Critical Mass is a combination of Afghani and Skunk #1 that originated from the breeder Mr. Nice Seed Bank. With a large “critical mass” of production, branches tend to snap from the weight of these dense buds. Flowering time is approximately 6-8 weeks, with a heavy leaf to flower ratio. However, due to the large production of flowering, this strain is susceptible to mold which can be reduced by growing indoors to reduce humidity. THC levels of this strain may reach 19-22%.
The combination of Kush and Cola flavors deliver a potent body-numbing buzz that can make users feel lazy and sedated. Most users report this strain brings a clearing of the mind, leaving them feeling creative and focused, yet lethargic. The effects usually last between 2 – 2.5 hours, depending on the dose. Some users find this strain thought-provoking and nearly psychedelic. As nearly all strains with high THC content, this strain when consumed in higher quantities can produce dry mouth and eyes as well as some paranoia and anxiety.
This strain is most often reserved for evening or night-time use due to its sedating effect. For the same reason, it’s good for insomniacs seeking a full night’s rest. Critical Mass Indica body high may ease most chronic aches and pains as well as relieve stress and anxiety. Others choose this strain for migraines, nausea, and anorexia.
