All About Garlic Weed Strain


Garlic weed strain, which is also known as Garlic Bud or Garlic Kush, is a pure Indica strain. It is a descendant of Afghani genetics that emerged thankfully to Sensi Seeds in the ’90s.

The kush contains a pretty high THC level that ranges between 15-21%. Due to its high potency and odd flavors, it might not be the best choice for novice smokers. Smoking Garlic is recommended during nighttime because of its strong sedative properties.

It emits a strong, spicy aroma, resembling garlic with some earthy hints, which is a real explanation for the appearance of this strain’s name. When inhaling, the smoke provides a tangy musky taste combined with a slight herbal and woody presence that balances it.

Typical Effects

Despite it’s not the most delicious cannabis strain, its properties pay double. Right after the first toke, it shows its properties:

    I would buy this again. It puts me in a good mood and kills all pain in my body. Thats RELIEF! Also great for insomnia and gives a restful sleep. The only challenge is to find some dispensary near me that sells it.


    Burns evenly and gives intense smoke. Its a nice weed for stoners who like having a full body high. U feel the buzz just after a few tokes and then u have a complete relaxation. I plan on getting seeds and growing this on my own – they say it gives a dec


    Not actually the flavor and aftertaste that I like. Its extremely pungent and harsh. But veterans and connoisseurs may like it….


    Highly sedative. Can’t recommend it for activities.
    Paul P, I cant tell it smells like garlic to me.

    One of popular strains due to its Afghani genetics. As a powerful Indica, it does the job. It has its name for a reason – the smell of the strain is spicy reminding me of garlic with distinct hints of earth and ammonia.
