If you are new to growing this strain, you will definitely enjoy the fruits of your hard work if you love nuggets with high THC levels combined with strong aroma and flavours. Critical Kush delivers strong soothing and full-body relaxation effects without hard-hitting side effects. It is a product of Barney’s farm- an Amsterdam-based farm that is also the source of other potent cannabis strains like the Liberty Haze and LSD.
Measurements from Cannabis testing lab shows that the strain has THC levels of between 16% and 29%. Being a pure Indica, it has large and densely packed buds full of shiny trichosomes in the inside and outer surface. The leaves have a bright shade of green.
If you are a newbie grower, you can start with Critical Kush as it is easy to cultivate and also resilient. You can also grow the plant in both indoors and outdoors environments, but most people prefer indoors due to its medium height. If you choose outdoor growing, ensure that your area has humid conditions with temperatures of between 72 and 80 degrees.
Indoor grown Critical Kush plants have a flowering time of 7-8 weeks, which is fast compared to other popular strains. Despite its small size, the strain also has an excellent average yielding of 500-550 grams per square metre. The high number of flowers per plant allows the high yielding as it translates to a higher number of buds.
Flavour, Appearance and Aroma
Critical Kush has a strong smoke with a pungent aroma with earthy, aromatic and spicy tones. If you choose smoking as the consumption method, be ready for an intense acrid smoke that stings your sinuses. The strain is also not the perfect choice if you want to be discreet with your marijuana use. This is because its smell is hard to miss, even when one is a mile away.
The high THC levels provide a relaxing high for both the body and the mind. Surprisingly, the strain does not render the user ineffective but helps them relieve stress and tension while still active. You can enjoy it at any time of the day or when going to sleep for a restful sleep throughout the night.
Apart from the recreational high, Critical Kush can also offer users some medical benefits. The relaxing high commonly linked with Indica dominant strain also provides a feeling of happiness and wellbeing. These effects can helps your relieve mental issues like anxiety, depression and stress. All these benefits come without any side effects as there are no records of anxiety or paranoia after use.
