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.
