Afghan Purple Kush is the offspring of Afghan Kush and Purple Kush, both pure indicas. That means Afghan Purple Kush has a Sativa/Indica ratio of roughly 0:100. THC can be quite concentrated in this strain, with maximum levels exceeding 21%. CBD contents, meanwhile, are much lower than 1%, so this strain shouldn’t be used to treat epilepsy or other conditions that require CBD. The body high is deeply calming and relaxing and can be helpful in treating anxiety, muscle spasms, and pain.
Afghan Purple Kush tastes like pine, with a strong woody flavor. It smells earthy and fragrant, like pine needles. Side effects aren’t widely reported, but dry mouth is typically the most likely, along with dry eyes and paranoia. Despite its popular heritage, this strain is relatively obscure. It may occasionally appear on the black market but is more likely found on the legal medical market in California. Its lack of popularity belies its potency, which can be enough to knock back even experienced users. Patients looking for an intense body high should give this strain a try if they can find it.
