An Energised Sativa High

Green Crack was called ‘Cush’ until the famous cannabis connoisseur Snoop Dogg renamed it after he experienced its intense sativa effects first-hand. While it is still known in some circles as Cush, now it is far better known by the name Green Crack.

The strain has disputed origins. It was originally grown in Athens, GA in the 1970s and is a descendant of the popular Skunk #1. However, there may also be some Afghani landrace in its background. It provides a trippy and energetic high that is perfect for daytime use. It has a mild potency, an average of 16% THC content, which will make sure you feel uplifted for hours.

The plant has a typically indica bud structure with dense buds that are small and clustered. The leaves are pale green to yellow, although in some phenotypes there can be streaks of purple if the plants are exposed to cold during the growing process. There are rust coloured pistils and the buds have a coating of while trichomes that gives them a sticky texture. The plant has a citrus sent with undertones of earthiness and peat. It produces very smooth smoke that leaves a tang on the palate.

While it has primarily indica physical characteristics, Green Crack has a very strong and buzzy sativa-like high. Users receive an energy boost followed by a cerebral mind set, which makes it a perfect strain for smoking during the day. It has been known to give users a sharp sense of focus that can help them with creative projects. It has also been reported to have mild psychedelic effects, including visual distortions and a sense of time dilation.

As Green Crack is very much a sativa strain, it does not have many medical benefits. However, it does have an energising effect so can help with fatigue. It has also been known to help with anxiety and depression, but if used in high doses there is a risk that it can result in mild paranoia and panic.

Green Crack is one of the easier strains to grow and is a good choice for newcomers. It can flourish indoors and out, but outdoor growing requires a good source of sunlight and temperatures of between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The plants can grow to be between 3 and 4 foot tall with strong lateral branching. Those growing it will need to top the plants, which involves trimming the broad leaves at the top to ensure light reaches the lower stalks. It is a relatively fast flowering plant and it will reach maturity between 7 and 8 weeks. Growers can expect about 1.4 to 1.6 ounces per square foot of plant. The buds from Green Crack need careful curing in order to retain its taste and potency.

Overall, Green Crack is a strain that should leave users feeling energised and inspired. It brings the best of what sativas have to offer and it is not hard to understand why it is one of the most popular strains around.
