  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 ...continued

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.

SI RatingNot Listed Vintage: March, 2002

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, and the yield reflected this.
Very very drought resistant, clones easily (I had 100% success rate) stalks like a TREE!
Potency was crap at first, but after three weeks of curing, they were decent indeed! Only got better as the weeks went by.

Everyone that smoked it loved it, and when I told people it was Afghani, they all said the same thing "Ahhh, I knew I recognized that high", none of them knew what the Indica flavor and high were all about. This is the REAL DEAL as far as the genuine Indica hash plants go... next season Iíll make hash and oil for sure.

I had a serious drying issue. It took my single plant FIVE, yes FIVE weeks to show any signs of drying. The temperature was a steady 70-75 degrees with 45% humidity. I was very disappointed because I lost about a quarter of the buds to mold because of this.

Was my first grow, I had some bagseed going as well, but the Afghani outperformed the others at every turn. My final bud count was 45 grams dried buds. It is what it is, an original "KING of Cannabis"

Seedlings were germinated using the damp paper towel and ziplock bag method. I placed the bag on top of my computer monitor and 9 seedlings had cracked within 3 days. 1 seed failed to germinate. 1 seedling died before reaching a few days old.

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
