Afghan Hawaiian is a Sativa dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% Sativa) strain created as a potent cross between the hugely popular UK Cheese X Lavender strains. This dank bud boasts a moderately high THC level ranging from 18-22% on average and a myriad of both Indica and Sativa effects. Users describe the high as having an immediately uplifting onset that leaves you aroused, creative, and slightly dizzy. You’ll feel happy and euphoric before falling into a state of deep relaxation without loss of functionality. Due to these potent effects, Afghan Hawaiian is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as neurological disorders and spasticity as well as muscle spasms and chronic pain. Afghan Hawaiian buds have small dense round popcorn-shaped neon green nugs with light gold undertones and translucent amber hairs.
These nugs are frosty with a fine layer of thick chunky white trichomes and are sticky with sweet resin. Afghan Hawaiian is probably best known among the cannabis community for its memorable aroma of pungent yet sweet earthy cheese and taste of cheesy licorice with a surprisingly delicious hint of rich caramel.
