  Breeder's Description - 'Chrystal'
Chrystal is a White Widow re-back-crossed with Northern Lights. Chrystal’s buds are big and sticky with an almost kerosene like aroma and a quick hitting high. A F1 hybrid, Chrystal produces outstanding yields of top quality (and priced) grass. Much easier to manicure than White Widow. Chrystal is a first place winner of the Dutch Highlife Cup, 2002.

This strain did take me by surprise... The trichome production is unlike anything I've seen. It almost looks like they grow out of one another!

I accidentally over fed (but was able to flush) and they came back beautifully. Fed with Age Old Organics in veg and bloom.

Great and easy to grow, No problems what so ever.
Smells a little more than normal and has a little after taste when smoking.

But a great head high, pure head high no body at all.

Flowered slightly faster than some strains that I've grown, tends not to show maturity until the very last minute.

The Trichomes are wonderful, excellent for hash makers.

Excellent all-round.

Required more watering than past grows.
Easy to train and keep in shape very forgiving for an inexperienced grower, recommended for a first grow.
