For many years, Critical has delighted users and breeders alike. The former are in love with its numbing body high, while the latter have used its genetics to develop incredible new hybrids. Apart from its psychoactive properties, it’s also famous for the massive buds it produces. These flowers are weighty enough to break their own stems, but that’s precisely the reason commercial growers rely on it so much – it’s a real cash crop.
Critical’s highly acclaimed relaxing high is influenced by an Afghani landrace, but it’s the addition of some Skunk #1 genes that gives it such a satisfying mental kick.
When it comes to picking seeds, growers have a few options. Autos often make the most sense due to their fast growth rate, but the quality doesn’t normally compare to photoperiod seeds. As a compromise, and to make the best of both worlds, you can choose these Critical ‘Fast Version’ seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. The plant remains dependent on light cycles, but also has a quicker flowering time (by at least a week) without compromising on yields.
Besides being a great leisurely toke, Critical Fast Version has, on average, a higher CBD content than the regular, feminized seeds and autoflowering seeds versions. This may improve its medicinal potential.
Aside from the quick flowering time, Critical Fast Version seeds are also feminized, which means one less potential headache for home growers. Keep an eye on the plants as the seedlings develop, just in case a male plant has crept in. If you spot one, remove and discard it to prevent accidental pollination.
Critical rarely exceeds 3.5 feet tall, making it ideal for even small grow rooms. It produces numerous branches with additional bud sites – and considering the density and weight of the nugs, this translates into an abundant harvest. When grown hydroponically in a Sea of Green setup, the flowering time could be as quick as six weeks. Under 600w lights, growers can expect a yield of up to 1.96 ounces per square foot.
Outdoors, in a warm climate, this cultivar will be ready for harvest by mid to late September, but it tends to produce smaller yields than indoors. One significant factor is the fast growth rate which does not give it enough time to reach full its potential. On average, each plant will produce about 3.5 ounces.
The Skunk lineage is evident in Critical’s intensely sweet and citrusy scent. The flavor profile does not deviate much from the bouquet, and a pine nuance beneath the lemony tang makes for a fascinating treat.
Skunk did not only influence Critical’s fragrance and flavor. It also gave it a pronounced euphoric cerebral high at the onset, which enhances the mood and promotes mental clarity and creative thinking. In some instances, it may also provoke deep introspection.
After some time, the physical effects start to manifest, beginning with a calming sensation that soon envelops the whole body. It ushers in a contented, tension-free buzz that’s likely to make physical activity a no-no. By and large, Critical will not leave you feeling utterly devastated, but it does come with a high amount of THC. Overindulgence, though, is strongly discouraged.
Critical Fast Version carries on the tradition of its distinguished lineage. This family tree of cultivars has made its mark on the cannabis scene for a number of reasons – in particular, the humungous buds.
With these ‘Fast Version’ feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co., home growers can cultivate this high-yielding plant in a shorter period of time, without ever compromising on quality.
