This sativa strain’s soaring head-high is what first caught Snoop Dogg’s attention. But don’t let the name fool you. Humboldt Seeds’ Green Crack has nothing to do with the other kind other than the fact that those who have smoked it can’t seem to get enough of it. Here’s why.
Heritage & Genetics: Green Crack by Humboldt Seed Organization is a sativa-dominant descendent of Skunk #1 and an Afghani indica. The strain is also known under different names like Crush, Green Crush or Cush. When Snoop Dogg coined the name Green Crack, however, it stuck.
Flavor & Aroma: Green Crack’s aroma has all the hallmarks of a true sativa strain. A sweet, earthy and citrus-like fragrance complimented by a slight mango undertone. Others also report a light hint of freshly cut grass. The musky pinewood flavor on the exhale is further evidence of its sativa genetics.
Effect: It was Green Crack’s soaring sativa high that first got Snoop Dogg’s attention. An energizing head-high that in moderate doses focuses the mind and gets the creative juices flowing. Ideal for a productive day or a nice accompaniment for a night on the town.
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: Green Crack is an easy strain to cultivate for beginners, as long as it is provided with an environment that is low in humidity. This is advised due to this strain’s sensitivity to powdery mildew. Extra ventilation will help to prevent fungal infection as well. Due to its tendency to stretch quite a bit during the vegetative state, you might want to prune Green Crack early on.
