Black Afghan Hash (also known as Black Afghani) is a purely indica strain with a solid genetic backbone. This bud is a cross between a landrace Afghan Kush and Sensi Seeds’ colorful Black Domina. It has deep purple hues and the dank, incense-like aroma you’d expect of such a heavy indica. Best suited to a relaxing evening spent indoors, Black Afghan has THC levels measured at between 19% and 24%.
Black Afghan Hash sets itself apart with large, colorful flowers. Surprisingly, these buds adhere in a long, spindly formation more commonly seen in landrace sativas like Thai. The long, wispy leaves twist loosely away from one another, giving these flowers a somewhat ragged appearance. Perhaps most notably, these leaves are more dark purple than green, due to very high concentrations of the pigment anthocyanin, passed on from Black Domina. Bright orange pistils provide visual contrast against these dark leaves while resinous white trichomes make them very sticky to the touch.
When properly cured, Black Afghan’s flowers give off a deep, musky aroma, redolent of damp soil and leaves. A deeper whiff may also pick up on some notes of sour berries. Grinding up or picking apart these feathery flowers, meanwhile, gives off the peppery kick often associated with Afghani. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Black Afghan burns with heavy and pungent smoke that’s likely to trigger coughing or watery eyes. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind lingering flavors of fruit and Black Afghan Hash.
Black Afghan Hash is a complex indica-dominant strain with euphoric and relaxing effects. The flowers develop as jade, pine tree-shaped colas with dark green, nearly black sugar leaves. Black Afghan’s terpene profile is an aromatic mixture of pepper, earth, and sage smothered in dark berries, alluding to the strain’s cerebral and physical effects. This strain’s heady, uplifted buzz and relaxing, munchie-inducing body effects make it perfect for a lazy afternoon.
