The Afghan Kush is a gloriously exotic cannabis seed – originating from the Hindu Kush mountain range which is located in Northern Afghanistan.
This indica strain grows wild in the valleys of the Armu Darya River which forms the border between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. In areas like this, many different strains of wild kush grow alongside each other and creating many different hybrids due to multiple interbreeding. As a result, it is stable and durable, making it easy to grow and look after.
This strain is highly sought after due to its medicinal properties as well as its hashish aroma and sweet fruity flavour.
