Afghan Kush is a notorious landrace strain that has roots in the Hindu Kush mountain ranges, specifically on the border of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. This powerhouse of an indica that we have all come to know and love in Canada is a result of hundreds of years of perseverance by the original phenotype which constantly evolved and developed traits such as abnormally higher THC concentrations and cold resistance to help survive the rough climates of the region. Many breeders attribute Afghan Kush as one of the Godfathers of most modern indica strains, acting as the genetic “backbone” responsible for lots of the relaxing effects found in typical indica flowers. This heavy-hitting indica is most cherished for its’ resinous buds and high THC levels, which tends to average out around 18%, making it one of the choice strains by locals in the Hindu Kush mountain regions for hash such as Charas and Afghani Hash. There should be no surprise that the substantial THC yield of Afghan Kush correlates to the extremely powerful, relaxing and sedating high. An excellent choice for relaxing after work, users report the high as beginning with a very cheery and euphoric buzz that is accompanied by laughter and hunger which then slowly transitions into a dream-like, relaxed state. One of the most peculiar attributes of Afghan Hash specifically, are its’ rare, distinct aroma and flavour profile. The strain is known for its’ earthier base notes and undertones of a pungent hash, dank gas/fuel and hints of fresh pine
Bred by California based Cookies Fam Genetics, Gushers (also referred to as Fruit Gushers or White Gushers) is an indica-dominant hybrid that is a cross between Triangle Kush and Gelato #41. It is no surprise that it shares a name with the gummy fruit snack of our childhood as it bursts with a sweet and fruity scent that will have you reaching for that bag of candy. With undertones of sour tropical fruit, herbs, and cookies, the flavor largely matches the smell. Sporting bright green buds, amber hairs, and hints of purple, these nugs aren’t afraid of showing off. While not known to be a particularly potent strain, Gushers have been tested at THC levels ranging from 15-25% so be sure to check the labels so that the potency matches the experience that you’re seeking. Users report both a euphoric head high as well as a relaxing body high which makes it perfect to either lift your spirits during the daytime or unwind with a good movie after a long day.
About This Strain ICE, also known as Indica Crystal Extreme, is an indica-leaning hybrid with a legendary lineage, blending Skunk #1, White Widow, Northern Lights, and Shiva. Originally created by Nirvana Seeds, ICE is known for its overwhelming trichrome production, making this heavily frosted strain the ideal candidate for hash producers. As its name indicates, this strain often takes on the appearance of an ice sculpture, glistening from the staggering amount of resin that coats a well-balanced ratio of flowers and leaves. Giving off a strong aroma of diesel mixed with sweet and floral undertones, ICE is reported to produce euphoric and uplifting effects despite its indica-dominant lineage.
