Subtle, Sweet and Skunky Seeds
Referred to once upon a time as Afghan Skunk, Mazar Feminized was renamed back in 1997 - but nothing about her potent goodness was changed along with her name, and she’s the same Indica-dominant, high THC marijuana mama you remember.
A cross between two cannabis strains that are legendary in their own right, this weed combines the ancient landrace heritage of Afghani with Skunk #1, taking resilience and structure from the former and tastiness and hefty harvests from the latter.
Such qualities were always going to combine to create a weed beyond compare, and it’s no wonder Mazar Fem’s attracted attention - she came second in the 1999 High Times Cannabis Cup, second in the 2002 High Life Cup, was named Plant of the Year in 2004 by Soft Secrets magazine and won the top award at Bologna’s Cannabis Tipo Forte in 2008.
Subtle and sweet, the skunky fragrance of Mazar is discreet and yet fruity in flavor, meaning you can enjoy this powerhouse of 20% THC without worry. Though Indica-heavy (20:80 to be precise), the Sativa properties of this strain make sure you remain lucid and able to enjoy the cerebral side of her buzz while your body melts into a wondrous bliss of relaxation.
Medical users will rejoice at the tranquilizing and pain-relieving properties of this pot, but arguably growers will be happier still with the ease in which she grows. Hardy due to her heritage, growing this ganja is a breeze that concludes in healthy, hefty yields whether you choose to cultivate indoors or out.
Flavor and Fragrance of Mazar Feminized
Not particularly pungent, the Mazar Fem is an ideal strain for growers and smokers alike who are looking for a discreet strain. Her scent is subtle, and yet unmistakably skunky - much as you’d expect with Skunk #1 parentage - though once combusted, her aroma blends sweet with spicy and floral notes.
In flavor, tangy citrus notes mix with nuances of wood and a delectable sweet fruitiness that’s delicious and delightful, balancing well with Mazar’s scent.
Immense and powerful, Mazar Feminized is an experience for the mind and body, clocking in with THC levels of up to 20%. Mostly Indica in her makeup, the smaller Sativa side of this strain’s high is enough to ensure lucidity as you journey into a cerebral, buzzing bliss that only intensifies as it goes on.
Starting off gentle, you’ll soon ascend on a mental flight to the heavens that begins with mild relaxation and builds until you’re floating on a cloud of calm and tranquility that overtakes every muscle and limb. This profound body stone is the main reason Mazar is so popular with tokers, though the happy head high that accompanies it is something of an added bonus.
Since THC content can reach pretty damn high that you’ll be brushing the heavens with your fingertips, it’s understandable that some tokers might be overwhelmed by this strain - she’s a lot to take in and her subtle build-up can be easily overlooked.
We’d recommend starting slow with a toke or two, and waiting a few minutes before going back for more - particularly for newbies. Even for seasoned smokers, couchlock is inevitable, so stick with smoking this weed at the weekend or late in the evening when the day is done.
Medical Uses of Mazar Feminized
Mazar Feminized is one of those strains that’s just as loved by the medical marijuana (MMJ) community as by recreational users, and is renowned for her abundance of health benefits.
Though her mental high and Sativa content isn’t anything to rave about in terms of her high, the effect is still impressive enough that it can ease anxiety and stress symptoms within a few tokes, ridding the mind of negativity and intrusive thoughts. She’s also often prescribed for ADD, ADHD and bipolar disorder, due to her intense calming properties.
Mazar’s Indica effects are where she really shines medicinally, as this herb acts almost as a muscle relaxant, relieving aches and pains with her analgesic properties - making these buds ideal for treating the symptoms of migraines and arthritis.
This marijuana can also work wonders when it comes to providing comfort to those suffering from fatigue. Her tranquilizing effects can induce deep, restful and restorative sleep for those struggling with insomnia.
Of course, there are side effects as with most weeds out there - dry eyes and mouth are commonly reported, and can be avoided provided you remember to keep yourself well hydrated as you toke. But serious reactions are a possibility with high THC levels, and newbies or those with a sensitivity to such should be warned that dizziness, heightened anxiety or increased paranoia are all a possibility. Lighter doses should keep this off the cards, but if that doesn’t work for you, we’d suggest switching to a less potent strain.
Growing Mazar Feminized Seeds
Nothing less than an absolute pleasure for cannabis cultivators around the world, Mazar Feminized is heavy-yielding and easy to manage, and that’s before you throw in that she’s all-fem and won’t waste your time when it comes to weeding out the males in the batch. It’s hard to find a flaw with growing your own stash when it’s as simple as this.
Many of this ganja’s best traits are classic Indica attributes such as resilience to fungus and molds and most pests. Her landrace heritage also makes her hardy as hell, and though she adores the sunshine like most strains, she can also hold her own in severe weather conditions - ideal if you’re considering growing Mazar outdoors.
Dense, dark green nugs adorn this short and sturdy shrub, and you can truly see how potent she is with just one look at her heavily coated buds, smothered in thick white trichomes.
To make the most of her simplicity, indoor cultivators would do well to set up a Sea of Green (SoG) environment to maximize growing room. Good light management is important too, and temperatures should be kept stable at between 70° and 80°F.
She’ll reach the flowering stage after around 8 or 9 weeks, and you really won’t be able to find a thing to complain about when her yield comes in at 1.47 to 1.8 ounces of nugs per square foot of plants.
If you do choose to cultivate Mazar Fem outdoors, plenty of sunlight is key to keep her thriving, and though she’s hardy, do make sure to avoid any frosty weather as this could have a negative effect. She’ll do well in most climates of the northern hemisphere though, and is ready for harvesting by early November - yielding 12.3 to 15.9 ounces per plant.
A hybrid of highly-renowned heritage, Mazar Feminized has a whole host of awards under her belt for good reason - her legendary parents provided legendary properties and now she’s a legend too!
Discreet enough for subtle smokers, tasty enough to entice a modern palate, and quick and easy to cultivate, you’d be hard-pressed to find a downside to this ganja. Her Indica-heavy high flies you up into the stratosphere but keeps you lucid enough to really appreciate the deep body-stone effect that washes over your every limb and ligament.
Cultivating this cannabis is simple enough for beginners and a joy for those with more experience, as she exhibits the hardy, sturdy qualities so prized in her parent strain, Afghani. Her yields are big enough to make her a worthwhile grow regardless, but she’s easy to manage and all-fem too boot, removing half the work.
