Crystal Coma Strain
Although its name conjures exotic images of Snow White in a twilight trance or Vladimir Lenin in his glass coffin, Crystal Coma strain is a sativa-leaning hybrid from California. Although its exact genetics are undocumented, this strain may be the product of two very pungent staples, Cheese and Skunk #1. While it leans more sativa, it expresses strong effects on both ends of the spectrum. Crystal Coma’s THC level has been measured at levels of 15% to as high as 30%.
Crystal Coma’s multicolored flowers are visually striking. The large and solid buds cling together in solid, rounded formations that are shaped somewhat like bullets. They have a typically indica internal structure, with a dense and solid core and small leaves that curl tightly inward. These leaves are a mossy green and are twisted through with curly orange and brown pistils. Crystal Coma strain also has (and might in part be named for) a high concentration of cloudy, crystalline trichomes that cover the buds’ inner and outer nooks and crannies and make them hard to break up by hand.
Crystal Coma’s high hits fast, sometimes Stirling consumers with buzzy, head-focused effects before they’ve even had a chance to exhale it smoke. At first, a feeling of constriction in and around the temples can be expected; tics like increased salivation and a flushing in the cheeks are also possible. Eventually, these effects subside and are replaced by a mental rush, with thoughts flowing more frequently and in a more associative, category-based way. This mindset can lend itself to work on complicated analytical tasks as well as to open-ended creative pursuits like brainstorming. Smokers who aren’t feeling quite as productive, however, can simply enjoy Crystal Coma’s sudden wave of euphoria for all it’s worth.
