During the 1960s and early 1970s, the best hashish in the world was purchased in tea-houses in Afghanistan. Its resin was sticky, its colour and texture were pure, its tangy taste was as sweet as honey from heaven, and its high was a dreamer´s paradise. The country´s ruler, King Saber Shah, loved it. In 1973, the king was ousted. In 1979, the Russians invaded, and the country´s troubles deteriorated. So did the hashish, which soon became a clumsy mixture of a variety of resins from different plants, idly and slovenly screened, and held together by animal fat. I first smuggled Afghan hashish in 1970. For reasons I never fully understood, we referred to it over the phone as Nordle. The contents of this packet are designed to bring those forgotten wonders of the 1960s into your grow-rooms and into your consciousness.
Heritage: Afghan skunk
Category: The Naturals – Old school genetics
Family of breed: 50% Afghan, 50 % Skunk#1
Breeder: Nevil and Shantibaba
Preferred medium: Bio and Hydro, Indoors and outdoors/greenhouse
Expected yield: Due to its Afghan origins and the particular parent plants one would expect between 500-750 grams per square meter
Flowering period: Indoor flowering we found certain plants finishing in 6 weeks but this was extreme…what would be normal would be 7-9 weeks. Grown outside in the Northern Hemisphere early to mid October but watch out for rains…and mould. In the Southern Hemisphere March or early April would be expected.
Recommendations: For the inexperienced growers to the most advanced. Especially for greenhouse growers worldwide or short outdoor seasons.
Special Notes: This hybrid is probably one of the most consistently good alrounders.It has diverse uses and since it was named by Howard as a tribute to the good old days…well what more is there to add?
