This Afghan domesticate was collected in Tashkurgan, an ancient centre of cannabis culture in Balkh Province, northern Afghanistan.

Under native conditions, the typical leaflet width of this Afghan domesticate tends to the narrower end of the spectrum, but broad leaflets are not unusual. Within cultivated populations from the wider Hindu Kush region, leaflet widths range from broad to narrow, as in authentic Chitrali and Mazari strains. CBD and rarer cannabinoids are likely to be exhibited.

Specific qualities of live plants at the source site in Tashkurgan were noted by the collector, namely intense black currant and berry fruit aromas. These transferred to the sieved resin.
