Critical Sour is an early-finishing cannabis strain primarily bred for outdoor cultivation. It has an interesting and somewhat unusual background being the product of a Maroc x Grapefruit mother and a father that was a compex auto-flowering hybrid strain of Auto NL x Auto NL x Auto Critical. This father was used in order to speed up the flowering times; although it isn't actually an auto-flowering plant approxiamtely 1 in 30 plants are in fact autos.
This is an easy to grow plant that doesn't grow too tall but which produces very good yields. Being a strain for general outdoor cultivation means that it is a hardy, robust strain. It is an indica-dominant plant with a strong yet flexible stem which is ideal for resisting the wind's attempts to snap it. During flowering it will be apparent that there are more buds than leaves and this facet makes manicuring very straightforward. Its internodes are widely spaced giving plenty of room both for bud development but also for air circulation to help ward of possible mold attacks.
Indoors plants will reach a height of between 80 - 140 cm. taking 8 - 9 weeks to flower with yields typically in the range 300 - 450 gr/m2. Outdoors plants can grow to 250 cm. in height yielding 180 -250 gr/plant with harvests in northern latitudes being anytime during September or early October at the latest. Precise harvests dates will depend on the climate and weather in any given location. Buds are thick, highly resinous, long and quite slender.
The perfume is a mixture of fruity, earthy and spicy and is quite unobtrusive making this a great "stealth" strain whose smell shouldn't alert those whom you don't want to alert. The flavour on the inhale is reminiscent of the pineapple pheno of Grapefruit with spicy and earthy undertones present. The effect comes on very quickly and has been described as an instant body high. The sheer power and couch-locking ability of the Critical and Auto NL blend with the greater subtlety of the Maroc and Grapefruit strains. The body is enveloped in a pleasant sensation whilst being happy and upifting.
The known medicinal benefits of the Auto NL carry over to Critical Sour and helps relieve pain, stress, anxiety, nausea and arthritis.
