Lovers of high potency strains often pause to take a look at Crystal Coma. Immediately, the first noticeable thing is its THC content that ranges from 20% to 27%. In a sense, the absurd level is already a sign of things to come with its use. But due to its mischievous name, people often have the wrong perception of how it works.

The exact genetics of this strain is unknown. But the consensus belief is that it is a cross between Skunk No. 1 and UK Cheese. Both hybrids, of course, are formidable and considered by many to be classics. Both are also among the most prominent family of strains that exists today.

Skunk No. 1, for instance, is exceptional at providing a high-energy buzz that sparks creativity. UK Cheese, on the other hand, induces deep relaxation that is fitting at the end of a long hard day. Both strains also have one thing in common, that is their unique aroma and taste.

Crystal Coma took the best of its parent strains. It also leans more towards the Sativa side. Hence, much of its effects are cerebral. Still, it is also an excellent choice for medical cannabis users.

As its name suggests, many people think it can put users to sleep in no time at all. In reality, while it does induce laziness, it is not likely to cause a couch-lock.

As its effects creep into the body, it blends with the cerebral effects and keeps it in check. In other words, it prevents any chances of the Sativa side overwhelming the users. It also induces a soothing body relaxation.


As users can expect, Crystal Coma inherited the fragrance of both its parents. Hence, it emits a sweet odor with the distinct scent of skunk and cheese. Not to worry, though, as the weird combination is not as stinky as one might imagine. On the contrary, it is an aroma that grows on people.


The strain tastes like cheese with strong flavors of lemon and fuel that is reminiscent of the cleaning agent Pinesol. It also has a sweet and citrusy note.

Adverse Reaction

In the case of many Sativa-dominant strains that has as much THC as Crystal Coma, one can expect to experience psychedelic effects if using too much. That is not the case here, though. But it does have other possible unwanted effects.
