About this Hybrid Strain

If you’re looking for an indica-heavy hybrid, Critical Kush is your strain. Consumers have said those who suffer from insomnia or night terrors will most likely find relief using Critical Kush before bed as it will slip the mind and body into a peaceful night’s rest. As the body drops into full relaxation, the mind will become hazy, so don’t plan on doing anything that requires too much thinking after consuming this strain. Users say expect to become sleepy, hungry, thirsty, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself laughing or giggling a lot more.

Critical Kush was first bred by the notorious Barney’s Farm in Amsterdam and is a cross between the indica Critical Mass and hybrid OG Kush. THC levels range from 14-20% depending on cultivation and curing techniques used. Buds of Critical Kush are light and minty green with burnt orange pistils and a dusting of resinous trichomes.

The main terpene found in this strain is Beta-Myrcene, the musky terpene that’s associated with inducing couch-lock. It’s also this terpene, among others, that gives Critical Kush its earthy and musky aroma that often has cedar-like notes.

When inhaled, it’s hard to pinpoint an exact flavor, as it has no truly dominating taste and can be a bit harsh on the lungs or throat. Reviewers have noted this strain is best used with a vaporizer and will often leave a woody aftertaste on the back of the tongue.

Critical Kush is great for novice growers as it can easily be grown indoors and out. The plant will grow to a medium height and flowers in about 8 weeks.
