Crystal Coma is the kind of strain you want to try when you have an evening free from any responsibilities. With THC testing up to a whopping 30% and taking 3rd place in the 2014 High Times Cannabis cup for "Best Sativa," Crystal Coma is not for the novice user.
This strain appears to be covered in a white-fuzzy moss as every last leaf is completely engulfed in an armor of trichomes. The thick, protective layer of trichome fuzz even makes breaking apart the buds a task that requires considerable effort. Up until that point, the air is filled with a pungent cheese and skunk odor. As the nugget crumbled, the diesel fuel fumes release into the air. Users report that as the first hit was released, the old cheese and skunk taste turned into a spicy tingle on the end of the tongue while the brain ascended three octaves higher. This is the type of strain to exercise caution with and be mindful of moderation. This strain is known to make the body become slightly numb and tingly as well as warm and comfortable. Surprisingly, the consumers' altered minds were still able to remain calm and peaceful. Thoughts seemed to float around from one lucid daydream to another.
The potency of Crystal Coma makes tasks that require meticulous mental acuity such as mathematics almost impossible, but one might very well be able to dream up a million-dollar idea. The proper setting for consumption is very important, as this strain has the potential to trigger paranoia in certain situations and/or individuals due to its raw power. It's is a bit of a creeper strain too, sending the user on the ascent well after smoking is stopped. The gestalt body and mind effects peak a good 15 minutes after cessation. This powerful effect can last a very long time, making this strain very cost effective. Medical users with serious conditions like cancer are reaching for Crystal Coma due to its pain killing, appetite stimulating, and mood-regulating properties. Those users who are prone to panic attacks might want to pass on Crystal Coma, as it has the potential to overpower some individuals.
Cultivating Crystal Coma is best done indoors where daytime temperature can be kept between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit, while keeping humidity above average. Flowering time is 8-9 weeks and requires frequent pruning as this plant has the potential to grow tall.
