Green Crack Benefits/Effects
What’s in a name? A lot, actually. The name is both on point and totally off-base.
Green Crack is 100 percent cannabis with none of the horrible things that come along with actual crack. But it will also energize and invigorate you like few other sativa strains can. Reportedly named by Snoop Dogg, once you try it, you totally get it, but many people call it Green Cush instead due to the stigma.
Green Crack has high THC levels of 16 percent on average and up to 24 percent, which makes for some trippy and energetic high that’s perfect for daytime use. This strain has low amounts of CBD, further ensuring that its potency will keep you uplifted for hours. Green Crack has been popular among American consumers recently, and in 2015 it took 3rd place in the sativa category at the Denver High Times Cannabis Cup.
Few cultivars, even among the sativa-dominant strains, can compete with the intense focus and massive influx of energy you get with Green Crack’s lasting mental buzz. A useful marijuana strain for coping with medical conditions such as fatigue, PTSD, and depression, not to mention ADHD. Green Crack is a great all around daytime strain and can even provide relief for some migraine sufferers.
If you love a strong, buzzy, sativa head high, Green Crack an awesome choice. Even the dullest tasks, from doing the laundry or mowing the lawn on down, will get a lot more amusing with the help of this strain.
This is also a great choice if you’d like some slightly psychedelic effects, to focus in on creative projects in a new way, or take in some art or music or just a movie—but in a new way. You’re likely to experience that old time stretch feeling using Green Crack and sometimes visual distortions.
Obviously, this is not the right medical marijuana strain for nighttime use—unless downing many cups of coffee late at night is your thing, we don’t judge. The best part about it is, you’re more likely to feel jittery after coffee than you are after Green Crack, which won’t leave you feeling anxious or over-energized (unless you’re actually trying to sleep).
Green Crack Taste and Smell
Green Crack has a fruity, tangy flavor that will remind you of citrus and mango with subtle hints of woody earth and skunk from its Skunk #1 parent underneath. A hit of this sativa-dominant smoke is smooth and a little sour on the palate. Notes of spicy, peppery hash emerge on the exhale—maybe from Green Crack’s Afghani heritage.
Green Crack Cannabinoid/Terpene profile
Although Green Crack has high THC content, don’t expect to find more than trace amounts of CBD or other cannabinoids in these nugs. The predominant terpene found in most samples of Green Crack is linalool and myrcene, followed by pinene and caryophyllene in moderate amounts, and finally trace amounts of humulene and limonene.
Green Crack History and Genetics
Originally bred in Georgia by Cecil C. in the 1970s, the Green Crack marijuana strain is a cross between a Skunk #1 and an Afghani landrace. At first this cultivar was called Cush, but then it became a super star sometime after it was renamed by Snoop Dogg. “Green Crack” refers to what the cannabis activist and musician found to be notably strong sativa-dominant hybrid effects.
If You Love Green Crack, Try These Strains
If you like the social buzz you get from Chocolope or Sour Diesel, and a little more citrusy flavor appeals to you, Green Crack is a great strain for you. If you love the pain relief of White Widow but want more energy, and you’re a big fan of the Super Silver Haze pick me up but a little more focus would be ideal, Green Crack is your perfect strain.
Or maybe you love the party that happens in your head with Strawberry Cough or Cinderella 99, but you want something a little more business-y for your wake-and-bake routine? Green Crack is very similar in effects to both, but a little less silly and even more energizing.
Growing Green Crack Strain
Despite its seriously pure sativa feel, Green Crack cannabis plants show a classically indica structure, with small, dense buds that are closely clustered together and chunky. Green Crack leaves are light green to darker yellow, occasionally streaked with purple under colder growing conditions. Burnt orange pistils and dense, milky-white trichomes make these plants sticky, shiny, and amazing to look at.
Surprisingly easy to grow, Green Crack is a great choice for first time growers. It can thrive inside or outside, although it grows more readily indoors under carefully controlled growing conditions with strong light and consistent temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees F. It is also critical to minimize humidity levels, because Green Crack is quite susceptible to powdery mildew.
Green Crack marijuana plants can reach 3 to 4 feet tall, and benefit from the support of strong lateral branching. Growers should maximize bud production by “topping,” or trimming larger leaves at the top of the canopy to allow light to reach the lower stalks. Flowering time for Green Crack is a relatively quick 7 to 8 weeks, with a yield of about 18 ounces per square meter.
Remember, Green Crack is really only at its best and most potent when it is properly cured. First, dry the buds upside down for approximately one week at a steady 50 percent humidity and 70 degrees. Then, seal the dried buds at 60 to 65 percent humidity and 70 degrees.
