Critical Mass was created by crossing an Afghani indica with renowned heavyweight Skunk #1, thus creating a soothing bud with a potent knock-out punch.

This hybrid is a new take on the famed Mr. Nice Seeds strain called Bug Bud, but has carved out a reputation for itself as a true-blue heavy-body indica dominant strain.

  1. I grew Critical Mass last season outside. She was over 10′ and had so many heavy buds that one of the lower branches broke under its own weight. The buds tested 19% THC. Overall a very good strain.

  2. I was given Some bud from a close friend who claimed this has been his best crop hes ever grown, after trying i was hooked and he gave me a seed. I’m Currently 22 days into flower on a indoor grow of critical mass. This is my first time growing And she has Been great to me. So far this strain has been forgiving of my learning curve with only a few minor issues along the way. The final Verdict is on the horizon can not wait for a taste.
