It is indigenous to the Hindu Kush mountain chain that forms the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Aroma: Hindu Kush’s aroma is very pungent and fragrant with a floral effect that’s accented by fresh herbs and spicy pine.
Taste: Hindu Kush bud has a skunky earthy flavor with a sweet flowery exhale that has touches of fresh woods.
High: Hindu Kush high has a subtle building onset that creeps up on both mind and body before suddenly taking hold. You’ll feel a euphoric effect settle into your mind, easing away any negative or racing thoughts and leaving you feeling blissfully unfocused and hazy. As your mind settles into oblivion, your body will begin to follow suit, leaving you couch-locked and totally sedated for hours and hours on end. Soon, a sleepy effect will settle in, leaving you dozing off and on as both mind and body fade away.
