Jack Herer from Good Flower via The Spot Santa Ana on 3/11/2020. THC tested out to 18.68%. I purchased this for $1 but it typically goes for $25-35 on various menus and could be as cheap as $10 if you get it on the happy hour special at The Spot. Late last year I had some Super Silver Haze from Good Flower that wasn’t all that good, so they sent me a few samples in recompense and this Jack Herer, one of my favorite strains, happened to be amongst the bunch. These fluffy yet shrub like buds are a dusty fern green with marmalade orange pistils and a surprisingly formidable layer of tall white triches.
The nose out of the jar is mostly floral with a bit of fresh cut grass smell and a musty pepper filling out the back end. On busting open a bud there’s a sugar sweetness that emerges and joins that floral scent along with a touch of fruit while pushing that mustiness back just a bit. When breaking it down by hand it falls apart easily and leaves a triche dust on your fingers while the grinds give off a muted version of that classic spicy yet sweet floral Jack scent. The dry pull on the J is sweet floral with a potpourri twist that dissipates quickly. The inhale is smooth and has just a touch of pancake syrup sweetness on the joint where as the bong has a muffled floral quality. The exhale from the joint and bong is a very dull floral funk that hits me like a skunky beer with a touch of sweetness, truth be told though, it’s so faint it’s hard to pull apart. Cross checking the flavors on my MV1 from @ghostvapesofficial at 170c I got a vague mint floral taste, where as at 185c it was a sweeter floral mint that was slightly more pleasant, and at 200c it was a general “vaped weed” taste with a touch of a baked goods aftertaste. The headchange is fairly gentle and and gradually lifts you to a workable buzz. It’s not overwhelmingly strong but it’s not frustratingly weak (i.e. Purple Punch) to the point I’m mad at it for wasting my time. I’m able to work, focus, complete tasks at hand without any issue all the while being accompanied by a mild pleasant buzz that helps me get through the day. It’s very functional and meets the standard for what’s referred to in the tech sector as a “minimum viable product” as it’s just good enough to get the job done. Is it good flower? Hmm, yeah. Is it great flower? No, but it’s also not marketed that way. If I were able to pick this up on the happy hour ticket at The Spot I’d probably do it again but any more than that I’d most likely have to weigh my options.
