Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: Deep and pungent flavors of hash, skunk and earth, with a fruity and skunky aftertaste make for an excellent flavor combination. This weed will knock you down for at least an hour and is suggested for those suffering from moderate to severe insomnia.
Simply put, you won’t be disappointed with your select choice of Afghani #5. This nearly pure indica bud offers tight, dense and highly danky nugs that positively shimmer with sticky trichrome crystals. B.C. Grown has truly gifted this unique strain among the cannabis world. To achieve this potent bud they crossed two illustrious and notably potent strains – Afghani #1 and Northern Lights #5.
Many growers prefer growing these ladies in a Sea of Green environment as opposed to nearly any other method. This is not to say, however, that they can’t be grown exceptionally well outdoors or in another indoor method of cultivation. Expect a consistent 8 week flowering time with these ladies. You’ll want to be sure to wait the full 8 weeks, as the calyxes tend to swell immensely during the final week of maturity. Greenhouses aren’t particularly recommended for this strain as they are somewhat sensitive to mold. This is why when you’re growing them indoors, ensure you have adequate ventilation, and don’t grow them in a humid outdoor environment – unless you want all your hard work to result in rotted calyxes.
The moment you open a jar of Afghani #5, your nostrils will be overwhelmed by the furious yet highly relaxing aroma of hash and fruit. Actually, your eyes may be overwhelmed as well from the pure beauty that these buds have when grown properly. Pick up at least an eighth of this bud from a variety of dispensaries for around $55.
