Most every smoker has his or her favorite marijuana strain, but for a little while in early 2015, something special was going on with a type of cannabis called Afghan Kush. Tight, fragrant buds, lots of red hairs. It was said to be an indica, which it must have been due to the full-brain feeling — not a strain for getting much work done. Great for sleep, pain, and TV. The strain was locally grown or perhaps came from California or Colorado. Several dispensaries in town carried it. When they did, it sold out quickly. By mid-spring, it was all gone.
"Got any Afghan Kush?" we'd ask repeatedly at the places that previously carried it.
"No," would come the response, always with a knowing smile.
"Do you have anything like Afghan Kush?"
"No, there's nothing like it," budtenders at two different dispensaries said.
So far, so true. Harvest time can't be too far away, though.Found at various Arizona dispensaries
