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?

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.
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.
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.
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.
