Hindu Kush

Hindu Kush, sometimes called Afghanica, is an indica strain of cannabis named after the mountain range stretching 500 miles between Pakistan and Afghanistan. According to Leafly: "a truly pure indica, it is known for being surprisingly potent for a non-hybrid strain. Slightly harsh when smoked it leaves a calm, active mental state different than that of other indicas".[1]

In his review for High Times, Danny Danko wrote: "Pure indicas tend to knock people out, but Sensi’s famous Hindu Kush has a more desirable zesty quality to it, as well as a rich, hashy smoke that tickles the nose and enlightens the senses. This odiferous strain has a super-short flowering time, coupled with the ablity to start filling out right away for big, fast yields. Great for beginners and experts alike, Hindu Kush is known for its pungent notes of sweetness followed by hints of sandalwood, which distinguish it from the Kush we know and love in the USA."[2]

Sensi Seeds describes the strain as "a classic, definitive indica sometimes referred to as 'Afghanica,' with the characteristic wide, dark green leaves and strong branching that make it an excellent building block for serious and hobbyist breeders".[2]


In 2014, High Times included Hindu Kush in their list of the "25 Greatest Strains of All Time".[3]
