  Breeder's Description - 'Afghan'
Originally this strain was imported from Afghanistan and selectively bred in Holland for indoor cultivation. Afghan has a strong acrid aroma. Greasy resin glands extend to the fat shade leaves. The smoke is heavy with a strong almost numbing buzz if raised and cured properly. This plant has a high flower to leaf ratio and good yield. Afghan is one of the original genetic lines used in many popular modern day hybrids.

This strain produces quite nicely, especially in a SCROG application... I would recommend it to anyone wanting an easy to grow, nice yielding plant.

Very good strain. Pretty much easy to grow. I didn't use much fert throughout the grow and the plant seemed to cope. After drying and harvesting for one week then curing for another week the buds were strong and sweet. After a few months they were very, very strong! The longer the better in my case! ...continued

This was excellent weed, short, squatty, easy to grow plants. Smell was strong and pungent, taste was amazing. The plant do not appear to be very remarkable at first, look like bagseed, but they behave very well indoors and usually show sex at approx 4-5 internodes. I have never had a herm and I have had probably 40 total. Easy to clone and very hardy and resilient. Easy to regenerate if you leave a few leaves on and switch the light back to veg. The taste is a very unique greasy chemical taste that coats your mouth and throat, the high is a typical heavy Indica high but a pleasure nonetheless.

I germinated all 10 seeds in a 50/50 mix of vermiculite and perlite in a plastic Solo cup, at a depth of 1/4 inch. At day 4, I had 8 out of 10 seeds up and that was it. The seedlings grew well and I transplanted them into the full sized containers with lava rock media.

Very easy plant to grow in soil. didn't like hydro nearly as much as other varieties(sensitive to overfert).

Hashy taste without the cough. Too much couchlock for me but my wife just loved it! Mould resistant and not as tough as other indicas to clone. Very vigourous growth.

Of 12 seeds, I had one that was female. I grew it outside in FULL sun, in Central Ontario, Canada.
Big dark fan leaves were classic of this original Indica strain.

Beautiful full buds, (mine had purple flowers from the lower temperature outside)
I grew with organic ferts, not much at that, an

I finally dug up my old pics of my first grow. It was Afghan from Nirvana. I of course was a noob, and this is what I did. Started 2 seeds in paper towel and got 100% germ. Went on to using a lava lamp light bulb for the first week of veg. Needless to say I didn't get much growth. Then moved on to m ...continued

Having always enjoyed a nice heavy indica, Afghan being in my top-5 fav indicas, it was Afghan I chose as my change of strain after just over a year growing G13 as my main strain, AK47, W/Russian, Mango x Heaven & 1 or 2 various other strains.

So I opted for a pack of regular Afghan, a nice hassl
