About this Hybrid Strain

The breeders at T.H. Seeds out of Amsterdam created Critical Hog by taking the 2002 High Times Cannabis Cup Indica of the year, “The Hog” and crossing it with the potent Indica-dominant “Critical Mass.” The result is an odd-looking strain with long brown leaves, deep streaks of purple, and thick light-bulb shaped buds sporting of a full head of long-orange hairs sprouting from the green flower.

With its bushy red hair and THC levels reaching up to 20%, Critical Hog has quickly earned a reputation as high-powered Indica. The plant smells like a garden of lavender flowers in the thick of a pine-tree forest, with a sweet citrus taste apparent when combusted.

This strain hits hard and fast, with a strong sedative-like narcotic effect according to consumers. The cognitive effect is similar, as the rate at which thoughts come and go gradually slow down. This happens until the user realizes it’s probably easier to not think at all, and the mind becomes empty. With the mind at ease, a state of peaceful contentment is achieved. This is only disrupted by the stomach’s yearning for food and suddenly one is faced with the dilemma of leaving a state of total blissful comfort for the sake of food. No matter what the choice, one can be certain of getting a sound night’s sleep.

Cultivators are loving Critical Hog for being such a simple grow along with its high yields. It can be grown well both indoors and out, responds well to sunlight, and requires little maintenance. Each generous plant can give as much as a pound and a half of flower at harvest time!

Very strong plant. Barely went over 1000 PPM at her peak and she was a beast. The seeds I popped gave me a slight of excellent smoke. Had no problems with rot and my buds were pretty big. My brother and wife love this bud and begged me to keep a mother. Creeper weed for sure, but doesn’t make you sleepy either which is exactly what I look for in 80% of my weed. By the way huge yields if you scrog in 5 gal coco/perlite, you will not be disappointed.

I love this plant as a provider and a personal user. Seeds will provide some variety. The biggest yielding can get rot. My keeper has top notch HOG flavor and then some with giant just loose enough buds to not rot. My patients love this plant. It’s a very happy painkiller. I do not understand the 50/50 indica/sativa. The breeder calls it a nearly pure indica. The HOG is indica. Critical Mass I always thought was 80/20 indica/sativa. Just saying.

The smoke is great. Very relaxing high. Helps put me to sleep. Not the easiest strain to grow. Yield was half of what the other two strains got. Great smoke and Iv got a few more beans and will give these another try.

Produced by crossing Tennessee Hog with Critical Mass, Critical Hog is an excellent strain that is quite convenient to grow. It has a good growth resulting in a greenish brown coloured strain. The plant has a height ranging from 120cm to 160cm and has a yield of around 350p.s.m to 550p.s.m. It ha…
