Afghan Kush is another one of the classic cannabis varieties. Whether or not you’ve personally experienced Afghan Kush, you’ve likely experienced its offspring. While you are unlikely to come by the wild growing Afghan Kush, as most landrace varieties have been selectively bred to accentuate the best traits and minimize the negative ones, you are very likely to encounter this strain in legal cannabis markets.
As Kush often denotes (although there are exceptions!), this strain has a deep earth and spice smell and tends to produce heavy body effects that promote relaxation and lethargy. I love this strain because the effects are remarkably calming, with little cerebral effects. There are higher CBD varieties of Afghan Kush, but generally you’ll find this strain rich in THC. This strain is generally considered great for hash extractions, due in part to the history of hash production in Afghanistan with landraces, as well as the large amount of trichome coverage Afghan Kush is known for.
While Afghan Kush tends to be high in THC, this sample is exceptionally high with 21% THC content. The terpene profile of this sample matches on well to the typical description of Afghan Kush’s smell. Caryophyllene and myrcene dominate, which help to explain the spice and earth smell of Afghan. A notable myrcene presence (1.02%) may partly explain the heavy body effects of Afghan Kush (SC Labs maintains that over .5% myrcene content will likely cause a more sedative effect). Of course, the synergistic interactions that make up Afghan Kush’s effects are more complex than myrcene concentration alone.
For some, this strain is just for relaxing, but others who don’t find the heavy body sensation debilitating may be able to utilize this strain for activities. I have found some degree of mobility with this heavy strain, but that may be atypical. I like this strain for the clearer head I have relative to other strains. Like all high-THC strains, there is a cerebral effect; it just isn’t very powerful in Afghan Kush. Afghan Kush is a classic strain that is an excellent choice for consumers who like strong body sensations in their cannabis.
X-Wing is an strong indica descended from the Skywalker OG strain. Patients love the strain because it soothes pain and helps combat insomnia while still leaving you creative and clear headed.
Don't get us wrong, this is an indica all the way and should be taken at night. But, there are cerebral tinges to this high that will keep the brain moving. Give yourself a few hours for a long, intense buzz.
X-Wing has that earthy dank smell that Skywalker OG is known for and bright green buds overflowing with crystals and red hairs. The exhale feels like the OG earthy dank smell condenced into a powerful taste that leaves your throat tingling.
Independent growers will have a hard time finding clones and seeds. If you're lucky you'll enjoy fairly heavy yield with a flower time of about 8-9 weeks. Many growers recommend topping with all OG's so this Skywalker OG descendant should fall into that category.
A-10 is a strain without a ton of information about it’s origins. Some point to the San Francisco Bay area with rumors that the great Ed Rosenthal played a significant role in its creation. It has a strong, earthy taste and heavy indica effects. Despite its earthy taste the typically thick flowers smell fairly juicy and fruity when squeezed.
A-10 has an earthy, hashy taste that provides a very heavy body stone. Used to treat insomnia and chronic pain.
A popular strain found mostly in California, Girl Scout Cookies tastes of cotton candy and has a THC level of 18-23%. Girl Scout Cookies is an indica-dominant hyrbrid known for its uplifting, long-lasting cerebral effects while providing the relaxing body high most indicas are known for.
Girl Scout Cookies has a rare combination effect of stimulation and relaxing body buzz. While often prescribed for insomnia and recommended for night use, many patients cite it's low "couch lock" effect as the reasons it is a favorite. In fact, many patients at first mistake Girl Scout Cookies for a sativa if they are used to smoking heavy indicas.
The origins of Girl Scout Cookies is thought to be from either Florida or California. While best known as a California staple, many believe the strain is originally from Florida. We believe it is a little of both. While developed in California, the strain was created using a Florida OG Kush with a Californian Durban Poison. Girl Scout Cookies first spread in California before taking the rest of the U.S. by storm.
Girl Scout Cookies was long a clone-only strain, which constributed to its exclusivity and mystique. As legal cannabis has grown, an increasing number of companies have engineered seeds that can be found in numerous places online.
Girl Scout Cookies plants are of medium height with a tangled phalynx of bright green branches, leading way to dense buds with purple tints. Girl Scout Cookies buds are also known to be covered in frosty crystals, perhaps lending a little more mysitque to its reputation for being one of the sweetest, most potent indica hybrids available.
The Northern Lights genetics are part of many of the most promising indoor strain varieties. One of the most potent and famous cannabis strains in the world she delivers a stoned body high like no other. Northern lights were originally pure indicas, but most strains you'll find today are indica-dominant hybrids that produce cerebral body highs just a touch milder than the pure indica strains.
Most marijuana historians point to the Pacific Nothwest, most likely Washington State, as the source of the original pure indica Northern Lights strain with the potency and skunky smell they were known for. The original pure indicas could be found up through the 1980s before most were crossed with sativas and many different hybrids were sent out into the public. The Northern Lights we know today still skews indica, but tends to be less of a body high and less potent than the original strains.
Growers like Northern Lights for its potency, but also because it is a resilient, easy to grow plant. In addition, flowering time is short (45-55 days on average) and the plant tends to produce large, dense, compact buds with frost all around them. Northern Lights plants don't produce a heavy smell and yields tend to be large.
Northern Lights can have a strong flowery taste depending on growing conditions, but most describe its taste as sweet and tangy with a piney aftertaste. Even the most seasoned users describe a long-lasting high. Most smokers describe Nothern Lights as a creeper high that builds over time.
Don’t underestimate the strength of this indica strain or the indica-dominant hybrids most see out there. This is for those looking for heavy relaxation probably during the evening or during a day where you have nothing to do. Inexperienced smokers might have difficulty staying awake when first trying Northern Lights given its heavy body high and anti-anxiety effects.
