Yes, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, this strain really is named ‘Green Crack’. A high grade genetic wonder by MSNL, this is one fantastic plant that offers the kind of powerful high and sublime flavour that will keep you coming back for more and more. These qualities are what led to the strain earning its controversial name, given to it by none other than the legendary cannabis connoisseur, Snoop Dogg, to emphasise its strength and moreish qualities.
Thankfully the unconventional name is where any raised eyebrows should end, as Green Crack is primarily a fine example of top quality bud that just seems to do everything right. Birthed from crossing an original Sensi Skunk #1 with an unidentified indica from California, few other strains can beat the quality and power of MSNL’S Green Crack.
The ‘crack’ reference was certainly inspired largely from the strength and effect of the strain, with its 18-21% average THC level effortlessly taking you into the stratosphere. Genetically it is a fairly balanced hybrid, sporting a 60% sativa and 40% indica split that offers plenty both mentally and physically.
However, the whole experience definitely leaves one with the impression that this is firmly sativa dominant. The ride begins quickly with a near-instant head rush that will leave your face tingling as you begin your ascent. Repeat lungfuls will see you rise higher and higher before the indica side of the plant becomes apparent, warmly consuming your body with waves of relaxing physical bliss.
If this sounds good then you’re in luck, because a few drags on Green Crack can see you occupied for hours. This strain really is as long-lasting as it is powerful, with its energetic and powerfully uplifting sativa side mingling with the sedative indica for an all-consuming and highly satisfying experience. This makes it ideal for both daytime and evening use, its effects stimulating enough to prepare you for the day ahead.
Medically its properties make it useful for a wide range of ailments. Its energetic side can wash away fatigue and lethargy while its relaxing nature makes it useful for overcoming insomnia. Alongside this are the usual conditions that cannabis can help with, including stress, anxiety and aches and pains.
Green Crack is one strain that loves the outdoors, rewarding those putting in the effort to grow outside with bigger and richer yields. Doing so may net you 35-106oz per plant while an indoor harvest will see you getting around 10-15oz per yd2. Even if you can only manage an indoor growing setup, however, you may find Green Crack irresistible enough to grow regardless.
Showing the best of its skunk genetics, Green Crack grows quick and dense. It is not such a demanding strain if the right conditions are met, and may even be suitable for newbie growers. In its swift eight to ten week flowering time the plant will develop thick stems that are lined with heavy buds. Also demonstrating its sativa-dominant genetics, the plant will generally grow to a boldly sized 100-180cm with some plants even exceeding 4m in height outdoors.
Indoor growing is a feasible option, though a few precautions should be taken. Firstly, the strain is sometimes susceptible to mould, meaning good air circulation through fans or ventilation is necessary. Secondly it can produce quite a strong odour in its growing stages, so measures may need to be taken if housemates or neighbours will object to them being there.
Outdoors the plant really thrives, growing higher, yielding more, and giving a better quality of crop. To get this, however, the plant will need to be grown somewhere with plenty of natural light and a consistently warm climate. Outside too you will find the plant emitting quite a strong odour, so it may not be suitable for everybody’s circumstances. The plant has a short flowering period, however, and those that can meet its requirements will see Green Crack rewarding them with their harvest late September.
As well as its previously mentioned qualities, Green Crack earned its name from its moreish flavour too. It exhibits a deep fruity taste with a soft sweetness to it, with notes of mango maturing into more complex flavours as the bud matures. These include hints of spice and an earthy pine taste that make this taste experience so much more complex and satisfying.
Similar to the taste, much of the joy in Green Crack comes from its equally delicious smell that reflects the complexity and sweetness of the flavour. As the sweetness and mouth-watering fruity sharpness combine, the odour of the growing stages suddenly becomes worth the inconvenience. This matches its alluring bright green nugs that grow thick and dense, providing the kind of tactile experience that lets you know good times are nearby. This all adds up to creating a strain that lives up to its name and makes Green Crack one phenomenal genetic wonder.
