The cross of Northern Lights and White Widow created the magical strain called Crystal. These two parents won more cups and prizes than any other strain. It’s an Indica-dominant hybrid with high THC levels and lots of gorgeous crystals, as to be expected given its name.
With a high THC content, this strain has a powerful stone and is better suited for experienced cannabis smokers. Crystal is a strain people reach for to melt away stress, anxiety, and depression. It calms the nerves and over time the buzz has euphoric and mood-enhancing effects. Also, it has the ability to increase appetite and make your couch or bed very comfortable.
Crystal flourishes indoors or out and is a perfect strain for beginner growers. In fact, it’s easier to grow than White Widow. Its ideal outdoor climate is sunny and warm. And when growing indoors, this strain does well in soil or in a hydroponic setup. It can reach medium heights that range from 100 to 180 cm, which is something to consider if you have limited indoor space. Also, the aroma is pungent, especially during the flowering stage. So, make sure to have the proper odor eliminating equipment to avoid any issues with neighbors. Finally, Crystal is a high yielder that can achieve up to 500 grams per M2.
The aroma of Crystal can be described as a heavy skunk mixed with a diesel-like tang. Also, the citrus scent from its White Widow lineage comes through when you smell the leaves and buds in the later stages of flowering. And the buds are dense and fat and of course, they’re covered in beautiful white shining crystals.
Overall, Crystal is an exceptional strain that produces high yields, is easy to grow, has strong medicinal effects, and a stunning outer appearance. And how could we expect anything less from a strain that was given birth by two of the greatest strains of all time — Northern Lights and White Widow.
Crystal is a smooth strain to smoke and on a deep inhale the classic spicy-citrus taste of White Widow comes through along with a sharpness of skunk. The tasting notes also have an earthy and slightly citrus flavour to them.
