What is Hindu Kush?
Hindu Kush is a pure indica strain named after the mountain range stretching 500 miles between Pakistan and Afghanistan where it originated. The harsh climate of its homeland has conditioned this strain to express a thick, protective coat of crystal trichomes cherished by hash makers worldwide. With a subtle sweetand earthy sandalwood aroma, Hindu Kush induces a deep sense of calm that helps bring relief to those suffering pain, nausea, and stress disorders.

Hindu Kush is as Indica as it gets. This pure strain is from the Kush mountain region, which spans 500 miles between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
A great hash strain, Hindu Kush produces plenty of kief. It is often used to make charas and black hashes. Naturally potent, this strain often has THC content that reaches 20%. This strain is best for nighttime use. A powerful sedative, Hindu Kush is perfect for those who struggle to get to sleep.
