Critical Cure CBD Strain

Critical Cure CBD Strain

Critical Cure CBD strain confuses some people when they first read the name. To clear up any confusion for you; YES Critical Cure CBD is a marijuana strain, not just a CBD product. It is an Indica-dominant cannabis strain that has a higher CBD level and a lower THC level, making it desirable to medical patients. This strain typically yields 8% CBD and a low 5% THC content.


Critical Cure CBD marijuana strain is referred to as CBD Critical Cure or more easily just Critical Cure. Birthed at Barney Farms; this strain is a mix of the legendary Indica Critical Kush and crossed with, what is guessed as Shanti Baba’s CBD enhanced strain. There is still some debate on if its parent CBD strain is truly Shanti Baba.

With a parent strain of Critical Kush; consumers know they are getting a heavy hitting mind and body high, without the psychedelic mind effects. People refer to this as a clear mind high where users can still function.


Like any good medical strain, Critical Cure is sought after for its low intensity and potency. People use this strain to achieve a relaxed, euphoric and peaceful state. With such high CBD content, consumers can be rest assured this strain will not leave them foggy headed or over jittery, but will be helpful as a therapeutic medication alternative.

Great for use in the morning, during the day or at night. For those looking for a stronger effect, it is suggested you take a larger dose than you typically would with standard cannabis strains.

Medical Effects

Those sensitive to high THC strains that want help with anxiety and depression can get great benefits from Critical Cure. Often times strains will benefit anxiety or depression, but not both at the same time. Doctors turn to this strain to help their patients cure both, and it doesn’t leave them feeling overly paranoid.

Doctors also suggest this strain to those who need help with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritis
  • Inflammation
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia

Because of the low THC level, this won’t trigger minds to become overactive making it safe for those with mental ailments. Users won’t notice a rush to their body, change in the form of over numbness or mind numbness like they might with other strains.

A short, smooth high will happen and people don’t even realize the effects have hit until they are in the middle of it. This can make the overall experience healing and peaceful. It is because of these strain traits that parents are open to using this specific cannabis to help their kids with medical illnesses. While it won’t annihilate your body it will completely rid users of any unwanted pain.

This cannabis won’t knock you out, but it can help clear the mind allowing consumers to enter a sleep state. Instead of using Nyquil or Melatonin, save your liver and use CBD Critical Cure.

Recreational Use

This strain is primarily used as a medical marijuana strain, however, people still use it recreationally. Those who want a slight high without feeling couch locked or those who get paranoid easily are big fans of Critical Cure. Users compare the strain to drinking two beers after a rough day. It can give you a relaxed enough feeling without rendering you useless.

Recreationally used by people:

  • After a bad day
  • After finding out bad news
  • Before watching Netflix
  • Before going to dinner with the in-laws

Critical Cure won’t be beneficial in giving you the giggles or helping you be talkative and therefore isn’t recommended in social situations where you are trying to be the life of the party. On the other hand, it can aid those in social situations that make them feel anxious or jittery to feel relaxed.

New users are often urged to start with strain because of its attributes, and it can be a nice welcome into the marijuana world.

Flavor and Smell

A strong upfront, earthy aroma is apparent with this strain, followed by a slight berry aroma. Once the buds are broken apart a stronger fruity smell will hit your nose. Some people compare the overall smell to tobacco which isn’t the most appealing to consumers.

Smoke density is often referred to as smooth, which is a nice bonus for people who typically choose to smoke their cannabis. Users can know they won’t have a burning feeling in their lungs which means no coughing fits will ensure. Flavor matches the smell to this strain, and tastes earthy and fruity, with citrus accents.


Barney’s farm has been super helpful in the growing process, and they have truly gone above and beyond for fellow growers. They have released seeds in the feminized form, which can assure brand-new growers of a garden full of female plants.

The plant takes after its Indica-dominant appearance and is short in stature, but is still sturdy. Another benefit to new growers is the ease of the climate in which Critical Cure can grow in. It will thrive best in a warm and sunny climate, but can also grow in cooler ones.

Growers in windy valleys can still produce a great crop because this plant is resistant to wind. Putting in stakes within the plant can help the plant grow abundant and can also help those growing in a windy valley from having stalks break.

Growers should be aware that they will want to trim the bushes frequently to prevent moisture from collecting within. Too much moisture is this plant’s worst enemy, and it can completely ruin the crop.

Critical Cure has a flowering period of about 7 to 9 weeks and can produce a yield of around 21-25 ounces.

Popular Cities

Unfortunately, while this isn’t legal everywhere, it is considered medical marijuana so it is available in more cities than recreational cannabis.

Critical Cure marijuana is popularly used in:

  • Chicago, IL
  • Beaverton, OR
  • Cook, WA
  • Clovis, NM
  • Portland, OR
  • Los Angeles, CA

If you live in a state where marijuana isn’t legal yet, your only option is to move. Moving out of state is no doubt an expensive cost, but if it can help you or your family medically, overall it’s beyond worth it. Remember even those states where it is medically legal, it is only legal under state law and federal law still trumps.

Consumption Availability

Being a popular medical strain; consumers can find this available in flower, edible and concentrate form.

Edibles are suggested for children and those who aren’t fans of smoke. Remember edibles take 30-60 minutes to kick in, so give it time before you go ahead and take another dose.
