Afghani Cannabis is one of the original pure Indica strains that are native to the mountains of Afghanistan. It is prized for its sturdy genetics and high potency. This is one of the oldest strains and that has been perfected over the centuries by both natural selection and human breeding. The Afghani strain reached the shores of North America after its cultivation in Afghanistan banned the production of cannabis under pressure from the Nixon administration. The two popular stains Northern Lights and Blueberry owe significant parts of their composition to the afghan seeds strain. Both are Cannabis Cup winners. Afghan weed can sometimes be hard to come by as it is considered a building block strain. It has THC levels between 15 and 20% and CBD levels of 0.6%.
Afghani buds are usually pale to medium green. They have a significant quality of orange hairs and a thick coating of trichomes as a result of which and be very tacky to the touch. Afghan weed is famous for its pungent smell. It has a skunky smell with traces of diesel-like odor as well. Light citrus smell is also one of the common smells associated with Afghani marijuana. When it is ground or broken open the earthy notes are intensified and when ignited and smoked, like many Indicas, it can be harsh and thick, lingering in the back of the throat and inducing coughing.
The deep body high and the strong sense of relaxation -which is often associated with pure Indicas - is the strongest effect felt by recreational users. Amongst some users, an enhanced sense of appetite is also reported. Because of these effects, it is best suited for nighttime consumption as a result of its couch lock and sleepiness effects.
It is recommended that users should surround themselves in a soothing and familiar environment before consumption.
The mellow sense of euphoria is a strong means to treat many forms of anxiety and PTSD. Also, the narcotic body effect can assist in the reduction of chronic pain. Finally, the treatment of acute insomnia is well suited for this strain.
