A multiple prize winner, Purple Afghan Kush is a crossing between Purple Kush and Bubba Kush. It stays relatively small and flowers for about 9 weeks. The buds may become orange/purple of color and taste like freshly cut pineapple. It is well suited for indoor growing and outdoors, as long as its a Mediterranean climate. The short flowering time reduces chances of moisture-related problems.

Purple Afghan Kush is a strain bred by Dinafem with indica lovers in mind. Almost a pure indica, Purple Afghan Kush is a cross between the infamous purebred indica Purple Kush (which won a place in High Times Top 10 Most Powerful Strains in 2016) and a Pre 98’ Bubba Kush that is an 85% indica hybrid. Safe to say, Purple Afghan Kush is an indica-dominant strain, a fact that will show in its appearance and high.
Due to its high-quality indica heritage, Purple Afghan Kush is a pleasure to grow as it is a resistant, vigorous and fast-flowering strain. Suited both for indoor and outdoor growing, although it will really shine in a Mediterranean climate where it will produce an extraordinary yield of 600-800g/plant. Indoors it will remain bush like, reaching a short height, but producing compact, resinous buds that will lead to a yield of 500g/m². Did we mention that all of this happens in a 60-day flowering period? And don’t forget that the fast flowering helps with problems related to moisture.
After harvest, you will have buds that have a very high bag appeal. The buds turn purple and lavender, making for an exotic look. Combine that with the intense aroma of freshly cut pineapple, and you have got yourself cannabis worthy any top notch, personal stash. On top of that, Purple Afghan Kush doesn’t slack in the potency department; with high levels of THC, she’s going to grant you a perfect indica high, relaxing body and mind.
If you are by any chance still not convinced how amazing this strain is, then you should know that Purple Afghan Kush is a multiple prize winner including 1st prize in the “Best Indica” category at Expogrow 2015. A word to the wise.
