Origins, Genetics, History
Afghani Kush is the default landrace strain which is parent to many other varieties of weed. It is a full Indica, 100%. It hails from the Hindu Kush mountains. It gives one the vision of monks using the weed in careful meditative practices or using it as a medicine, rather than that of young people using it recreationally for a short-lived high. It is a weed that is thick with resins in the center, with medium sized branches and leaves reaching out. It is a beautiful plant with flowers and leaves covered in resins. Afghani Kush is a popular strain to breed. It is related to LA Confidential, The Northern Lights weed, and Amnesia Haze, to name just a few.

After smoking it every time I hear the name of this strain the only word that appears in my mind is a NUMB. A total and sudden numb. At first you just wait until it comes into effect and then realize that you're already completely relaxed. All the pain you might be suffering from is gone as well. Actually I notice it becomes harder and harder to find a pure indica with such an effect. So I'll try to capture my general impression of this strain. Buds are massive and long with dark green veins, some of them look like a spaceship. They make a satisfying sound like in a horror movie when someone steps on a tree branch:) If so, it means it's a good soggy bud. They give off a strong earthy smell of a forest on a rainy day with pine aroma and hints of citrus fruits. The taste is pretty much the same: earthy and woody but also surprisingly peppery. Although I expected it to be more pungent. The effects are more interesting... The lights become a little brighter and then extend in straight lines exactly what it's like when you shoot a video of a computer screen on your phone. Then I noticed how strange the keys on my keyboard felt. Like it was the first time I touched it, or maybe I could feel more of it. Notice that the more you intake it the harder effects become. I think Afghan Kush buds would be a great help for people with any type of pain, ADT, ADHD, mood disorders and loss of appetite. Although this strain is really strong it's good even for newbies or anyone who wants to relax.
The first thing you should know about it is that this is a definitely nighttime smoke. It makes you highly relaxed but also stupidly lazy so if used in the morning or afternoon, your whole day will be spent on the couch. I smoked with a couple of friends and a small joint was enough for me to forget about everything in the world and enjoy this body buzz. I realized that this pot is incredibly potent after 3 or 4 hours as I was still high and feeling nice. The second thing is that you better have your fridge full of food, cause we ended up eating 4 XL pizzas while watching some stupid movies on tv. Love of my life after trying it only twice.
