Critical Purple Auto-Flowering Feminized Cannabis Seeds

1. Breeding History of Critical Purple Auto-Flowering Cannabis Seeds

1.1 The History of Critical Purple Auto-Flowering

Critical Purple is a unique and obscure strain born of a cross between two popular indica-dominant strains: Critical Mass and Big Bud. Let’s first take a look at each of these strains individually.

Critical Mass is derived from an Afghani landrace strain and the popular Skunk. With a sweet and earthy flavor, this heavily indica strain is known for its euphoric and sedating effects, and its ability to help people regain appetite, fight depression, and ease pain. Critical Mass often has a higher CBD content than other strains, and at Growers Choice we do sell CBD Critical Mass, which has minimal THC levels.

Big Bud also hails from Afghani and Skunk roots, with the addition of Northern Lights. Another highly relaxing and sleep-inducing strain, Big Bud can battle insomnia and soothe away stress, and has even been seen to lessen inflammation, which is helpful to patients struggling with auto-immune disorders.

Together, these strains create Critical Purple, originally intended to provide some stability to unpredictable Big Bud. Boasting sky-high THC levels (about 27%!) and the densely packed flowers typical of Critical Mass, Critical Purple auto-flowering cannabis seeds are an obvious choice both for first-time gardeners and savvy aficionados.

1.2 What does ruderalis do?

Our Critical Purple is even more unique than most because we have added ruderalis into the mix, which renders our strain an automatic variety. Ruderalis, originating in Russia, is an industrial hemp-like cannabis species that does little to alter the THC levels and effects of cannabis strains, but does pass on its almost magical growth period transition powers. Because summers in Russia are short, ruderalis has developed the ability to automatically switch from the vegetative stage over to the flowering stage after two weeks of growth, rather than relying on the shortening of sunlight hours like most strains.

As a result, people growing auto-flowering cannabis seeds don’t have to worry about picking the right time to make the switch – they can simply leave their lighting the same for the duration of the growing period.

Ruderalis also causes cannabis plants to be smaller and stockier, and shortens the overall growing time by as much as 2 weeks.

2. Physical Appearance

2.1 What does Critical Purple Auto-Flowering look like?

Critical Purple has mid-level green leaves which may showcase some hybrid features (narrower leaflets) or have full-fledged, wide indica fingers. The flowers and possibly the leaves could have some traces of purple – hence its name – which showcases the existence of anthocyanin, a pigment found in produce, with many proven medical benefits.

Critical Purple is bushy and dense, well-laden with large buds thanks to its Critical Mass heritage, and will give you a considerable yield despite its small stature.
