The smell of Jack Straw ranges from lemon haze to straight sweet haze, depending on the respective phenotype.
TGA Subcool - Jack Straw: Ridiculously high THC level of 24%!
Jack Straw is an incredibly potent marijuana strain - an independent lab tested it for its THC content and the result came very close to a ridiculously high value of 24%! To create this THC monster, the team at TGA Subcool crossed Touch Of Grey and Jack The Ripper, resulting in a 80% Sativa/20% Indica hybrid that puts forth two main phenotypes. One of them tends to grow tall and exhibits a hefty stretch during the flowering period just like Jack The Ripper - its counterpart is rather short and stocky and reminds of its parent Touch Of Grey.
Jack Straw should be trimmed accurately to make use of its vigorous growth and of course to maximize the yield. Due to the strong Sativa influence impatient growers might be put off by the relatively long flowering period, although 9-10 weeks are not too bad for a Sativa. In full maturity the buds are studded with myriads of shiny resin glands as if they were covered in frosty rime.
The aroma of Jack Straw varies from lemon haze to straight sweet haze, depending on the phenotype. When it comes to the induced high, this strain seems to differentiate between the pre-existing mood and condition of the user - if you are alert and active, a small dose with give you an extra push of energy, whereas a tired consumer will feel even more tired after having a toke. Noobs should approach this weed with cautious respect, for if you are not used to such a THC hammer, you may feel uncomfortable or even jittery. Medical users on the other hand may find this smoke helpful for treating symptoms of anxiety, ADHD, depression, nausea and difficulties related to chemo and radiation therapies and for mild pain relief.
