LINEAGE
The buds on Critical Mass are so large and heavy they break branches. Novice growers will have an easy time with this indica. Novice consumers, however, may find the powerful body high a little intense.

A cross between legendary Skunk No. 1 and Afghani, Critical Mass is one smooth indica-dominant hybrid. This strain earned its name from the incredible high-yields it produces. The flowers on this plant are so huge that branches are known to snap in half.  Critical Mass is a new take on the Big Bud strain from Mr. Nice Seeds.

The high from this herb is extremely physical. You can expect ample couch lock. The strong body high can last up to a couple of hours, making this indica the perfect choice for a movie night. In low doses, you might find that this strain promotes an expansive, creative euphoria.

Medical consumers tend to use this strain for pain management. With a THC content of up to 22%, patients often find that this herb has powerful sedative effects. Those with insomnia will appreciate the drowsy, heavy-lidded nature of Critical Mass. Many with migraines and nausea also tend to like this strain.

There is also a high-CBD version of this strain, with 1:1 or 1:2 ratios of THC:CBD. This variety is a cross between the original Critical Mass and another high-CBD strain. The result is an indica that grows equally as vigorous as the high-THC version.

Growing Tips

The yields on this strain are so high and heavy that you'll need to give branches plenty of support. Extremely large buds also make this plant prone to mold, so it's important to keep humidity nice and low. Outdoors, this strain grows best in a Mediterranean climate. Indoors, Critical Mass does well in a sea of green (SOG) setup.
