CBD Critical Cure is a Barney’s Farm creation that is now popular on the West Coast of the United States. Critical Cure is an offspring of Critical Kush crossed with a ruderalis variety.

The result is a low-THC bud with slightly sedative effects. Critical Kush is a predominantly indica-dominant hybrid cross from Critical Mass and the legendary OG Kush.

As the name suggests, this is a high-CBD/low-THC cannabis strain. On average, the THC level in this bud is a mere 5%. However, the CBD levels can range between 8 and 12% on average.

Overall, this strain is considered non-psychoactive. However, some of the slight sedation from THC may shine through.

Critical Cure smells just like a slightly sweet pine tree. It has a slight sharpness in both aroma and flavor, making it a little pungent. There is a bit of fruitiness in this strain, giving it a delicious forest aroma.

The pine aroma does not shine through as much in the taste, which has a strong earth quality. Overall, the buds are conical, slightly dense, and feature deep green hues.

The CBD Critical Cure experience

The CBD Critical Cure experience is very different from what you’d expect from traditional, high-THC cannabis. However, some classic effects shine through. Though CBD outnumbers THC nearly 2 to one in this strain, the indica heritage in this strain can be felt around the eyes and in the body.

You are unlikely to find yourself with heavy lids after this strain, but it can inspire a very slight sedation with a gentle and pleasant pressure around the eyes and sinus region. Otherwise, very alert and focused effects shine through.

Like many high-CBD strains, the effects of Critical Cure can be powerfully uplifting. The anti-depressant effects of CBD are rapid, which is why this strain can turn your mood around in a matter of minutes.

It provides a calm, happy, and satisfying sense of wellbeing without distorting reality or becoming uncomfortable.

This light and mellow strain has a variety of uses. For recreational consumers, this strain is excellent for daytime use or whenever you just need to take the edge off a little.

This strain is technically an indica, but the incredibly low THC levels mean that you won’t experience the heavy sedation that typically accompanies indica strains.

So, grab this before work or before a nerve-wracking public speaking event.

Medical consumers pick up this strain for a wide variety of reasons. However, this strain is perhaps most commonly used for those seeking relief from mental health conditions.

Depression and anxiety seem to melt away after just a few tastes of this easygoing herb. Many with post-traumatic stress disorder and other stress-related conditions tend to respond well to the relaxing and anxiolytic nature of CBD.

Patients with many physical ailments appreciate this strain as well. The mixture of both THC and CBD in this strain makes it an excellent choice for pain management and relief from inflammatory conditions like arthritis and gastrointestinal disorders.

The slight sedation this strain provides may also be helpful for insomniacs.
