Originally this strain was imported from Afghanistan and selectively bred in Holland for indoor cultivation. Afghan has a strong acrid aroma. Greasy resin glands extend to the fat shade leaves. The smoke is heavy with a strong almost numbing buzz if raised and cured properly. This plant has a high flower-to-leaf ratio and good yield. Afghan is one of the original genetic lines used in many popular modern-day hybrids.
By inbreeding her we were able to improve stability and to cut down the height. To make her more suitable for indoor growing. Afghan is highly tolerant to irrigation and fertilization. Seeds will usually rise above ground within 3 to 4 days. There is little to no variation between individual phenostypes, especially when it comes to yield. The main buds are stretched, thick and solid. Side buds are also solid, but small and few in numbers. Afghan has a good flower to leaf ratio. She has very few leaves, but lots of calyxes covered in trichomes. She is therefore easy to trim.
Flavor and Effect
When grown to fruition she smells like grade quality Afghani hashish. Afghan has a sweet, fruity, and earthy flavor. And her high has a typical narcotic, Indica buzz. Medicinal value: nausea, insomnia, and spasms.
