Critical Mass Strain is a potent indica marijuana strain made by crossing Afghani and Skunk #1. In small doses, this strain will have you feeling creative and calm. In large doses, you’ll likely find yourself feeling sleepy and in a couchlock. Critical mass gets its name because of its ability to reach “critical mass” in terms of growing. When growing, branches of this strain tend to snap off from the heavy weight of its buds – which are dense, heavy and tasty. The downside of Critical Mass is that this strain is particularly susceptible to mold, so growers have to be extra cautious with humidity.

Critical Mass Strain is an Indica-dominant strain named for the extremely large buds that have been known to snap their own branches in half. This strain has a rather high THC range of 19%-22%, which is impressive for a strain with such large buds. The combination of Kush and Cola flavors deliver a potent body-numbing buzz that can make users feel lazy and sedated. Most users report this strain brings a clearing of the mind, leaving them feeling creative and focused, yet lethargic. The effects usually last between 2-2.5 hours, depending on the dose. Some users find this strain thought-provoking and nearly psychedelic. As nearly all strains with high THC content, this strain when consumed in higher quantities can produce dry mouth and eyes as well as some paranoia and anxiety.
Critical mass strain strain is most often reserved for evening or night-time use due to its sedating effect. For the same reason, it’s good for insomniacs seeking a full night’s rest. Critical Mass Indica body high may ease most chronic aches and pains as well as relieve stress and anxiety. Others choose this strain for migraines, nausea, and anorexia.
