Afghan Goo, or Afgooey, is a popular and potent cannabis strain. As the name suggests, this is a descendant from Afghani Indica landrace, crossed with Maui Haze, a Sativa-dominant strain. Afghan Goo falls under the Indica-dominant hybrid as it is 70% and 30% Sativa. Its THC content can range between 20% – 25%, making it an ideal choice for experienced smokers.
It goes by the name “Goo” because of the stickiness of the buds. Every bud comes with a thick coating of sticky resin, seeping out of the frosty trichomes. When you start to open up Afghan Goo, you will observe sweet pine and fresh pepper or spice-like aroma. The odors will increase in intensity as you smoke or vape the buds.
After smoking or vaping Afghan Goo, you will observe a sudden euphoric feeling. In small doses, it increases your creativity. If you smoke or vape this cannabis strain in large amounts, it has a sedative effect. Due to this reason, Afghan Goo isn’t ideal for activities that involve high levels of mental focus. The best time to smoke or vape this cannabis strain is during the evening or nighttime, as it aligns with the bud’s sedative effects. Afghan Goo can help you deal with stress and insomnia. It is also useful for problems such as anxiety, depression, and body aches.
