Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 65% Sativa / 35% IndicaTHC: 15% – 25%A perennial favorite, Green Crack is a sativa-dominant hybrid that was bred by inbreeding Skunk #1. Green Crack is usually sativa-dominant, but there’s also a less popular indica-heavy version of the strain. Green Crack got its name from Snoop Dogg, though it’s also known as Green Cush or simply Cush among smokers who prefer not to reference cocaine.
Green Crack has branched into two genetic lineages, the most common of which is its sativaline descended from Skunk #1. The 75% indica variety of Green Crack is said to have come from an Afghani strain, and is marked by a tighter bud structure. Because its name perpetuates a negative image of cannabis, some people have taken to calling this strain Cush (with a ‘C’) or Green Cush instead.
The Green Crack strain can actually be traced back to the 1970s. Originally the strain was called “Cush”, and as legend has it, the strain was renamed Green Crack by the OG of the cannabis community, none other than Snoop Dogg himself. Supposedly the name was born because of the extreme potency and the craving to keep smoking it. Although the strain was created on the East Coast, it can be found across North America and is now most popular on the West Coast as a staple on most dispensary menus.
Green Crack was originally bred in Athens, GA in the 1970s with the birth name of Cush. It was later renamed “Green Crack” by none other than Snoop Dogg because of its extreme potency and the crave to keep smoking it. Green Crack is extremely popular in Southern California with both medical marijuana patients for its strong sativa effects, and recreational users who love its sweet taste and happy high. Green Crack has a medium-green color punctuated with orange and bluish hairs. It has a tangy, fruity smell (thus the nickname “Mango”) and the taste is sweet as well. There are two strains of Green Crack: one that is almost pure Sativa and one that is 75% Indica. The better known phenom is the sativa dominant strain, and the only sign of indica genetics being present are the tight nugs.
