Its buds are densely packed, all of which are indicative of its indica roots. The leaves of the Critical OG come with shades of bright shade green sandwiched with orange pistils. The strain also comes with shiny trichomes, known to cover both the inner and outer surfaces of these large buds. This makes it very hard to break or crush without the aid of a grinder.
