Afghan Kush (Afkush)Strain Profile

Afghan Kush

Posted on: September 23rd 2009


Grown in the Hindu-Kush mountains of Afghanistan for centuries, this Afghani Kush subset of the Indica family tree hearkens back to the purest of Indicas.  Collected and made available in seed form primarily by Sensi Seeds in Amsterdam.  This variety was traditionally used in hashish production, but is also very valuable as flowers, with its large, resinous and gooey buds.


Earthy, hashy and slightly sweet, sometimes with notes of Pinesol.


Moderate potency Indica effects package –heavy on the body relaxation and pain relief thanks to its resin content.

Grow Medium

Grows with special vigor when started from clone rather than seed — growers who start from seed will see a large growth spurt as the plant enters into flower, thanks to the hearty Afghan vigor present.  Grows well in all mediums and even in harsh outdoor conditions thanks to its rugged lineage.
