may find harsh and cough-inducing. Others will love the incense-like tones that have made the Kush one of the most popular marijuana families in the world.

This Indica tends to create very uniform seedlings, making this a good choice for breeders looking to add some Indica into a new mix. This strain also has good nodal spacing, allowing for plenty of airflow. This also makes pruning and shaping a little easier.

 

Medical Benefits of Hindu Kush


Like many others in the Kush family, this strain has uses applicable to a number of medical marijuana patients.

  • Medical consumers tend to enjoy this strain for its potent appetite stimulating and pain relief properties

  • Stomach pains and gastrointestinal issues melt away

  • Medical marijuana patients have also been known to use this strain to relieve stress, anxiety, MS, ADD/ADHD and other more serious ailments.


In large doses, this strain can induce sleep, but some cannabis consumers may experience paranoia and anxiety — weed enthusiasts sensitive to these symptoms may wish to proceed with caution.

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. Indoor growers will be pleased, as Hindu Kush’s flowering time can be as little as 45 days, while outdoor growers can harvest in late September.
