Green Crack is a 65% sativa strain that has been around for over two decades, making the rounds in medical marijuana dispensaries from Michigan to California and Seattle.
Originally named “Crush”, the strain was later renamed by none other than Snoop Dog. He named it Green Crack because of the need to keep taking hits of the bud. It is mostly Sativa and stems from the ’89 SSSC Skunk#1 crossed with Indica lineage. It gives a short and light high that has been described as “spacey.” Its easy to understand the play on word “crack” once you experience the energetic and bouncy feeling this strain’s high provides.
The potent citrus smell is the first aroma that is released from Green Crack, which is also how it established its original name “Crush” or Green Crush.
The buds of Green Crack also live up to their name with their distinct bright green hues, along with their orange hairs. The citrus smell seems to transcend into the taste which produces a sweet and smooth flavor with an intense lemon aftertaste. Just a few hits provide an alert and awake feeling that lasts for hours without having to take multiple hits.
Medical users will find Green Crack best for depression, nausea, and as an effective migraine treatment.
The Sativa-classified Green Crack strain is favored among beginner growers and is suited for both indoor and outdoor gardening. It has a typical flowering time of 7-9 weeks and yields a moderate to high crop. When grown properly, the buds should glisten with shiny tri-chromes.
Unique for instant energy and feelings of utter joy, Green Crack is one of the best cannabis strains out there for daytime use.
