Forget horror movies and haunted houses. If there’s anything that will leave your body numb, it is definitely the potent Kripple Shock strain. Thanks to Dr. Krippling and its amazing cross of Critical Mass with Shark Shock and Cream Caramel, we have a strain that will leave you completely couch-locked.
The Kripple Shock strain contains up to 23% THC levels, and some cultivars even produce 4% CBD. With buds that look like snowballs, with great density and a rich layer of trichomes, this heavy indica strain will give your body the ultimate relaxation.
With prominent pinene, caryophyllene, bisabolol, and myrcene terpenes, the Kripple Shock strain has interesting aromas. It has an earthy flavor that is soon followed by chocolate and caramel undertones upon exhale. Moreover, some users say it has a similar aroma to White Widow, with strong ammonia-like fragrances coming off its buds. Such flavors make Kripple Shock a favorite bud among experienced consumers.
As a heavy indica-dominant hybrid, the Kripple Shock strain will take your body to a relaxing state without compromising your movement. In small doses, this bud is perfect to carry social activities, since it will make you feel happy and conversational. On the other hand, stronger doses of Kripple Shock generate a heavy head high, taking your mind to an introspective state. First-timers should avoid this crippling bud, since it can leave them couch-locked in just a few minutes.
Moreover, the strong effects of Kripple Shock are perfect for users suffering from chronic pain, muscle spasms, and stress.
On the other hand, the terpenes in the Kripple Shock strain also carry their own set of effects. Caryophyllene interacts with the endocannabinoid system, enhancing the overall efficiency of all the compounds found in the Honeybells strain. Additionally, it has analgesic effects and regulates mood. Then, bisabolol has properties that make it a great terpene; this compound has anti-irritant, antimicrobial and analgesic effects. Myrcene adds its strong sedative and anti-inflammatory effects. Finally, pinene, the most prominent terpene of this strain, is a great choice to treat anxiety and pain, and it has shown potential benefits to combat short-term memory impairment, often associated with THC.
Kripple Shock Strain Genetics
Kripple Shock is a three-way mix of widely-known strains. First, we have the high-yielding Critical Mass; then, the medical-grade Shark Shock, and the delicious Cream Caramel. Dr. Krippling refined this seed to precise perfection, keeping the absolute best features of each parent and leaving the rest behind. For this reason, breeders are all head over heels for Kripple Shock and its amazing phenotype.
Critical Mass is the result of the cross of Afghani with Skunk #1. With bark, bubble gum, and hash aromas coming from its massive buds, this strain became popular because of its high yields. Although it produces an uplifting high, the Critical Mass strain has potent sedative effects, reason why many users prefer it to treat insomnia, fatigue, and nausea.
On the other hand, we have the powerful Shark Shock. With a THC count of up to 20% and many High Times Cannabis Cup awards, this bud is considered by many to be the most successful set of genetics from the 1990s. Being another heavy indica strain, it is perfect to treat depression and anxiety, allowing the body to relax and unwind.
Finally, Cream Caramel is a 90/10 indica-dominant hybrid. This bud was bred by Sweet Seeds in Spain, producing up to 24% THC levels and long lasting, up to 4-6 hours high. Just like its name suggests, Cream Caramel has a strong sweet aroma with some skunky and spicy notes. This strain produces a strong body high, uplifting your mood and relieving stress and anxiety.
The Kripple Shock strain is a fast-growing plant. While it is an easy crop to maintain, it will need a great amount of nutrients to thrive. After just 2 weeks of vegetative time, Kripple Shock will be ready to move onto its flowering phase. Thanks to such conditions, it is a favorite strain to grow among both new and experienced growers.

While Kripple Shock is certainly an interesting strain, sometimes we like to get away from the high. In such cases, Botany Farms has a great selection of CBD flower for you. Bubba Kush, a strong indica hybrid that took the market by storm back in 1998, has been modified to yield high CBD content that can reach 21.3% levels. With an enticing chocolate flavor and relaxing effects, getting yourself a Bubba Kush smoke before going to sleep is the best move you can make.
