Tips for Growing Afghan Kush Cannabis

This article is presented by Advanced Nutrients, a global company raising the bud weights and reputations of cannabis growers since 1999.

Strain overview: Afghan Kush has been around since long before the modern cannabis industry. It comes from the Hindu Kush mountain range and has been made available through the help of White Label Seeds. Centuries of selective breeding have gone into creating this plant that was designed for producing charas (a form of hashish). Afghan Kush has often been used in breeding projects, and is considered a baseline for indica exploration.

Grow techniques: Growing clones of this short-in-stature plant through the SOG (sea of green) method will result in a quick turnaround. Crop out anything that isn’t going to produce and let the big colas thrive. Try a hydroponic setup to maximize Afghan Kush’s yield and potency.
