City Lights aka Critical Kush delivers well cushioned effects with a touch of euphoric creative energy, and some interesting feels. In for the night type of effects, I'll be using these buds for evening toke relaxing.
City Lights (Critical Kush) Indica
The City Lights aka Critical Kush Indica strain was born from the breeding of Critical Mass and OG Kush. Critical Mass is from the breeding of an Afghani Indica and Skunk#1 - a rework of the original Big Bud strain. These City Lights aka Critical Kush buds were grown by Edison, purchased from the Ontario Cannabis Store web site - lower than usual 15% THC, high in Linalool 1.35%, Limonene 2.24%, and alpha-Pinene 0.90% (Source).
City Lights (Critical Kush) Looks
Vibrant light and dark green tones with a decent enough covering of trichomes to give them a slightly fuzzy look. Matted with plenty of long and spindly bright orange pistols. Well trimmed buds with enough air spaces to fluff them up a little, i'll give them a 3 out of 5 on the fluff scale.
City Lights (Critical Kush) Scent
These buds have a sweet Lemon, Pine, Mango, and slightly musky scent.
It should go without saying that, because of its heavily sedative effects, Critical Kush is better suited to evening than to daytime use. Medical cannabis patients can also find various uses in this strain’s therapeutic properties. It can work against deep-seated aches and pains, whether temporary or chronic. The medicine’s anti-inflammatory may also help with more minor irritations like headaches or nausea. This strain’s mood-elevating effects may provide some welcome (albeit temporary) relief from stress, depression, and even anxiety. Finally, in high enough doses, Critical Kush may lull even insomniacs into a deep, fulfilling sleep. Because paranoid, cerebral thinking isn’t common with this strain, it’s a good choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.

CITY LIGHTS (Critical Kush) Flavor
First Toke... Creamy, sweet, mango, citrus lemon, pine, spicy terpene filled taste. Mouth is tingling, cheeks are puckered - spicy diesel aftertaste. Second Toke... Sweet pine flavors, spicy tail - ginger ale reminiscent aftertaste, slightly creamy flavor. Cheeks, brow, upper forehead and the top of the head lightly numbing. Third Toke... A sweet red wine aftertaste on that toke - complex favors.
CITY LIGHTS (Critical Kush) Effects
5 Minutes after First Toke... Heart and breath rate increasing slightly, mind is becoming energetic, the front part of the brain is slightly cushioned. Standing up for a minute, Fourth Toke.
35 Minutes after First Toke...
Energy in the solar plexus and chest, light bubbly giddy feelings - friendly. Mind is cushioned and relaxed, slightly and blissfully wandering. Temples lightly numbed, cheeks, lips, forehead, and top of the head too. Scalp is lightly tingling. Eyelids relaxed, lightly puffy.
45 Minutes after First Toke...
Mind his happy and blissfully light. Heart rate and breathing rate has relaxed. Body is relaxed too. 30 Mins Later... Mind wandering and comfortably numb, drinking some water.
2 Hours and 40 Mins Later...
Cheerful effects, relaxed - front part of the brain still numb. Eyelids still heavy, I'll have no trouble getting to sleep tonight. These City Lights (Critical Kush) buds I'll be saving for cushioned evening toking.
