Royal Critical Automatic was created to retain the very best characteristics of the photoperiod Critical, but with greater ease of cultivation and a much quicker life cycle. Why wait out the extra weeks of flowering when you can crop a Critical harvest in no time? This feminized autoflowering cultivar takes the already hardy genetics behind Critical and adds ruderalis to the mix to speed things up.

With a THC content of 14%, Royal Critical Automatic isn’t quite as potent as the original, which some consumers may enjoy. This hybrid contains significant sativa and indica influence, making it a good smoke during the day to stay productive and focussed, or to use in the evening before bedtime. The high of this strain is characterised by the relaxing and euphoric effects of the original Critical, with less potential for couchlock.

As implied by its name, Royal Critical Automatic will flower automatically, regardless of light schedule. This makes it an easy-to-grow plant that is especially suited to beginner cultivators looking to grow Critical. Even more experienced growers will enjoy the big, dense buds that waft intoxicating aromas at the end of the flowering phase. Scents of wood, spice, and sweetness will dominate the terpene profile. In just 9 weeks post-germination, this Critical variant will be begging for the chop.


Royal Critical Automatic will grow to around 55-65cm in height. Although small and bushy, it has an open structure which allows for greater light penetration to all areas of the plant. This means bigger and better harvests. With yields amounting to 165g/plant of delicious, sweet-skunky buds, there are many reasons why Royal Critical Automatic deserves a special spot in your cannabis garden.

    Title : Sehr Gut
    Comment : Leider sind nur 2 von 3 Samen gekeimt. Aber die gekeimt sind sind wahre Monster, sie sind mit anderen Autoflowern von RQS gar nicht zu vergleichen, wachsen sehr schnell und gesund. Zu der Blüte/Geschmack/Geruch/Wirkung oder Erztrag kann ich noch nicht viel sagen aber ich erwartet viel nachdem was ich so sehe.

    Title : Royal Critical Auto
    Comment : Bought these for a 9 week growing opportunity in a sunny location and looking forward to seeing the results. Of the 3 seeds planted, 2 are growing really fast. The 3rd sprouted mutated leaves but has now developed two stems so interested to see how it turns out

    Title : RC auto
    Comment : Got 5 seeds from a friend and all germinated in soil just in 4 days. Two are growing better than other 3 but I have no complains about them, not at all. (friend told me his didn't germinate as well but he put them in water, not in soil, maybe that made a difference)
