Review: As a patient, I prefer to purchase cannabis that is lab-tested, but Craft’s reputation preceded it not only by word of mouth but on Reddit, so I gave it a shot. The owner informed me that Black Jack is a cross between Black Domina and Jack Herer. I meant to take only a hit or two at first, but the taste was fantastic and I consumed more than planned. The Jack Herer lineage was apparent, with an immediate energy rush followed shortly by a strong body buzz. A word of caution to those sensitive to sativa-dominant strains: That jittery feeling of having one cup of coffee too many was replicated by the couple of extra hits, and I ended up taking a walk to burn it off. That melted after about half an hour into a sharp euphoria that lasted uncharacteristically long considering my tolerance. (I was still extremely high for about 75-90 minutes after smoking.) I’m very curious about the actual THC content of this crop, but I suspect it is on the higher end. It’s definitely better suited to a low-energy morning than the evening, unless you have things to get done.
Cannabis effects vary wildly from patient to patient based on a multitude of factors, including THC tolerance, brain chemistry and personal taste. This review is based on the subjective experience of one patient.
