One of the backbones of most indica hybrids is Afghan Kush. This strain has become a legend in hybrids thanks to its strong, resin-covered buds that provide high yields and strong sedative effects. Afghan Kush originates from the Kush mountains and has been growing naturally there for hundreds of years where it has been used to make hash thanks to its sticky buds.
Relaxation is the number one medical benefit of Afghan Kush. This strain is strong and it will leave you so relaxed that you might fall asleep. Afghan Kush is best enjoyed in the evenings but in lower doses, it can provide effective pain relief during the day. Your entire body will be affected by this strong indica and if you suffer from insomnia, stress, or PTSD, you will enjoy this strain. Its smell is a sweet combination of woody and earthy aromas. Expect a short and easy-to-grow plant that should be ready to harvest within 9 weeks of flowering.
