Not too long ago, Las Vegas dispensaries opened their doors to customers. Now people can buy marijuana, but they use it in the privacy of their home. The city of lights or the city of sin, depending on perspective, is yet another city to allow cannabis sales.
For a long time, marijuana has received bad raps. Some of it may very well be true, as the bad reputation must have stemmed from some truths. As a result, people, in general, ignore the potential of cannabis. Most fail to see its benefits.
Some people like the mental alertness it brings, or the surge of energy that fills their body. Others may prefer the incredible relaxation they feel, an effect induced by Afghanica. Unsurprisingly, this strain has unbelievable medical uses.
Nowadays, among the first things that come to mind about Afghanistan, is the Taliban. We can thank the news media for that as that is all they are reporting. But ask any cannabis user what their thoughts are. Almost everyone would speak about the landrace strains in that region.
Of the different varieties of strain there, one of them is now called Afghani No. 1.
So, what is unique about this strain?
For one, it is one of the best Indicas in the world. Another is that it is the parent strain of Afghanica. As such, the offspring inherited many of her incredible traits.
By the way, Afghanica is also called by another name – Kabul Baba.

The extreme sedative-like body high of Afghanica makes it useful in managing depression. Not only does it make users feel happy, but it is also calming and relaxing. As its effects fade, drowsiness sets in.
On the one hand, it is useful in boosting the appetite. But because the strain causes people to feel lazy and locked on the couch, it is hard to get up and eat. As a result, most people end up sleeping.
