John Doe’s unique flavor profile is a breath of fresh air, but it takes some skill to cultivate this strain to its full potential. Those up for the challenge can reap big rewards.
Heritage & Genetics: While the name suggests the lineage of this strain is unknown, Devil’s Harvest is well aware of its genetic makeup. They took a G13 indica male from a fairly unknown breeder named Doggie Nuts and crossed it with their very own sativa dominant Strawberry Sour Diesel female.
Flavor & Aroma: John Doe sets itself apart from the hybrid crowd by having a unique and exciting flavor profile. Its bouquet consists of a creamy, minty aroma reminiscent of eucalyptus, finished by a recognizable sativa undertone of pine wood.
Effect: This strain has an unmistakable sativa effect. Its cerebral high brings an uplifting, happy, creative and focused buzz that is unusual for 60/40 sativa/indica hybrid.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite, reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Fair warning; this is not the easiest strain to cultivate. It takes a lot of looking after to reach its full potential and is only suited to grow outside in warm and sunny climates. In colder climates, John Doe is best kept indoors. After the tenth week, the full flavor of this strain will be matured enough, but for the best yield, growers might want to let it flower for an extra week. It also requires a lot more room than most other sativa dominant hybrids, its bottom leaves will need to be cleaned up regularly to ensure enough air flow.
