Afghanica is a new cannabis strain developed by the Flying Dutchman seed breeders who crossed two very famous indicas, Skunk and Afghan No.1. As a result, another powerful F1 hybrid ? Afghanica – came to life and made some changes in the modern marijuana society. This strain is very potent, with a strong dominating Afghan flavor and a quality buzz coupled with dominant Skunk yields.
Growing Afghanica is very easy. Typically indica, she behaves like one. Her seeds produce quite short plants which quickly develop bushy dark green crowns around sturdy stems. A pure Afghan landrace from the Mazari Sharif region of Afghanistan give these seeds good resistance to mild stress and some diseases. This strain can be grown well indoors and outdoors. Afghanica develops the first flowers during the first flowering weeks. She produces less bud sites than her sativa counter partner, but the buds are more dense, which definitely affect the quality of the marijuana.
Afghanica kicks with her consistent 15% of THC. Already at the very early stage you can clearly see white pistils for each calix. Typically for indica cannabis, this variety has lower THC and higher CBD counts which produces a very powerful, couchlock effect; suitable for many medical applications.
Afghanica is an excellent yielder – she produces around 150 gr. of resinous heavy buds dripping with resin per m2 if grown indoors. Outdoor varieties show the same result but per plant. It’s entirely up to you where to cultivate her. She is happy almost everywhere: as an individual pot plant or a member of a green group growing in soil or in hydroponics setups.
The dried marijuana keeps the fresh sweet and spicy Afghan smell and taste which tends to turn skunky, thick and greasy during smoking. She burns well and quickly, giving an unusually clear buzz and a slightly delayed, no hangover, effect.
