Afghani is a heavy Indica strain and one of the earliest cannabis varieties known in the world. The Afghani marijuana strain got its name after its origin. As you can assume, Afghani originates from the stunning lands that straddle the Afghanistan and Pakistan border. No one really knows when the strain was first grown, which makes it as old as the hills and probably – one of the prehistoric weeds that started this amazing journey for marijuana lovers.

Notorious for holding one of the top places in cannabis lists around, the Afghani is a marvelous recreational and medicinal strain. In terms of THC level, Afghani cannabis has content that ranges between 16% and 18%, in combination with the CBD level of around 0.6%.


The Afghani cannabis smells of sweet flowers. It has an earthy and floral pungency that reminds of a perfume. According to consumers, the Afghani cannabis strain has a natural, grounding scent coupled with subtle spicy and piney notes. At the aftertaste, you can smell blends of herbs and flowers.


The high from the Afghani weed comes like a wave. Once you start smoking it, you’ll feel waves of euphoria, relaxation, and happiness rolling over your entire body. This is the first big wave of effects. After an hour or two, the second wave overtakes your body, easing you into a weighty, very peaceful calm. Generally, consumers mostly note such properties:

  • Relaxation
  • Sleepiness
  • Happiness
  • Euphoria
  • Hunger

Seeing that high from the Afghani marijuana strain is felt more on a physical level, you definitely want to leave the smoke for after your important daily tasks are completed. This weed will provide you with clarity and body high at first but soon after, it will make you deeply relaxed and probably confined to your couch or your bed. It’s basically the ideal marijuana for those who want to rid themselves of stressful thoughts and dip into a pool of deep sensation and euphoric bliss.

Here are the five most common medicinal appointments:

  • Stress relief
  • Pain relief
  • Helps with insomnia
  • Helps you deal with anxiety
  • Assists with depression

Adverse effects can happen with any marijuana strain. But the most common side effects of consuming Afghani marijuana are easy to manage and all of them are reported by less than half of the consumers. They include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Paranoia
  • Dry eyes
  • Headache

Growing Information

Afghani makes for a rather simple indoor grow. Its stalks range between 2 and 4 feet in height and produce a rapid high yield. The flowering of the Afghani marijuana strain begins in around 8 weeks and full harvest is possible at a 4-month mark. If grown in similar latitudes to the Central Asian climate, the strain can be grown outdoors, too.

Afghani Strain Cannabinoids

THC Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component. 15.75 - 17.75%
CBD Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps. 0.62 - 0.97%
CBC Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. 0.3 - 0.86%
CBG Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure. 0.25 - 0.98%
CBN Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss. 0.3 - 0.36%
THCV Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V. 0.18 - 1.05%

I used some leftovers and kief to make Afghan Hash…PERFECTION! Thats the best sign of potency, and it also makes Afghani a cost-effective choice. Dry leftovers from many other strains are very difficult to process on your own and get a quality hash...

Great for sleep and makes you relaxed, easing into sleep. But this weed is a bit too strong for me. I dont think this terpene is for any beginners, you need just a little to get really far

I get to concentrate much more intently after a few hits of this ganja which is strange for Indica-dominant strains. The nearly perfect balance of Indica and Sativa is manifested in its MMJ effects. For example, another effect I experience is creative juices flowing throughout my mind.

If you like edibles, this kush is the perfect one for you because there is a variety of recipes to try out with it. When using this kush for edibles, use the decarboxylated version regardless of your recipe.
