LINEAGE
Critical Kush is a potent, heavy-lidded indica. The effects are couch-locking. With up to 25% THC, the shear strength of this strain isn't surprising. Grab this woody herb when you need to catch up on some sleep.

Critical Kush is a Barney's Farm Seeds creation. It is a cross between Critical Mass and OG Kush, giving it a hybridized heritage. However, Critical Kush has inherited the indica qualities of Critical Mass.

This strain is popular among growers looking for a high-quality cash crop. Critical Kush is fast-growing, high-yielding, and has ample bag appeal. The overall effects are classic indica, meaning that it provides a heavy, physically sedative experience.

Best when saved for the night time, Critical Kush is the perfect strain for getting comfy and winding down. The effects come on quickly, creating a soft pressure behind the eyes and the upper part of the face.

The THC levels in Critical Kush are very strong, sometimes reaching up to 25%. This flower features a tangy citrus flavor and aroma, with strong undertones of earth and pine.

Many medical cannabis patients use Critical Kush to manage pain and insomnia. It's popular for those seeking relief from depression, chronic stress, and headaches as well. The tranquilizing properties of this strain are also valuable for those with anxiety.
