Tweed Afghan Kush Cannabis Review & Photos

Afghan Kush from Tweed is a classic indica-dominant strain with very strong THC potency, dense flowers and a trichome-rich appearance.

Afghan Kush is another classic cannabis strain much like Sensi Star or Northern Lights.

However the origins of this flower go all the way back to the Hindu Kush mountains and is considered a Landrace strain. Its terpene profile tends to be a combination of earthy myrcene balanced by the clove-like beta-caryophyllene and piney alpha-pinene. Plus, Afghan Kush often is a top choice for making concentrates such as sticky black Afghani hash.

So how does this cultivar compare to other classics like the Hindu Kush strain?

Smell

Tweed’s Afghan Kush was delivered in a black metal container. For some reason I always struggle opening this square tins, but when I finally got the lid off I noticed a mild herbal and floral scent. It was not strong and reminded me of a fresh greenhouse.

Appearance

Tweed definitely gets a good score on appearance. Their Afghan Kush was a nice combination of light and dark green tones with with sporadic brown hairs and an even frosting of trichomes. The buds looked dense but were actually quite light and fluffy.

Flavour

The myrcene in Afghan Kush’s terpene profile is very noticeable When smoked you really get a strong yet soothing sweet herbal-dominant flavour with a drop of lemon which is very relaxing.

Experience

Afghan Kush from Tweed is a heavy hitter worthy of its legendary status. It delivers a very strong, foggy mind high leaving you no doubt why this strain has been around so long and spoken of so highly.

Summary
Afghan Kush is one of those strains with a big name to live up to... however Tweed delivers what you're expecting. We do think this product would be a lot better if it included a moisture pack. The buds were very dry and that affected the aroma and flavour. That being said, this product delivers a very strong, foggy mind high leaving you no doubt why this strain has been around so long and spoken of so highly.
Good
  • Low price
  • Very strong high
  • Pleasing taste
Bad

Since high school my friends and I have been recreational cannabis users so we decided to start Merry Jade after legalization in 2019. We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience. Each category gets a score out of 10.

Have your say!

  1. Tweed and Canaca produce the worst legal Cannabis in Ontario IMO. All of their products contain excess packaging, are bone dry, petrified even. Very little flavor beyond dirt and woodchips. The buds get minor points for appearance but don’t expect to be floating around in the clouds with these brands unless you are inexperienced or new to Cannabis. Tweed Houndstooth, Candyland and the product they grow for DNA Genetics are probably the worst strains I’ve ever had and for a company that places a lot of it’s interest in increasing it shareholder margins we should expect a lot better from Tweed/Canopy Growth. They’ve been in the game the longest yet have taken every possible avenue to increase profit at the expense of producing a decent product.

    • I find Tweed to be hit and miss at best. There was a couple of strains I thought were okay but several others that were not very impressive.
