Dominant Origins & Notables
There are legends in this world and then there are icons. The Afghan Fem strain is both of those and more and hardly a cannabis related conversation goes by without some mention of the strain. After all, the genetics of Afghan have proven as durable as the people that inhabit the Hindu Kush mountains, where the strain originates from. This is an original landrace strain meaning that it has no known parental lineages. A true OG if there ever was one. Strangely, Afghan strain has not garnered any major awards of note, however, it is a parent of many award-winning hybrid strains and it remains a very popular strain within the cannabis community. It is as steeped in lore as its country of origin.
Tough is probably the most accurate word that one could use to describe the Afghan strain. It is resistant to disease and most common pests as well as molds and mildew.
Afghan can be grown both indoors and outdoors with great results from both methods. Genetics play a major role in the durability of this plant. Originating from a high, dry and windy climate has blessed each and every plant with the ability to flourish nearly anywhere. Considered to be low maintenance, this strain is an ideal teaching tool for novice growers and a staple strain for experienced cultivators. Reaching a stout height of two to three feet with bushy lateral reaching branches it is easily managed and cared for with regular watering, feeding and trimming. Once again the geographical origins of Afghan Fem strain seeds factor heavily into its growth cycle. The harsh climates within which it originated created the necessity of a fast flowering time. Afghan forms large, heavy buds that are coated with crystals making it appear as if it was dusted in confectioners’ sugar. Higher, mountainous regions see shorter amounts of light and experience sudden and often severe weather changes necessitating the need for a faster reproduction time. Generally speaking, the strain flowers in between seven to ten weeks. Patience is a virtue when growing cannabis seeds at home so novice growers will also do well with the shorter flowering times gaining valuable experience in a lessened period of time.

Afghan marijuana seeds will grow well in both indoor and outdoor. By choosing to grow indoors you have much more control over the environment the plant is growing in. A minimum of one 150 watt high intensity sodium discharge lamp is recommended. Timing your lighting for sixteen to eighteen hours a day will give your plants ample time for photosynthesis through the seedling and vegetative state. Gradually bringing down the light exposure to a twelve on, twelve off split will trigger the flowering stage. In a short seven to ten weeks of flowering you will see large kola sized bright green buds on top and slightly smaller buds on the lateral branches. All will be coated in a beautiful creamy amber resin that sticks to your fingers like glue. Provided you pay appropriate attention to your plants you can expect over a pound of ripe cannabis flowers per plant at harvest time.
Indoor growing yields great results with Afghan, however, growing the strain outside provides the plant with a full spectrum of light that simply can’t be replicated with man made lighting. Being as resilient as it is, Afghan can grow in nearly any climate but performs best in dry, warm locations. Regular watering, feeding and trimming will help yield the best results. Trimming is particularly important to maintain airflow through to the base of the plant, allowing it to fight off mold and mildew. Plant the seeds in late May for a September or October harvest. Yields from ideal outdoor growing conditions and proper care can be expected to be in the pound and a half to two pound range. The buds seemingly get even stickier when grown outdoors and the trichomes coating the sugar leaves take on the look of fresh frost on a mountain meadow.
Medicinal marijuana users value this strain immensely. The high THC content and fast acting effects make for a reliable and consistent therapy. Just a few tokes on a joint is all it takes to melt away the most chronic of painful conditions. Along with the analge-sic effects comes a very powerful sedative effect. To say this strain relaxes you is an understatement. Smokers can quite quickly find their way to the couch and not leave it until bedtime. If you are having trouble sleeping, Afghan can give you the restorative rest you crave. More common conditions such as stress, depression and anxiety can all be relieved with this strain.
Relatively minor adverse reactions can happen with Afghan, usually for inexperienced smokers that haven’t yet established their tolerance. Cottonmouth and dry eyes are commonplace and in rare instances mild paranoia, headaches and slight dizziness have been reported.
Being a pure indica strain, smokers can expect a full-on body numbing buzz that will put you on the couch with a smile on your face. Make sure you have some snack food close at hand to avoid the unnecessary effort of leaving the couch. A sense of calm, uplifted euphoria envelopes the mind as stress dissipates and depression eases. Afghan is best enjoyed in the evening hours due to its sedative effects and it is also an excellent way to say goodbye to the day with a blissful night’s sleep.
Afghan smells like the weed you bought twenty years ago when its availability wasn’t nearly what it is today. Get ready for a dank, dark and earthy with a pungent, skunky odor that releases to a minty, floral scent as the smoke fades from the room. Although not in the air freshening business, Afghan possesses a lovely scent that hangs in the air for just the right amount of time.
A true one of a kind flavor profile exists in this strain. The pungent, earthy aromas translate well to the taste buds and deliver an herbal, minty flavor that is followed by a sweet and creamy finish. The smoke is smooth and rarely overwhelms the lungs so smokers can really enjoy the subtle notes of flavor that come with lighting up a joint.
Curious about adding additional strains to your seed collection? The following strains are wonderful options if you are looking for something similar to Afghan, while also wanting to diversify benefits and traits.
Shhh! What you’re about to read is classified. Okay maybe not top secret but it is confidential. L.A. Confidential x Afghan Kush to be more accurate. An indica dominant strain that offers creative, euphoric, mood boosts and the sedative effect to keep them all balanced. Perfect for pain relief, anxiety, depression and stress.
Nobody kept the secret with Afghani x Hawaiian x Laos x Jamaica. Looks like everyone came to the party here and what a party it is. This globally themed sativa dominant hybrid gives smokers a heightened sense of being with the cognitive focus of a chess master. All while delivering relaxation that melts pain away and seems to make everything right in the world.
Considering the lengthy history of the strain it has become a prominent parent to a great many of hybrids. Afghan Kush Fem being one of those. The sedative effects are as prominent as the body warming buzz that comes after just a couple puffs. The flavor is similar to hash but with subtle hints of sour fruit and an aroma to match. The difference comes in the growth though, Afghan Kush is known to reach impressive heights of up to three meters outdoors. Sadly, the yields are not as great, often coming in at under one pound when harvested.
Two great strains in one is what you get with Afghan Kush x Super Skunk. An indica dominant with a noticeable sativa component, this strain delivers right out of the gate. A high THC content of nineteen percent produces a strong body numbing buzz and sets the mind at ease. A sweet earthy flavor is accompanied by a skunky, pungent aroma.
Coming full circle, we arrive back at a fast flowering version of the original. Auto Afghan takes ease of growth to the next level. Afghan, Skunk#1 and a Russian Ruderalis went into creating these weed seeds. A slightly higher sativa component than Afghan delivers a lighter sedative effect while still easing pain, stress and anxiety.
When you are one of the originally cultivated cannabis strains you don’t need a nickname. That being said, Afghan is actually the modern moniker the strain goes by. Originally known as Afghani, the “i” has been dropped, most likely because the strain has become so ingrained in cannabis culture it has earned its own slang terminology.
