CRITICAL JACK: PERFECT DAYTIME SMOKE
Critical Jack is a wonderful creation, that belongs to the sativa-dominant family. This easy to grow crossbreed was created from two of the most popular strains: Critical + and Jack Herer. The result is a top-quality hybrid, that will shock connoisseurs with its pleasant and mellow high, that facilitates speech and makes people smile.
SMELL, TASTE AND EFFECT OF CRITICAL JACK
Critical Jack has a pretty high THC content and a medium CBD content. Its sativa nature offers the user a long lasting, psychoactive effect with its focus more on the mental side. The Critical genetics also add a mild relaxing effect to this strain, which remains perfectly suitable for daytime use. This strain has the typical Critical+ aroma, with clear notes of citrus fruit contrasted by a delicate wooden and spicy flavour. The fruity, lemony flavour-rich smoke of this strain also contributes to a mellow, yet potent high, that can stimulate good thoughts, creativity and conversations for a long time.
HOW TO GROW CRITICAL JACK
Critical Jack is easily manageable and has a relatively short flowering period of 8-9 weeks. It is perfectly suitable for both indoor and outdoor growing with just a basic cannabis growing knowledge. The genetic traits of this crossbreed, with its Critical+ parent, make it grow fast and uniform, with well developed branches, while the Jack Herer genetics make this plant tall and with large stems and a higher internode distance.
This plant can give the grower results well above the average, even with little care and no particular equipment. Critical Jack blooms fast and it performs best in a temperate climate or in a greenhouse. Anyhow, it can face poor environmental conditions and resist moisture and the first rainfalls with cooling weather in autumn. This will be the time when its buds will gain volume and trichomes get perfectly ripe. Critical Jack plants are normally ready for cutting after 60 days of indoor flowering, or around the first half of October outdoors, according to local climate.
Critical Jack grows well in a ScrOG system, while growers who start from clones will be convinced by the excellent quality of her cuttings, with strong branches, fast and healthy growth, and a nice root system developing in just 10 days.
Its good bud-to-leaf ratio makes Critical Jack a convenient plant, too. Yield goes beyond 600g/m² indoors and 1kg per plant outdoors. This variety can also give good results in small pots, where just a few buds will develop, yet their resin content will be amazing, just like the one from a big plant.
