Afghan Kush Charsi Hoops
Did you think I would never have anything to say about being from the country, where before all this American imperialism bullshit, was known the world over for its' drugs? The land of hashish!
When you have multiple weed strains named for your land, like Afgooey, Afghan Black, and Afghan Kush, what do you expect? A country of stoners! Funnily enough, the Afghan Kush strain is so strong that it is named as such: "Killer of Afghans". So strong even the OG stoners die from it!
Smoking chars, weed, in Afghanistan is very common, especially because the herb grows wildly all over the country- we even had a massive bush in our garden growing up!
The youth loves getting high, but chars is also traditionally smoked by all the elders as they enjoy their twilight years in relaxation. Our languages have so many words for stoner/getting buzzed etc., but Charsi is the most commonly used.
Where my Charsi qandolak-ha at?!
7.5 cm diameter, brass, sterling silver + 24k gold.
Light weight, each hoop weighs > 10 g, so they will not tug on your ears!
