Afghani is a powerful indica strain commonly used to relieve pain, stress and insomnia because it provides total body relaxation. The aroma of Afghani is earthy and slightly sweet with undertones of spice, skunk, and coffee. The smoke is often harsh. Afghani is widely considered to be one of, if not the, oldest strains in existence, and is said to have originated in Afghanistan. Different areas of Afghanistan have fostered different Afghani strain variants (#1 – #3), so there is not one single cannabis landrace known as Afghani; but all true Afghani landraces are pure indicas.
