Green Crack

It is easy to be misled by its name – but Green Crack strain is actually all cannabis.

It got its name from its strong sativa presence, and its ability to offer up an energetic high.

This is also why Green Crack is popular among those who want to steer clear of a couch-lock high.

It is flavorful in its own right, and creates a generous mental buzz, which is both invigorating and stress-busting.

Fun fact: this strain was renamed by Snoop Dogg.

  1. My tents are full now however they will be empty in a few months. When this happens I will be ready to buy some Green Crack

  2. I’ve grow green crack 3 years now. There was a high heat streak this last summer. All my other plants went hermie-Not the green crack! Tall and bushy,she has many beautiful large buds coming right along perfectly. This is an easy strain to grow-just keep them dry. Only strain easier would be Blue Dream…in my book.

  3. I have one in the garden shes 2.5 months and has already started to bloom about .3 foot tall Hope to have a good harvest

  4. So i grew green Krack for the first time this year and so far so good. They are big thick sticky white buds absolutley Caked in chrystal and its the First week in September i dont have a ton of sun but They grew 3 feet or So. A branch got snapped by mistake last week So i Hung it out to dry even thou its not mature im pretty high! Like really high. Ill be doing this again Next year.

  5. This year I’m growing green crack. I think the plants are bigger than the Blue Dream I grew last year. I know the buds are bigger. Buds are growing together better than last year. I like it. I plan on growing Green Crack again next year. Growing outside,in pots. Moderrater feed up until flower stage. Then I switched to phosphorus,calcium and potassium. No spider mites, a little (thripe?) damage but I put diatomaceous earth in the pots-they went away. So far no mold….but the rains have not yet begun…Keeping an eye on that.

  6. A few years ago I used GC for medicine and I loved its uplifting effect and it’s thick smoke. GC smells like marijuana rather than strawberries or bananas. I am considering growing it. I’m doing Bubble Gum, a favorite of mine, but would like a bigger yield.

  7. I just planted my first attempt at gc and very excited for my results I’m still a new grower only my 3rd season any tips not in article would be appreciated
