A very complete strain

There are always lots of requirements to fill when deciding which strain to grow: strength, yield, flavour, ease of growth, suitability to climate etc. There is one marijuana plant that tries to bring together all these features in a perfect balance in order to produce the ultimate cash crop: large yield, short flowering period, good smoke. Critical is a plant designed for the 'cash-crop' grower who wants the best of both worlds and is guaranteed to fulfil expectations.

Our Critical plant is an Indica dominant genetic which shows in its small size, staying below 1 metre tall. It has short internode spacing, which will eventually fill up with buds, making it the high-yielding specimen it is. Its small height also makes it suitable for those looking to grow in small spaces, for the more discreet growers.

Only 7 weeks of flowering

Grown indoors, it will average 65-75 grams per plant and can easily hit 600 grams per square metre under a 600W light. Grown outdoors, it prefers a warmer climate such as in Spain, Italy or California and, given the right conditions, will produce over 600 grams per plant. Due to its relatively short flowering time, it can be grown in more northern latitudes (UK, Netherlands); however, it will not reach its full potential as she would indoors.

No other plant from Royal Queen Seeds will yield as much in 7 weeks as Critical Feminized. This short flowering time makes it suitable for growers with a tight schedule. Commercial growers will be pleased with the results in sea/screen of green operations as it delivers large yields with very little maintenance.

Relaxing and stoned effect

The final key to a good commercial crop is a solid smoke; it wouldn't make sense to have such a high-yielding plant with no power in the puff. Therefore we are glad to say that Critical offers just as much in the stone as it does in the yield. It brings a nice stoned effect which mellows you down into a relaxed vibration.

    Title : Easy and fast grow with Critical
    Comment : Strain easy to grow and resistant to environmental issues and heat make it ideal for summer indoor grow. A relatively low strength (THC) and almost no smell make it better for people who love less strong cannabis

    Title : Ok - but not my type of weed
    Comment : So, I received this seed as a free seed and grew it in my garden along with two other strains. I live in Scandinavia so the summer is short and the autumn gets rainy and cold. It says on the data sheet that this is harvested in late september but this actually took mid-October to reach mature mode. I planted it in late April so this lady took her time. I smoked her for the first time yesterday and boy, I really got stoned. If you're into getting superstoned in an hashish-like manor - this strain is for you. If you on the other hand like to get high and creative, choose another strain. I would swap these crops for some more Royal Cheese anyday. All in all: An ok experience but the effect and the long time it took to grew her will mean she will not get chosen again - from me at least. Therefore: Three stars only. I have nothing to complain about regarding RQS - everything is perfect - and thanks for the free seed!

    Title : 600w HPS,Coco coir, Canna Coco line, gifted seeds
    Comment : Germination: 10/10 Overall health: superb Yield: average Flowering time:53 days Critical can be superb cash crop. However I would recommend to use clones for that, because you have great chance to run into phenotype that gives you super small and rock hard buds (3 of 10 in this grow) with very small yields (very good quality though) . Rest of plants were your classic critical with nice yields and well rounded product that suits almost every smoker. Conessieurs may search for something with more character in it. Critical provides nice taste of skunky, earthy and floral terpenes and effects are nice mix of body and mental high. With higher dosage prepare to get couch locked.

Hey because the lifespan is so short does it work like autos where they change automatically? Or do you have to change the lighting times like regulars?

Royal Queen Seeds Team

Please note this plant is photo-dependent, so you will need to change the lighting.

From Jamie | 2018-06-07 11:57:22

Hey guys does this plant give a odour when flowering

Royal Queen Seeds Team

The smell of your plants would depend on several factors If your plants are healthy and happy their smell will be stronger. Some companion plants can serve a masking function for the characteristic Cannabis plant smell. Here is a link with some basic information about it
