For established stoners, there's a selection of strands which we all go back to at some point, a universal repertoire of danktronics. We all have come to know and love OG, Sour Diesel, G.D.P., etc. Today I'll be discussing Green Crack.
I've always heard of Green Crack in sentences like "Dude!... Green Crack!" or "Dude, lemme get some of that Green Crack." This set up my perception of the strain to be good from the get go. However, like with all the standard strains, you have to take authenticity into account. Some of the first herb I'd ever seen with seeds was labeled as GC. With the authentic stuff, you are going to be a happy camper. Very happy... Maybe hungry too.
I recently came across some pretty cute nugs of the stuff. I'd say it's definitely a wonderful sativa that keeps you going without any couch lock.
With that, it's not that special relative to what everybody has worked it up to be.
But... it is damn good. Very well rounded and legit. It might not be that face melting or that stimulating to one's olfactory sensations, but yeah it's good. All the italics are just me being a snooty connoisseur. An adequate explanation might be that it's the Sierra Nevada of herb. It's good and probably better then what the generic frat boy might drink, but next to a good Chimay, there's a clear difference.
My reflections are as follows:
Price: if you find it for 50 clams for an 1/8 ounce, go for it. I wouldn't put it in the 60 dollar range though. If you find it at cheaper than 45, you're probably dealing with its ugly little brother instead of the real thing. That ugly little brother might suffice, but if you're a connoisseur you can do better.
Smell/Taste: Good. It's not going to smell in the other room, but you'll be satisfied probably. The taste is good too, but I've had buds with more body and spice to them in my day.
Side effects: It's a good clean sativa, you won't be too couch locked or inclined to go to sleep. I would take advantage of it with your favorite tunes, a good movie, etc. Not ideal for pain treatment or insomnia.
