Afgooey, also known as Afgoo, is a potent indica strain that is believed to descend from an Afghani indica and Maui Haze. Its sativa parent may lend Afgoo some uplifting, creative qualities, but this strain undoubtedly takes after its indica parent as it primarily delivers relaxing, sleepy effects alongside its earthy pine flavor. Growers hoping to cultivate Afgoo may have a better chance of success indoors, but this indica can also thrive in Mediterranean climates outdoors.
Euphoria is its most common and powerful effect, swiftly followed by feelings of laziness, commonly associated with true Indica or Indica-heavy strains. The strain produces a very powerful body high that leaves one happy and very hungry. Some users report feeling extremely focused while using Afgooey. The usual dry eyes and mouth accompany the use of this strain. Paranoia is widely experienced although a few users have described the paranoia as amusing. Others report feeling anxious. As with other strains, some people experience headaches.
Afgooey is recommended for evening medicating. Due to the strong Indica effects of this strain, it is often used to ease chronic aches, pains and stiffness like those associated with multiple sclerosis. Afgooey can also be used to alleviate nausea and induce hunger. Due to its sedating effect, it can bring relief to those who suffer from insomnia. Its also been reported to ease suffering in people who experience chronic migraine headaches because Indica-heavy strains work as an anti-inflammatory.
