For many more reasons than one, CBD is extremely high in popularity right now for its medicinal qualities. There are also a lot of former cigarette smokers that are turning to CBD products for their fix because of the very low THC. The Critical Mass strain is popular as of late not for its THC yield, but CBD instead. Originally, Critical Mass is a cross between Afghani and Skunk #1 to produce a heavy hitting indica strain. It was then bred with a pure CBD clone that has become a serious crowd favorite in the recreational market.
The question then arises—why Critical Mass? Couldn’t any strain be bred with a pure CBD clone to produce a strain high in CBD? The answer to why Critical Mass works so perfectly as a CBD strain are its naturally medicinal effects. This strain has been a go-to for pain relief and relaxation in medical patients for years. The buds are so dense from this strain that it’s almost like breaking a rock open when you’re preparing a bowl. The aroma from this strain is earthy yet sweet, and entices you in like grandma’s cooking. You’ll also whiff pine and lemon. These terpenes and flavonoids all play a role in giving Critical Mass its medical benefits.
If you’re looking for a strain that is known to produce pain-relieving effects this is it. It can also help with deterring stress, and even inflammation. On the growing side, this strain only needs 55 days to flower and is even willing to grow in tight spaces. When bred it comes out to a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. The high amount of CBD in the buds will counteract the psychoactive effects of the existing THC and give the perfect balance of relaxation and gentle entourage effect.
