This hybrid strain brings classic indica relaxation with an uplifting sativa undercurrent. Relatively hardy and extremely fast-flowering, Critical Cheese is an all-round crowd pleaser with a fresh, tangy flavor and distinctive aroma.
Heritage & Genetics: Critical Cheese was developed in Amsterdam by Dinafem, combining the American favorite Critical Plus with the legendary Dutch Cheese. The two indica-dominant hybrids retain some of their sativa heritage, so cannaisseurs will be getting the best of both worlds with Critical Cheese.
Flavor & Aroma: The bold lemon flavors from the Critical Plus are noticeable, backed up by earthy-pine undertones and pungent spicy notes on the finish. Naturally, the Cheese brings with it a sharp ‘cheesey’ quality, both on the nose and the palate. The complex aroma and flavor make this one to savor.
Effect: The double team of indica hybrids means consumers can expect a relaxing high that’s deeply satisfying, with waves of euphoria that keep on coming. The uplifting sativa qualities keep ‘couch-locked’ feelings at bay, with consumers feeling confident and talkative. Critical Cheese is a great social smoke, that’s perfect for sharing with friends or chilling out at a party.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Critical cheese is fantastically easy to grow, both inside and out. Even a complete beginner can look forward to a fast flowering time and heavy, dense buds, glistening with potent oils. Such a fast growing plant needs regular topping and trimming to keep it under control in smaller grow spaces and, whatever the setup, growers will want to invest in anti-odor filters – its scent can be extremely pungent for the first two weeks of flowering. Critical Cheese is ready for harvest in 8-9 weeks.
