The extremely popular and potent cannabis strain, Afghani, is an indica that’s been cross-bred with a plethora of other strains. It’s named after its geographic origins, blossoming in Afghanistan within the Hindu Kush Mountains. It bears a sweet, earthy aroma that tastes similar – some claiming it to have lemony undertones. Afghani buds are extremely dense and coated in a thick layer of trichomes.
Afghani is known as a landrace strain, being first cultivated by humans from the wild cannabis-sativa plants within the Afghani region.
Its THC content averages at 14% but have known to reach 17%. The high of this strain mostly affects the body, not the mind, though it will elevate happiness within the consumer due to its relaxing indica effects. If consumed properly, it will cause an increase in appetite so expect the munchies, and a head-to-toe body euphoria that brings relief to many that claim victim to chronic pain.
If too much is consumed at once, this strain will make it difficult to move, couch-locking the consumer and more than likely inducing a deep sleep. This strain is often a wonderful choice to help with insomnia.
Afghani was originally cultivated to produce hashish, which is popular in its country of origin.
