Appearance, Flavor, Aroma
A typical Critical Mass plant is roughly 40-90 inches tall. It produces chunky and dense buds with icy resins and beautiful orange-like hairs. Fascinatingly, the strain derives its unique name from its dense and heavy buds, which are easily recognizable thanks to the extremely pungent smell they emit when smoked.
When it comes to taste, this strain has an intricate variant of tastes that range from earthy, skunky, honey, sweet, to citrus. This bizarre mixture of tastes has earned Critical Mass a large fan base, with most users enjoying the very best of the strain’s tastes through vaping.
Critical Mass’s earthy and citrusy tones come from combinations of pine and citrus, which originate from its Skunk #1 heritage.
Critical Mass is one of the few cannabis hybrids that are specially engineered to allow easy growing, even for novice growers. The strain produces an impressive amount of yield and can be very profitable if grown under the right conditions.
For successful cultivation of Critical Mass, growers are advised to make sure the plant gets enough warmth and sunlight and protect it from heavy rain and moisture.
Another important thing to note about the cultivation of this incredible herb is that its buds can be very dense and heavy with crowded icy resins, and this can tremendously weigh down the branches. For this reason, the plants may need some extra support to help them hold themselves up.
When cultivated indoors, Critical Mass’ flowering time is around eight to nine weeks and can produce up to 27 ounces of consumable herb per square meter.
The indica-dominant strain requires a Mediterranean climate to flourish outdoors. If you choose to grow this hybrid outdoors and the climate is right, you can expect a yield of approximately twenty-one ounces per square meter.
As earlier mentioned, Critical Mass’ incredible CBD concentration makes it very useful in the medical field. The strain is mostly used to ease a whole range of pain-related conditions, including joint pains, headaches, migraines, pain associated with cancer treatment and muscle spasms.
If you struggle with mood disorders, this is the strain to go for. Critical Mass is also effective at treating inflammation, arthritis, nausea, depression, stress, ADD/ADHD, and loss of sleep.
Possible Side Effects
Expect a few mild adverse reactions when you ingest Critical Mass. Some common adverse reactions include dehydration, dry eyes, and dry mouth. On rare occasions, Critical Mass may also make you a little dizzy, anxious and paranoid.
Because of Critical Mass’ powerful indica-leaning effects, we highly suggest starting small, then increasing your dosage with time. If overused, the strain is known to cause a slightly uncomfortable body high.
