We always have a place for moderately potent Indica strains in our lives, and this strain fit that bill perfectly, signaling its Afghani roots in smell, flavor, and effect. Though not overtly potent except right at the beginning, this strain had good "torque" and kept up at a fairly high level, declining smoothly over the 2nd half of the duration and leaving behind a relaxed and capable mind. It didn't help with severe pain, but it did really make our bodies feel good, and we like this strain mostly as an evening relaxer for days when a little mental uplift and a few hours on the couch leading into sleep is the perfect recipe.

In the 1990s, breeders Scott Blakey (aka Shatnibaba,) Neville Schoenmakers and Howard Marks (aka Mr. Nice), left Green House Seed Company to form Mr. Nice and began reworking some of the Critical Mass is an indica/sativa variety from Mr. Nice and can be cultivated indoors (where the plants will need a flowering time of ?50 days), outdoors and in the greenhouse.
