Effects of Pure Afghan Marijuana
As do most landrace indica’s, Pure Afghan takes quite a while before its high kicks in. When it does, its moderate THC level is between 12% and 21% making for a deep, enjoyable relaxation that can feel narcotic though easy to handle. You’ll first notice a weightiness in your head that will slowly diffuse to the rest of your body. Don’t be surprised if your thoughts become imaginative, as this strain is known for triggering some pleasant, lazy introspection. Pure Afghan is a delightful strain that will eventually lead to waves of complete mental and physical peace, with users needing only to close their eyes to feel on top of a cloud. Some have reported experiencing distortions in their sensory perceptions, with a common side effect of time dilation.
Medical Benefits of Pure Afghan Marijuana
Because of its sedative qualities, this is an excellent strain for managing symptoms of stress, depression and different forms of trauma. It works wonders at reducing most types of pain, including those related to arthritis, or injuries. Because users will fall into a deep, restful night of sleep at the end of the high, Pure Afghan can help patients with insomnia.
Growing Pure Afghan Marijuana
Pure Afghan is a great choice for beginner growers as it is pretty difficult to kill. It’ll grow short and bushy, needing regular trimming to allow light and air to reach the lower nodes. When grown outdoors, this strain will yield about 14 ounces, with harvest coming in the middle of October. Indoors, growers can expect 12 ounces per square meter after a flowering period of 7 to 8 weeks.
