Seeds of this strain — along with seeds of other Asian landrace varieties like Afghani — were brought to the U.S. in the 1960s and 70s by cannabis enthusiasts and explorers. Who travel along a route that has come to be know as the “hippie trail.” In time, Hindu Kush has, perhaps inevitably, been cross with other strains to allow for stability and adaptation to a radically different climate than its mountainous point of origin; as such, “true” Hindu Kush may not be widely available in the Western Hemisphere.

The purely indica lineage of is evident in its stature. Indica plants are much shorter and stockier than their sativa counterparts, and the strain epitomizes this. Hardly ever growing taller than 5 feet. As such, it can be grown indoors, provid that multiple plants are space to allow for the strain’s wide lateral branches. Outdoor cultivation tends to be more difficult, as the strain’s native climate is highly variable. However, as note, certain varieties of this strain have been stabilize through minor crossbreeding. So some phenotypes may grow well outdoors.
