Afghan Haze is a creation of breeders Scott Blakey (a.k.a, Shantibaba) and the late Nevile Schoenmakers, and currently cultivated by Blakey’s Mr. Nice Seeds in Amsterdam. This hybrid strain was bred by crossing an Afghani landrace with pollen from a Haze male with Thai and Columbian origins. According to the breeder, Afghan Haze produces copious yields of light green flower with milky trichomes and amber-colored stigmas in a 70-day flowering period. Suitable for either indoor or outdoor grows, though preferably grown in a hydroponic or greenhouse setting, expert-level cultivators can expect harvests ranging between 350 to 450 grams per square meter indoors; or 350 to 450 grams, or 12 to 16 ounces, per plant outdoors. Mr. Nice Seeds recommends Afghan Haze for medicinal use, noting that the strain tends to produce pain-relieving effects. Some users have reported a nutty, earthy aroma that translates into a flavor of herbaceous tea and skunk. One sample of Afghan Haze, analyzed by the cannabis testing laboratory Analytical 360, had a terpene profile with a heavy presence of alpha-pinene, limonene, and caryophyllene.
