Hindu Kush is an Indica strain with potent sedative effects. It’s embraced by medical marijuana users who want pain relief and recreational users who want to kick back.
Originally found in the Hindu Kush mountain range along the Pakistan-Afghan border, this cannabis strain probably came to North America in the 1960s or ’70s along a route that has been called the “hippie trail.” Later it became the base for well-known hybrids that include OG Kush and Mango Kush).
Hindu Kush’s big dense green buds are Indica traits, and its fine coating of silvery-white trichomes makes it a strain embraced by hash producers. Hindu Kush has an earthy aroma and taste reminiscent of sandalwood, or an herbal incense with spicy notes.
Its classic Indica effects begin with deep relaxation followed by a sense of euphoria. It’s best used to wind down at night.
Medical marijuana users value its strong, physically sedating effects, helping with various kinds of pain and gastrointestinal issues. It can also ease nausea and stimulate appetite.
