It’s been pretty warm lately, despite the fact it’s fall. I’ve take some time off to enjoy the warmth while it’s still here (among other things), so it seems fitting to jam in one last “sunny day” strain, before all the leaves fall. This week we bring you Black Jack by Sweet As!.
I picked up an eighth for $40 from American Mary in Wallingford (look for the ominous green doors). The budtender I spoke with recommended this strain and he definitely steered me in the right direction.
Sweet As! Cannabis is owned by Green Freedom, based out of Elma, WA. These NW producers have a high standard when it comes to growing marijuana. Having a foundation in the medical scene, Sweet As! focuses on solid genetics, quality nutrients, organic pest control and strict environmental control.

Bred from Black Domina x Jack Herer, Black Jack is often used in the medical community because of it’s high THC levels. This strain melts away stress, anxiety – but at the same time encourages getting out from beyond your couch. Makes you more relaxed, give you energy; the perfect combo.
The bud was thick and crusted with kief. After a spell in the grinder, Black Jack burned smooth out of a pipe. It’s always nice to get a giant nug, “yes the giant weed flower is my co-pilot” (it’s big enough to be a person is what I’m tediously getting at).
Sniffing the bud, there was a definite fruity-mango scent accompanied with notes of pepper and spice. The flavor was earthy, and sweet. I was not expecting such a tropical vibe from the strain.
Getting high with Black Jack is euphoric and engrossing. It’s easy to get lost in your thoughts, or the view in front of you. This strain demands your attention, but in a way that is welcoming – not an abrasive high by any means.
My favorite thing to do with this strain just get out and walk. Breath in some fresh air, and find something or somewhere new. Black Jack is a special strain, and it can lead you towards adventure. Sedation is minimal, it’s easy to keep forging ahead even after the high fades.
Sweet As products are available at American Mary (Wallingford), among other pot shops in the Seattle area.
