Afghan Haze is a Sativa-dominant strain that provides an excellent dose of mental energy combined with a mellow body high and some pain-relieving properties. In other words, it does what good Hybrids should: it represents the best of both species. Although not the most fragrant strain, it does have a sweet and earthy aroma that many enthusiasts find pleasant.
The name of Afghan Haze might give you the image of a contemplative evening walk in the desert, and this potent marijuana might just put you in that state of mind. It’s a 60-40 Sativa-dominant Hybrid which will please enthusiasts with a combination of airy cerebral effects and numbing bodily relaxation.
With an average of 19-21% THC, it’s quite powerful, if not freakishly so. Novice smokers should definitely handle this cannabis with care. Its parents are the reputable Afghani Indica and Haze Sativa.
Consumers smoking this weed will first experience a euphoric, clear headrush, complete with spiraling thoughts and a sense of energy. As the high continues, a trademark cannabis comfort descends, marked by a warm, cozy body high.
Depending on the smoker’s disposition, this cannabis will result in either a creative, comfortable state of mind or deep sleep.
Afghan Haze has an unconventional smell that reminds consumers of all kinds of things. Some people report the smell of tea, others say it smells like spice, and still others notice a floral sweetness.
Regardless, most find it to be a highly pleasant aroma, which translates into a heady, reasonably smooth smoke. The buds themselves are less unusual: forest green, amber trichomes, moderately sticky.
