The selection of the seeds of marijuana to grow will depend on many things. Seeds of marijuana, basically, fit in two categories: Indica and Sativa.
Afghan Kush, an almost 100% Indica strain, is naturally grown in the Hindu Kush mountain range. The best Afghan Kush strain has a very earthy, almost “hash-like” scent with a hint of Pinesol-like aroma.
When smoked, it has a sweet hash taste similar to its smell. Buds of this strain are very condensed and covered in a fair amount of trichomes (the THC making glands or crystals). The plant has the familiar broad leaves of other Indicas.
Afghan Kush has an average THC content of 13%-14% with a high of 17%. It has extremely powerful effects on the body, causing the user to feel lazy and/or sleepy. It’s recommended for nighttime use, being effective in relieving aches and pains while inducing a euphoric sensation.
Many reviewers say it’s hard to move after ingestion, as well as giving them the munchies. Those experiencing insomnia give this strain a high rating for its sedative effects.
Mild cases of dizziness and paranoia have been known to accompany this strain as negative side-effects, but only if consumed improperly. If too much is consumed at once, headaches may occur a few hours after the high wears off.
Amateur growers can easily grow Afghan Kush. Even if an inexperienced grower produces low yields, the potency of the buds will make up for lost accumulation.
