Critical Kush from Barney’s Farm is a mostly indica strain that blends together two famed cannabis staples, Critical Mass and OG Kush. Aromatic notes of earthiness and spice usher in a calming sensation that relaxes the mind and body. It pairs a staggeringly high THC content with a moderate dose of CBD, making this strain a perfect nighttime medication for pain, stress, insomnia, and muscle spasms. Growers cultivating this strain indoors will wait 50 to 60 days for this strain to complete its flowering cycle.
Medical cannabis patients can also find various uses in this strain’s therapeutic properties. It can work against deep-seated aches and pains, whether temporary or chronic. The medicine’s anti-inflammatory may also help with more minor irritations like headaches or nausea. This strain’s mood-elevating effects may provide some welcome (albeit temporary) relief from stress, depression, and even anxiety. Finally, in high enough doses, Critical Kush may lull even insomniacs into a deep, fulfilling sleep. Because paranoid, cerebral thinking isn’t common with this strain, it’s a good choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Both Barney’s Farm and Dutch company Royal Queen Seeds have made seeds of Critical Kush available for sale online. It can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Critical Kush flowers within 7 to 8 weeks when grown indoors and is ready for harvest in late September when grown outdoors. Grown properly, it can offer as much as 56 grams (about 2 ounces) or flower per square foot of plant! Note that, just as this is a pungent smoke, it can be a very stinky grow (after all, parent strain Critical Mass has Skunk in its genes!) and indoor growers may want to invest in odor control measures like carbon air filters.
