Award-winning. Highly potent. Resinous. High-yielding. These are some of the adjectives cannabis connoisseurs have used to describe Crystal cannabis strain. This hybrid comes from a long line of high-achievers and has done a commendable job maintaining the family image. Crystal is sought-after by medical and recreational consumers alike for its relaxing and mind-clearing effects.
Overview: Crystal is the revered child of multiple award-winning Northern Lights and White Widow, a strain used as a genetic foundation of tons of cannabis hybrids. This Indica dominant variety takes on the best characteristics from both parents and boasts 15% to 25% THC. The varying potency is a result of different cultivation methods and the experience of cultivators. What is certain is that the Crystal strain is very potent and should be approached with caution. This is especially true if it’s taken in high doses.
Appearance: True to its Indica genetics, this strain grows to a maximum height of 180cm. The plant is short, bushy, dense, and sturdy. Thanks to its high-yielding nature, Crystal has multiple budding sites. The nugs are fat, lush, and dark green. Its leaves are broad and filled with numerous trichomes, giving it a crystal-like appearance (hence its name). The red-orange hairs add to the hybrid’s visual appeal.
The Crystal strain is relatively easy to cultivate as it is highly resilient and requires minimum care. To attain maximum yields indoors, a grower needs to use soil or hydroponic setup combined with LST. After 9 weeks of flowering, the strain produces 500 grams per meter square. In an outdoor setting, Crystal thrives in a warm and sunny environment. In October, one can harvest up to 700 grams per plant.
Taste and smell: This hybrid has an inviting scent that draws the consumer near and leaves them anticipating a puff. It has an intense sugar, fuel, and pine aroma that dominates during its growth, up to when it is combusted. The subtle citrus notes are from its white widow heritage and add to the strain’s appeal.
The smoke is thick, cloudy, and gentle, making it ideal for novice and casual consumers. The palate is hit with an irresistible sweet, fruity, and piney flavor that keeps consumers anticipating more during inhalation. During exhalation, notes of citrus can be detected.
Effects: One thing to note about Crystal is that it is a creeper strain, meaning the effects may take some time before presenting. Consequently, it is advised that a consumer waits for up to 30 minutes after consuming the strain to avoid overdosing. That said, Crystal offers a mind-blowing, memorable high that lasts long.
The balanced effects allow the consumer to experience total body relaxation while enjoying some cerebral buzz that keeps them uplifted, happy, and focused. The strain’s couch-lock effect will make the bed or couch seem very appealing. Expect some hunger pangs as Crystal is known to stimulate appetite.
Medically, Crystal alleviates various conditions such as pain, inflammation, fatigue, stress, depression, anxiety, PTSD, appetite-related issues, and insomnia.
