Coming from the Northern regions of Afghanistan this indica-dominant hash strain is known for its sedative effects and will give an all-around mood boost when consumed. This type of hash has a very soft texture and it is recommended to store it in a cool, dry location. The hashish is worked on until it becomes highly elastic and has a strong aromatic smell. Traditionally the product rolled into a ball for storage (as a round ball has the least contact with air), however, before being shipped, the hash is pressed into slabs for ease of transport. The best quality of Afghan hashes are signed with the stem of the producing family.
