About this Hybrid Strain

The wizards at Mr. Nice Seeds, a Dutch company whose farm resides in Switzerland, sat down at the drawing board and with a plan to create a strain that will take you straight to the moon, pain free. To do this they took two legendary hybrid strains, Critical Mass and White Widow and hypothesized that by crossing them, their synergy would amplify their effects exponentially. That means instead of three plus three equaling six, we have three cubed equaling twenty-seven.

Critical Widow spells trouble from the first sight, as the buds are mostly made up of bright orange pistil bushes with a little green residing in between them. It could be said that Critical Widow is an aging ginger, as the white trichome hairs make up about as much of the total color as the green leaves. This strain’s heavy odor consists of earth and ammonia with the citrus and skunk flavors coming out when smoked. Growing this strain can be moderately challenging, as it needs a warm and dry climate and frequent pruning.

With THC levels testing up to 27%, it is recommended to proceed with caution. Users report that an energetic cerebral rush seeps out of the brain and runs down the neck turning into a warm bliss that permeates the body and extremities. Doing simple math will be quite challenging, so stick to mindless activities like routine chores or light jogging if one needs to be productive. Otherwise, kick back and enjoy your journey into outer space. It is highly recommended any activities be done early in the session. This is because, as the THC becomes metabolized, the user is more aware of the analgesic effect of the terpenes. The same heavy-sedative effects we get from the Critical Mass parent take hold, which is why this strain has exceptional reviews for pain management. In fact, it is even one of the rare strains recommended for menstrual cramps. Be careful though as this strain has the potential to put you down for the count. If it’s too early for bed, then you just might have to go back up again. Just remember to buckle up and fly safely!
