The strain was reportedly named Cush by its original breeder, Cecil C., then renamed Green Crack by Snoop Dogg to refer to what the rapper and cannabis activist perceived as potent, sativa-like effects.
The strain won 3rd place for Best Sativa at the Denver High Times Cannabis Cup in 2015.
Green Crack is a potent sativa strain known for its energizing effects. But don’t let the name fool you: this is pure cannabis.
Few strains compare to Green Crack’s sharp energy and focus as it induces an invigorating mental buzz that keeps you going throughout the day.
If you’ve visited a dispensary in the past few years, you likely saw a jar of weed labeled “Green Crack.”
Rest assured, this is pure cannabis and doesn’t contain freebase cocaine, but the strain’s frenetic heady effects did contribute to its name.
Also to say the least, some pot shops gave it more socially acceptable names.
But let’s look into the strain’s storied legacy.
Like most weed strains, no one entirely knows where Green Crack got its start, where it originated.
He supposedly first bred the strain sometime in the early 1990s, and he only made Green Crack available through cloning.
Green Crack may not have always been called Green Crack, either. Some sources claim it was originally dubbed “Cush,” then was later nicknamed “Green Crack” by Snoop Dogg himself.
Other sources claim that the “Cush” moniker came after Green Crack began making the rounds through prominent weed circles, but sellers gave it the cushier name to avoid Green Crack’s association with coke.
