Sativa Indica

Effects & Usage



A famous sativa flower, Green Crack does well to live up to its name. This potent cannabis strain – blessed by legendary weed aficionado Snoop Dogg himself – is well-known for its head-high and energising effects. With high THC levels between 13-22%, this flower is a must-try for all sativa lovers.


Like with most sativa strains, Green Crack hits you hard and strong. Perhaps, that’s why this bud is named so – because of the instant kick you get within just a few puffs. But unlike its artificial and addictive namesake, this marijuana flower is more geared towards a positive experience rather than a frenzied one.

It is the best of what the sativa variety offers – uplifting your body and mind. You find yourself with increased energy levels instead of a sedated, couch-lock mode. Enhanced focus, boost in creativity and motivation, and inspiration is to be expected on Green Crack.

Owing to its powerful mental effects, it is a strain best suited for daytime use and wake and bake. The high lasts for several hours, getting you through the day quite easily. Hitting the gym, finishing an art project, compiling code, or appreciating the beauty of music and movies, Green Crack promotes a sense of appreciation for all things around you. It leaves you more energised than usual, with your mind blooming with thoughts and ideas.

If you don’t want to feel overly energetic or hyperactive, it’s best to avoid smoking Green Crack at night. On the other hand, if you are a night person, Green Crack can offer a great opportunity to contemplate in peace and quiet.


Green Crack has limited medicinal properties. It can assist in combating fatigue, exhaustion, and stress and provide clarity for individuals prone to anxiety and depression. However, it is important to proceed with caution as over-use of high-THC cannabis can result in paranoia, panic, and confusion – especially in those with mental health issues. Users with a low to medium THC tolerance may also find themselves overwhelmed.

In such cases, users should practice responsible use by being mindful of their limits or try microdosing.

Side effects

Green Crack can potentially make you overly active and restless and produce some psychoactive effects. People who use it late at night may find it challenging to fall asleep. In addition to this, dry mouth, itchy eyes, and mild paranoia can occur.

Taste & Smell


Green Crack is a testimony to the impeccable combination of taste, flavour, and experience. Its alluring scent is a mix of fruity and earthy notes, ranging from pungent pine to mouth-watering mango. You will taste the tropical goodness with its fruity and citrusy flavors, spice, and a hint of earthiness.

To top it all off, Green Crack boasts a stunning appearance, with its beautiful green buds in a subtle purple background, and vibrant red-orange pistils, all surrounded by glistening trichomes.


Origins of Green Crack

Cush, Green Crush, and Mango Crack are just some of the original names of this mind-blowing strain. However, Snoop Dogg renamed it Green Crack owing to its potent cerebral effects.

There are two versions of this variety circulating in the market: one is Indica-dominant for medicinal use, and the other is the famous sativa-dominant we have seen in this review.

Little is known of the Green Crack origins, except it hit the scene in the 1990s, and its lineage features a cross of Skunk No. 1 and an unknown indica. Some say it was an Afghani landrace strain but ultimately, who knows?

Growing conditions

Green Crack is a fast-growing cannabis strain that thrives in warm and sunny climates. It is best grown in temperatures between 21-29°C and high humidity levels. This strain can be grown indoors and outdoors and reach a height of up to 1.8 metres. When grown indoors, Green Crack has a flowering time of around 9 weeks and can yield up to 550 grams per square meter. Outdoors, it can yield up to 600 grams per plant. With proper care and growing conditions, Green Crack can produce a high yield of dense, sweet-smelling sticky buds.
