Info: Afghani CBD is a high CBD indica strain of the landrace indica Afghani grown by one of Canada’s licensed producers Tilray. Named after its geographic origin, Afghani CBD has very mild cerebral effects (due to a low THC content) but a relaxing therapeutic body stone to help with pain, insomnia and stress disorders. This strain was a 2015 Canadian Cannabis Award winner (second place) for the “Top Strains under 10% THC”.
The Afghani CBD strain is one of the top-rated medical marijuana strains used to combat a variety of health ailments. It has a high CBD percentage, which means that it possesses lots of Cannabidiol, the cannabinoid responsible for its anti-inflammatory and anti-pain effects. Although the Afghani CBD indica strain contains an abundance of CBD, it also contains enough THC to leave you feeling great, but the strain is not overpowering.
The Afghani CBD cannabis strain was originally created by a famous Canadian breeder known as Canadian LP Tilray. They created the Afghani CBD weed strain by cross-breeding different types of landrace Afghani indica varients. Experts think that the original Afghani strain has a direct and unbroken lineage going back to the actual strain grown in Central Asia.
Afghani CBD indica is known for its beautiful effects on the human body and brain. If a person were to describe the strain with one word, they would probably say therapeutic. Its potent medicinal properties will leave you feeling incredibly relaxed. It is also likely to leave you feeling sleepy, so if you struggle with insomnia, then this is the herb strain for you. Outside of the aforementioned effects, it is also known to make you feel happy, euphoric, and even a bit giggly.
With regard to the strain’s purely medicinal effects, it is typically taken to combat stress. Stress can have extremely detrimental effects on your body; however, this strain will alleviate your stress almost completely, leaving you feeling calm and carefree. Afghani CBD is also known to combat inflammation of all kinds, especially joint swelling such as arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Light to moderate pain and muscle spasms are yet another set of issues regularly treated with Afghani CBD. If you suffer from any of these health ailments, then you have to try this phenomenal weed strain.
People living with PTSD are known to benefit from taking Afghani CBD. If you are unfamiliar with PTSD, it is commonly referred to as post-traumatic stress disorder. The disorder is usually the result of extremely traumatic events affecting a person, such as a car accident, loss of a loved one, active military duty, or other tragic situations. Thankfully, Afghani CBD is known to relieve many of the symptoms of PTSD, such as depression, stress, anxiety, and insomnia. If you have PTSD then be sure to discuss this marijuana strain with your doctor as they can advise you on where to buy it and how much of it to take.
Sample submitted: “CBD Afghani” cannabis flowers indica.
Visual Inspection: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
Moisture Content: 4.9%
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
Cannabis Potency Summary Table:
Three tests of each sample were analyzed and summarised below:
% by weight
THC-Acid (not activated)
*THC total (THC-Acid THC)
CBD-Acid (not activated)
*CBD total (CBD-Acid CBD)
CBG-Acid (not activated)
*CBG total (CBG-Acid CBG)
Activated Cannabinoid Total:
- when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
