Afghan Kush Feminized Growing Information

Afghan Kush is an indica cannabis strain originating from the famous Hindu Kush mountain range along the Afghan-Pakistan border. It’s known for its heavy yields of resinous buds that deliver a deep body stone effect cherished by indica enthusiasts.

First introduced by Dutch seedbanks, Afghan Kush is a favorite among indica lovers. It produces a classic “indica stone” marked by deep sedation and intense physical relaxation, making it perfect for unwinding after a long day. Its strong physical effects make it less suitable for productivity; instead, Afghan Kush is known to induce happiness, laziness, and a strong appetite. It typically has an average THC concentration of around 17%.

Medical users find Afghan Kush appealing for its potent physical effects. It provides fast and effective relief from pain and is commonly used by patients suffering from insomnia or stress.

Afghan Kush offers a unique aromatic and flavor profile. It has a woody and earthy taste with subtle spicy and herbal undertones, reminiscent of traditional hashish. This is fitting since Afghan Kush has a long history of being used in the production of Black Afghan and Charas hash varieties.

Growing Information:

Through natural selection, we have the perfect Afghan Kush, brought to us today by the White Label Seed Company, a partner of Sensi Seeds in the Netherlands. These growers made Afghan Kush accessible to all.

Growers appreciate how robust Afghan Kush has become after generations of natural selection. It thrives even in adverse temperature conditions with minimal expertise. However, a bit of skill can significantly increase its yield. Gentle pruning, for example, can encourage the branches to reach their full potential.

Growing clones of this compact plant using the SOG (sea of green) method ensures a rapid turnaround. Remove anything that won’t produce and allow the large colas to thrive. Consider a hydroponic setup to maximize Afghan Kush’s yield and potency.

Flowering Time: 5-7 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Easy to moderate

Climate: Maintain temperatures between 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Watch out for moisture levels to prevent mold.

Indoor/Outdoor: Afghan Kush performs well in both indoor and outdoor settings, but watch for mold in humid conditions.
Feeding: This indica benefits from heavy feeding. Maintaining plant strength with micronutrients helps prevent pests and mold from affecting the dense colas.


  • All Cannabis strains, require a full spectrum nutrient complete with the macro nutrients such as Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium and the secondary nutrients and micronutrients like, calcium, sulphur, hydrogen, magnesium, manganese, carbon, iron, zinc etc.
  • For coco/perlite grows, we recommend Nutrifield Coco A&B for use throughout the entire grow, with Nutrifield Organic BUD BURST at the beginning of the flowering phase right through to harvest.  As bud burst is organic, this ensures a nice smooth, super clean tasting smoke that you will love!
  • For soil based growing (not recommended), just make sure you use a high quality soil rich in organic matter such as compost and manure.   Note that manure if high in nitrogen which you’ll want to reduce during the flowering stage. 
  • During the flowering stage, change the ratio so you are using up to three times more phosphorus than nitrogen and potassium. Also continue to add in secondary nutrients such as iron, copper, and manganese.  The best way to do this is simply to use orgnanic Bud Burst during flowering all the way as this will ensure a smooth finish with no chemical taste.   Amazing stuff!
  • For organic grows, we recommend Aptus Baseboost organic nutrient   with coco/perlite 70/30 ratio.   This stuff is highly concentrated so a little goes a long way making it great value.     Simply add the pellets to the coco as per the instructions and it will completely transform any inert growing medium into a powerful full spectrum grow media.. 

Growing Tips

  • Your plants will need consistent air flow and good ventilation, whether you are choosing the perfect spot for an outdoor grow, or are growing in an indoor grow room. They need air that is rich in oxygen, to help prevent respiration, deter any pests, and allow your plant to grow healthy and strong. Use fans to help circulate air, or if you can afford it, exhaust systems are an excellent choice.

Why buy ‘Feminized’ Seeds

  • Marijuana plants are either male or female.   The male flower produces sacs or pollen designed to fertilize the female flower which produces white pistols designed to absorb the pollen.   If no male plants are present in the growing area, than the female plant will just grow larger and larger flowers in search of pollen.   These flowers are the cannabis buds that we all know and love.   The male plants hold only minuscule amount of THC, while the female flowers are oozing with THC crystals (the good stuff).   For this reason, marijuana growers are seeking only female plants in the grow room (unless they want alot of seedy buds).Feminsed seeds have been cultivated in a precise way so that the seed is genetically more likely to produce a female plant.   Autoflower seeds automatically transition from the vegetative phase to the flowering stage without you needing to adjust their light exposure.   Fore more detailed growing information, see our in depth grow guide.
