A Dynamic Buzz of Body, Mind and Soul
An exotic, Sativa-dominant cross between two notable strains, Green Crack x Core Feminized beautifully blends the mood enhancement and energy bursts of parent Green Crack with the tamer, slightly more Indica effects of Core to create a truly invigorating hybrid.
Green Crack - famously renamed by the rapper Snoop Dogg after he deemed her high so similar to the narcotic - is renowned amongst the cannabis community for her energizing and enlivening cerebral effects. Combining this with the lesser-known second parent, Core, has resulted in a marijuana strain that is pleasingly citric-sweet in scent and somehow calming in her energy.
Mixing notes of pine, earth and citrus to create a refreshingly smooth smoke, Green Crack x Core is best enjoyed using a water bong to avoid her acrid aftertaste.
Medical marijuana patients will take comfort and ease from a few tokes of this strain, as she’s particularly effective at easing the mind and soul into a state of calm, providing effective relief from a variety of mood disorders and mild PTSD among other struggles.
Cultivating this beuaty is a simple enough affair, particularly with all-fem seeds that mean growers need not worry about pesky males to remove. Her Core lineage makes for a strain with big buds and decent yields in an unusually short grow time, making her a great choice for newbies.
Flavor and Fragrance of Green Crack x Core
Refreshing and invigorating in flavor and effect, Green Crack x Core perfectly balances the tasty sour-sweet tang of citrus with a herbal, pine-like aroma that combines into a smooth creamy smoke to delight the senses.
A tendency towards bitter, acidic flavors in the taste of this strain can often leave an unpleasant aftertaste that may induce coughing. We would recommend using a water bong if this is the case, as such a method is likely to soften and smooth out the harshness of the flavor.
A swift-acting high, you can expect the sensations of Green Crack x Core Feminized to hit within a minute or so of your first toke, beginning with a faint tingling that begins around the eyes and face before settling into an energizing buzz.
As this energy spreads and intensifies throughout the body, you’ll find your senses begin to heighten, enlivening dull external stimuli until your interest is caught in the smallest of things.
Take a few moments to enjoy the improved mood and clear head that Green Crack x Core brings with her, as the rest of the physical effects will take some time to follow. When they do, you’ll find your extremities feeling looser and more relaxed, as her Indica properties soften the muscles and release the spirit, enveloping you in a feeling of wellbeing and happiness.
This can be an enlivening strain, but it all depends on the dosage. Keep it low, and you’ll keep your alertness and ability to move. Smoke a little more, and you might find your limbs growing too leaden and lazy to do much at all.
Overindulgence, it should be warned, could lead to heightened anxiety and paranoia in extreme cases. More commonly, you may experience dry eyes, cottonmouth or dizziness if proper care isn’t taken.

Growing Green Crack x Core Feminized
Remarkably similar to her parent strain, Green Crack, the hybrid that is Green Crack x Core Feminized is arguably a tamer plant, and easier to grow due to her enhanced growth patterns. With a quick flowering time of 7 to 9 weeks - excellent for a Sativa-leaning strain - and a short to medium height, these ladies don't take up much space, and either way, they won’t be there for long with such swift flowering tendencies.
Growing her with hydroponics or organic soil indoors will boost yields and ensure that Green Crack x Core is provided with the correct nutrients to thrive. If you’re looking to maximize on space, a Sea of Green (SoG) setup is recommended, and you’ll find she’s a sturdy strain with generous internodal spacing, so very little pruning is required.
Light is important for this particular strain, and we recommended a 600 to 1000 watt HPS/LED grow lamp to encourage a harvest of between 350 and 500 grams per square meter.
Should you attempt to grow Green Crack x Core outdoors, you may find she flourishes and provides an even more impressive yield. Ensure your plants are exposed to plenty of sunshine, and you might find yourself with up to 500 grams per plant.

A cloud of delightfully smooth smoke with a pine-like, citrus aroma that’s hard to resist, nevertheless, her taste can be a tad astringent and harsh on the lungs. This might be a bud that’s best consumed from a water bong if you don’t want to bring on a mild coughing fit with a toke.
Enlivening you within minutes, Green Crack x Core will soon intensify into a dynamic buzz of body, mind and mood before easing you down into muscle-softening relaxation and sedation.
An excellent and potent choice for those who are weary in body and mind, this hybrid is wonderfully effective at soothing away anxious and negative thoughts and replacing them with a clear head and an untroubled outlook.

A little hydroponics or organic soil will give her what she needs to thrive, and with the right light, you can quickly find yourself with a healthy 350 to 500 gram yield.
