If you're looking for a perfect daytime strain, Green Crack is one of your best bets. This sativa-dominant hybrid has energizing and mood-boosting effects, which come on quickly and can last the entire day (and possibly into the next). Its parent strains are a combination of Swiss Cheese and Skunk.
So, while its parents have proven themselves over the years, Green Crack is a new strain that has been grown in the last five years or so. Green Crack's tangy, fruity flavor redolent of mango may help consumers fight depression in addition to fatigue and stress.
It originates in the Bay Area of Northern California. Its effects include a happy, uplifted high that can be felt throughout the body. Its negative effects include increased heart rate, anxiety, and dry mouth. Green Crack may be a great choice for consumers who want to relax and unwind, but its high isn't particularly relaxing or sedative.
The THC content in Green Crack ranges from about 15% to 23%. For this reason, it's easy to over-consume and experience negative effects. However, if you don't have an edible, drinking or vaporizing may help reduce the chances of overconsumption.
Growing may take as little as 6 weeks when temperatures are above 75 degrees Fahrenheit and the days are above 60. A simple soil-based grow will provide good yields of about 1/2 pound per square foot.
Feminized seeds are usually available in late September in California but can be purchased year-round. It is best to start indoors but can be grown outdoors as well (a good regimen for those who live in a colder climate).
