Before we dive in, we want to clear up any confusion and make sure everyone is all on the same page. Yes, Critical Cure CBD is a marijuana strain because it contains between 5-8% THC, whereas CBD, cannabis, and hemp strains legally have to contain less than 0.3% THC.
As its name suggests, the Critical Cure CBD marijuana strain was created to be used to help relieve more severe types of physical and mental pain caused by trauma or chronic illness.
CBD Critical Cure or more commonly referred to as the Critical Cure CBD marijuana strain was birthed at Barney Farms — which hails from Amsterdam. This strain is crossed with the Shanti Baba CBD and Indica Critical Kush which gives users a heavy-hitting body high, and a clear mental high that allows users to still retain all motor functioning.
As with most quality medicinal marijuana strains, Critical Cure offers the high potency and low intensity high many ill patients are looking for. They want to enter into a euphoric, relaxed and peaceful physical and mental state that temporarily absolves them from their daily pain. The high CBD content contained in this strain will prevent users from becoming jittery, anxious, foggy-headed, or lethargic, but instead just calm, cool, and collected.
The Critical Cure CBD marijuana strain is so multi-faceted it can be used day or night, and before or after work. For those wanting or needing stronger symptom relief — it is recommended you start with larger doses than if you were consuming regular low CBD high THC strains.
Individuals that are sensitive to THC or that suffer from anxiety and depression will feel a sizable shift in their moods and overall outlook on life. The small amount of THC allows users to mentally let go and induces feelings of euphoria, and the high amounts of CBD will curb any anxiety, paranoia, sleepiness, and laziness that may otherwise have been brought on by the THC.
In fact, many doctors have started to recommend this and other high CBD strains to help patients manage their depression and anxiety naturally.
Doctors will also recommend the Critical Cure CBD strain to those who need help managing:
- Chronic pain
A very minimal yet smooth high will take place, but many people won’t realize its kicked in until they suddenly notice less pain or that they are feeling unexpectedly happy — making the overall experience very therapeutic and healing. While this cannabis strain won’t knock you out, it will rid most users of mental and physical pain.
Although Critical Cure is primarily used medicinally, some enjoy it on a recreational basis. Anyone looking for a slight high without the lazy, couch-locked feelings, or mental delays common to most recreational marijuana strains; it leaves you relaxed enough to feel good without rendering yourself useless.
Recreational Critical Cure uses:
- After finding out bad news
- Before watching Netflix
- After a bad day
- Before going to dinner with the in-laws
Just keep in mind that this strain won’t help you become more talkative or come out of your shell the way alcohol does, but it does allow you to feel less anxious or jittery in social situations.
Flavor and Smell
Upfront, an earthy and pungent aroma is apparent, followed by a faint berry smell. As the buds get broken apart, you’ll notice a strong fruity smell will start to emerge. The flavor aligns perfectly with the smell — providing a fruity, citrusy flavor with a hint of earthiness. The smoke itself is smooth and typically doesn’t cause a harsh burn or coughing fits on the exhale.
Barney’s farm, the creators of the Critical Cure strain has released seeds in its feminized form for this strain to live on for future generations. The plant itself takes after its Indica-dominant parent, taking on a short and sturdy appearance. Naturally, it does optimally in warm, sunny environments, but it can thrive in cooler and even windy climates because it’s somewhat wind resistant.
Critical Cure growers need to be mindful of the fact that they’ll need to keep it trimmed to keep moisture from building up within its thick leaves. Too much water can completely ruin your crop, but if grown correctly, you can expect a 7 to 9-week flowering period and a 21-25 ounce yield.
Much to our dismay, marijuana still isn’t legal everywhere, and since this is technically considered medical marijuana — it’s not sold everywhere.
If you do happen to live in a legal state, we have found it is more commonly used in the following cities:
- Los Angeles, CA
- Clovis, NM
- Cook, WA
- Portland, OR
- Beaverton, OR
- Chicago, IL
If you don’t live in a legal state, you could always purchase CBD oil, tinctures, or edibles. Until then, your only other option is moving.
Critical Cure CBD Strain User Reviews
“The absolute best CBD strain out there. A perfect balance of calming and pain relief, this is my go-to for inflammatory pain.”
“This is my favorite strain for surgically removing anxiety. It’s precise. It has a mellow berry flavor and the taste is smooth. 2-3 puffs on a joint and anxiety is just gone.”
“I tried this strain out of curiosity, never having tried anything like it. The High itself was fantastic, the pain in my back and feet dulled decently and my wife and I laughed and smiled for hours watching baking shows. However, the ‘woody, earthy’ profiles given to Crit Cure are really just a nice way of saying it smells and tastes like armpits. Might be my grower, might not. It is a great strain for medical users, the head high is mild while the body high and pain relief are strong. As I would expect. Just beware the painful process getting there.”
Critical Cure is a heavy CBD and an Indica-dominant marijuana strain was created to be used medicinally; offering extreme symptom relief from chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.
