Resinous intense odours of cooked food, used fats, solvents, rubbers, ripe apples, high moisture resistance and high production.A legendary Afghan plant with interesting qualities; vigour, resistance and its cannabinoid profile, its aromas of wood, solvents, coffee, earth and fruity aromas of acidic aromas such as blueberry and apple are a delight to smell and taste, its organoleptic characteristics are very accentuated and long-lasting on the palate in the vast majority of phenotypes expressed by this variety from southern Afghanistan, very vigorous Afghan variety.
From its first stages of growth, the plant shows very beautiful wide leaflets and thick reddish and purple stems, it germinates with great vigour, thus quickly becoming a seedling where it starts a very vigorous accelerated vegetative growth with thick stems, wide leaves and wide petioles;
The leaves are composed of 5 and 7 large leaflets. During its vegetative stage, which usually takes between 10 and 12 weeks maximum, most of its leaves look broad, thick and robust of a dark green, while when entering the flowering stage the leaves around the apical buds take a thin shape, they are closer to look like sativa leaves on a super indica looking plant, that’s something peculiar that characterizes these plants, something cute in them, whereas some leaves are so heavy that they cannot maintain their palmate shape, they shrink a little looking as if they lack hydration but that’s not the case, some phenotypes are like that, they are so scented that in their vegetative stage, in the mornings, they give off aromas of acrid lulo (solanum quitoense), earth and sweet solvents on their stems but also cooked food, used oil, and grease. So intense is the smell that it can cause nausea.
It’s enough to pass your hands through the foliage for it to expand and let you catch the aroma that their leaves emanate. On the other hand their stems are very thick and fragrant when rubbed. At the beginning of its flowering stage the accelerated growth stops and the formation of flower clusters begins at a medium speed. Its branches do not really grow much after the flowering has started.
During the vegetative stage the plants have formed several tiers of branches that will result in the formation of flower clusters hard like rocks in the vast majority of phenotypic expressions. This is something very characteristic in them. The formation of resin starts from the third day after the vegetative stage has completely stopped.
The resin glands produced are mostly short but of a good size;
The resin is very hard. So solid that some resinous leaves when you touch the heads of the trichomes they get glued to your hands without losing their spherical shape.
Some of the phenotypes will finish with high quality light yellow flowers, likewise there are colourful expressions both in the calyx and in the leaves of reddish-purple and black hues. A large part of the phenotypes show colour alterations at extreme temperature swings.
The flowers smell of wood, solvents, coffee, earth and fruits with acidic aromas such as ripe apples and blueberries. The flowering of these plants takes between 8 and 12 weeks. The maximum height is between 180cm and 200cm. Some plants reach heights of between 60 and 80 cm maximum depending on the month in which they are plants. The aroma and taste when sampling is acidic. The flavor is fragrant and intense on the palate. The effect is powerful and psychoactive in some phenotypes and as times passes you feel very relaxed and calm. Other plants are very narcotic. You can find dark purple and black-leaved plants in the last stage of flowering.
We are working on introducing more diversity into these plants to offer the best of both worlds. Medium-sized plants with wide leaves and dwarf plants. After these 20 packs we will only be working on introducing more diversity so as to offer more diversity for those who want to preserve diversity.
*** GROW AND SMOKE REPORT ***
One of my Kandahars is perfectly narcotic. You can stay awake long enough to do the dishes and take out the trash. When it is crash time you sleep for hours without waking. I have tried two Kandahars. Neither have much smell or taste. In that aspect, one could grow them and your neighbours would not smell them. Huge tennis ball size nuggets. Very solid nuggets. From a toker’s point of view I love the Kandahars. Potent, strong limbs, huge, beautiful nuggets; you see them and know you are going to like them. The smoke is extremely smooth. One will not cough while smoking Kandahar. Those who fuss about smell and taste will complain. Those that judge by the buzz will love Kandahars.
I love the Kandahar. It is my favorite smoke right now. Smooth with a great taste.
It did not smell at harvest. As it cures it develops a strong cake/cookie batter smell/taste.
I use it to sleep. Kandahar will always be in my current grow. A friend’s mother makes teas with my leaves. Kandahar will be the perfect strain for her. Kandahar is the perfect medical strain; no further breeding necessary. It is potent, tastes/smells awesome, helps you relax, sleep, put your latest cold in its place. Tennis ball size nuggets. What is there to not like about Kandahar? On a scale of 1 to 10 I give the Kandahars 9.6.
*** COMMENT FROM A GROWER ***
I think the Kandahar got better with age, super stoney buzz now. Nice earthy hash flavor. Buds are like rocks, really hard to break apart, but fluffs out to a huge pile of joint rolling herb.
