Strain 101: Hindu Kush

What is it?

Hindu Kush is one of the oldest strains we have on record right now. Named after a mountain range that runs between Pakistan and Afghanistan, this strain was most frequently used to make hash by beating the plants together to knock off the trichomes and rolling them together by hand.

Where did it come from

We may never know where this strain actually originated from or if it has always called that area home, or what it’s parent strains might have been, but we do know that it can probably be found in the genetic history of most strains we see today.

Brought to North America in the 60s and 70s, this strain played a part in the creation of most of the Kush strains that now flood the market.
