Crystal is a child of celebrity parents, destined for her own renown. The Crystal mother derives from the legendary White Widow strain. White Widow set the standard for “White” strains. White Widow is a tall plant with delicate arms and moderately compact copiously resinous buds.
To breed Crystal, we backcrossed White Widow with famed daddy Northern Lights. This Northern Lights leans to the sativa side with a powerful, energetic, and very social buzz.
As would be expected, this marriage produced a plant with a lot of good genetics. Crystal is a fine indoor plant, whether the garden is a soil or a hydro system. Soil-based gardens bring out more complex flavors and aromas, while hydro setups delivers more commercial-style buds that are compact and easy to trim, but diminish this plant in the smell department.
This F1 hybrid grows quite aggressively, so growth should be controlled. Toward the end of flowering, all branches have to be staked and supported. Fortunately, the high bud-to-leaf ratio from her Northern Lights father makes Crystal a pretty easy plant to manicure. When placed into flowering at 16 inches, Crystal can easily reach 3 feet at maturity. Her growth structure makes sea of green an efficient choice, although we has seen greenhouse gardens where Crystal was grown as a multi-branched plant. These greenhouse ladies reach 6 feet in height and yield 1.5 lbs of high quality bud per plant.
Crystal’s sticky buds have noticeable kerosene overtones – a clean but pungent lawnmower whiff. The effects are quick hitting, producing an all-around high that can be felt in both body and mind. In other words, the stone reflects the balance, acceleration, and power of Crystal’s parentage. Crystal took first place in the Dutch High Life Cup in 2002.
The hit of this cannabis plant will take a moment before it will kick in until it creates a rush for added fun and excitement. The slight delay of its effect is not an issue because it is all about the smoke and crystal seems to score high on this. It is said that crystal is absolutely good for party lovers who are craving for a taste of pleasure. This is suitable when you invite your friends to come over your house and try to enjoy the effects of crystal cannabis plant.
Crystal can also be used to treat people who are suffering from epilepsy and other disorders related to this.
