Super Jack is a potent sativa-leaning hybrid that amplifies the outstanding effects of its two parents strains. This energetic bud is the product of legendary sativa Jack Herer and highly resinous Super Silver Haze. Created by Amsterdam-based Southseeds, Super Jack delivers long-lasting energy and mental clarity for a variety of daytime activities and moods. This strain’s THC content has been measured at between 12% and 24%.
Super Jack can be identified by its large flowers which ahdere in spadelike forms, tapering from a broad base down into a pointed tip. Despite this strain’s sativa lineage, its buds have a characteristically indica structure, with leaves curled tightly inward rather than spiraling loosely out from their central stems. The leaves themselves are a dark shade of forest green and are offset by twisted orange pistils. A blanket of resinous trichomes leaves these flowers very sticky and difficult to break up without a grinder.
When properly cured, flowers of Super Jack smell earthy and dank, reminiscent of wet soil. Hanging underneath this aroma is a bright citrus scent, similar to fresh orange zest. Meanwhile, grinding up Super Jack’s buds releases some herbal notes of sage and eucalyptus. When burnt, the strain gives off a smooth and easily palatable smoke. This smoke tastes both fruity and hashy on the exhale.
Super Jack takes hold quickly, exerting a concerted pressure around the eyes and temples. It may also cause the face to flush, especially if the consumer stands up after toking. Almost immediately thereafter, Super Jack’s cerebral quality begins to shine through with all the inspiration and clearheaded focus that makes Jack Herer so popular. USers may find their ideas swirling around in free association or may begin to turn over particularly interesting concepts, searching for solutions to an entrenched question or problem. As such, Super Jack can be a great accompaniment to a busy workload, whether you’re focused on complex professional tasks or simply running through mundane chores. As the high wears on, a mild body high creeps in to provide a tingle of relaxation and pervasive relief in the core and limbs. These physical effects are unlikely to slow down or incapacitate users, though, instead serving to lift any lingering anxiety. Super Jack’s ideal combination of mental and physical stimulation can be particularly good for engaging in activities that involve mental and physical coordination — including, but not limited to, exercise, dancing, and even sex. For those in a less active mood, Super Jack can be a great way to break the ice in social situations, sparking conversation and easy camaraderie. Because of its mostly energetic properties, Super Jack is best enjoyed as a daytime treat; consumed before bed, it’s almost certain to keep sleepy smokers awake and wired.
Super Jack’s versatility also makes it useful for medical cannabis patients. Its long-lasting sense of focus can help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain concentration on single tasks. This strain may also help those suffering from mild to moderate stress or depression to spend their time more consciously and deliberately. Super Jack’s physical properties can soothe aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. It may also take the sting out of everyday annoyances like headaches and nausea. Those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance should consume Super Jack with caution, as its early cerebral effects can take on an unnerving feeling of “mindrace.”
Fortunately for home growers, Southseeds has made seeds of Super Jack for sale online. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. The indica-typical plants grow short and bushy with strong lateral branches. Growers should be sure to trim away any broad fan leaves that can prevent light and nutrients from reaching low-growing flowering nodes. Super Jack has a brief flowering time for a sativa of about 7 to 8 weeks when grown indoors. It offers growers a yield of about 37 to 46 grams (or 1.3 to 1.6 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
Super Jack’s mellow vibes are excellent for introspection, as well as for a boisterous day shared with friends. Its energy and lucidity can be especially fun on an adventure through the great outdoors.
