Since her release in 2005, she has become more and more successful, with many awards honouring her value.
Outdoors, she thrives in temperate Mediterranean climates or under the protection of the greenhouse. Her only weak point is her limited resistance to moisture but, thanks to her fast growth, she’s rarely affected by it. Performing well with SCROG and SOG, any trimming technique can be used on her (topping, fimming, super cropping. ). Her aroma is so intense that you’d better opt for guerrilla growing outdoors and not for your city balcony or terrace. Indoors, using anti-odour filters is essential to prevent the neighbours from taking notice of our crop.
At Dinafem Seeds we felt the urge to create something really special. How did we do it? By crossing a Big Bud with a selection of Skunks, we obtained a remarkably charismatic marijuana strain with an amazing overall quality. One of the most highly regarded strains of our collection and the favourite of many growers!
One of the most courted ladies by worldwide cannabis growers
Perfect for: People looking for a tasty, potent, productive and fast strain
Critical + turns into very Sativa-looking marijuana plants: tall, sometimes reaching heights of 2.5 m outdoors, with large internodal spacing and jagged, thin and elongated leaves. However, she is very quick, a trait more typical of Indica genetics. Her buds are large, heavy, compact and full of resin.
Critical + is a slightly Indica-dominant THC-rich strain, meaning she delivers a physically relaxing and narcotic effect that is suitable for people suffering from stress. A balanced high that starts with a very pleasant cerebrally stimulating sensation and turns more relaxing as time passes by.
Critical + is an all-in-one feminised cannabis seed regarded as one of the greatest cannabis ladies of all time: she grows very easily, she produces spectacular yields, her taste and aroma are simply unbeatable, and her potent effect provokes an impressive ‘high’ that everyone wants to try.
Our Critical plant is an Indica dominant genetic which shows in its small size, staying below 1 metre tall. It has short internode spacing, which will eventually fill up with buds, making it the high-yielding specimen it is. Its small height also makes it suitable for those looking to grow in small spaces, for the more discreet growers.
No other plant from Royal Queen Seeds will yield as much in 7 weeks as Critical Feminized. This short flowering time makes it suitable for growers with a tight schedule. Commercial growers will be pleased with the results in sea/screen of green operations as it delivers large yields with very little maintenance.
Only 7 weeks of flowering
There are always lots of requirements to fill when deciding which strain to grow: strength, yield, flavour, ease of growth, suitability to climate etc. There is one marijuana plant that tries to bring together all these features in a perfect balance in order to produce the ultimate cash crop: large yield, short flowering period, good smoke. Critical is a plant designed for the ‘cash-crop’ grower who wants the best of both worlds and is guaranteed to fulfil expectations.
Grown indoors, it will average 65-75 grams per plant and can easily hit 600 grams per square metre under a 600W light. Grown outdoors, it prefers a warmer climate such as in Spain, Italy or California and, given the right conditions, will produce over 600 grams per plant. Due to its relatively short flowering time, it can be grown in more northern latitudes (UK, Netherlands); however, it will not reach its full potential as she would indoors.
The final key to a good commercial crop is a solid smoke; it wouldn’t make sense to have such a high-yielding plant with no power in the puff. Therefore we are glad to say that Critical offers just as much in the stone as it does in the yield. It brings a nice stoned effect which mellows you down into a relaxed vibration.
We require users to be 21 years old or over, please confirm your age.
This Critical strain provides the optimal blend of cerebral and body effects into one strain. When smoking it, there’s a nice active head high that combines with a warming and soothing body buzz. It’s a strong stone, but not one that’s overpowering. Essentially, you’re getting equal amounts of calming, couch-lock effects with a productive and creative heady stone.
Top Auto Strains
As a labour of love strain, we are happy with the volume of cannabis that it’s capable of producing. It was our intention to breed a big-time producer, and that’s exactly what Critical does. Also, it grows well indoors and out, is meant for any skill level of grower, and has wonderful bodily and cerebral effects packed into one strain.
Here at MSNL, we worked with more than 10 different Critical Mass phenotypes and five Big Bud phenos to arrive at the best version of a Critical strain we could devise. Not only can you expect high yields when growing this strain, but you can also expect moderate THC levels of 15 to 18%.
This easy to grow high yielder makes for an awesome commercial plant. When we say high yields, we’re talking upwards of 600 grams per M2 or more. It’s a beautiful sight to see, and it doesn’t take long to get there with flowering times of only 8 to 10 weeks putting the outdoor harvest around late September. When grown indoors, you may need to guide the plant a bit, but overall it’s a great plant for beginner growers and is super simple for master commercial growers to pull off.
