Afghan Outdoor is mostly Indica and adjusts very well outdoors as well as indoors, indoor growing results in a higher yield like with almost every kind of cannabis seeds. Because of its dominant Indica properties the leaves of Afghan outdoor are wide and strong what gives the plant itself a bushy round look. Buds grow all around the branches so a high yield is guaranteed, all in all a very clever choice of plant also because they are covered with a nice sticky layer of resin, also very suitable for making hashes. If the buds appear you'll notice their famous fat citrus fresh smell that makes you wish for the end of the flowering period. The taste from smoking the buds are real afghan taste, somewhere between an earthy hash flavours. Smoking Afghan outdoors gives you a strong body high feeling and makes you forget any worries and put a smile on your face.
This grand breed of cannabis has its origins in the Hindu Kush mountain range of Northern parts of Afghanistan. This is a breed is a 100% Indica and one among the few pure breeds out there. The Afghan outdoors’ genotype has been handpicked and was perfected over a few hundred years to become cannabis resin’s ultimate source. This breed is used to deduce the popular black and sticky “Afghani Hashish”, and the fragrant north “Indian Charas”.
Fat Buds with Dark Leaves
The Afghan Cannabis has huge fat buds, and large, thick leaves, which are usually broad bladed and are dark green in colour. These Afghan buds grow into huge, blunt resin loaded nuggets of Indica goodness of the purest kind. Even though the plant does not contain many crystals, the hash is thick and smooth, almost like smoke.
Even though the smell is very strong, the flavour is quite sweet and fruity. The considerably high content of (CBD) Cannibidiol makes it quite a valuable chemio type medicine. This medicinal property of Afghan can be used to treat people suffering from antispasmodic (muscle pain) and it’s ideal for prevent vomiting, but not recommended for consumption by pregnant women though.
The Afghan Outdoor usually produces a very heavy yield and almost always is compact. Since, it is a pure breed; they are usually bought for cloning. Growers who sow their original seeds can see a sudden spur of growth and a huge height jump when the blooming starts. This happens because of the natural vigour the strain holds.
Recommended to be Grown Outdoors
Generally, the Afghan can be grown indoors as well as outdoors but the yield when grown outdoors is much larger. It is about 500 to 600 grams yield per plant outdoors but only 400 grams yield per plant indoors; so it is preferred and recommended that one grows them outdoors. They take about 8 or 9 weeks, and the harvest time is usually in the beginning of October. The THC level can be anything between 10% and 15%.
On the Whole
Afghan Outdoor cannabis grows up to a height of 35 to 50 cms. If you have a busy schedule and have very little time to spare for maintenance, then Afghan is the best bet for you.
