Green Crack has been one of the most controversial strains not because of its effects or its origin but because of its name. Often, people misunderstood it as a type of cocaine. It is said, though, that it was the famous rapper Snoop Dogg who renamed it to Green Crack from its original name “Green Cush.” Apparently, it is due to the cerebral effects it induces and how users tend to not let it go after trying it.
Green Crack is the posh of strains. Bred during the early 1990’s in Athens, Ohio, it then made its way to Georgia and California. This “cush” is a cross of the legendary Skunk #1 and Sweet Leaf.
