Meet the heavy-hitting White Afghan. This indica-dominant hybrid plant is not for the faint of heart or for those sensitive to the narcotic properties found in today’s high-grade medical cannabis.
In Chalice Farms’ endless pheno-hunt, we sprouted 15 of her seeds, grew them to full maturity, weeding out the males along the way. In the end, we decided to propagate the phenome you can now find at any of our fine dispensary locations around the Portland area.
White Afghan’s lineage is handed down from the classic hybrid White Widow, crossed with the original, highly potent indica – Afghani. This specialized breeding of two elite cannabis plants produces a terpene profile that is saturated with myrcene. At around 2600 PPM, myrcene is known to have powerful analgesic properties, relieving pain in all shapes and forms. Myrcene is also useful in reducing inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, inflammation in the gastrointestinal system and others. It also has anti-spasmodic properties that can help reduce seizures for medical patients. And finally, myrcene can be helpful for those who suffer from insomnia and the long sleepless nights that accompanies it.
My personal favorite way to enjoy White Afghan is to first, not have many important tasks that require focus in the upcoming 2-3 hours. Second, burn the flower using a lit strand of hemp string (instead of typical butane lighter), directly through a water pipe filled with cool water and if possible, ice. For patients who vaporize their medication, use a medium to high temperature vaporizer for the same effect. Third, inhale deeply, but not to the point that is uncomfortable; the smoke will inevitably expand in your lungs. Finally, exhale slowly through your nose. Notice the difference from White Afghan’s pungent, earthy taste on the inhale, and her extremely sweet and fruity nose on the tail end. And that, my friends, is why it is my true pleasure to introduce the White Afghan.
