About Critical Sensi Star
Critical Sensi Star is an indica-dominant hybrid that offers a bold fruity aroma and thoroughly relaxing effects. Created by prolific breeders Delicious Seeds, this strain is a cross between Paradise Seeds’ legendary Sensi Star and the indica Critical Mass. As potent as it is delicious, Critical Sensi Star offers THC levels of between 15% and 21%.
Flowers of Critical Sensi Star jump out right away thanks to their larger-than-average size and solid conical shape. These tapered buds maintain an indica-typical structure, with small, broad leaves that hold tightly together in a dense core. The leaves themselves are a faint sage green and are twisted through with deep brown and orange pistils. Finally, a high volume of sticky white trichomes covers all visible nooks and crannies of these buds, giving them a slightly dewy appearance.
When properly cured, Critical Sensi Star carries an unmistakably citrus aroma. A closer inspection of the buds may also pick up on a sour, almost fermented edge. When ground up or broken apart, these thick flowers release more of a hashy, incense-like odor that may be passed on from grandparent landrace indica Afghani. Burning Critical Sensi Star gives off a thick and deeply pungent smoke that’s nevertheless easy on the lungs. On the exhale, this smoke tastes both sour and fruity.
The high from Critical Sensi Star can be a true creeper and may not reveal itself until 10 to 15 minutes after ingestion. Eventually, consumers may detect a weighty feeling in the core and limbs that can make extended physical activity and coordination somewhat difficult. On the plus side, smokers may also find themselves more relaxed, free of muscular tension, and able to breathe more deeply and fully. For some, the strain can manifest in changes to sensory perception, leading to phenomena like amplified sounds and visuals; some smokers also report an ineffable feeling of time moving more slowly. These psychedelic vibes can be a great way to zone out with some dreamy music or a visually engaging movie. Critical Sensi Star has also been known to bring about a giddy, giggly state of mind that can be a fun way to pass the time with likeminded friends.
For the duration of this high, its body stone persists, eroding the average user’s motivation to get many things done. Instead, this relaxing bud is better suited to a mellow night in, whether you’re toking alone and binge-watching or sharing with friends over some board games. Because of its mostly sedative nature, Critical Sensi Star is recommended for consumption in the late afternoon or early evening -- or at least during daylight hours when there are no pressing responsibilities on your agenda.
Critical Sensi Star’s relaxed and slow-moving properties give it a few different uses for medical cannabis patients. The bud’s generally uplifted mood can help those with stress, depression, or anxiety to spend their time more consciously and intentionally. It may also dull physical pain, whether temporary and injury-related or due to chronic conditions like lupus or arthritis. Anti-inflammatory properties can take the sting out of everyday irritations like cramps or headaches. For consumers who are properly relaxed and comfortable, this strain can even work against insomnia, inducing deep and fulfilling sleep. Because it comes with little to no risk of obsessive, overly cerebral thought patterns, Critical Sensi Star is a good option for patients who are prone to paranoia and panic.
Fortunately for home growers, Delicious Seeds has made seeds of Critical Sensi Star available online. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor success depends on a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Plants stick to a short, squat indica silhouette, with plenty of lateral branches. Growers may need to occasionally “top” their crops by trimming away any broad fan leaves that could block light and air from reaching any low-growing nodes. Critical Sensi Star flowers within a brief 7 to 8 weeks when grown indoors. Yields come in at around 46 grams of product per square foot of plant.
An aromatic strain with deeply relaxing effects, Critical Sensi Star is a must-try for indica fans. It’s just the thing for a lazy smoke on a quiet night or a rainy day spent indoors.
