Heritage & Genetics: Of Spanish origin, Critical Jack is a sativa-dominant crossbreed; the result of coupling Dinafem’s skunky and mellow Critical Plus together with Sensi Seed’s pungent and blissful Jack Herer. Critical Jack’s pleasant and relaxing – yet at the same time energizing – cerebral high is all thanks to its high THC content (18-21%) and rich genetic heritage. This strain inherits its uplifting and soothing effects from Northern Lights #5, Skunk and Big Bud while getting its invigorating effects from Acapulco Gold, Colombian Gold, and Haze.
Flavor & Aroma: A strong citrus aroma blended with scents of pine excite the olfactory nerve. As Critical Jack is ground down, floral undertones escape to delight the senses. A true delight to the palate, this strain exudes a cool, velvet-smooth draw; lemony-rich in taste on the inhale and interlaced with dashes of pepper and spice on the exhale.
Effect: Critical Jack’s sativa-like effects are perfect for fueling creativity; improving concentration, raising energy and sparking motivation. Plus, it makes social situations more enjoyable – even if you ordinarily find them quite uncomfortable. Uplifting and calming, Critical Jack is a clear-headed, non-drowsy kind of high that puts people at ease while making them more productive. Perfect for corporate cannaisseurs, bohemian artists, students and stay-at-home parents alike.
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: Best suited for indoor use (although, plants can be grown outside as long as they’re kept in a warm greenhouse), Critical Jack is forgiving, resilient and easy-to-cultivate, even for beginners. Growing to medium size and delivering above-average yields, this strain promises fast uniform growth; large stems with higher internodal distances and a good bud-to-leaf ratio. Particularly if the plants are farmed in hydroponics with a ScrOG setup. The slightly wispy Critical Jack flowers will be ready in as little as 8 weeks, producing (if grown well), compact, bright green buds streaked with dark green patches and covered in chocolate brown pistils.
