Original Afghani #1 is another cannabis strain brought to the world courtesy of Sacred Seeds in the 1970s. It is a traditional land-race cannabis and an early example in the west of a stable, true-breeding indica that has since been used in many breeding programmes. This indica is a hardy plant that is well-known for producing dense, resinous buds that are excellent for the production of traditional hashish. In the last 4 decades or more it has become acclimatised to growing outdoors in the USA and in Europe by highly selective breeding which successfully fixed more favourable traits such as resin production and early flowering.
The Sensi Seed Bank is just one of many that has used this strain extensively to create some wonderful indica-dominant cannabis strains. Vigorous in vegetative growth it remains a squat plant with a very strong stem that protects it against the wind. It has a very strong, rich aroma which is quite unmistakable. As a true-breeding, classic indica it provides very reliable breeding stock.
