The Critical Kush strain is one that has a name that truly matches its potency. The strain comes from two well-known strains and seemingly takes the best aspects of both of these strains.

Critical Kush is not a strain for beginners due to its massive potency. The last thing anyone wants is to waste marijuana by not enjoying the high after consumption. Below will outline all you have to know about the Critical Kush marijuana strain. 

Critical Kush Marijuana Strain Genetics

Is Critical Kush strain an Indica or Sativa?

Critical Kush is a 90/10 Indica-dominant hybrid of Critical Mass and the famous OG Kush. You will get the classic sedation from this hybrid which will leave you completely at ease mentally and physically. The high can creep up on you although consuming too much will likely lead to a peaceful sleep. 

Critical Mass can be great for those that want to kick back and relax on the couch. The beauty of this strain is that you will be mentally stimulated or might even feel a bit creative. This is a heavily leaning Indica-dominant hybrid that can help those that suffer from insomnia. 

OG Kush is extremely famous due to its potency at up to 26 percent THC. You will be extremely happy and this strain is great to watch a funny movie with friends. The citrus notes in the flavor make this not just potent but delicious as well. 

Yield Of The Critical Kush Weed Strain

Critical Kush can thrive whether it is grown indoors or outdoors. Indoors a grower can expect 1 to 2 ounces per square foot. Outdoors you can expect up to a pound of this extremely potent flower.

Setting up your grow is something that will become second nature after you gain some experience. You will find the perfect soil mixtures as well as the nutrients that you like using. Less is more in some areas of growing marijuana which is something to keep in mind. 

Flowering Phase Of The Critical Kush Pot Strain

The flowering phase of Critical Kush lasts 8 to 10 weeks. The strain might have to be grown indoors due to the skunky aroma which can be overwhelming. You will need a great way to eliminate the odor to conceal an indoor grow of this strain. 

The appearance of this strain is small nugs that are light green. There are dark orange hairs as well as hues of purple along with a crystal covering of trichomes

Your growing environment is going to differ depending on your preference. Natural sunlight will be far cheaper than growing indoors but the environment has far more variables. You have to accept the environment outdoors but an indoor grow can allow you to modify the environment slightly. 

Critical Kush Weed THC Percentage

Critical Kush has a range of THC from 22 to 29 percent. No flower of this strain will ever be considered anything less than extremely potent. Look for yourself to fall into sedation with deep thoughts that you keep to yourself. 

Flavor And Aroma Of The Critical Kush Strain

Critical Kush has a flavor of pine and sweet herbs. The aroma is earthy and herbal. The main terpenes in this strain are Pinene, Myrcene, and Ocimene. 

Pinene usually comes in strains that also have high amounts of CBD. You can expect relief from pain, anxiety, and stress with this terp. White Runtz and Mango Tango are two popular strains with this terpene. 

Myrcene can feel like you have had a massage of the body and mind as you relax. The terp has an earthy flavor and has also been known to leave you couch-locked. Blue Dream and Alien Rock Candy are two extremely potent strains with high levels of Myrcene. 

Ocimene has a fruity taste that has notes of wood as well. You might find that this terp helps increase your energy levels nearly immediately. 

Price Of Critical Kush Weed 

You can expect to spend around $12 per gram with Critical Kush. 1/8th of an ounce is going to cost around $35 to $30. The full ounce will be $180 to $200 depending on where it is purchased.

Critical Kush Seeds Availability

Seed Supreme and Royal Queen Seeds both carry Critical Kush feminized seeds. The one detail to note is that receiving seeds in the mail is federally illegal. Seed banks might still send the seeds regardless of the legal status which you should be aware of. 

Creating relationships with other growers in your area can be a great resource for seeds and information. Heading to a dispensary is another option to find feminized seeds. 

Medical Conditions Critical Kush Can Help

Finding relief through marijuana can be strange to some that were taught that the plant was nothing but evil. The stigma on marijuana is shifting quickly with a majority of people supporting federal legalization. Critical Kush can help with the following medical conditions:
