Critical +

SHARE
Critical + (Critical Plus) is a high-yielding Spanish hybrid. This lemony strain features a creative, uplifting high and calm physical relaxation. Try this strain on a mellow afternoon.

Critical + (Critical Plus) is a bold and balanced hybrid. A cross between indica Big Bud and a collection of sativa-dominant Skunks, this pungent flower stepped onto the scene in 2005. Bred by Dinafem Seeds, Critical + has won several awards over the past decade. These include second prize at the Marina Baixa Cup 2010, the Valencia THC Cup 2011, and numerous more.

The popularity of Critical + picked up speed in Spain in the mid-2000s. Since that time, it has become a rising star on the West Coast of the United States. Understandably so, as this strain is famous for being fast and easy to grow with absurdly high yields.

The effects of Critical + are quite pleasant. Though, it isn't the strongest strain in the world. The THC content averages between 16 and 23%. The overall experience of this strain is very typical of hybrids. Critical + has inherited the cerebral and mood-boosting powers of the Skunk line with ample body relaxation to boot.

Medical consumers have many reasons to love this strain. It has strong pain-relieving properties, making it a top choice for those with headaches, migraines, fibromyalgia, and more. Those concerned with mental health tend to use Critical + for PTSD, depression, and anxiety.

Growing Tips

The buds from Critical + are large, heavy, and compact. The high yield on this strain means that support is usually required during flowering. It's possible to grow this strain indoors, but it does tend to stretch. Watching the height will be necessary. Outdoors, this strain does best in a greenhouse or in Mediterranean/temperate climates. The dense bud structure makes this plant susceptible to moisture retention, so make sure to keep it in a well-ventilated area with plenty of air circulation. Critical + also has a very strong aroma. Not the most discrete strain out there.
