Default Afghan Haze Smoke Report

After going through about 40+ of these and SSSDH I have narrowed it down to the top 8 or so Afghans hazes. Over the next few grows I am going to document them here for my info and hopefully your enjoyment!! At the end I will do a poll and see which ones YOU GUYS like best if you care to vote...

Ok heeeeeere we go...

Ripping open this nug I am instantly drawn to it's aroma. Spicy, medicine-like, incense, pine...not in a kush way...but an old school hazey kind of way, also it has some kind of jungle fruityness that is VERY hard to describe. It has the old school hazeyness that I miss when I think about Amsterdam but it's expressed in a new way!! I would not say this bud reeks or is overly pungent, but it has a NICE aroma. This is NOT SSH and I am glad for the change. I am so sick of people just renaming SSH over here and thinking we won't notice.

I always think to myself while im smoking this, "Man, this bud has ABSOLUTELY no business being here...its fuckin JUNGLE bud!!" LOL LOL

It has some very interesting traits appearance wise. I like the bud shape, it is sativa looking, but not overly foxtailed like the Cheese. This pheno has smaller denser nugs that are silver with the longer, more reddish pistils. As I break the buds up to grind them, it reminds me of being in Amsterdam, breaking up similar nug on the bar of the Dampkring. The resin glands of this bud are so Sativa in profile...they stand tall and have clear heads just like the high you get. The buds leave piles of Sativa dust on the table where you break it up just like a good haze should.

Post grind...

The aroma reminds me of BP OG with its medicine and hash smells, but this is mos def haze dominant.

The dry hit of the joint is surprisingly fruity, with less of the haze influence in flavor rather than aroma. This weed is smooth. I would not say this pheno has TONS of flavor but what it has is very nice. It straight up tastes like smoking Sativa hash. I am not tasting fruit at all now that the joint is lit...instead I am tasting the what I call the typical Haze flavors. Spicyness, medicine, wood incense maybe cedar or pine.

The high is...well....i'm not high, yet...

This is some good old fashioned creeper. One minute you are reaching for another jar and then you realize you have already cleaned your house and car...LOL! Once this buds high kicks in...you are in for a treat...this is the kind of high I really enjoy because of its CLARITY. I can function perfectly but I am soaring high. It's so funny cause at first you are like, why am I NOT high...LOL and then you notice that things are different. It's not like BAM...it actually creeps on you. This is so unlike most of the product from the Indica laden market that I deal with...people who grow for money just WON'T grow this shit.

As I near the end of the joint the flavor is stronger than when it began. Still, hazey with not even a hint of the fruit that was lurking in the aroma. I am officially high as well. Straight up behind the eyeballs kind of thing. No body buzz at all!!

Well, this one has made it to the final round for a reason...it is truly unique amongst the weeds I have grown and smoked over the course of my life. It has great potency, flavor and aroma. It finishes in 9-9.5 weeks. It is a tiny yeilder but then again my rooms are far from perfect (something I am working on every day to remedy.)

To be continued....

Man, you did a great job with that. That looks fantastic. Very well grown and not overripe from the looks of it. Nice pics too, you can double click them and get in close for a good look.

I want me some jungle bud.

Well they came from my #2 pheno which was one of the most frosty of the bunch, and smoked really well in the initial tests.

I really only had one "Afghani"ish plant...all of them were tall, seductive, kickass hazey ladies!! Selection has been truly a nightmare!!!


Thanks everybody!!! More to come!!

I had the same results with the packs that I've run, haze dominant plants with little structural influance from the afghan. IMO the afghan tempered the high by creating a nice relaxing effect on the come down. I've run several of the MNS haze hybrids and I really enjoy the AH for its taste and effect. As hard as it may be to choose one as being the best, I think the AH is my favorite so far.

Great job with your grow and smoke report!

So did you decide not to keep any of the SSSDH? It sounded like it had been knocked out of consideration in favor of the 8 af/hz phenos, is that right?

The afghan haze sure is an interesting variety.
