ABOUT GREEN CRACK STRAIN
Originally called “Cush”, this strain was re-dubbed “Green Crack” by none other than cannabis connoisseur Snoop Dogg after he sampled its intense sativa effects. That alone makes this a great tool in treating eating or wasting disorders, but Orange Kush is also a good choice for patients who suffer from anxiety, depression, ADHD, inflammation, migraine headaches, muscle spasms, and aches and pains
GENETICS OF GREEN CRACK STRAIN
It is descended from the ever-popular Skunk #1, but it may also have some Afghani landrace indica in its background.
Green Crack averages 16% THC content.
Green Crack can also have some slightly psychedelic effects, including visual distortions and, particularly, an odd sense of time dilation. Because it can leave users feeling uplifted and fairly wired, this strain isn’t recommended for use late at night.
Green Crack doesn’t have a wide range of medical benefits. However, its energizing effects can be great for freeing users from fatigue.
It can also aid those suffering from anxiety and depression, helping them to live in the moment.
GROWING THIS STRAIN
Green Crack is a relatively easy strain to grow, and a good choice for newcomers to cultivation.
It can flourish indoors or out, although outdoor growing requires a stable source of sunlight and consistent temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
It’s more easily grown indoors where conditions can be controlled.
Plants can reach between 3 and 4 feet tall with strong lateral branching.
Growers should practice “topping” when growing these plants, which involves trimming broad leaves at the top of the plant to allow light to reach the lower stalks and produce as many buds as possible.
Green Crack flowers relatively quickly for a sativa, reaching maturity between 7 and 8 weeks when grown inside and ready for harvest in October when grown outdoors.
The yield is average but solid, producing about 41 to 46 grams (or about 1.4 to 1.6 ounces) per square footage of plant.
Growers should also take care to properly cure the harvested buds in order to preserve Green Crack’s taste and potency.
curing involves first drying the buds by hanging them upside down for about a week in a room that maintains 50% humidity and a consistent temperature of 70 degree Fahrenheit and then sealing the dried buds in wide-mouthed jars in ambient surroundings of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and between 60-65% humidity.
