The original Afghani belongs to the region where the oldest strains of cannabis are believed to have grown. It is used by breeders all over the world for its large resin production which is passed down genetically. GG #1 is extremely high yielding with an impressive amount of resin. It is a wonderful medicinal strain and has a high THC level and a CBD level of 0.66%. Over all it is no wonder that GG #1 is such a popular strain.
This strain is feminised which means that it will only grow into female plants. Feminised seeds are especially popular amongst growers as they remove the problem usually caused by the male plants. Male plants have to be removed at the start of the flowering period in case they harm the female plants.
This means that, if a grower buys regular seeds, they waste around half of the seeds and so half of the money spent on them. If a grower has no plans to breed their own crops they have no need for the males. Feminised seeds are also generally of a higher level of quality and uniformity than regular seeds. Breeders can still use feminised seeds if they have enough experience. It is a much more difficult process but it yields better results. Female plants are capable of producing the same type of pollen as the male plant. This pollen can also be used to fertilise a female plant and create feminised seeds. 80% of strains which have been bred in this way have shown marked improvement.
This strain has a flowering time of around 8 weeks and is a pure Indica strain.
