Looks: If strains were a football team, Hash Plant would undoubtedly be the center. Short, fat, sticky and dense, Hash Plant has football- and fist-shaped buds that display its Afghani heritage loud and proud. Evergreen in color, it has a heavy coat of trichomes.
Flavor: Although there are subtle, tart notes of skunky beer up front, the strain’s earthy, hashy characteristics control the palate, with spicy, woody notes of bubble gum glazing the tastebuds.
I’ve never been one to hate on the outlandish or complex names of strains.

Hash Plant has a small Northern Lights influence that pairs well with its Afghani…
