Flavor and Appearance
Although this strain is heavier in its sativa content, its flower structure follows that of a traditional indica. Its buds are small and clustered, olive green, and coated in a layer of frosty trichomes. In some cases, if the temperatures are lowered during the growing process, you will be able to notice threads of purple throughout the buds. The flower tends to have a bright citrus scent, with faint notes of earthiness and wood. When broken down, you can expect this strain to fill the room with a pungent aroma. Its flavor is similar, and often compared to fresh mango with additional, lighter notes of hash and spice. It’s rumored that this strain has distant relations to Afghani, so its subtle aftertaste helps support that case.
Because of how heavily sativa influenced Green Crack’s high is, it’s mostly used to treat mental illnesses, rather than physical afflictions. For those who deal with depression and chronic fatigue, this strain can effectively bring about a burst of energy and positivity. As the high progresses, the user will find themselves lost in thought or deeply engrossed in their activity of choice, allowing for negative thoughts and emotions to fade. If you need some extra energy and motivation to get your day started or to cross of some tasks, this strain can be really helpful. In lower doses, Green Crack can be beneficial to those dealing with anxiety and chronic stress. It’s heavily psychoactive effects can definitely be a positive, but especially for those prone to feelings of anxiety and panic, its best to take it slow with this strain.

The flowering period is about 7 to 9 weeks depending on your growing method, and naturally occurs in mid October when grown outdoors. Once you’re ready to harvest, you can expect an average of 18 ounces per square meter indoors, or 20 ounces per plant outdoors.
