Afghan Strain Origins
The Afghan indica strain roots can be traced to the area near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border known as the Hindu Kush mountain range.
Derived from the landrace parent strain known as Afghani, it’s native to both Pakistan and the mountains of Afghanistan. It’s traditionally cultivated to produce a potent hash.
Over centuries, this strain has been developed, redeveloped and perfected to create one of the most relaxing strains on the market. It’s the ultimate source for sticky black Afghani hash, charas, and other hashish. Afghan kush buds develop into huge flowers, with really nice nuggets filled with powerful resin.

This strain is typically easy to grow, even for beginners. That’s because the seeds of Afghan strains take on characteristics of strong, wild plants. This makes them more resilient, so they’re able to resist nature’s hazardous elements. The Afghan strain is known for its ability to adapt to changing environments.
