Critical Mass is a combination of Afghani and Skunk #1 that originated from the breeder Mr. Nice Seed Bank. With a large “critical mass” of production, branches tend to snap from the weight of these dense buds. Flowering time is approximately 6-8 weeks, with a heavy leaf to flower ratio. However, due to the large production of flowering, this strain is susceptible to mold which can be reduced by growing indoors to reduce humidity. THC levels of this strain may reach 19-22%.
Critical Mass Experience
The high from this herb is extremely physical. You can expect ample couch lock. The strong body high can last up to a couple of hours, making this Indica the perfect choice for a movie night. In low doses, you might find that this strain promotes an expansive, creative euphoria.
There is also a high-CBD version of this strain, with 1:1 or 1:2 ratios of THC:CBD. This variety is a cross between the original Critical Mass and another high-CBD strain. The result is an Indica that grows equally as vigorous as the high-THC version.
