This variety is actually rather unusual for this category as it has an ancestry that's primarily from the sativa family of cannabis, a type that's not normally associated with medicinal pot. In breaking this mold, Royal Medic offers a lot to anyone in need of pain-relief. The two biggest advantages I'm going to mention here are its analgesic qualities and its growth habits.

Chemistry Lesson

First of all, cannabis actually possesses two psychoactive drugs in its make-up: tetrahydrocannabinol or THC and cannabidiol or CBD. It's CBD that's considered the more medically useful chemical. This drug can be used to treat such things as chronic or acute pain, muscle spasms or cramps, inflammation, insomnia, and anxiety.

The ability to induce sleep, better known to you more experienced users as couch-lock, can be a drawback, though, in a lot of situations. THC, on the other hand, is the chemical responsible for the exhilarating buzz ganja is traditionally linked with. Sativa-derived strains are typically loaded with this drug which, I might add, can be used medically for ADHD. In spite of a pedigree that's three-quarters sativa, Royal Medic resin is around 12% CBD versus 10% THC.

In case you're wondering about marijuana's reputation for the munchies, I'll add that both THC and CBD can stimulate an interest in food.

The Right High

Among cannabis strains, Royal Medic is one of the better sources of CBD. The inclusion of large amounts of THC might seem like a problem for medical users but it really plays a beneficial role. As I've pointed out, CBD can put a user to sleep. With its moderate levels of THC acting as a stimulant, Royal Medic lets your mind remain clear without getting too high. If you're using this strain for medical needs, you probably don't want to create additional long-term health problems.

It's true that with aromatic hydrocarbons and tar, smoking marijuana can pose nearly the same potential threat as standard cigarettes. Luckily, there are substitutes like vaporizers and pot brownies. Eating marijuana in food is easy enough but the drug can take too long to grab hold. I'd recommend a vaporizer since it provides rapid delivery minus the carcinogenic components.

Using this approach, you can also enjoy knowing that you're using a powerful pain-reliever that, unlike highly dangerous opioids, has never led to any recorded overdoses.


Size-wise, this marriage of Critical and Juanita La Lagrimosa favors its Critical lineage by growing to about a meter and a half or five feet outside. Raising it indoors can shorten it by 30 centimeter to around four feet. Royal Medic also inherits Critical's qualities of a moderate growth period of nine weeks from planting to flowering and a high load of buds.

If planted outside, you can expect the harvest the first week or two in October, making it suitable for all but the coldest of climates. When Critical's genetics are combined with Royal Queen Seeds Company's feminization process, bloom production really shines. While outside returns can be slightly lower, in a controlled environment, you can expect up to 625 grams of output.

That equals just over one-and-a-third pounds. Once put to work, you can expect a heady fruit flavor and lemony aroma that, like the ratio of CBD to THC, are gifts from Royal Medic's Juanita La Lagrimosa background.
