About this Hybrid Strain
This cannabis plant, with roots stretching back to Central Asia, releases a peppery, earthy fragrance combined with sage. The smoke exhibits the herbal undertones recognized in the scent, making this a rather tasty indica-hybrid.
This strain tends to range between 15-20% THC.
Some consumers say Mazar works well for treating chronic pain, Alzheimer’s, mood disorders, depression, ADHD, or day-to-day stress. The body high can lead to couch-lock, and overall its effects cause lethargy and sleepiness.
Common side effects include cottonmouth and red eyes. Some users may experience paranoia or lightheadedness in higher doses.
For growers, Mazar does best indoors, and can take about 8 to 9 weeks to flower.
This cultivar was bred by Dutch Passion. The original Mazar was an inbred version of an Afghani landrace known as “Afghan Skunk,” but the genetics of the original proved to be unstable. Today’s version of Mazar crossed the original Skunk #1, which made it sturdier and led to a more pleasant tasting experience.
