Kandahar Regular Cannabis Seeds by Afghan Selection

Kandahar cannabis seeds by Afghan Selection is one of the latest of 2 releases from this genuine Afghani weed seed company who have been long celebrated for their work in sourcing weed seeds for the genuine landrace Afghan cannabis from across Afghanistan. These seeds are regulars and for a limited time only come in packs of 15 as opposed to the regular 12s.

The Kandahar is one of the latest landrace cannabis strains offered by Afghan Selection native to the Kandahar region in the south of the country. Growers operating in a legal environment can often expect abundant yields and dense cola’s that typically produce pungent musky aromas; studded with oily and earthy scents as opposed to the fruity, nutty terpene profiles that are more commonplace in the north of the country. This cultivar is well-known for producing ‘black hash‘ that has long been a tradition in the country’s hashish production and is still made in tons every year. The genetics in this landrace lend a hand in the plants growing bushy with dark broad leaves that tend to be significantly shorter and denser than most afghan landraces.

Notwithstanding their natural growing environment, these genetics are equally well suited to indoor growing techniques but they are likely to be more resilient to the elements than the majority of hybrids.

Due to the nature of landraces, all Afghan Selections genetics are Indica dominant cultivars that provide potent sedative effects.

Afghan Selection is the only cannabis seed company on PureSativa based in Afghanistan, and Afghanistan is home to Afghanica cannabis meaning this is the only place on our site to buy true Afghanistan Landraces. With their knowledge of cannabis, their close relationship with the geography of Afghanistan, the Afghan Selection team has curated an array of true landrace cannabis from every angle of this fascinating country. Intense, dark, dank indica strains with incredible hashy terpene profiles are always cherished at the Puresativa family, and we are beyond excited to provide authentic Afghani cannabis seeds for sale to our customers.

‘Kandahar Pendi Landrace’ Okra

EFN EXCLUSIVE. If you’ve struggled with growing okra in the past, this may be the okra for you. As opposed to most named varieties, which are bred for uniformity, this is a diverse landrace population. Plants may produce green, red, pink, or white pods, which may be long, short, fat, or thin. Most will be slightly spiny, which okra’s characteristic invisible spines (best harvested with gloves). The seeds of some plants have very high oil content. Originally collected by the little-known but prolific USDA agricultural explorer E.E. Smith in 1954, “pendi” is not a cultivar name, but simply the name for okra in one of the many local languages used in Kandahar (note the similarity to “bhindi,” the Hindi word for okra). If you want to try your hand at plant breeding, using a diverse population like this is a great way to start. Given Kandahar’s location at roughly 3000 feet above sea level, this okra is well worth trying in places where the common varieties of okra often refuse to grow. You may have losses in your first year, but as you save seed through the years you will develop your own landrace!

These seeds were grown by Dusty Hinz and Zach Binsfeld in Minnesota.
