Yo, what’s good? My name is Dan and I’m here to give you the lowdown on the Critical Cure strain. If you’re looking for some medicinal bud that won’t get you too high but will leave you feeling pain-free and relaxed, this could be the one for you.
First off, let’s talk about the flavor profile. This strain has some earthy, fruity, and piney notes with a hint of sweet strawberry. If that’s not enough to get your taste buds tingling, I don’t know what will.
Now, onto the common usage. This strain is great for those dealing with anxiety, depression, inflammation, sleep issues, and stress. Its effects include increased focus, feelings of happiness and relaxation, and an overall uplifting mood.
If you’re thinking about growing your own weed, Critical Cure is a good option. You can grow it both indoors and outdoors with an average flowering time of 7-9 weeks indoors or late September to mid-October outdoors.
So why is Critical Cure so special? It’s all about the CBD content. Most strains have less than 1% CBD on average, but Critical Cure can contain up to 10% CBD! That’s ten times more than most other strains out there.
This hybrid strain has an 80:20 indica to sativa ratio and is a cross between Critical Kush and an unknown ruderalis. Its high CBD content makes it a great option for those who want to manage their symptoms without getting too baked.
You should know that Critical Cure takes longer than most strains to kick in. It’s a slow onset creeper that starts with a mild high and increases in its indica effects over time. Don’t worry though, you won’t end up couch-locked. Most users experience increased mental clarity and can still move around freely.
The aroma of this strain is strong and earthy with some fruity, berry-like notes, and hints of lemon and pepper. As for appearance, the plant stays relatively short with forest green spade-shaped buds coated in resinous trichomes.
Growing Critical Cure is moderately difficult, so it’s not recommended for novice growers. It’s indica genetics make it short and bushy, requiring some pruning. Using support structures during the flowering period is also recommended. While you can grow it indoors or outdoors, it generally does better outdoors in warm and sunny climates. The yields are generous too, with indoor growers potentially seeing a return of approximately 21 ounces per square meter and outdoor growers getting between 18-25 ounces per plant.
The THC content of Critical Cure ranges from 5-12%, with an average of 7-11%. CBD content also varies, with an average of 7-8%. Its high CBD content makes it a great medicinal marijuana strain for managing mood disorders like depression and anxiety as well as alleviating painful and inflammatory conditions like chronic arthritis and headaches.
Be aware that the most common side effects are cottonmouth and dry eyes, but these are minor compared to the potential health benefits. Some users have reported dizziness or headaches though.
So there you have it, folks. If you’re looking for a low THC/high CBD strain, give Critical Cure a try. Just remember to start slow and be patient with its slow onset effects.
