Breeder: Nilsson Seeds
Lineage: South Asian and Jamaican landrace
As the story goes, Afghani Bullrider derived her name from an African-American man who was a professional bullrider and passionate about growing marijuana. The bullrider grew seeds that were given to him, and when the crop was harvested, he invited some friends over to smoke. It was then that one of his friend remarked that he felt like he’d just been riding a bull, and the name stuck. Since the 80’s this strain has shown up all along the west coast, from southern California to Vancouver.
Afghani Bullrider is a strain that has both light green and yellow buds accompanied by a plethora of orange hairs. This strain smells intensely fruity and sour at the same time, and the taste has been described as refreshing and piny. Known to be a heavy hitting indica dominant strain, the effects start in the head and quickly turn into a heavy body high that slows the cognitive process. This strain is best suited for evening use and would work well for those patients suffering from insomnia and chronic pain issues.
