I absolutely LOVE Afghan or Afghani, and I think there is a slight difference. Talk about mouth watering, sour dank, smells like Jamaica and salt misted old wool rugs. Citrusy, heady. I have seeds coming to put in the greenhouse. Ground up it was a goldenish color and tacky thick with resin.
For me it is super hard to say what strain is el numero uno, but I find the more indicas or more sativas or the older landraces crosses work. The newer hybrids just do not work for me. I get nada from say Ice Cream Cake or Gelato but give me a hit of Durban or Lambs Breath and I am a happy camper and it is not a THC thing. My theory is in the terpenes and the dilution through crossing strains in highly controlled situations.
For the record, I am a HORRIBLE judge of how strong cannabis is to tell others. I have an insane tolerance level, due mainly to the fact that if I don’t smoke I can’teat. I have a load of chronic GI issues and it keeps the nausea away and actually gives me an appetite. Also, I am an athlete, so I look for any strain that will give me a body high. Apart from endurance sports I have been doing some hardcore bodybuilding for last year and I stopped all arthritis meds, so I need the pain relief. I like a nice strong indica before bed. I have be careful with sativas as I am high energy and they can give me restless legs.
Strains I grew last year and my take:
Wedding Cake: big nope for me but all my friends and family love it
Grape Ape bagseed: Nice grapey bedtime smoke
Lemon Haze: oooh la la for wake and bake and sex
Blueberry X Big Bud: great for general aches and pains
Critical Mass: perfect for 100% pain relief and all day use bu warning - two days post tolerance break my husband was flat laid out on the floor, after throwing up, having blazed one 70mm joint, and I thought he had the high tolerance.
They say try and hang with Snoop or Willie. I say try and hang with this girl!
