This high-quality strain is popular for many reasons, above all for its well-balanced effects, as well as its high-yielding potential, making it a great choice for growers. It is an indica-dominant strain that has a long list of medical purposes, making it a popular choice in the medical cannabis community.

Critical Kush is an indica-dominant strain that was created by Barney’s Farm Seeds. Although it is a hybrid, stemming from a blend of Critical Mass and legend strain OG Kush, it has inherited a predominantly indica personality from its diverse and famous roots.

This heavy-hitting strain strain comes in quickly and can easily induce a solid couch-lock, especially in users who are not accustomed to its potency. Critical Kush should therefore be attempted only if you are prepared for the strength of its effects and do not have any obligations that require you to be alert and stay on your feet.

Fragrance

Critical Kush is known for its pleasant aroma that borders on a slightly sour yet earthy scent. This indica-dominant strain contains a mix of herbal and pungent notes, finishing off with a distinct woody fragrance that contains hints of spices, further enhancing the smoking experience.

Flavors

This strain boasts of an interesting blend of flavors, with its smoke sharply tasting like a creamy herb-like note, mixed in with some sweet lemon on the exhale. Critical Kush also contains a potent mix of other citrus flavors, hinting on a sweet lemon pie and leaving a taste of fresh pine on the inside of your mouth, long after you have exhaled it.

Adverse reactions

Critical Kush is a strain that is potent, and with it come a few side effects, although none of them are very serious. This indica-dominant strain can sometimes make you feel parched as it can leave you with a dry mouth, which is usually coupled with a case of dry and itchy eyes.

This strain may in some cases make you feel anxious, especially if you have the tendency to feel so. Critical Kush may also induce some dizziness and in some more extreme cases this may also lead to a slight bout of paranoia, usually occurring when consumed in higher doses.

Medical

Medical consumers love this particular strain for its many healing talents. Critical Kush is known for being a surefire way of averting your tendency to feel stressed, and has therefore become a powerful tool in managing everyday and chronic stress syndromes and effects that come with it.

Critical Kush is often used by patients for the treatment of an array of pain conditions. This indica-dominant strain can cause a feeling of numbness, which helps, especially those patients with difficult to treat chronic pain, such as migraines, back pains, muscle spasms, joint aches and other inflammatory conditions.

This strain is also known to help ease insomnia, gradually calming the patient to inspire a night of restful sleep. Critical Kush has successfully treated patients with depression, lifting their mood and calming their nerves, but can also help cancer patients regain their appetite during long and exhausting chemical treatments

Growing

Growing Critical Kush is relatively easy, especially for a high yielding and potent plant. It can be quite hardy when kept in the outdoors too, however, for best results you should cultivate this plant in a warm and temperate outdoor climate, so as to maximize flowering and yield.

    Looking forward to growing this Critical Kush, I have grown the Critical Mass before, and it was a bell ringer. Got 3 seeds ready to pop.

    This critical Kush does not look like the ither plants. It is lighter and delicate looking. Little flashes of flowering. Not bunches of big buds like OGKush or others. Could it be a Male?

    Cure almost done for 2nd grow. Big buds indeed. Smoke reminds me of a "perfumey" taste, but it really does the trick for prepping mind and body for a great night's sleep
