Strain Information

Critical Plus (AKA Critical +) is a well-balanced cross between Big Bud and Skunk No. 1. Developed by Dinafem Seeds, it is best enjoyed by experienced users due to high THC levels of 20-23%.  The plants are bushy and are grown both indoors and outdoors. Although susceptible to molds, it produces a bountiful harvest. The strain’s teardrop-shaped buds are olive to dark green in color and covered in brown hairs and trichomes. Its nugs are sticky and condensed. Critical Plus emits a fragrance of intense woody, pine, and citrus aroma. It features a flavorful mix of lemon and lime taste that stays in your mouth.

Although Spanish in origin, its superb quality made this plant popular in the Pacific Northwest and Desert Southwest parts of the USA. This kush won the first Highlife Cup in Barcelona in 2005. It is a perfect mood enhancer, energy and creativity booster, and body relaxer that is good for an afternoon or night-time use. Not easily found, you can buy it in state dispensaries where medical marijuana is legalized.

What are the Flavor and Effects of Critical Plus?

Critical Plus leaves a lemon-lime taste in the mouth.  A balanced hybrid of indica at sativa proportions, onset effects of its mental high are intense euphoria, uplifted mood, increased creativity, and a clear focus.  Physically, you will feel a mild sense of calmness and relaxation. 

What are the Medical Benefits of Critical Plus?

Stressed and depressed? Critical Plus’ euphoric high uplifts your mood and lets your mind forget your worries for a period of time. Its calming and relaxing effects are perfect for alleviating pain in patients suffering from headaches, cramps, fibromyalgia, and the like.

Negative Effects You Can Expect from Critical Plus

No severe side effects are known from the Critical Plus strain. The usual reactions to cannabis, such as the dry mouth and dry eyes, are expected. For beginners, mild cases of headaches, paranoia, and anxiety may occur.

How to Grow Critical Plus?

Critical Plus thrives in a tropical or Mediterranean climate. It can be grown indoors or outdoors. Flowering comes after 7 weeks indoors and early October when grown outdoors. Bushy and susceptible to molds, it is best to check and give it a trim from time to time. It produces a very high yield that you would not bother to count its losses.

Due to its intense smell, you might want to be mindful of choosing a cultivation method for it.  Invest in odor control measures such as a tent or room with carbon filters for indoor growth so as not to cause a concentrated aroma in your garden. For outdoor cultivation, an area far away from neighbors (who might not agree with the strain’s smell) is advised.
