Critical Kush: a productive and aromatic indica

Critical Kush is an indica-dominant cultivar high in THC and tasty terpenes. She was born by combining legendary genetics, and represents the family name well. Critical Kush has made her mark on the cannabis world as a soothing and comforting hybrid capable of inducing euphoria and vanquishing low mood.

Critical Kush


Critical Kush was created by Royal Queen Seeds to inject new life into the indica-dominant market. To achieve this goal, breeders scanned through our extensive genetic library. It only made sense to settle on two of our most robust and aromatic indica specimens.

Critical was the first parent strain assigned to the task—an indica-dominant cultivar descending from Afghani and Skunk. Breeders selected the variety for her earthy and sweet taste and smell, along with her high productivity.

OG Kush was another obvious parent to throw into the mix. Our breeders selected the cultivar for her massive indica dominance, high THC level, and complex flavour of pine and fruit. She’s the progeny of legends Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush.

Critical Kush flaunts a genetic makeup of 80% indica and 20% sativa, inheriting the productivity, high THC content, and terpene profiles of both ancestors.


Critical Kush delivers a fast-acting wave of indica relaxation. A joint or bong bowl loaded with these flowers induces an immediate altered state of consciousness. If you’re stressed out, it feels like the strain releases an internal pressure valve. Muscle fibres begin to relax, rumination ceases, and a sense of wellbeing becomes apparent. She’s a perfect strain for the evening to help unwind at the end of a hectic day. These resinous flowers produce a THC content of 20%, medium levels of CBD, and various terpenes (including myrcene).

The presence of CBD makes for a balanced effect, and high levels of myrcene contribute a sedating quality. Medicinally, Critical Kush is anecdotally reported to help with pain, sleeping issues, and low mood. To maximise the effects, use Critical Kush to craft high-potency extracts and edibles.


Critical Kush trichomes spend the majority of the flowering phase pumping out various terpenes. The presence of the monoterpene myrcene contributes tastes and smells of fruit and earth. Other terpenes add a distinct scent of pine to the mix. Altogether, the strain emanates a fresh forest flavour that hints at the pleasures to come.

Buy Critical Kush


As an indica-dominant strain, Critical Kush maintains a short and easily manageable height. She features prominent lateral growth and broad-fingered fan leaves.

Plants cultivated indoors grow to a height of between 60–100cm. They can easily be cultivated in modified boxes or cupboards to keep the operation covert. In this environment, expect a yield of 500–550g/m² after a flowering time of 8–10 weeks.

Plants raised outdoors in containers or beds reach a slightly taller height of 100–140cm, small enough to blend in with surrounding plant species. They’ll produce a rewarding yield of 500–550g/plant, ready to harvest in late September.


Overall, Critical Kush is a superb strain to smoke when looking to relax. The stoning effect releases tension in the body and soothes the muscles. However, medium levels of CBD prevent the mind from zoning out. For this reason, Critical Kush is an ideal strain to use in moderation throughout the day to stay relaxed and focussed. To top it off, her legendary genetic makeup never fails to provide a satisfying harvest!
