Critical + is an all-in-one feminised cannabis seed regarded as one of the greatest cannabis ladies of all time: she grows very easily, she produces spectacular yields, her taste and aroma are simply unbeatable, and her potent effect provokes an impressive 'high' that everyone wants to try.

At Dinafem Seeds we felt the urge to create something really special. How did we do it? By crossing a Big Bud with a selection of Skunks, we obtained a remarkably charismatic marijuana strain with an amazing overall quality. One of the most highly regarded strains of our collection and the favourite of many growers!

Since her release in 2005, she has become more and more successful, with many awards honouring her value. 

  • 1st prize in the "Outdoor" category at the 2016 Copa de Cultivadores Cannábicos (Buenos Aires)
  • 2nd prize at the 2011 THC Cup (Valencia).
  • 2nd prize at the 2011 Summer Cup (The Canary Islands)
  • 2nd prize at the 2010 Cup Marina Baixa.
  • 2nd prize at the Indoor Sativa Cup Bitox, in 2009.
  • 2nd prize at the Outdoor Sativa Cup Bitox, in 2009.


Critical + turns into very Sativa-looking marijuana plants: tall, sometimes reaching heights of 2.5 m outdoors, with large internodal spacing and jagged, thin and elongated leaves. However, she is very quick, a trait more typical of Indica genetics. Her buds are large, heavy, compact and full of resin.


Critical + is an international reference if what we’re looking for is an amazingly quick and bountiful crop. In fact, this heavy-producer can provide up to 625 g/m2 indoors and some 1300 g/plant outdoors. A heavy yield is always guaranteed!

Aromas and flavours

Critical + gives off a very strong and fresh scent of lemon which is unique but incredibly well-balanced. As a matter of fact, this is one of her distinguishing features, the one that all those who already know her instantly identify. An unmistakable badge of identity!


Critical + is a slightly Indica-dominant THC-rich strain, meaning she delivers a physically relaxing and narcotic effect that is suitable for people suffering from stress. A balanced high that starts with a very pleasant cerebrally stimulating sensation and turns more relaxing as time passes by.


Critical + is not only stable and vigorous, but she is ready for harvest in a remarkably short time. In fact, she grows so fast and so strong that, if you're intending to grow indoors, it's paramount you keep the area clean and tidy so that every plant has enough space to grow comfortably and show their full potential. Some staking is also likely to be necessary because, at some point, their branches won’t be able to hold the weight of the buds.

Outdoors, she thrives in temperate Mediterranean climates or under the protection of the greenhouse. Her only weak point is her limited resistance to moisture but, thanks to her fast growth, she's rarely affected by it. Performing well with SCROG and SOG, any trimming technique can be used on her (topping, fimming, super cropping...). Her aroma is so intense that you’d better opt for guerrilla growing outdoors and not for your city balcony or terrace. Indoors, using anti-odour filters is essential to prevent the neighbours from taking notice of our crop.

    5 out of 5
    Critical plus is just a gift from god. I got a freebie seed and grew her outdoors in Nova Scotia. She is a massive plant 9 and half foot tall. Big heavy dense buds and the smell of heaven!! She will not disappoint I promise!! Easy to grow and care for. Love this strain Dinafem
  4. Solid producer

    4 out of 5
    Easy to grow plant, didn't require any special attention so for that I give it high marks. Beautiful fruity smell mixed with skunk tones gives this one a real pleasant aroma. I wasn't particularly thrilled with the finished product. The effect of this cross feels a little too even keeled without much complexity. It gave me more a confused almost stupefying kind of mental state which I didn't find particularly enjoyable. MAJOR munchies so potentially something with appetite issues may benefit from. Maybe you can enjoy it more if you're laying on your back floating in the water somewhere. I think I may not be a huge fan of skunk genetics.
  5. Tall and fast!

    5 out of 5
    Taller than my Amherst Sour Diesel and started later. Great citrus earthy smell in flower, to a spice and earth aroma when cured. One plant only. Was my free seed.

    5 out of 5
    Ordered a few seeds and this Critical+ was a freebie. Decided to practice growing this seed first to learn from before trying other varieties. Learned things along the way from my first grow. Had a magnesium deficiency but corrected it early on. Now I’m just starting my fifth week into flower and am very satisfied with how critical+ is developing. Decided to call this girl Laci. Last few letters of the strain spelled backwards. Giddy
  7. Impossible to kill, amazing aromas

    5 out of 5
    This was my first grow, used them in SOG method with 10 plants and yielded 80 grams of dried bud. Fits perfectly for new growers like me because it's hard to kill this plant and you are gaining a lot of experience by growing this strain. After smoking you feel happy and uplifted, little bit later Indica comes to do his job. Just wonderful strain.
  8. Awesome!!

  9. Incredible Growth and Aromas

    5 out of 5
    Critical + has surpassed all my expectations. Easy to grow and massive results. Quick flowering times are not exaggerated and gives out an outstanding Lemon aroma. Will definitely grow again!
  10. Awesome weed!!!

    5 out of 5
    Critical + is a great choice for outdoor in more northern areas. She is a heavy yeilder with buds so big we needed to tie the branches to keep them off the ground. The high is both long lasting and powerful!

    Napisze odnośnie nasion od was. Zawsze kupowałem nasiona innych firm tańszych. Ostatnio kupiłem critical + 1sztuke. Jest ono bez porównanie lepsze niż cała reszta z innych firm. Po namoczeniu prze 24 godziny pierwsze liście wyszły po 36h od wsadzenia w ziemie. Polecę was każdej osobie.

  18. Fast Huge Buds

    5 out of 5
    Unbelievable how fast and big the buds get. Snow covered white resin on every leaf. Staking is a must, because these buds are thick and heavy. Aroma of lemons and orange hairs, amazing scents. Have not got a final weight yet, shes drying out and curing. Samples smoked nice, strong high. Will be growing more soon. Super easy grow.

    This lady was so far the prettiest girl in my collection. I got it as a bonus seed in an order and came out one of the most vigorous plant i have ever had the pleasure to work with. Massive colas, and beautiful white pussy hairs everywhere in my tent. The smoke was outstanding and requested heavily. Recommended!

    5 out of 5
    Absolutely the best strain i have grown.. the high is wonderful for ADD people ( like me). but my finishing time is excessive for some reason.. trichs are cloudy.. no amber.. but those buds just keep exploding. lol.. will cut at the first amber trichs i see.. shooting for max yeild. there is a permanent spot in my garden for these little babies!!
  32. Excellent high, easy to grow, Fast growth

    5 out of 5
    I have grown Critical + for years as a cash crop and as my favorite smoke and never seem to tire of it. I yield over 2lbs per 1000 watt HPS, 4 to 4 1/2 ounces per plant in 10-11 weeks in a 5-5 1/2' area. Pro-Mix moistened with nutrients, h2o2, PH balance in water. I use 8 x 4 gallon pots under 1000 watt HPS with 48" flat shield with the plants circled around the bulb. Grow as close to the light as possible with a good fan blowing over plants/bulb. Only moisten top of soil as it dries out UNTIL plant has developed roots and shows signs of needing water. DO NOT OVER WATER! Top plant at 8-10" resulting in 8 - 12 main branches. Flower plants a few days after, MAX a week after topping. You will only need 1 -2 full (3-4 liters) watering before switching to 12 hours light period. Water and turn plants 1/3 - 1/2 turn every 3 days or so. Trim off all small growth on bottom of plants.

  35. A favourite definitely!

    5 out of 5
    I got this as a freebie, and man let me tell is great! the smell is of peach/mango fruity smell..and the high is for me was thought provoking but relaxed at the same...felt quite contented and enjoyed being the "professor" as I expounded on many a topics, to my companions lol!...all in all, it is an enjoyable experience...I believe I didn't grow this strain properly, but what I got was impressive enough...the delivery to me (in NZ) was very very fast in my opinion, it took only 13 days from the moment I paid, all online...thank you Dinafem for the shared experience
  36. wicked wicked good weed!!!

    I grew Critical+ last year for the first time. Really great smoke!! Tasty and smooth and the high is super nice. So I grew it again this year and the results were phenomenal. Outdoors 12 plants for just over 15 pounds. The Critical+ were the best producers by far and absolutely no mold!! Very nice job Dinafem!! I've got some Critical +2.0 Autos going indoors now. Can't wait to
