Someone once said that Afghanistan was a complicated, yet beautiful country that deserved to be explored and enjoyed for all of its terrain and offerings. If this is any example of how beautiful a place it truly is, then we're inclined to agree. Afghan Diesel, full of citrus and sharp pungency, is a variety of the Afghan strain that is as mysterious and intriguing as the place from whence it came. With unknown breeders and its exact makeup undetermined, this daytime high is one in which you just have to enjoy the ride and ask questions later.
As previously mentioned, the exact ratio of indica to sativa is touch and go, however, many believe it is close to 50/50 with a slight lean towards sativa. The THC levels have a pretty swinging sprawl as well, coming in anywhere between 14 to 23%. This plant is covered with dark green leaves and purple buds, giving it a rose-like appearance. The aromas and flavors are strong in citrus with a bold grapefruit overtone. It has a fruity, almost tangy aroma when the buds are broken apart, making it a joy to smoke.
Cerebral in nature, as most sativa-dominant strains are, the high is heady and euphoric from start to finish. The smooth start to your experience can sometimes come off as mild, though it would be a mistake to think you are not 'getting' anything. Enjoy the slow roll as it kicks in, as the tingles start in the back of your head and move through your limbs, warming your core and leaving you totally at ease. Try this bud as a way to get your creative juices flowing and finish up a forgotten art project or get in the kitchen and make a recipe you've been meaning to try.
If you enjoy an upbeat high and find yourself suffering from mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, stress, or bipolar, this is a great strain for you. Its highly stimulating properties lift up the spirit as it eases aches and pains. In addition to these effects, it's highly beneficial to those who suffer from a general lack of appetite or more specifically an eating disorder such as anorexia because of its ability to stimulate the appetite and suppress nausea.
The Afghan plant is a great indoor strain and is relatively easy to care for. Be mindful of topping and pruning, as this will help your Afghan Diesel stay strong and healthy. Because of its powerful diesel aromas, a smell-proof system might be a wise investment.
This hybrid strain boasts sweet and sour aromas, great flavor, and a long-lasting upbeat high. Enjoy it alone or with friends during a morning wake and bake session or an afternoon break. Afghan Diesel will put you in a creative mood, so grab your art supplies and let those juices flow.
