Indica Dominant Hybrid – 75% Indica / 25% Sativa
THC: 14% – 18%
3X Crazy, also more commonly known as “Optimus Prime,” is an indica dominant hybrid (75% indica/25% sativa) strain created through a three-way cross of the classic OG Kush X Bubba Kush X Granddaddy Purple strains. This celebrity child is infamous for its heavy hitting indica effects that flawlessly bring together those of its parents. The high hits you first in the head with a fast-hitting euphoric effect that leaves you mildly uplifted and in a really good mood. As your happiness builds, your mind will become slightly hazy, leaving you spacey and distant at times. A creeping body buzz comes next, spreading from your spine and lower back throughout the rest of your body in slow warming waves. This body buzz will leave you completely relaxed and ravenously hungry, reaching for anything within reach to snack on. A slightly sedative effect can be felt upon the comedown that often puts users into an introspective and sleepy state. These effects coupled with its moderately high 14-18% average THC level make 3X Crazy the perfect bud for treating conditions such as insomnia, chronic stress or anxiety, muscle spasms, chronic pain, and lack of appetite. This bud has a classic aroma and flavor of sweet berry earth with a spicy skunky aftertaste with hints of musky grape. 3X Crazy buds have small and lumpy popcorn-shaped forest green nugs with sparse orange hairs and a frosty thick coating of oversized milky white crystal trichomes.
If the name of this indica doesn’t catch your attention, its large, colorful flowers will. The buds are solid and nearly spherical in shape. They hold the dense bud structure usually associated with indicas. The coiled leaves are a mossy shade of green and are threaded through with vibrant orange pistils. More often than not, phenotypes of 3x Crazy also exhibit patches of muted purple and blue in equal proportion to green. These surprising colors are the result of pigments called anthocyanins — passed on from parent strain Granddaddy Purple — that bring out different hues when agitated by colder than average weather during the growing process. Finally, the mottled flowers are covered in unusually large, translucent white trichomes that give the buds a sticky texture and an icy gloss.
When properly cured, 3x Crazy smells fruity and sweet, with a mixed grape and berry character. On closer inspection, there is also a smoky, earthy scent, with notes of sap and pine lurking underneath this fruity bouquet. Breaking open the buds yields some spice and incense, a testament to the OG Kush in this variety’s background. When combusted, 3x Crazy burns with a smooth and easily ingested smoke that tastes clean and fruity on the exhale. Notably, any discernible grape flavors are coincidental to this strain’s purple leaves; while its color is determined by pigmentation, its aroma is dictated by separate botanical compounds called terpenes. 3x Crazy can be a particularly pungent smoke, so tokers who are preoccupied with discretion should take the needed precautions.
3x Crazy is known to offer a creeper of a high, and may require several minutes before beginning to reveal its effects. Smokers will eventually detect a bracing pressure at the front of the head and around the temples. Around the same time, thoughts may begin to flow more freely and easily. The ensuing mental lucidity is a good primer for work that requires analysis, creativity, and concentration. Within an hour or so, this head high settles into a more sedate feeling of physical relaxation. Waves of soothing contentment spread down from the neck through the spine and extremities. Many users report feeling grounded (rather than disoriented) by these relaxing effects. The body may tip over into an intractable sense of couch-lock for the duration of the high. Despite this sedation, though, 3x Crazy can be a remarkably social high, inspiring conversation and provoking fits of giggles. This strain is best enjoyed during the late afternoon or early evening, when its backslide into sleepy meditation can be fully appreciated.
3x Crazy may have several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Although short-lived, its cerebral effects can help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain some concentration. Meanwhile, its numbing indica effects can relieve aches and pains, whether they’re temporary or chronic and nerve-related. The bud’s mood-elevating properties can also take the edge off of mild to moderate cases of stress and depression. Finally, in large enough doses, 3x Crazy can lull insomniacs into a deep, fulfilling sleep. Because this strain’s mental effects do not commonly lead to recursive, paranoid thinking, it can be a good option for patients who are prone to panic.
Unfortunately, no commercial breeders have made seeds of 3x Crazy for sale online; prospective growers must obtain clippings from mature plants in order to cultivate genetically identical “clones.” Plants can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor growing calls for a semi-humid, almost Mediterranean climate. The plants grow short and bushy, with strong lateral branches, and are easily accommodated indoors. Those looking to bring out the bud’s signature blue and purple hues should also briefly expose their crops to nighttime temperatures between 10 and 15 degrees below average. 3x Crazy flowers within 7 to 9 weeks when grown indoors.
3x Crazy is an ideal hybrid for sativa fans who’d like a dash of cerebral thinking along with their body melt. You don’t have to be crazy yourself to enjoy this strain — but it certainly won’t hurt.
