Khalifa Genetics presents Balkh Hash Plant, one of the most legendary Afghan cultivars. It is a flavourful landrace variety of cannabis used for making a sweet and fruity hashish of the highest quality. This legendary strain has been grown for centuries and probably even millennia. Afghan Hash farmers use this hash plant for making one of the most famous hashish in the world.

Afghanistan has the oldest hashish culture still in existence today. Furthermore, Balkh is arguably the epicenter of the Afghan hash tradition.
The Balkh province is home to some of the best sieved hashish in the world such as the famous โ€œMilk of Mazarโ€ and the โ€œOld Golden Oneโ€.
According to the legend, Baba Ku the famous healer who first brought cannabis to Afghanistan, was buried near the city of Balkh.

Just as many pure Afghan landraces, this variety typically produces a very clear stone and a pleasant body relaxation. Unlike many modern indica-dominant hybrids, the effect isnโ€™t couch lock but rather relaxing and insightful.

Potency varies from plant to plant according to the THC to CBD ratio. The plants range from high CBD-low THC all the way to low CBD-high THC.

This Balkhi cultivar is easy to grow and flowers relatively quickly. At first the plants all look very similar. As they flower, they start displaying a wide array of aromas, shapes and colours. Not unlike other north Afghan Landraces, the plants can be broad to narrow leafleted. The fastest flowering phenotypes usually display broad leaflets and are medium producers. However, the longer flowering plants can be very high yielders.

Although the buds can end up being quite heavy, these plants almost never need support. Their frame is very sturdy with a large and robust main stem. For that reason, Balkh Hash Plant can withstand very high winds.

As they flower, about 10% of the Balkh landrace plants gradually turn black. Towards the end of the flowering cycle, some of the plants become completely black both on the leaves and flowers. These Afghan plants are moderate feeders. Hence, they require higher levels of nutrients than most landrace varieties. However, they need less fertiliser than most modern hybrids.

Landrace Genetics, central Asian landrace expert, personally aquired the seeds in the Balkh Province near the city of Balkh in 2018. The Khalifa team has since been adapting this strain to growing indoors by reducing the hermaphroditism and decreasing the amount of undesirable phenotypes while preserving a lot of genetic diversity.

Thanks to its high genetic diversity, the Balkhi landrace could be extremely useful to pheno hunters and breeders looking for rare gems.
