From high in the mountains around Afghanistan, Pakistan and Northern India come the indica family of Cannabis. This pure Indica seed-strain originates in the Hindu Kush – a mountain range that has been home to legendary cannabis varieties for centuries.
Hindu Kush is your typical indica plant. Huge wide leaves deep green, almost blue in color, and fingers that often overlap each other. Short and stocky in growth habit with lower branches that grow all the way nearly to the top.
Since being brought to the west, these seeds have been selectively bred over many generations, always within their own gene-pool. As a result, Hindu Kush is an excellent variety for indoor crops from seed, producing very consistent and uniform seedlings.
Flower clusters are dense and form all the way along the branches. Extremely heavy resin production, early maturation, and good yields are characteristics of this strain. All this make the Hindu Kush strain a valuable plant for breeders and an important part of many modern hybrids.
Potency is medium-to-high with the mellow, happy body vibration possessed by the classic Indica strains. Hindu Kush also imparts a calm, contemplative mental state, instead of the brain-numbing `stone` of later Indica hybrids.
