A traditional domesticate from Balkh, the hashish heartland of northern Afghanistan, a crucial centre of cannabis culture and biodiversity.

This is a resinous and heavily branched strain with intense aromas ranging from citrus and lime to pine, sandlewood, and burnt rubber. Semi-dwarf, often with almost spherical architecture.

As with all resin cultigens, expect to find chemotypes ranging from THC- to CBD-dominant, as well as other cannabinoids such as THCV.

This accession differs from the very large north Afghan strain sold by Real Seed Co as Mazar-i-Sharif.

Highly recommend to breeders. Essential for collectors.

NOTE: A recent test on three exceptional plants from a small grow of this accession in New England showed alleged THC levels ranging from 14% to 24%. This would be unusual for a pristine first-generation Afghan plant. It’s not yet clear what explains these results, but most likely an unreliable lab. Nevertheless, collectors should be aware that a potential explanation for such high THC levels is that this population may have been affected by introduced hybrids. That said, more likely this is simply an exceptionally potent Afghan domesticate.
