Black Afghani, which is also known as Black Afghan, is an almost pure (90%) Indica strain with an impressive genetic backbone created by Medicann Seeds. This marijuana is a result of the Afghani genetics through crossing several strains, including Afghan Kush and Black Domina. The amount of THC in this phenotype is 10.5%, while average THC levels are measured between 9.5% and 11.5%. The Black Afghani strain contains multiple naturally occurring compounds, including the following cannabinoids:

  • 0.35-1.1% CBC
  • 0.2-1.34% CBG
  • 0.37-1.58% THCV
  • 0.19% CBN
  • 1.6-2.37% CBD

This marijuana burns with pungent and heavy smoke. It may trigger watery eyes or coughing in novice smokers and is usually recommended for veterans.

Strain Aroma and Taste

The cannabis aroma palette is diverse and formed by a complex terpene profile. This weed is highly recognizable due to the smell of sweet fruits (especially peaches) and nuts because the strain contains bisabolol, terpinolene, phellandrene, and ocimene terpenes. A slight ammonia scent is added by carene.

Effects and Medical Benefits of Black Afghani Strain

The Black Afghani strain is famous for its sedative effects which lead to a euphoric state of mind. This weed helps the user's mind to zone out for some particular task, which makes it ideal for morning use. The effects show up slowly. This cannabis gives an uplifting buzz that makes people creative and happy. In some consumers, it provokes giggles and munchie-inducing effects. If smoked in high doses, the weed can make people sleepy, lazy, and, as a result, couch-locked.

This kush succeeds in alleviating the symptoms associated with the following conditions:

  • Stress
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • Multiple sclerosis

As any powerful strain, Black Afghani may provoke side effects in users and cause:

  • Tingling
  • Dry mouth
  • Panic attacks
  • Dry eyes

Grow Information

For home growers, the cultivation of the Black Afghani strain is of moderate difficulty. Unfortunately, the seeds are often unavailable for online purchases. Gardeners should find a vendor who sells plant clippings. Again, outdoor cultivation requires a humid and hot climate.

The plants are quite short (30-60 inches), which is characteristic of Indicas. The strain has got its name for its dark (almost black) buds. It needs a flowering cycle of 68 to 75 days and is ready to harvest in 79 days. It is a medium yield plant with a harvest of 0.5-1 oz./ft2 for indoor and 1-2 oz./ft2 for outdoor conditions.

Black 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 - 18.25%
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. 3.3 - 3.8%
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. 0.35 - 1.1%
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. 0.2 - 1.34%
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. 0.14 - 0.16%
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. 0.37 - 1.58%

This is a heavy-hitting Indica and this actually describes everything. Kills anxiety and stress right on the spot and like a real Indica knocks you out after an hour or two. The high is potent and affects both the head and the body providing an extremely

Well, before smoking I was a bit anxious, now I smoked and there are no signs of anxiety at all. Probably, this will stick on my list for a long time.

The best choice for the nighttime relaxation after a hard day at work. Relaxes and causes munchies, which relieves almost all unpleasant effects. An A grade Indica!

Though Black Afghan literally glues the body to the couch, I liked it pretty much. Especially recommend listening to music or having something tasty.

Usually I don’t smoke something like this and prefer energizing Sativas and maybe that’s the reason I didn’t like Black Afghani that much. The flavors are good, but I wouldn’t call them outstanding, especially when lit. After smoking the high was potent a
