Critical Kush is an indica strain that delivers powerful, full-body relaxation and soothing mental effects. It is the brainchild of Barney’s Farm, the Amsterdam-based growers who have given us such powerful strains as LSD and Liberty Haze. Critical Kush is a cross between Afghani-descended Critical Mass and none other than OG Kush. Cannabis testing lab gives this bud consistently high marks, with THC measurements between 16% and a whopping 29%. With that kind of potency, Critical Kush is almost certain to put you in critical condition. Critical Kush sets itself apart with medium to large-sized nugs of resin-filled goodness. The buds are densely-packed, as you might expect of a pure indica. Leaves are a bright shade of spring green and are twisted through with deep orange pistils. A network of shiny trichomes covers the inner and outer surfaces of these large buds, making them very difficult to break up without the help of a grinder.
It’s a good choice for an evening indoors, spent working on mindless tasks like cleaning. If you’re riding a more sleepy vibe, it’s also a great option for binge-watching or for zoning out to some soothing music. Although Critical Kush can be fun in social situations, note that it can trigger couchlock in higher doses, and may make you less willing to actively engage with company. It should go without saying that, because of its heavily sedative effects, Critical Kush is better suited to evening than to daytime use.
