About Captain Crunch
Captain Crunch is an Indica-leaning strain without a ton of THC to its name, though it can still deliver a high that hits hard and comes on fast, setting you up for a couch-locking, body-centered high that will make you feel hungry with its piney-sweet, fruity, and earthy taste. As you might expect from the name, Captain Crunch is an accessible strain in terms of flavor and delivers powerful sensations of sweetness that can positively affect your mood, especially if you suffer from chronic pain, stress, or eating disorders.

This strain takes around 8-10 weeks to finish flowering and is known for being generous with its yields whether grown inside or outside (it averages around 14oz of weed per sq. meter). Its buds grow as extra-large, dark green clumps, frosted with trichomes. The main terpene to look forward to on this strain is Myrcene, which carries a mild, sweet flavor that turns into an aroma of spicy earth. This describes the Captain Crunch experience pretty accurately. We say “experience” because that’s about all we have to go on since the Washington-based breeder, Exotic Genetix, has been tightlipped about the strain’s genetic origins. Online users tend to enjoy this strain despite its secrecy.
On the inhale, the strain is sweet and berry-flavored, but it doesn’t take long for an earthy, spicy, almost musky aroma to take over. The undertone of pine flavor is particularly strong, giving the strain an outdoorsy identity that’s hard to miss. As you take the strain in, you’ll be instantly hit with a buzzing wave of relaxing feeling, dulling negative thoughts in your brain and making you grumpy with hunger. Users report that the strain can be used to work through periods of low appetite brought on by eating disorders or stress. Prepare for your smoke by making sure you’re stocked up on your favorite snacks!
The strain’s effects weigh heavily on your body, eventually knocking out most users. We don’t recommend this strain for the early morning or for any day where you plan on doing something important later. Instead, save Captain Crunch for the early evening when you can kick back with snacks and not worry about accidentally passing out. Insomnia and anxiety are listed as two potential reasons to use Captain Crunch, though every user’s experience will vary based on their dosage and tolerance.
Just because this strain has the potential to be a literal knockout doesn’t mean that it makes you feel calm. It packs a huge punch of energy that can make you feel forcefully relaxed and happy at the same time you enjoy the sweet pine of your Captain Crunch (and other assorted snacks). Make sure to use it at the right time to yield the Cap’n’s exciting, mind-buzzing effects.
