Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Hindu Kush is a pure indica strain named after the mountain range stretching 500 miles between Pakistan and Afghanistan where it originated. The harsh climate of its homeland has conditioned this strain to express a thick, protective coat of crystal trichomes cherished by hash makers worldwide. With a subtle sweet and earthy sandalwood aroma, Hindu Kush induces a deep sense of calm that helps bring relief to those suffering pain, nausea, and stress disorders.

From the OCS website, ” FIGR No. 7 is an Indica dominant strain that originated from the Hindu Kush mountain range near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. The flavour is reminiscent of a forest clearing filled with wildflowers, with a woody, earthy and sweet floral scent. The plants develop large, sticky, blunt-topped buds and produce large yields.
