Critical x Medical Madre gave Royal Queen Seeds this majestic, mainly indica strain (60%). She is popular with medical users who also seek some THC to help combat pain as she has an average of 10% THC and a 1:1 CBD ratio, which if anything falls heavier on the CBD side with an average of 11% CBD. She does well indoors and outdoors and is an easy grow.
Heritage & Genetics: Descending from a long and regal line, Medical Mass is a cross of Critical x Medical Madre and has Royal Highness, Royal Medic, Juanita la Lagrimosa and Critical Mass in her heritage. A mainly indica strain, Medical Mass has an impressively high CBD content of 11% and a low 10% THC to balance out the effect. She has a broad range of potential benefits for medical users and tastes great.
Flavor & Aroma: A strong, deep flavor of fruit and sweet honey, that leaves a lovely tingle on the tongue. Aroma wise there is plenty of variety here, not too herby or skunky: you will get a mixture of earth, pine and something sweet plus a little floral note or some lavender to top it off.
Effect: Subtle and not overpowering, the mild THC ratio will give you some mellow, clear-headed uplift before the high moves on into a deep, relaxing body-buzz. An intense contended feeling will overtake you; easing stress, anxiety and any trace of daily aches and pains.
Medical: CBD strains, particularly with a 1:1 THC/CBD ratio, are thought to have a broad range of medicinal uses including helping with pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, and seizures associated with some forms of epilepsy. Strains with a balanced cannabinoid content have also been indicated to have calming effects that could help with nausea, gastrointestinal disorder, fibromyalgia, and muscle spasms. While not definitive, some research has also suggested that strains with a balanced THC and CBD ratio may help improve the restlessness, hyperactivity and inattentiveness associated with ADD/ADHD.
Grow Characteristics: Works well indoors, as she’s not too tall, or outdoors, as she’s pretty hardy to pests and mold. Treated kindly, she will produce a high yield of cannabinoid-rich, dense and delightful smelling bud. Though she’s pretty swift to flower, give her a little extra time if you want to make the most of her powerful medicinal properties, as this should help intensify the CBD content. Maybe it’s the CBD ratio that makes her such a laid-back little lady, but cover the obvious basics well (water, light, etc.) and she will do well for you, whether you’re a beginning gardener or a pro. Pretty, slightly pointy nugs will be sparkly and covered in orange hair.
