We spoke to our friends at Dinafem, who gave us the lowdown on one of their most popular strains, Critical Mass CBD. Here is what they had to say…
Explain the origins of Critical Mass CBD? How and why did you create this strain?
Critical Mass CBD is one of our first CBD strains. It was born as a joint project along with CBD Crew, and its goal was to create a marijuana strain that combined the great features of Critical Mass with actual therapeutic properties.
What are the unique features that you believe make this strain a bestseller?
Critical Mass CBD is a fast-flowering, indica-dominant, cannabis strain, easy-to-grow, small-medium-sized plant that produces plentiful amounts of large, compact buds covered in resin. It performs well indoors, particularly in SCROG and SOG and responds best to dry climates. Its flavor and aroma are intense and fruity, with hints of lemon, pine wood and exotic wood. The effect is typically Indica, powerful, relaxing and long-lasting.
Like many other CBD strains, Critical Mass is suitable both for recreational and therapeutic use. Since CBD counteracts the effects of THC, it enables recreational users to to enjoy cannabis in a more sustainable and compatible way in their daily lives. CBD is perfect for those people who struggle to cope with strong effects. It can be very handy for therapeutic uses, since it’s perfect to alleviate the symptoms of anorexia, insomnia, muscle pain and depression.
What reactions have you had from customers/media about Critical Mass CBD?
The reactions we are getting are really good. Many consumers, both recreational and therapeutic were waiting for this kind of CBD rich strains, and day by day we are noticing that the demand of this genetics is increasing. We are very glad since we are convinced that CBD is going to play a main role in the progressive legalization of cannabis all over the world.
In the last 40 years, 99,5% of the available recreational genetics have been almost pure THC, since the black market only cares about profit, and very strong cannabis sells for more than not so strong product. But, times are changing, and CBD is now becoming more known and appreciated, and is set to radically change the actual gene pool in the recreational market. CBD-s benefits are many, and are generally regarded as very interesting from the medical point of view. But, recreational users can also benefit from those properties, and that’s what we are working for.
In a legal market, Public Health is the primary issue to tackle, and that’s the incentive to incorporate CBD to recreational strains. Those CBD enriched strains will have different amounts of CBD and therefore different types of effects, from no-psychoactivity to light, to medium, to strong, and lastly the very strong strains that have been the only ones that we have had.
Are there any strains you can compare it to? What kind of grower/user would love Critical Mass CBD?
This year we have launched for the first time an entire CBD collection catalogue. For this catalogue we have chosen our best strains, as OG Kush, Amnesia or Industrial Plant, and cross them with our elite CBD strain. This way, we have managed to create varieties than retain the original properties of the mother plant but with the added benefits of CBD. All the strains of our catalogue guarantee a minimum THC: CBD ratio of 1:1, which can reach 1:2 and even 1:3 in some cases.
The kind of grower/user that would love this strain are, the therapeutic ones and, of course, those recreational who have been on the lookout for strains with a milder effect and which don´t affect them too much in their daily life.
