Hades #1 regular seeds is a pure Afghan landrace cross between Black Afghan from the Underground Seed Collective and the Maruf Kandahar Black from Indian Landrace Exchange (harvested in Kandahar, 2020).
Originating from a private seed collector's stock, Black Afghani is an extraordinary 100% Indica cannabis strain developed by Underground Seed Collective. Through several generations of careful breeding, they have successfully stabilized this variety to showcase its two defining features: a deep, almost black hue and a subtle aroma reminiscent of premium hash. The plant itself is robust and compact with strong branching and large buds, capable of producing abundant yields of sticky, dark-colored buds after just 8-9 weeks of flowering. Its unique scent combines woody and fruity notes with hints of coffee and vanilla, while its potent effects work to relax both the body and mind, providing a soothing and sedative experience.
The Kandahar Black Selection is one of the finest specimens in the ILE Kandahar collection. Along with other prized gems collected from various provinces during this project, the Black selection stands out with its all-black appearance, from leaves to flowers. It also boasts a desirable calyx-leaf ratio and produces large yields of resin-coated buds on hardy plants that can withstand the harsh conditions of Southern Afghanistan. The aroma profile of this plant reflects the common scents found in this population, with an absence of sweetness and a complex blend of earthy, spicy, acrid, and sharp phenol-based notes. The buds are elegantly shaped packed with dense resin throughout.
To create Hades #1 the Pandora crew meticulously selected sexually stable, robust, and resinous specimens among the parents. These plants produced the deepest black hues and had a powerful aroma and effect. This new Afghani landrace cross is now available in two editions (Hades #1 and #2). Hades #1 is known for its ability to produce intense black tones more reliably. At temperatures below 15ºC/60°F, it can turn completely black, creating a stunning sight.
Hades #1 can be harvested after only 55-60 days flowering. The addictive aroma combines hints of hashish, red berries, coffee, and vanilla. Some say it is slightly sweeter than Hades #2. Both editions are relatively resistant to drought, with Hades #2 being particularly hardy. This makes it a worthwhile investment for hot, dry areas and extreme high-altitude climates with a short season.
Hades #1 cannabis is a heavy-hitting Indica that knocks out stress and anxiety on the spot. In lower doses it leaves you happy and relaxed, but as you increase the dose it will glue you to the couch. It has great medical potential with its calming, relaxing, sleep inducing, and pain relief properties. The Black Afghani genetics are THC-dominant and typically contain 3% CBD and up to 1.5% CBG. Users report benefits for PTSD, stress, ADHD, and multiple sclerosis.
