Strain Of The Day – Chrystal

Black Owned 29f45 chrystal
Indica 60 / Sativa 40
Origins: White Widow x Northern Lights
Flowering: 56-70 days
Harvest: early October

Chrystal is a child of celbrity parents, destined for her own renown. The Chrystal mother derives from the legendary White Widow strain. White Widow set the standard for “White” weed strains. Nirvana’s White Widow is a tall plant with delicate arms and moderately compact copiously resinous buds.

To breed Chrystal, Nirvana backcrossed White Widow with famed daddy Northern Lights. This Northern Lights leans to the sativa side with a powerful, energetic, and very social buzz.

As would be expected, this marriage produced a plant with a lot of good genetics. Chrystal is a fine indoor plant, whether the garden is a soil or a hydro system. Soil-based gardens bring out more complex flavors and aromas, while hydro setups delivers more commercial-style buds that are compact and easy to trim, but diminish this plant in the smell department.

This F1 hybrid grows quite aggressively, so growth should be controlled. Toward the end of flowering, all branches have to be staked and supported. Fortunately, the high bud-to-leaf ratio from her Northern Lights father makes Chrystal a pretty easy plant to manicure. When placed into flowering at 16 inches (40 cm), Chrystal can easily reach 3 feet (1 m) at maturity. Her growth structure makes sea of green an efficient choice, although Nirvana has seen greenhouse gardens where Chrystal was grown as a multi-branched plant. These greenhouse ladies reach 6 feet in height and yield 750 grams of quality grass per plant.

Chrystal’s sticky buds have noticeable kerosene overtones – a clean but pungent lawnmower whiff. The effects are quick hitting, producing an all-around high that can be felt in both body and mind. In other words, the stone reflects the balance, acceleration, and power of Chrystal’s parentage. Chrystal took first place in the Dutch High Life Cup in 2002.
