Green Crack CBD proves that with hard work and determination anything is possible. If it hadn’t been for the excitement we felt when carrying out this project or for the belief that we had a very special thing on our hands, we would have thrown the towel because… it has taken us four years to create this strain!
Green Crack CBD is indeed one of the greatest achievements of the Humboldt Seeds team. Four long springs spent selecting and breeding with a single thing in mind: to make our cannabis seed catalog more varied by meeting the ever-stronger desire of the market to enjoy quality strains with more moderate THC levels. And the truth is that we couldn't be happier with the result since Green Crack CBD is not only an incredibly functional and balanced marijuana strain but she also showcases each and every of the traits that have made her parents so loved by growers all over the world. A fragrant cannabis queen with a well-deserved place among our most valuable jewels.
Green Crack CBD: the new generation of therapeutic marijuana
We are nowadays facing a change of the paradigm of consumption. The main objective during these last 25 years has been to increase the THC content in cannabis genetics because the illegality framework marijuana was in meant the psychoactive effect had to be as strong as possible. The risk of offering an illegal product obviously boosted its price and so consumers wanted incredibly potent genetics that would allow them to recoup their investment. Lately, though, marijuana seems to be coming out of the shadows of the black market, more and more countries are joining the regulatory wave, new needs are appearing and users are increasingly demanding strains with lower THC levels. Given the situation, we set out to create a CBD-rich cannabis strain capable of meeting the needs of those who don't feel like going through a heavily psychoactive experience but prefer to benefit from the many therapeutic properties these cannabinoids can offer. That's how Green Crack CBD is born. The apple of our eye, a strain that masterfully combines the so-coveted traits of her parents with all the benefits of CBD, obtained by using our most powerful weapons: the most technologically advanced techniques and our breeders' amazing experience. This brand-new CBD-rich version of the legendary Green Crack has a moderate psychoactive effect thanks to her high cannabidiol content, which is a powerful cannabinoid that counteracts the negative effects of THC by offering protection against the typical marijuana high. This strain is still nicely stimulant, though, showcasing 6%-9% THC levels and 9%-12% of CBD. Her CBD content is then higher, leading to a 1:2 ratio. Green Crack CBD is suitable for daytime use since she allows users to perform daily activities without any interference. This is possible thanks to her balanced and sustainable effect. People suffering from backache, for example, will definitely benefit from the outstanding properties of this strain, since she can alleviate pain in the morning without causing bewilderment or preventing them from leading a normal life. She can perfectly be consumed while working because she helps focus and act with determination towards a clear aim.
The icing on the cake: a captivating flavor
Green Crack CBD owns an intense aroma with strong notes of mango, pineapple and pepper. If we take some time to savor her exquisite taste, we'd realize how well the two scents of her parents match. Obtaining such an amazing blend of flavors hasn't been an easy quest, but we knew from the very beginning that we wanted her both to showcase certain levels of cannabinoids and to be a real delicatessen. With Green Crack CBD, we have succeeded in developing a delicious strain where these orangey and piney notes, inherited from the CBD-rich strain, meet the exotic mango and gassy undertones of Green Crack. A marvelous blend that has won us over for being, from our point of view, the best flavor to be found in a CBD strain.
A lengthy process that has clearly paid off
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIlUK8PdPuU The selection process took that long because we wanted Green Crack CBD to present a very specific cannabinoid percentage as well as a certain terpene profile. That's why it was so hard to find the perfect pollinator. We started out with thousands of seeds, from which we selected only those with not only the cannabinoid levels we were looking for but also the precious aroma that would make her unique. Fusing those two traits together was a real challenge that we were determined to meet, since we knew that only this way could we create something special never seen before on the market. We can say that, despite it having been a lengthy process, each and every person within the Humboldt Seeds team has played a major role in the creation of Green Crack CBD, and we are very grateful for that.
Major resin production and a blaze of color
Green Crack CBD is a unique hybrid with little to do with the other therapeutic cannabis seeds. Rapid vegetative growth, with big and thing leaves, and an incredibly strong rooting system. Thanks to her ample internodal spacing, light reaches the lower sections of the plant and grows ideally in SCROG. This Sativa-dominant marijuana strain stands out for her heavy resin production as well as for being a real beauty to behold, with an overwhelming blaze of purplish, reddish, orangey and lime-green colors covering her body.
Some grow tips…
We recommend staking or trellising, particularly during the flowering, to support her massive bud sites and prevent branches from bending. This CBD-rich version, finishing in some 9 weeks, is far more resistant than Green Crack to fungi (mildew, powdery mildew…), reason why she's such a great choice for cultivation in wet/cold climates. We want to shine a spotlight on her versatility, though, offering great results also indoors or in dry, hot climates. An all-around version that will make growers' lives far easier. Green Crack CBD presents all the features cultivators look for when choosing a real cannabis jewel:
- vigorous growth
- resistance to disease
It is also advisable to use organic farming techniques and compost tea to feed your soil if you want the plant to thrive. The bigger the microbe population is and the better the result will be.
Why use compost tea?
Compost tea contains thousands of beneficial microorganisms that improve soil, which means sugar levels rise and, consequently, the number of terpenes goes up. After using it a couple of times, you'll notice the plant's improvement, which is perceived not only through the senses (her scent becomes more intense), but also by carrying out lab tests. To boost the potential of Green Crack CBD, we recommend applying compost tea once during the vegetative phase and once at the beginning of the flowering.
Green Crack CBD, a flavor that goes beyond the vaporizer
We advise those who regard vaping as the best way to consume this therapeutic strain to wait a couple of minutes after puffing until the delicious orangey and piney notes of Green Crack CBD show up because they take a bit to fully appear.
