Chronic is quite a well-balanced cannabis strain which is 50% Sativa and 50% Indica. It is very popular in the mainstream as there has been a music album of the same name by Dr. Dre.
The creator of this fantastic strain is Serious Seeds. They produced Chronic in 1994. Thus, this strain gained popularity in the rap game as the genre had just begun to connect with the mainstream.
Chronic is the result of a three-way cross. Its parent cannabis strains are Northern Lights, Skunk and AK-47. All of its parent strains are quite potent themselves. Apart from the immense popularity, this strain has also won the award for third place in the Hydro class of 1994 High Times Cannabis Cup.
This strain is quite popular among doctors as they prescribe to their patients for anxiety and stress disorders and muscle spasms. However, the potency of this strain is quite high and thus, it is not recommended for beginners. The flavors of this strain are described as Pine and Citrus. It has a bit of a tangy aftertaste.
