It is easy to be mislead by its name – but Green Crack is actually all cannabis. It got its name from its strong sativa presence, and its ability to offer up an energetic high. This is also why Green Crack is popular among those who want to steer clear of a couch-lock high. It is flavorful in its own right, and creates a generous mental buzz, which is both invigorating and stress-busting.
With its parentage stemming from the legendary Skunk #1, you are guaranteed a top-grade strain. Green Crack was created by crossing Skunk #1 with a mellow Sweet Leaf Indica, yet much of its actual history has been debated.
It is said that it was originally called Green Kush, but was consequently renamed by rapper Snoop Dogg to represent the uplifting, light-bodied high it produces.
