Green Crack was born when a 1989 Super Sativa Seed Club Skunk #1 was crossed with an isolated Afghani cutting thereby creating this sativa-dominant, vigorous, Christmas tree-structured plant.
Green Crack is 60% sativa and can grow into a large plant if left to its own devices outdoors. The implication for indoor growers is that this is a strain that will only require a short period of vegetative growth as the flowering stretch could easily outstrip limited space. Apart from limiting its height before being put into flowering a ScroG system or LST would also help to control its vertical growth. This plant shows a very good resistance to both mould and a range of plant pests.
Indoors growers will obtain yields of between 350 - 525 gr/m2 in 60 - 65 days of flowering. Outdoors, where plants can grow to anywhere between 1 - 3 meters or even more, yields are very good indeed falling in the range 1 - 3 kilos of dried bud each with harvest taking place at the end of September/early October in northern latitudes. Green Crack has a delicious smell of ripe fruits with a complex palate of citrus fruit, mango, pineapple, cedar wood and incense. THC production is a high 18% with 0.1% CBD. The effect is strong and lasts a long time; it is euphoric, invigorating and cerebral and will thrill Skunk lovers.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
