The original ‘AK’, afghan kush seeds were brought from the heart of the Hindu Kush mountain range where its genotype has been selected and perfected over centuries to be the ultimate source of cannabis resin. Fragrant north Indian charas and sticky black Afghani hashish are both largely produced from Kush plants — a subset of the Indica family which may be considered definitive examples of that line.
Afghan Kush produces a heavy yield and remains compact, especially working with clones. Growers who flower their original seed plants will notice a jump in height at the onset of blooming, due to this strain’s natural vigour. Leaves are broad-bladed and dark green. Afghan Kush buds develop into massive, blunt-topped, resin-saturated nuggets of pure Indica goodness.
Originating from the Hindu Kush mountain range (Northern Afghanistan), this is another Indica of Kush lineage that grows wild in the valleys of Armu Darya, a river that forms the border between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. As different wild Kush varieties grow side-by-side in such a relatively small area, this very stable, almost 100% pure Indica strain is probably the result of multiple interbreeding. Very potent and tasting of hashish, Afghan Kush is highly valued for its medicinal properties.
