Animal Crackers Weed Strain: Genetics
Animal Crackers is an 80/20 Indica dominant hybrid that is the result of crossing Animal Cookies and The White.
This strain is an excellent investment as a single toke will have you stoned for hours. Because it is indica-dominant, be sure to take it slow; if you smoke too much, it will knock you out.
Animal Cookies, one of its parent strains, is massively potent at 27 percent THC. This is one of the most potent strains you will ever encounter. It is a strong indica that will put you right to sleep. Don’t expect to get a lot done on this strain.
The White, the other parent strain, originally hails from Florida. The name is very fitting as the nugs are entirely covered in frosty, white trichomes. This strain is another indica dominant hybrid that will also put you right to sleep.
Animal Crackers Weed Strain: Yields
You can grow animal crackers indoors and outdoors. This strain is not recommended for beginners as it can be challenging to grow. The plants will need to be trimmed and kept in a well-ventilated area.
You can expect around 400 grams of flower outdoors, which is a good yield. Indoors, you can expect 1 to 2 ounces for every square foot.
Many factors can affect yields, including seed genetics. Outdoors will yield higher yields because the plants have more space to grow. You can increase your overall yield by using nutrients at specific growth cycles.
However, be careful when adding nutrients, and be sure to add them at the correct times so as not to burn the plants.
Animal Crackers’ flowering time is between 8 and 9 weeks. The flower is dark green with bright yellow hairs. The buds get an amber tint from the trichomes enveloping the nugs.
It is essential to do research into what strains grow best together. Strains with similar growing conditions thrive amongst one another and make your life easier as the grower.
The THC content in Animal Crackers ranges anywhere from 20 to 25 percent THC. This is considerably high and should not be taken for granted.
However this plant is grown, it will be potent. That’s for sure.
Be sure to keep some snacks around, as you will definitely get the munchies.
