Kandahar marijuana genetics are named for the southernmost province of Afghanistan, a scorched landscape that encompasses everything east of the Hindu Kush mountain range. In recent history, this area has been known for its bloody wars and emotional turmoil, but from a historic standpoint the city of Kandahar has a long and ancient history with both humankind and the cultivation of marijuana.
Kandahar is one of the oldest known human settlements and served as a bustling hub of trade, connecting crucial routes through Southern Afghanistan up into Central Asia. The Kandahar marketplace was once filled with an abundance of fragrances and textiles. From hemp, and silk, to wool and an assortment of dates and other dried fruits – no doubt some high-quality hash as well. This beautiful, yet arid region is still considered to be the birthplace of cannabis Indica.
The dominant traits which comprise Kandahar’s strain are primarily Indica, rich in pure Afghani genetics on the mother’s side, with an Afghanistan crossed – California skunk father.
Should an experience cultivator be fortunate enough to get their hands on some Kandahar seeds, you’ll find them to be the poster child for indicas traditional growth patterns. Short, stout and stinky. A compact plant with incredibly tight calyxes, which over time develop into a line green, resin encrusted flowers.
As Kandahar comes the end of its lifecycle, reaching full maturity, the fan leafs begin their autumn transformation. Going from line green to a bright yellow, peppered with bright purple leafs as the nights become cold. Not typical to all indicas, Kandahar truly enjoys a good feeding of PK – so be generous and enjoy the benefits. For those living and growing in a colder, wetter climate, Kandahar has shown a strong resistance to mold and mildew. And considering that she takes 8 to 9 weeks for her flowers to reach optimal expression, this can be a handy trait depending on the grow region you find yourselves trying to cultivate in.
Once cured, the flowers are nice tight little nuggets [when done right], with an earthy / nutty taste. A last-minute hint of sandalwood is detected as you exhale your deep, rich hits. The elevated sense of being settles deep in the body, with a potential for some serious downtime. Relaxing music, with soothing tempos – a little discovery channel, or some other undemanding – yet sensory rich activity will pair nicely with Kandahar’s anaesthetizing qualities. The day is over – your troubles are behind you, it’s time to sit back and enjoy the satisfying sense of relaxation you’ve earned.
MOSCOW (Reuters) – A Russian serial killer who butchered his nine victims with a knife and hammer, and said he ate the hearts of two of them, was sentenced to life in prison on Friday.
Prosecutors said Alexander Bychkov targeted alcoholics and the homeless out of disdain for their way of life, lured them into deserted areas, killed them, dismembered them and hid the body parts.
They said he described all nine killings in a journal with the words: “The bloody hunt of a predator born in the year of the dragon,” state-run news agency RIA reported.
A court in the Penza region convicted the 24-year-old, who sometimes called himself “Rambo”, of nine murders between September 2009 and January 2012.
Bychkov was arrested last year on suspicion of stealing 10,000 roubles ($ 320) and merchandise from a hardware store, but was charged with the murders after investigators found evidence.
RIA said he told authorities he had eaten the hearts of two victims, but he was not charged over that because there was no evidence to prove it. ($ 1 = 30.8955 Russian roubles)

If you were being stalked by a killer, you would you try to stop him or her, right? Now let’s say your killer is a space rock shaped like an Idaho spud. What would you do about that? Interestingly enough, the odds of you being murdered at the hands of a madman are about one in 210 [source: Bailey]. The odds of being killed by a cosmic potato are a tad lower — about one in 200,000 to 700,000 over your lifetime, depending on who’s making the calculation [sources: Bailey, Plait]. But here’s the rub: No single person — not even someone as evil as Hitler — could wipe out the entire human race. An asteroid could. If a rock just 6 miles (10 kilometers) across struck our beautiful, blue world, it would be adiós muchachos for every last one of us [source: Plait].
So, stopping an asteroid from blindsiding Earth makes sense, but is it even possible? And if it’s possible, can we afford it? The answer to the first question might surprise you, because there are, in fact, many different ways to thwart a space rock. (No one ever said they were smart.) How much it might cost remains uncertain at best. Money, however, shouldn’t be the main concern when you’re talking about the survival of the human race. So let’s throw that question out the window and focus on the top 10 ways to stop a killer asteroid, no matter how crazy (or costly) they seem on paper.
Up first, we have a solution based on tried-and-true Cold War technology: nuclear weapons.
