Crystal Coma by Elephantos
A sativa-dominant hybrid, Crystal Coma by Elephantos is as visually striking as its name suggests, evoking thoughts of diamond-like trichomes that will easily put you in a comatose-like state of bliss. Despite being sativa-dominant, however, it offers users both strong sativa and indica effects. A product of crossbreeding between the strains, Cheese and Skunk #1, Crystal Coma is a rare treasure with a THC content level that can trend at an amazing high of 26%, a feat which definitely would have been a factor in the strain winning third place prize for Best Sativa at the LA Cannabis Cup in 2014. Best taken before bed, users will experience a serious case of couch lock as well as waves of euphoria with Crystal Coma. You’ll be dreaming of diamonds and forever with this one!
With such a high THC content and a name indicative of a state of unconsciousness, you can sure bet that Crystal Coma is a powerful strain. It delivers a cerebral head high rather quickly, stimulating the mind and putting users into a focused, analytical and creative mindset. This would help with concentration and attention deficit disorders, though recreational users will also find enjoyment in the rush of euphoric waves Crystal Coma offers. This sense of mental pleasure paired with its ability to focus thoughts makes it great for watching movies or working on creative projects. The energizing sativa effects are then gradually followed by strong indica effects which offer a sedative-like physical relaxation. For this reason, it is recommended for nighttime usage as users may become couch-locked as they slowly transition into a deep comatose-like state. The potent indica effects of Crystal Coma makes it popular amongst medical users of cannabis as the physically calming effects aid in pain management, offers relief, and helps combat insomnia.
Crystal Coma is a sativa-leaning hybrid strain, with a staggering ratio of 70% sativa to 30% indica. Its THC content level averages at a high 26%, above the typical norm, but has been reported to reach an even higher 30%. This high content measurement is perhaps surprising considering its parental lineage. Cheese averages only between 15%-20%, and Skunk #1 averages at 15%-19%, though despite these lower numbers, these parent strains remain famous and quite popular in their own right as Cheese contains 1% CBD and is useful for medical purposes, and Skunk #1 remains a staple in the cannabis-friendly Amsterdam region where it was originally cultivated.
Appearance & Aroma
In terms of its aroma and flavours, Crystal Coma takes on a bit of cheesy and diesel undertones from its parent Cheese strain, but it does have a more intense and predominant scent and flavouring of sweet citrus balanced by fresh, crisp pine. Its appearance, on the other hand, is just as captivating as its delicious and refreshing taste. Crystal Coma’s buds are large and dense with a solid core. It is typically a light, pastel, mossy lime-green with patterns of orange and brown pistils, and further covered in a highly concentrated, thick coating of frosty crystalline trichomes–a true crystal treasure in the world of cannabis, indeed.
