This strain was originally known as "Cush," but Snoop Dogg, a renowned cannabis connoisseur, changed its name to "Green Crack" after experiencing its potent sativa effects. Although some people still prefer the term Cush to avoid any unwelcome stigma associated with cannabis, everyone agrees that they adore this earthy and delicious variety. Originally developed in Athens, Georgia in the 1970s, Green Crack is thought to have some Afghani landrace indica in its ancestry and is a direct descendant of the perennially popular Skunk #1. Despite its gritty moniker, Green Crack is more likely to leave consumers inspired and motivated than frantic. Offering the best of what sativa variations have to offer, it's a terrific strain for raising your awareness of your surroundings or just to help you get moving. A small amount of this can be very potent, especially for cannabis enthusiasts with greater experience. For those just starting out in cultivation, Green Crack is a variety that is quite simple to grow. It can thrive both inside and outside, while outdoor growing needs a regular source of sunlight and constant temperatures between 72 and 80 °F. Indoors, where conditions can be managed, it is easier to grow. Strong lateral branching allows plants to grow up to 3 to 4 feet tall. When cultivating these plants, growers should engage in "topping," which is removing the large leaves at the top of the plant to let light reach the lower stalks and encourage the production of as many buds as possible. In comparison to other sativas, Green Crack flowers very quickly, maturing inside in 7–8 weeks and outdoors in October, when it is ready for harvest. Per plant square footage, the production is strong but ordinary, averaging 41 to 46 grams (or 1.4 to 1.6 ounces). Growers must take special care to cure the harvested buds properly in order to maintain the flavor and potency of Green Crack. Curing entails drying the buds by hanging them upside down for about a week in a room that maintains 50% humidity and a constant temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by sealing the dried buds in wide-mouthed jars in ambient conditions of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and between 60-65% humidity.
