Hindu Kush is a pure indica marijuana strain native to the local regions between Pakistan and Afghanistan. This strain is one of the original landrace strains that precipitated the popularization of cannabis throughout the world. The harsh climate of its homeland has conditioned this strain to express a thick, protective coat of crystal trichomes cherished by hash makers worldwide. Additionally, the potent indica is prized for its heavy sedative effects and resinous flowers.
Flavour, Effects and Aroma
Upon exhale, Hindu Kush begins with a sense of physical relaxation that progresses toward a state of mental fogginess. Users will feel a heavy sensation in the body and may not want to be especially active. The feeling of couch-lock when using this strain is commonly reported. For this reason, the heavy indica is recommended for night time use.
The aroma of this strain is very complex, with a sweet, musky scent, redolent of spice, sandalwood and pine. Moreover, its skunky, earthy flavour has a sweet and flowery exhale of herbs and spices. The flavour of its creamy smoke covers your taste buds with hints of spicy-sweet pine and lemony citrus.
Thanks to its long-lasting effects, Hindu Kush is effective for treating chronic pain, anxiety, nausea and insomnia. Its indica buzz brings complete, full-body and mind relaxation that melts you into a puddle of euphoric bliss. Furthermore, the strain can make those with a complete lack of appetite very hungry, making it perfect for appetite stimulation.
