Kush, much like Skunk, is one of the recognizable and famous names of the cannabis indica family. Our Afghan Kush cannabis seeds perfectly capture everything that is cherished and loved about this line of indica; offering growers quick growing times, decent yields and a full on body stone. This is an indica classic that is sure to win a place in your heart.
The name Kush pays homage to Hindu Kush, a mountain range that stretches between central Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan. This is the geographical location that Kush strains are said to originate from, and ours is no different - our Afghan Kush was originally found growing wild on the slopes of the mountain ranges in Afghanistan.
When smoked, Afghan Kush will fill your mouth with the taste of pungent, earthy hash. It induces a strong but relaxing body stone that seeps throughout your entire being, easing you down in to comfort and bliss. It is perfect for use after a long, tiring, physically exerting day – when you want to unwind on the sofa with your significant other or chill in the garden with friends. This is straight forward, no frills indica at its best. Medical users will appreciate this as an evening/nighttime smoke. Afghan Kush has a good couch-lock potential, should you be that way inclined. Users will also feel a benefit from its ability to reduce the symptoms of stress, anxiety, pain, insomnia and lack of appetite.
Much like the wild variation of these seeds, our Afghan Kush marijuana seeds develop into a hardy plant that has excellent, vigorous growth – making it a great choice for novices. It can really bulk out and will fill in any available space, so make sure to take care when growing indoors. When given enough space outside this beast can reach up to 3m tall.
With a quick flowering time of 7-8 weeks, Afghan Kush is going to be very appealing to those looking for an easy, quick grow. When grown indoors you can expect a yield of around 400-550g/m². If you want to grow Afghan Kush outdoors, then you will need to make sure you are in a suitable warm environment (such as Spain or Italy). She will be ready for harvest around late September and will yield you in the region of 150g per plant in an ideal setting.
Our Afghan Kush cannabis seeds will give you a solid indica grow with some very favorable results.
