Tips for Growing Green Crack Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and Botanicare are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.


Strain Overview: A member of the Skunk family, Green Crack is a popular sativa-dominant variety. Its distinctive lime green color and citrus smell make it an easily recognizable strain. A daytime favorite due to its invigorating effects, Green Crack is ideal for fighting fatigue and stress while inspiring creativity.

Grow Techniques: Green Crack will grow tall and fast before it begins to flower. Be on top of your trellising, as you want to be prepared for buds that develop quickly over a short flowering period. Green Crack does well outdoors in healthy soils with lots of space for roots to develop.

Flowering Time: 8 weeks

Yield: Moderate to high

Grow Difficulty: Easy

Climate: Prefers mild to warm climates between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: Green Crack performs exceptionally well outdoors where the plant can take off and fill space. It has an extremely strong smell that hangs around even during harsh outdoor weather. This sativa is also popular indoors as its flowering cycle is so rapid, it leads to more harvests annually.

Feeding: Start feeding with lots of phosphorus early on in the flowering stage to make sure the buds get enough food before harvest.
