Afghan Lemon, An Exceptionally Savory Hash Plant
The best phenotype of one of the best hash plants of all time.
The Afghan Lemon is a highly refined and stabilized phenotype of Balkh Hashplant. That legendary Afghan Landrace has been used for hundreds of years for making some exceptional hashish.
In 2019, While doing a preservation run with the Balkhi, the Khalifa team found an outstanding lemony phenotype. That stand-out plant was frostier than most and had an incredible flavor profile. Khalifa Genetics has then stabilized that unique phenotype for over 2 years to turn it into a true breeding strain.
Therefore, the Afghan lemon consistently produces flavorful lemon-scented plants. It will delight growers with robust, easy-to-grow plants with resinous buds.
When touching the flowers, the resin on your fingers leaves a strong lemony/hashy smell that lingers for several minutes. The taste is also a delicious blend of Lemon and old school Hashish.
Unlike most lemony hybrids, the Afghan Lemon’s smell is fresh and natural. It is very different from that candy/chemical lemon scent that many California strains have.
Its super smooth smoke quickly brings about a strong body stone effect. Although it is potent and long-lasting, the effect isn’t overwhelming but rather pleasant and relaxing.
Squat and Sturdy
The Afghan Lemon is a true Afghanica which produces bushy plants with incredibly sturdy stems. Therefore, the plants never need support and can withstand strong winds.
As with most Afghan cultivars, good airflow is essential to prevent mold. Indeed, the buds can be quite dense and heavy. This pure Indica can thrive with minimal care and doesn’t stretch much.
For these reasons, this fruity IBL is robust and beginner-friendly.
The Balkh province is home to some of the best sieved hashish in the world such as the famous “Milk of Mazar” and the “Old Golden One”.
The Afghan Lemon is therefore the cream of the crop. It is one of the best expressions of one of the best hash plants in the world!
