Though it is a sativa-dominant hybrid that consists of 65% sativa and 35% indica, Green Crack displays the attitude and character of pure Cannabis Sativa. While there is an indica-dominant variety of the strain, it is less desirable than it's sativa counterpart. It is believed to be derived from the process of inbreeding the cannabis strain Skunk #1
, as well as crossbreeding with an unknown Afghani Indica. It emerged in the 1970s out of Athens, GA, yet no one knows exactly who cultivated it or exactly what indica strain accompanied Skunk #1.
Cannabis connoisseur and hip-hop giant, Snoop Doog, named the strain after sampling it's highly stimulating effects. For some, this name is uncomfortable due to its reference to cocaine, and the names "Green Cush" and "Cush" have been coined as alternative references to the strain.
Though its bud structure is that of a classic indica with small, clustered nugs rather than the densely packed buds of the sativa, don't let it fool you! Green Crack has been reported to be moderately addictive due to its high THC-potency, which can reach levels of up to 25%. The leaves are on the cusp of pale green and yellow, and may even display streaks of purple if the marijuana has been exposed to cold during the cultivation process. They are also coated in a dusty film of trichomes that will stick to your fingers and catch your attention with their dazzling glimmer. When cured correctly, Green Crack has an aroma that begins with sharp notes of citrus, followed by mild lingering undertones of earth and wood.
When it comes to inhalation, the smoke is smooth, and it leaves tangy remnants of mango on the top of the palate and back of the tongue. On exhale, the smokes behavior becomes slightly hashy with hints of spice, perhaps an indicator of it's Afghani lineage. Green Crack's high is powerful, buzzy, creative, and very focused. It provides users with uplifted boosts of energy and sometimes psychedelic tendencies such as time dilation and visual/auditory distortion with high enough doses. While it's medicinal uses are limited because of it's high potency and pure sativa attitude, it can be affective for those who struggle with fatigue, anxiety, and depression, however, if one were to take too large of a dose, it could indeed backfire and cause more anxiety and paranoia.
