Critical Mass regular seeds (Mr. Nice Seedbank)
This commercial cannabis strain is not all about giant colas and heavy yields. Critical Mass would never be so popular without the instantly likable high: very strong, yet mellow and cheerful. For a habitual smoker, it could be a daily companion. Novice users are advised to adhere to the 4:20 rule though, using this pungent and earthy-smelling treat for evening relaxation alongside a big bag of Cheetos and a Netflix subscription.Read more

Critical Mass Strain Info
The strain’s predecessor was the famous Skunk #1, which became practically synonymous with super potent indoor weed. It has a long history and is among the best varieties of ‘old-school’. Critical Mass is a reworked version of the classic, and has only gotten better with time. These seeds are regular and can be used as a basis for highly rewarding breeding projects.
To keep all the desirable characteristics of the original genetics and enhance them, the breeder, the legendary Howard ‘Mr. Nice’ Marks, crossed it with an especially heavy phenotype of an Afghani Indica. The resulting hybrid turned out to be huge, resinous, and pungent-smelling. If anything could be better than the original Skunk #1, it’s definitely Critical Mass.
Expect the typical all-round ‘old-school’ buzz that engulfs your whole being, mind and body alike. The effects are easy to regulate by dosing (or your level of tolerance). This marijuana strain can be your best work companion or a strong sedative and antidepressant remedy that will help you enjoy your evening after the most exhausting day.
Smell And Taste
The strong influence of Skunk in its genetic makeup makes this weed extremely smelly, while the Afghani adds the rich taste of earth to its thick and pleasant smoke. Critical Mass has that recognizable terpene profile that most people associate with the classic ‘dank’.
This is where Critical Mass really shines. You can easily harvest as much as 750g/m2 (2.5oz/ft2) indoors, and outdoor yields are likewise impressive at up to 600g (1.3lb) per plant – plus, you don’t have to wait for them too long.
Plant a Critical Mass next to other varieties, and odds are that it will be the first one to finish. To flower it indoors, you’ll need as little as 45-55 days, while outdoors, fully mature buds can be harvested in September (March in the Southern hemisphere).
This strain is famously beginner-friendly. However, its record-breaking yield potential can lead to problems with mold and bud rot, which must also be taken into account.
- Use defoliation to let air to every bud site.
- Constantly check buds for signs of mold.
- Never harvest too late, especially outdoors.
Critical Mass Seeds
This is a classic strain that’s been up for sale for ages, and the price is therefore quite low. Just remember that these are regular seeds, so buy twice as many as you would if they were feminized, as some will grow into male plants.
