Critical Mass is an indica-dominant strain whose name refers to its very large tops - some even capable of breaking branches in half. This marijuana strain has a fairly high THC concentration, ranging from 19 to 22 percent, which is a very good result for a strain with such large tops.
The Critical Mass marijuana strain provides a strong body numbing effect that can make users feel lazy and sedated. Most users report that Critical Mass clears their mind while increasing creativity and concentration, but too large doses can put them in a lethargic state.
The effects usually last 2-2.5 hours, depending on the dose. Like almost all strains with high THC content, Critical Mass consumed in larger quantities can cause dry mouth and eyes, as well as paranoia and anxiety.
This strain is most often recommended for use in the evening or at night, due to its strong sedative effects. For the same reason, it is a good strain for insomniacs who need rest. The indica genes in the Critical Mass strain can alleviate chronic pain, as well as relieve stress and anxiety. Others choose this strain for migraines, nausea and lack of appetite.
Critical Mass is the creation of Mr. Nice himself. A hybrid of Afghani and Skunk #1 strains, this strain is often grown by novice growers for its yield and effectiveness both indoors and outdoors. The plant flowers for 6 to 8 weeks and is susceptible to Sea of Green training.
