About this Indica Strain

The cannabis strain Critical Mass is an indica that bares a citrusy, sweet aroma and taste that’s quite earthy. Its large, dense buds have been known to grow so massive, they are known to break their own branches which is how this strain derived its name.

Critical Mass’s lineage comes from crossing the indica Afghani and hybrid Skunk #1 – two potent strains that have been popularized throughout the years for their powerful highs.

The average THC content of Critical Mass is quite steep at 19% with some crops reaping in at 22%. Its high will leave the consumer lazy, sedated, and with a body high similar to numbing. Though this strain has been said to help one’s mind clear and focus, it is still accompanied with the sensation of lethargy. Some reviewers describe this strain as psychedelic and thought-provoking while couch-locking them. Critical Mass is best consumed at night for its sedative effects.

This strain will cause paranoia or anxiety if improperly consumed, though all that try this strain should expect the usual dry mouth and eyes.

Growers must provide extra support to each plant when cultivating as the plants begin to flower, otherwise the strain of the dense buds will cause branches to snap. Critical Mass is an ideal strain for cash-crop growers.
