Critical Mass regular seeds produce buds with a quite subdued aroma. Terpene profiles gravitate towards pinene, myrcene and caryophyllene. Expect touches of pine and musky earth laced with citrus and hints of pepper, but this lady ain’t no stinker. That could be a real advantage for covert outdoor grows, and at any rate, the silky smooth smoking experience gently caresses the throat. Critical Mass Regular is a true joy to grow and a pleasure to smoke!
Critical Mass is much praised for her pain-alleviating potential. That’s partly due to a 22-26% THC and 1.2% CBD content. People suffering from chronic pains, migraines and many other debilitating painful conditions stick to Critical Mass for her full body analgesic power. Stress and anxiety are her specialty too, especially for tensions that manifest in the body like back aches, neck cramps, tense shoulders and similar symptoms. Definitely a favourite among growers making medicinal edibles and ointments.
Crittical Mass brings calm, relaxing influences. The critical mass of this indica smasher focuses on a relaxing body buzz. She’s praised for its sleep-promoting effect. It’s also great company during the day, as Critical Mass may give you couchlock, but in the meantime she keeps the mind sharp and alert. That effect is bound to last, so you will have quite some mass on your hands …
Flavour & Aroma
Critical Mass has been a real darling among growers for years. That’s why Amsterdam Genetics decided to make regular, non-feminized seeds available to anyone willing to give that grow a go. Her time-tested Skunk #1 X Afghani genetics make for some unique strain qualities. Still, this pleasantly plump and productive plant perfectly illustrates the saying: “Quantity has a quality all of its own”.
Get ready for Critical Mass Regular seeds, a regular non-feminized cannabis strain wielding record-shattering giga-sized buds that’ll have your eyes popping in amazement. This much-appreciated 80% indica strain makes it perfectly clear that size does matter – time to get your XXL Critical Mass grow going!
Your grow will reach Critical Mass in no-time; both indoors and out. The regular seeds provide both male and female plants, which is great for trying out your own crossbreeds and special experiments. With an eight-week flowering time, it won’t be long before this Fat Lady sings, but do keep a close watch as you’ll probably need to support her branches once buds start to appear. After all, Critical Mass was named for her tendency to let branches snap under the weight of their bountiful produce. Also, huge buds increase the risk of mold developing where it’s hard to spot, so stay sharp during flowering time! She’s a feast for the eyes in full bloom, displaying bright green megabuds crowned with purple sugar leaves and orange pistils, coated by an icing sugar dusting of twinkling trichomes. Of course, yields largely depend on your techniques and growing conditions, but harvesting 600gr per plant is no exception here.
Outdoor growers have a massive window of opportunity with Critical Mass as she can be ready to harvest up until early November. This can be both a blessing and a curse, though. Her huge, densely packed buds can quickly accumulate mould as temperatures drop, so make sure you keep a close eye on her during those final few weeks. With so much quality weed on offer, you don’t want to waste a single nug!
It is not uncommon for branches to bow under the weight of her densely packed buds, so make sure they have plenty of support. If you decide to cultivate outdoors, training becomes essential—Critical Mass can reach up to 140cm in height. Give her the right guidance, and the rewards are not only fantastic yields, but a pleasantly sweet flavour with earthy and woody undertones.
If you want a robust and dependable strain that delivers an abundance of tightly packed buds, then Critical Mass is the girl for you. Taking pride of place in grow rooms across the globe, the Critical name has become a hallmark of huge yields, and equally huge flavours. Although not breaking any potency records, her 22% THC is nothing to be scoffed at, especially given her balanced mind-body effect.
Critical Mass (Advanced Seeds) feminized
Critical Mass has a reputation for bountiful yields, fast flowering, and an abundance of flavours. Advanced Seeds not only delivers every tenet of the Critical Mass name, but they have fine-tuned her taste, aroma, and THC levels to provide a highly pleasurable experience.
Grown indoors, you can expect a stunning 550–650g/m² of flavoursome buds, with flowering taking 65–70 days. True to her name, Critical Mass’ yields reach critical levels, and we love her for it!
Critical Mass is suitable for growing indoors, outdoors or in greenhouses, she grows easily and quickly and is famous for her rapid flowering under lights and early finish out in the sunshine, making her a great choice of genetics for guerilla growers and beginners.
Critical Mass has gained almost legendary status in Spain, where in the early 2000’s in the Basque city of Bilbao the famous Critical Bilbo clone was selected, going on to win countless prizes and continuing to dominate the Spanish cannabis scene to this day. Mr Nice Seed Bank present here the original genetics of this multi award-winning variety, brought to you by it’s creator Shantibaba.
Be on the alert for any signs of fungal attack, we don’t recommend that you wait too long to harvest your precious flowers, and make sure you’re prepared to deal with a ridiculous amount of buds!
The result of a cross between an original Skunk #1 and an extremely vigorous Afghan, Critical Mass has a powerful and unmistakeable sweet fragrant citrus taste, surprisingly penetrating floral aroma and a potent cerebral high which gives way to a relaxing and narcotic body effect.
One word of caution, the colas produced by Critical Mass can grow so large and dense that mould can become a real problem in late flower, especially when growing in humid conditions or in a poorly ventilated room.
Possibly the heaviest cropping hybrid in commercial production, Critical Mass is the improved version of the massive producer and old grower’s favorite Big Bud. She consistently gives huge yields of seriously sticky and stinky buds – big enough to snap the branches if they aren’t supported – so be warned!
For medical users seeking the therapeutical effects of the cannabinoid CBD (Cannabidiol), CBD Crew have created CBD Critical Mass, a feminised version using these original genetics but bred to offer a THC/CBD ratio between 1:1 and 1:2.
