Afghan Maple Hemp Flower Review
The sweetness of maple syrup with the attributes of Afghan Kush best describes this high CBD strain of hemp flower. Afghan Maple is a unique hemp hybrid and one of the only strains of flower that tastes like maple syrup.
Afghan Maple hemp produces big fat Christmas tree-shaped flowers. This strain tastes just like it smells, delicious. Its Kush family origins give it that classic good herb stench and earthy green taste.
The “Maple” adaption can be traced to a phenotype of Afghan Kush that was kept safe during the 1980’s invasion by the former Soviet Union into Afghanistan.
These beautiful bright green buds have thick spots of orange hairs contrasting patches of purple calyxes. The effect of Afghan Maple hemp is two-fold – deep relaxation and a powerfully uplifting boost to mood.
In the next sections, we’ll go over the genetics and chemical profile of the Afghan Maple CBD Strain.
Reportedly hailing from the Hindu Kush region near Afghanistan and Pakistan, Afghan Maple is a sweet-tasting descendent of the Kush family lineage.
Afghan Maple hemp was systematically bred to produce lower amounts of THC using an unknown hemp strain. Most likely, it was a hemp strain similar to Early Resin Berry or Cannatonic.
The result is a CBD strain of Afghan Maple, one of few that can brag about their indica lineage.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found throughout nature that have therapeutic benefits for humans. Plants create and use terpenes to communicate to pollinators and predators, to protect themselves from the weather, and much more.
If you’ve ever smelled fresh cracked peppercorn, cut basil, or just stopped to enjoy the roses, then you’ve interacted with terpenes. Here’s an in-depth look at Afghan Maple’s terpene profile.
Hemp and cannabis are special in that they create an enormously complex variety of terpene combinations. The terpene profile of any strain is similar to the fingerprint of humans in its unique patterns and expressions.
Total terpene content 4.94 mg/g
Total secondary terpene content 1.5 mg/g
· Myrcene 1.9 mg/g
· Guaiol .6 mg/g
· Caryophyllene .5 mg/g
· Bisabolol .4 mg/g
Secondary terpenes include: Limonene, Linalool, Pinene, and Humulene
It is the unique combination of primary and secondary terpenes that creates its sweet, syrup tasting profile.
Myrcene has a unique pungent aroma that can be noticed in various fruits when they’re ripening, specifically mango. It has a powerful sedative effect and is also the most abundant found in terpene in hemp and cannabis plants.
Guaiol gives Afghan Maple hemp flower a woody, flowery aroma.
This terpene is found in various plants including the guaiacum, cypress pine, and of course, hemp.
It exhibits potent anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties and has been
Phytocannabinoids are the active compounds in hemp flower that are responsible for its therapeutic benefits and effects.
While terpenes also play into how hemp affects you, understanding the phytocannabinoid profile of a strain helps you to predict its potency and potential effects.
· Total phytocannabinoid content 21.90%
· Total CBD content 18.44%
· Total secondary phytocannabinoids 3.48% (THC-A, CBG)
Our latest batch of Afghan Maple hemp flower tests at a total of 18.44% cannabidiol (CBD) along with an additional 3.48% secondary phytocannabinoids including THC-A and CBG.
Cannabigerol (CBG) is well known for its anti-inflammatory effect upon intraocular eye pressure. Some studies also show CBG has beneficial effects for pain and nausea.
The most beneficial effects commonly reported from Afghan Maple include deep body relaxation coupled with cerebrally uplifting mood-boosting effects.
CBD helps to boost natural endocannabinoid functioning and tone, and also improves serotonin and dopamine signaling in the brain. These mechanisms and many others indicate a powerful anxiolytic and anti-depressant like effect from CBD.
That means that the best uses of Afghan Maple CBD manifest in reducing perceived stress-related anxiety, fatigue, and symptoms related to depression.
Anyone looking to calm the mind, release emotions, and rest in the body should look no further than this powerful indica hemp hybrid.
