Welcome back and Happy New Year. We took a little break from reviews to thoroughly enjoy the holidays, and now High Above Seattle is back for a much more stoned 2015.
This is in fact the fourth review we’ve written about CannaSol Farms’ product (see here, here, and here) – if that doesn’t tell you something, then let me go ahead and tell you somethin’. CannaSol Farms is based in Riverside, Washington and has a focus on growing superb marijuana. They were recently featured on High Times, and are one of our favorite producers.
Let’s take a look at our first strain of 2015, Jack Herer:
Jack Herer is named after a marijuana activist, and was apparently cultivated in the Netherlands around the mid-1990’s. It is a cross of a Haze hybrid, Northern Lights #5, and Shiva Skunk.
Here’s the specifics for our strain:
(view the photo for more information)
The herb at hand had a very spicy smell when I opened the package, almost too spicy – like it had been overcooked. Little did I know, this is a telltale sign of a truly great Jack Herer strain. Upon splitting apart a nugget, the spicey aroma was overpowered by a pungent lemon dish cleaner scent.
As you can see from the photos, the nugs themselves were pretty small – but well cured all the same. They crumble nicely, and contain a tremendous flavour when smoking through a vaporizer. The taste is piney and tangy, almost hoppy (like an IPA).
Naturally, after taking a hit – I had to get up, grab an IPA from the fridge (Widmer Brothers’ Hopside Down) and drink it alongside hitting the ol’ Hot Box.
The high is that of a creeper, slowly sneaking up until there’s no denying that you’re stoned off your ass. Don’t be fooled and keep smoking until you are high, take your time and let it sink in. Although the high is staggeringly potent, there is a crispness and clarity that allows you to function normally or perhaps even better then usual.
Sometimes pot gives you powers, and this indeed a powerful strain. I’d recommend Jack Herer for getting work/chores done, going out, having a good time – it’s really a doin’ stuff kinda herb. Oh right, and it goes great with an IPA!
Nice job CannaSol Farms, per usual. Tune in two weeks from now for another marijuana review.
