An original “landrace” strain native to the mountains of Afghanistan, got its name from its home country, where it grows in the Hindu Kush Mountains. Afghani is a pure indica loved for its potency and strong genetics. Perfected and balanced over time by both natural selection and human cultivation, this strain was likely brought to the west before Afghanistan banned cannabis production in 1973 under pressure from the Nixon administration.
Afghani may be one of the most popular marijuana strains the world has ever seen. Though this strain isn’t as powerful as its long history suggests (THC levels at about 17-20%), this strain is certainly strong enough to deliver a deep, sedated body high with a strong shot of euphoria. CBD levels are low, considerably less than 1%.
Notorious for being one of the most resinous varieties of cannabis on Earth, Afghani weed is, in many ways, from another planet. In fact, it is so valued for its potency that it is the strain most commonly used for producing the outstanding Afghan Black Hash.
