What is Kief?
Kief refers to the resin glands which contain the terpenes and cannabinoids that make cannabis so unique. While marijuana sans kief still contains cannabinoids, the resin glands that develop on flower buds pack the biggest punch.
While kief specifically refers to the bulbous, crystal formation on the tip of a gland, the substance itself is just one part of what is called a trichome, or a “hair.” Traditionally, kief has been pressed into cakes of hashish for convenience in storage but can be vaporized or smoked in either form.
Fans of God’s Green Crack also give the strain high marks when it comes to flavor. A first whiff of the cured flowers will likely detect a woodsy and slightly herbal aroma, with hints of sage or eucalyptus. Closer inspection may pick up on sharp citrus notes as well. Breaking open or grinding up these flowers gives off a rich, hashy scent that may be passed on from parent strain God Bud. When God’s Green Crack is burnt in a pipe or a joint, it gives off a thick and incense-like smoke that is nevertheless very easy to inhale. On the exhale, this smoke tastes woodsy and slightly floral. Notably, despite its purple hues, this strain does not have any discernible grape flavors; this is because the plant’s color and its aroma are determined by separate chemical compounds, called pigments and terpenes, respectively.
Like a bolt out of the blue, God’s Green Crack strikes users soon after they’ve toked on its heavy, aromatic smoke. At first, the strain may exert twitchy effects in the head like an increase in salivation or a throbbing in the temples. These tics subside soon after they’ve arrived, though, and are followed up by a surge in the intensity of the smoker’s thought processes. Certain concepts may seem more fascinating than they otherwise would, while the user’s train of thought it likely to amble around following from one free association to the next. For properly focused and motivated users, these buzzy properties can encourage productivity on work, whether your to-do list includes demanding, analytical tasks or mundane chores. God’s Green Crack can also stoke the fires of creativity, making it useful to those working on open ended personal projects.
Less than an hour after this high has kicked in, though, smokers should plan to be as relaxed as physically possible. God’s Green Crack weighs down consumers’ limbs and eyelids in equal measure, rendering any physical exertion very difficult. At this stage, the bud is well-suited to passive activities like snacking and binge-watching, as smokers give themselves over the flow of their immediate surroundings.
The versatile, multi-layered high that comes with God’s Green Crack can have a range of uses for medical cannabis patients as well. Those with attention deficit disorders may benefit from the strain’s early cerebral properties. Its glow of euphoria, meanwhile, can help to temporarily lift the fog of conditions like stress, depression, PTSD, and anxiety. On the physical end of the spectrum, this bud’s deeply relaxing vibes may soothe aches and pains, whether they’re temporary or chronic, as in the case of conditions like lupus or arthritis. Its tendency to bring about the munchies can even work as an appetite stimulant for those with impaired hunger due to harsh medications or treatments. Because of its sheer intensity, both mental and physical, God’s Green Crack is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
