An indica-dominant hybrid strain, Critical Purple Auto-Flowering feminized cannabis seeds trace their lineage to popular Critical Mass and Big Bud. Originally, the pair were bred together in order to improve the yield and stability of Big Bud. Critical Mass is known for extremely heavy, dense flowers, and our Critical Purple cannabis seeds carry on this desirable trait.
One of our highest THC strains, Critical Purple is a potent plant, expressing its indica roots with a heavy, relaxed effect. If you’re new to marijuana or even just to this strain, you may find early treatments with Critical Purple leave you feeling completely sedated, but whatever your tolerance, this strain is certainly best kept for evening or nighttime use.
In addition to sedation that can ease you into a deep, restful sleep, Critical Purple is known for reducing chronic pain, calming anxiety and stress, soothing nausea, and even lessening headaches and migraines. The strain can also serve to enhance appetite, a helpful side effect for people who are suffering from an eating disorder or undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments for cancer. In the latter instance, Critical Purple’s anti-emetic quality is also helpful.
Our Critical Purple cannabis seeds have been paired with a cannabis species called ruderalis. While this type of plant does not do much to alter the effects of the strain, it does make for very easy growing. Auto-flowering plants utilize hardy, Russian-born ruderalis’ ability to proceed completely unaided into the flowering stage; this means the grower need not worry about the ideal time to alter the lighting hours in the greenhouse.
As such, Critical Purple cannabis seeds are quite easy to germinate and grow, and do very well indoors, in a hydroponic or soil planting medium. Though they require a long flowering period – as many as 11 weeks – the results are well worth the wait. When harvest time arrives, the bushy plants will have produced numerous buds full of medicinal and recreational possibilities; expect up to 450 grams of fresh flower per square meter indoors, and about 300 grams per plant, outside. The “Purple” in the name refers to the purplish tint that growers may discover on the thick, heavy flowers.
