Chrystal Strain Genetics
Chrystal, from Nirvana seeds, has its roots in two world famous and powerful, varieties: Northern Lights (Afghani Indica x Thai Sativa) and White Widow (South Indian Indica x South American Sativa). The mixture of landrace genetics at play here means Nirvana seeds have produced a balanced 70/30 indica hybrid, with a strong high and a good combination of sativa and indica effects. The name comes from the plant itself which produces sticky, resinous bud during flowering, which is frosty from trichomes.
Chrystal Strain Terpene Profile
You’ll smell the kerosene-like aroma of Chrystal a long way off: she’s pungent and powerful. Underneath that dominant scent you will get earthy notes along with some pine, thanks to the terpene Pinene. The taste is sweet and sugary. Growers take note: the strength of Chrystal’s genetics mean she has a lot to draw on. You can influence the final flavor and aroma with your choice of growing material. Soil-based growing should bring out the most of the complex tastes whereas hydro will help reduce the odor.
Chrystal Strain Effects
The effects from Chrystal are a combination of head-high and body-stoned. She’s notable for the speed with which she hits and the pleasant combination of sativa and indica effects. Smooth and easy on the throat she won’t have you coughing, and the clear head-high that she kicks off with is pleasant and sociable. A good choice for enjoying with friends.
Medical Benefits of Chrystal Strain
Chrystal is an F1 hybrid, as such her genetics are pure and powerful. Though not a specifically bred medical strain (low CBD) her high THC ratio (15-20%) may well be beneficial to conditions that react well to that cannabinoid, such as migraine, headaches, and neuralgia.
How to Grow Chrystal Seeds
Already pretty popular with both beginner and more experienced growers, Chrystal is best suited to an indoor set-up and will give you little trouble once you have conditions right. You need to keep a close eye on her once she gets going because she grows fast! As flowering progresses, the branches will become heavy with the big, sticky bud that she produces in large quantities.
Chrystal’s structure makes the strain well suited to a Sea of Green (SOG) approach. Easy to manicure and dry, you should have little trouble preserving the best of her varied flavor profile. Give her the full grow time for best results.
