For this cannabis strain review I tried out some Jack Haze that’s made by 7Acres. If you do some quick research around the interwebs, you will not find too much criticism when it comes to this cultivar; well, this Jack Haze strain review will be no different, I’m impressed! This sativa-dominant strain came in with 20.24% THC and an inconsiderable amount of CBD ( the range is 17- 24% THC). All in all, this was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience! Below is a more detailed breakdown.
Lineage: Jack Herer x Super Silver Haze cross
Terpene Profile: The dominant terpenes are terpinolene, myrcene, ocimene, caryophyllene and pinene.
Packaging Details: Packaged on 5/5/2020 and tested/reviewed on 8/20/20, exactly 107 days later. Lot# JH01P007-A
Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $30.40 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ($8.69/gram)
This Jack haze cultivar looked solid; the bag appeal was there for sure. The humidity content was on point at 52% (still could’ve been better, so I used a Boveda pack to bring the RH to 62%), the dense, well-trimmed nugs were covered in a sheet of trichomes, the buds were of a light-green shade, and included many dark orange, almost grey pistils. I had to drop the score slightly because of the trichome glands that weren’t very intact, which may have something to do with the enormous container used for such a small amount of flower and lots of maneuvering throughout a few months. There were a couple of medium-sized nugs, but all the other ones were fairly small. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve come across WAY worst in the legal market, so this is above average for sure; it just doesn’t stand out from the crowd too much.
Enjoyable, pleasant, addictive, refreshing are the words I’d use to describe the smell that popped out of the freshly sealed container. It starts with a strong sweet citrus smell, which is accented with notes of pine, mint, a bit of diesel, and a tiny touch of spicy pepper. The complex terpene profile makes it, so your nose is going in different directions every time you take a whiff. It’s a perfect sweet and spicy mix as you get the sweet Haze characteristics mixed with the spicey/gassy notes that Jack usually provides. When I say addictive, I found myself opening up the container and shoving my nose in it without even smoking it! It gives off the piney/citrusy smell that cleaning products do, in a good way.
I got absolutely nothing negative to say about the flavor or the smoothness of the smoke here. I got a bust of piney awesomeness on every single inhale, the palate was left with after tones of sweet lemon mixed with a touch of diesel. On top of the great flavor, the entire smoking experience was flawless, it just made me want more!
This Jack Haze gave off some excellent Sativa-like effects, centralized mostly in the head, providing some uplifting and relaxing vibes while not giving off that sluggish feeling. The peak came in at about 15 minutes, and the high lasted about 90 minutes total. For me, the terpinolene-dominant, sativa-dominant strains with over 20% have been providing the perfect mix of effects lately, although I understand that everyone’s formula may be a little different.
This was a fantastic experience for me, it was similar to 7Acres’ Jean Guy that I tried out when it comes to aroma and flavor, but I found this Jack Haze to be slightly better overall. I would recommend this to everyone to try, everyday consumers may add this cultivar to their list after trying it out once, beginners will find that there’s a lot that stands out with this strain compared to others that they may have tried. I’m legitimately excited for new cultivars to come out under the 7Acres brand.
