Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: An instant heavy-hitter, Chronic Thunder lives up to its name by crushing users with a sometimes overwhelming, thundering, couch-lock effect that can make the simplest task, such as getting up of the sofa, next to impossible.
Chronic Thunder is easily recognizable by the large buds that are absolutely covered in orange pistils. This is definitely one of the hairiest strain out there. These buds give off a powerful stench of fuel, earth and pepper, with flavors of hash, earth and undertones of fuel/funk. Chronic Thunder has incredibly high levels of CBD as well as THC, giving it supreme medicinal and recreational properties.
Gardeners are advised to stay away from both humidity and hydroponics, when cultivating Chronic Thunder, as it won't do well in these conditions. However, it should do very well in a cool, dry climate grown in soil. Outdoor gardeners will likely see a harvest by the final week of September or first week of October, receiving an average yield. The colas will most likely require support during flowering, to prevent from snapping. For an indica, these ladies can get pretty tall, so indoor growers are advised to limit the time in vegetation to a maximum of three weeks, when height may be a concern.
