This Old Afghan NLD is a 100% indica landrace strain from the northern regions of Afghanistan. Very rarely a sativa phenotype may appear although it is unknown whether this is due to some ancient Afghani genetic material or the result of some distant hybridisation by Sacred Seeds back in the day.
Much more common are the Kandahar and Mazar pheno-types which have differing growth patterns, one taller and the other much stockier. Whichever pheno is grown out these plants develop some very healthy, fat colas which will definitely need some support. The flowering window is anything between 70 - 90 days indoors or in the latter half of October outdoors in northern latitudes. Yields are very high in whichever environment they are grown.
The shorter plants are incredibly odiferous and will certainly require air filters. This pheno has a more narcotic effect. The second pheno is taller with a scent of citrus and old-school hash; this type has a more active and alert effect at the start although it too evolves into a more sedative effect. Whichever is smoked or vaped will deliver high potency.
About Tropical Seeds
Tropical Seeds was born thanks to their founder, Maxi’s idea of creating a project in which a large number of landraces would be grown, studied and bred.
This hard work was done in some large facilities under something very close to a Tropical climate. Some big green houses in the Canary Islands were packed with incredible genetics from different parts of the Globe, containing pure and psychedelic rich cannabis lines.
After a number of years trying iron out some undesirable traits from these unique lines, the dream was eventually realised and a number of strains were created that were perfect to release to market, under the Tropical Seeds brand.
Tropical Seeds work with a clear philosophy in mind; creating new strain options with more strength, vigour and beauty than anything else available on the market. Their research has led them to conclude that growers are becoming bored of the famous strains that have become overbred and dull. Instead, Tropical Seeds want to introduce something new and exciting as often as possible.
Such is the desire from Tropical Seeds to direct their focus onto new projects, the company have actually discontinued some of their older strains. This is a bold move but one of that has paid off, since the popularity of their more recent strains has won them plenty of plaudits within the industry.
There are a number of strain in the Tropical Seeds library that have gained notoriety, in particular Smooth Smoke, an indica strain with a strong structure and dense resin production and Ciskei Regular, a South African strain that can grow perfectly both indoors and outdoors.
If you are searching for something new, exotic and exciting that will constantly leave you surprised, Tropical Seeds will be a great place to start. All of their fantastic strains are available now at Seedsman.
