The Afghani used in our original breeding program was a true landrace afghani acquired by an older member of the crew.
This person was responsible for bringing back tonnes of Afghan border hash into the UK during the 80’s In one of his shipments he had requested some seeds to be bought over and eventually, in one of the several consignments, this was granted when he found a leather pouch containing a good handful of seeds.
After giving some out to various associates at that time, he ended up keeping a little amount in a photo film case, I myself have known this guy since I was 15, but it wasn’t till around 2000 when I was given theses seeds to try out, I didn’t start them till I had enough room , around a year later, surprisingly, out of about 50 seeds 29 germinated, and out of these were a selected female and a highly admirable male, which just had the most vigour, out of all the Afghani’s.
The reason why we kept this Afghani male (to this day!) was because we knew that this would be true breeding stock, and more importantly, it was our own genetics.
For years we were pushing out this Afghan female, until it eventually was going around everywhere being called different names such as the kush, and also ,the kali, due to its pungent sweet fruity hash taste, highly desirable, this was going on until I acquired the the genetics with which I created the 'worlds 1st Cheese seed'.
