Afghan Haze is the result of fertilising an Afghan female with pollen from a Haze plant. It is a unique blend of two strains from opposite ends of the cannabis spectrum. With careful pheno-typical selection this is a fantastic therapeutic strain for medical provision.
Afghan Haze was originally conceived by Neville Schoenmakers at The Seedbank in Holland in the early 1990s. Due to the Haze influence it is not recommended as a strain with which to start your growing career; rather it requires some know-how on the part of the cultivator and especially in the realm of selecting the best mother plants for the grower's needs.
It is not the heaviest-yielding plant and neither is it the quickest to flower but it does have quality on its side. Indoors growers will harvest 350 - 450 gr/m2 in 10 weeks of flowering. Outdoors cultivators will be able to crop about 350 - 450 gr/plant with harvest time occurring in mid-October in northern latitudes. This harvest time would rule out those regions/areas where rain and humidity could be a problem at this time of year - it is better cultivated outdoors in Mediterranean climates. The effects of poorer weather can be obviated to an extent with greenhouse cultivation.
Afghan Haze is highly recommended for medicinal usage especially for pain relief.

About Mr Nice Seedbank
Howard Marks and Shantibaba, the men who created Mr Nice Seedbank, met during the late 1990's while living and working in Holland. In 1995, Shantibaba had set up the Greenhouse Seed Company. Coincidentally, at the same time, Howard was released from a lengthy imprisonment in the USA.
During the next few years, the two became very good friends and discussed the possibility of working together. They decided to start a seed company to help growers throughout the world.
In 1998, Shantibaba sold his interest in the Greenhouse Seed Company and, as a sole trader, set up Mr Nice Seedbank, which has always been and remains a Dutch company. He established Mr Nice Seedbank, with its forty parent plants, to make strains and seeds available to all levels of growers in order to help them spread the genetic diversity of cannabis.
Rather than joining any seed companies' bandwagon by merely chasing money, Mr Nice Seedbanks dedicated their efforts to make old and new world seeds available for growers. They did not care how many seeds they sold or whether they had a profile in the limelight.
In 1999, Dutch law changed and no longer permitted the production of seeds. However, selling seeds imported from another country remained legal. Mr Nice wanted to fulfil their project without breaking any country's laws. Accordingly, they moved growing operations to Switzerland, where the law permits growing cannabis for seed production. Many Dutch seed companies lost plants, mother rooms, and seed crops, but in Switzerland, Mr Nice seed production blossomed.
Mr Nice Seedbank has consistently maintained a visible presence on various helpdesks, directly interacting, testing, and researching with the growers of its products. Their aim is to help people, wherever they are, who have worked or intend to work with any of their product.
