CBD Critical Cure is highly appealing to those with low interest in intensely potent strains. It has a THC level that averages at 8% and induces a clear cerebral high that helps thoughts flow better. Complementing it is a soothing body high that totally relaxes the body so enthusiasts can ruminate without stress or tension.

The predominantly Indica bud is among the premium strains produced by Barney’s Farm, which developed the bud using two legendary buds. First is Critical Kush, a quick flowering bud with ruderalis roots that deliver a calming mind and body high. It is also impressively potent. To counter it, the breeders added in an unnamed high CBD strain created by one of the founders of CBD Crew, Shanti Baba.

What truly makes CBD Critical Cure a standout bud is its high CBD content of 8%. It caters to the needs of many medical users looking for a reprieve outside of traditional synthetic medicine. And, being a versatile strain, it eases symptoms of mental and physical health conditions.

Meanwhile, CBD Critical Cure also has potent inflammatory properties that reduces swelling and redness. In relaxing the muscles, it gets rid of unwanted contractions or spasms that often causes a sharp pain.


If producing a highly acclaimed medical strain were not enough, Barney’s Farm also released CBD Critical Cure seeds in feminized form. This not only makes the growing process easier, it also assures aspiring growers of a garden full of female plants.

With that said, it is easy to determine CBD Critical Cure’s growth pattern based on its structure. Being an Indica, it is naturally short in stature but absolutely sturdy. Its branches, like its stems, have high resistance against strong gusts of wind as well as problems caused by high levels of moisture in the air. And, though it prefers a warm and sunny weather, it has no problem thriving in cold climates.

Still, there are many who prefer cultivating the strain in more controlled environments. Apart from added protection against pests, factors such as temperature, lighting, and humidity are readily adjustable to fit the growing plant’s needs. It may need some trimming though. Its bushy leaves may harbor moisture that eventually develops into mold.

Barney’s Farm suggests adding support, such as stakes, to CBD Critical Cure during the flowering period. This will keep the plant from sagging or breaking off due to the weight of its heavy buds.

Flowering Time

CBD Critical Cure has an indoor flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks. Once ready for harvest, it produces up to 21 ounces of buds per square meter. Applying the Sea of Green method can significantly increase yields.

Garden grown CBD Critical Cure blossoms from the last week of September to the second or third week of October. Once mature, growers can harvest between 18 to 25 ounces worth of cured buds per plant.
