I picked up an eighth of 17% THC Afghani at a nearby dispensary. I was just checking it out on the Internet when I found this web site. I just now smoked 3 big, single hit bowls, in my ancient bamboo bong. I just realized that I could have/should have stopped at 2 bowls. I feel good, strangely alert, and "One toke over the line"! Afghani is so pleasant-not harsh, and I would smoke it in joints, just for the flavor. I think that it would be a waste of this pot to smoke it in a joint. This stuff is so pleasantly powerful that a large pea sized nug should be enough, unless you're going to listen to music with headphones or just go to bed. This is what $15 an ounce pot was like, for me, around the New York area, in the late 1960's. (After you pulled out the leaf and stems.) Back then, it really was from Afghanistan, and you got the whole plant!
THC: 16% - 20%, CBD: 1%Afghani may be one of the most popular marijuana strains the world has ever seen. Though this strain isn't as powerful as its long history suggests (THC levels at about 17-20%%), this strain is certainly strong enough to deliver a deep, sedated body high with a strong shot of euphoria. CBD levels are low, considerably less than 1%. A near-pure indica (sativa/indica ratio of 5:95), this strain was named got its name from its home country, where it grows in the Hindu Kush Mountains. This is close to the mountainous region where humans first tamed wild cannabis thousands of years ago. Afghani, also known as Afghan Kush, is a source of countless hybrid strains around the world, many of them very popular. Best used to treat chronic pain and anxiety, this strain is also good for insomnia due to its heavy indica genes. Afghani has a pungent, earthy smell and taste, with a sweet flavor. The high is deeply relaxed, with strong euphoria and a mood boost. It's best used late at night, since it can easily induce sleep. Dry mouth is a distinct possibility, as are dry eyes, headache, and dizziness. Afghani is most popular on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in British Columbia.

Not as potent as I had hoped (I have a fairly high tolerance), but was still a great strain to use right before bedtime. It made me feel happy, relaxed, sleepy and less anxious. Some nights I would fall asleep before the movie I had put on was over, while other times I had to get out of bed and use some more. I only purchased a gram of this, and it went super fast. The smell and taste is strong, but too bad. I would definitely repurchase.
Old school goodie that always delivers. 4.5 stars only a the extremely elite strains get the full 5 stars. Although Afghani comes close and probably is in most elite rated Cannabis strains I still reserve 5* rates for mind blowing strains only. Don’t be turned away by the 4.5 rating it’s still some of the dankest medicine you can find. Very stable strain as well.
Best I've tried so far!
Old school fav. Always nice.
Nice smoke, starts in your head ends in your toes. Functional PM smoke that has a mild headie at the start that mellowed into a relaxing body high. Was not groggy after smoking at bed time.
Very strong Indica body buzz with a very sweet flowery taste good for insomnia & stress has a very good euphoria kick
Excellent Indica. Definetely feels stronger than what the numbers say! Great smoke for a good body buzz and just to relax.
Got this at Old Toby in Chehalis, WA. See pictures and detailed reviews on my blog the Aging Ent's Tastings -- Brand: Dama Strain: BLUE AFGHANI Indica-dominant Hybrid -- Potency Analysis: TTL 16% THC 1% THCA 15% -- Cost: $15/gram -- this is some serious indica. -- he buds are tight and dense like dama generally produces. When you crack them open, there's a dark purple center and the nuggets are so crystal laden it's like every bud segment is just frozen. -- Sweet, crystally good smoke fills the long and as it expands the blue flavor hits, and it's remarkable. -- The high is heavy and dense. While we were partying, this was the show stopper. We went from smoking 3 more joints and lining up dabs to falling out in our chairs. Such sparkling sweetness is significantly sleepy. -- The numbers on this are low. Numbers don't mean a thing, clearly. This is heavy duty without having a significant THC count, which just goes to show you.
