Afcrack brings a smile to one’s face. Apart from its funny name, it delivers an uplifting head high of pure energy that enlivens users. However, users can also smoke a few puffs for a gentle euphoria instead.
To create Afcrack, its breeders took two strains from each side of the spectrum. From Afgoo, it gained its tranquilizing body high that crushes stress as it persists throughout the body. It also has subtle energizing qualities that uplift the mood. To enhance this, Green Crack was added. It has a fruity terpene profile that invigorates the senses at the first whiff. It enhances the stimulating effects of the latter while adding its stress-crushing high.

An interesting thing about Afcrack is that its effect depend on the dosage. It can either lean toward the Sativa head high of its Green Crack parent or a total body melt like that of Afgoo’s. Regardless, it provides a reprieve for users looking for either extra energy to extend the day or muscle relaxation to the point of sedation.

Afcrack is a quick-acting strain that delivers a powerful head high with its potent THC levels of 16% to 19%. One thing to remember though is to use the strain in moderation. Otherwise, it can overwhelm the mind with a head rush that quickens the pace of one’s thoughts.
In moderation, it delivers a rush of euphoria that uplifts the mood and readies the mind. It creates an open space for thoughts to flow and flourish into ideas. Thus, it should come as no surprise that users experience a surge in creativity.
Gradually, a tingling buzz trickles down from the temples down to the rest of the body. It eases the muscles, soothing and calming away the tension. In all likelihood, users will not only feel relaxed but also like a well-oiled machine. Able to move freely, users can perform light physical tasks.
Overall, Afcrack’s wake and bake qualities make it a great daytime strain. Users may toke it in the morning in place of coffee to stay energized throughout the day. It can also be used during a day off in pursuit of a passion project.
Afcrack has a pungent scent with a tropical overtone. It is sweet with hints of citrus that are accentuated by a floral undertone. Breaking apart or combusting its buds releases its spicy earth aroma.
Enticing the palate is the sweet but tangy taste of citrus topped with flowers. There is a subtle spiciness too albeit overpowered by Afcrack’s tropical profile. On the exhale, it leaves an earthy aftertaste that lasts for hours even after the last puff.
Apart from the usual dry eyes and cottonmouth, it is possible to experience anxiety and paranoia while smoking Afcrack. It is usually the result of consuming over THC tolerance levels but also one’s disposition before the high. In such cases, it is better to avoid the keen awareness that the strain brings by calming down first or using only when necessary.
Stress relief is among Afcrack’s best therapeutic qualities. It delivers a calming euphoria that stabilizes the overwhelming dread that life’s stressors induce. Hence, users may use it at the end of the day to appease any of the stress accumulated throughout the day. After all, it can exacerbate or lead to the early onset of various health issues.
At the same time, it replaces feelings of hopelessness with an uplifted mood and an upbeat disposition. Long-sufferers of depression, anxiety, and PTSD may turn to the strain for comfort. Albeit, its effects are only temporary. It is still best to seek a mental health professional.
Its invigorating qualities do not only invigorate the mind but the body as well. It gets rid of the exhaustion or fatigue one feels by delivering a surge in energy through the muscles. As it eases the muscles, it also releases tension and pain beginning from the temples.
Afcrack has the growing profile of a Sativa-leaning strain. It grows tall and has a lanky structure that requires support. Because of this, many growers prefer cultivating it in a controllable environment.
This is not to say that the plant does not thrive outdoors, in gardens or farms. Rather, it requires extra protection against a variety of growing factors such as strong winds that might topple it or break its branches. Indoors, one can easily adjust factors like temperature, lighting, and humidity to suit the needs of the plant. Topping it early will keep its height short and manageable. This will also prevent it from cramping up the space.
It works best with the Screen of Green method, wherein growers install a screen above the current canopy of the vegetative stage. Its branches are later weaved through the net to distribute light evenly. Apart from that, it improves light and air circulation in the lower nodes. The low-stress training technique also ensures that the buds are provided support during the flowering period where it grows denser and heavier.
Afcrack flowers early indoors between 8 to 10 weeks. It yields at least 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter at harvest.
Afcrack, like many strains, enjoys basking in the sunlight. By the second to fourth week of October, it produces at least 16 ounces of buds per plant.
