    Cannabis in Afghanistan

    Cannabis in Afghanistan

    Afghanistan is a landlocked country in central Asia, wedged between the western foothills of the Hindu Kush and the deserts of Iran, is a country with one of the greatest traditions of cannabis cultivation and, more specifically, of hashish production. Since it is believed that cannabis originated thousands of years ago on the slopes of the Himalayas (home of the largest mountains in the world), today it seems obvious that this was one of the first places where this plant was cultivated in a controlled manner, although even now there is still some confusion as to what kind of varieties have been traditionally grown in this area, as well as the “emergence” of the Afghan genotype, or in other words, what we now refer to as Afghan varieties.

    What is clear is that Afghanistan is one of the cradles of cannabis and especially of hashish, with a tradition that today represents what would probably be the world’s oldest in terms of the development of hash. In addition, and according to the UNODC, in recent years Afghanistan has become the world’s largest producer of this resin concentrate, surpassing Morocco and seeing the cultivation of cannabis gradually displace that of another traditional crop in the Golden Triangle area, that of opium.

        Hemp and Marijuana - what's the difference?

        Hemp and Marijuana - what's the difference?

        Classification and taxonomy of cannabis

        Even though it is estimated that the cannabis plant has been accompanying humanity for millennia, confusion still exists today regarding the classification of its species or varieties. In fact, the debate on how to classify this plant has been active for more than two centuries: are the different varieties of cannabis typical of a single and very diverse species? Or is it a polytypic genre with several species? In this article we will investigate and explain the main differences between hemp and marijuana.

            Common errors in the cultivation of automatic plants

            Spring is getting closer, and with it, the ideal conditions for cannabis cultivation, which is why many growers are already starting to plan their outdoor grow for the season ahead, while others are planning a last indoor crop before the dreaded summer heat arrives. It’s no secret that auto-flowering cannabis seeds (also known as automatics) represent a considerable part of the varieties that can currently be found in the market, with sales increasing year upon year, thanks in large part to the excellent work done by breeders and seed banks.

            Whether you grow outdoors or indoors, in this article we’re going to show you a series of tips and tricks towards successful autoflower cultivation, highlighting the typical mistakes that are usually made when growing this type of genetics and proposing alternatives that will make your grow much more efficient, with greater yields and higher quality of the final product.

                Harvest Right freeze dryers for drying hashish

                Harvest Right freeze dryers for drying hashish

                Nowadays, the increase in the types of resin extractions and the different extraction methods are nothing like the situation just a few years ago. Soon after the introduction of concentrates such as BHO (Butane Hash Oil), a new technique of mechanical separation called Rosin was developed. This method uses no chemical solvents, relying on just pressure and heat. Nevertheless, if there is a cannabis concentrate which has been “rejuvenated” during the last few years is, without doubt, hash, the oldest of them all.

                Thanks to modern techniques such as static electricity dry sift and the processing of fresh material, these types of concentrates have reached a degree of purity never before seen. Due to legalisation in numerous places, professionals have been able to develop new methods and to implement machinery solely reserved until now for other applications, both during the extraction procedure and the post-processing phase. This is the case of the Harvest Right freeze dryers, used to perfectly dry bubble hash or ice water hash, and which are increasingly popular among concentrates artists thanks to the many advantages they offer, and which we will see below.

                  After the fire: Interview with Subcool

                  After the fire: Interview with Subcool

                  Subcool – from TGA Subcool to The Dank

                  Subcool, the legendary American breeder and co-founder of TGA Subcool seed bank, is back with a vengeance after suffering the loss of his home, his crops, and all his genetics on October 8th 2017, due to the wildfire that ravaged the forests of Northern California. This blow, both on a personal and on a business level, would knock any of us down, but “The Weed Nerd” has managed to rise from the ashes and transform his misfortune into a new opportunity, relocating himself within the sector, changing his strategy, and returning with a commendable mindset.

                  Before all this happened, his life was already changing due to a divorce, which also impacted the seed bank TGA Subcool, currently in possession of his ex-partner, and the creation of “The Dank“, a cannabis conglomerate focused on offering cannabis seeds and producing premium quality flowers and medical-grade resin extractions, while striving to provide free information about cannabis growing.
