Hindu Kush Shatter is a pure Indica strain that originated in the Hindu Kush mountain range between India and Pakistan. The strain produces a calming high, that uplifts moods and spirits, coupled with a strong body stone. Hindu Kush is for evening use as it can cause users to feel lazy and sleepy. Negative effects include dry mouth and eyes, occasionally accompanied by paranoia and dizziness. A few users have also reported experiencing anxiety from larger doses of this strain.
Hindu Kush Shatter Effects:
Relief of severe chronic aches and pains, such as those caused by multiple sclerosis, is the number one use reported for Hindu Kush. The strain is also used for insomnia, relief of stress and anxiety and for mood regulation. Some patients also choose the strain to alleviate migraines, headaches, nausea, and anorexia.
Hindu Kush Shatter History:
Some phenotypes have shades of purple in the leaves. The aroma of this strain is very complex, with a simultaneously sweet and musky scent, redolent of spice, sandalwood, pine, and wet earth. The resulting smoke is harsh and cough-inducing; when exhaled, smoke tastes vaguely like pine. The overall flavour impression of Hindu Kush is one of incense and herbs.
Hindu Kush Shatter high:
Hindu Kush Shatter boasts a slowly-mounting high that begins as a sense of physical relaxation and then progresses toward a state of mental fogginess. Users will feel a heavy sensation in the limbs and head and may not want to be especially active. This immobilization can free up the mind for lazy contemplation and meandering creative thinking. Some psychedelic effects like visual distortions and strange tactile sensations may also be present.
Hindu Kush Shatter is not for daytime use. Instead, it works well as a numbing agent for chronic pain, and anti-nausea treatment, and as a way to relieve stress and anxiety. Negative effects include dry mouth and eyes, occasionally accompanied by paranoia and dizziness. A few users have also reported experiencing anxiety from larger doses of this strain. Hindu Kush is particularly helpful for users with insomnia, as large enough doses can induce sleep.
