The cannabis strain Critical Kush is a potent indica that smells of spices and pine with skunky undertones. Its buds are a light, mint green with hues of orange and yellowing pistils. They’re normally fluffy and popcorn shaped with slight violet undertones and a light layer of trichomes.
Its THC content can be anywhere between 14%-20% on average, depending on crop. It has a slow activating high, so wait ten to fifteen minutes for this strain’s full effects. Once it kicks in, the body will feel relaxed and the mind will be foggy but euphoric. Reviewers have noted that it induces introspection and is thought-provoking. However, its numbing body sensation will help sedate the consumer and is good for night time use if trying to eliminate insomnia.
Negative side-effects include dry mouth and eyes along with bouts of dizziness if too much is consumed at once.
