About Captain Jack
Sail on a boat to dreamland with Captain Jack at the helm, a mysterious strain that will likely have you drifting off to sleep in no time. A cross between Chemo and Jack Herer, with some speculating that William’s Wonder is in the mix too, this bud takes the idea of an evenly balanced hybrid to another level. If only we knew who to thank for blessing the world with this gift.
At a high of 25% THC, Captain Jack might not seem too intimidating, but a few puffs could change your mind. Flat nugs are a deep green shade and feature a light covering of orange hairs with minimal trichomes to be seen. If you think she’s a tame gal to smoke, one taste will prove you wrong, as sweet and sour citrus, pine, earth, and herbs will wake up even the sleepiest of sailors.
This burst of flavor won’t really do much for your overall experience, however, as most note that Captain Jack is a fairly sedating strain. Where her sativa genetics are we don’t really know, as you’ll likely feel a creeping head and body high that relaxes you to the core. Those who enjoy this strain for recreational purposes often save her for the end of the day where settling down on the couch with a few favorite snacks is the only item on the agenda.
Due to Captain Jack’s bold way of bringing on mellow characteristics, many rely on her for therapeutic help. This strain is said to work wonders when it comes to easing anxiety and depression as you’d have to struggle to actually form a negative thought in this relaxed headspace. Physical woes including migraines, muscle soreness, and just about any other type of pain you can think of are reportedly soothed with just a few tokes. Individuals who struggle with insomnia have said that this strain can help to bring sleep with ease, although that might depend on your specific tolerance.
By all accounts it sounds like Captain Jack is a must-have strain for any cannabis lover, however, home growers might be disappointed to learn that acquiring seeds or clones is a tall task. As is often the case with unknown breeders, being able to grow obscure strains yourself tends to be a challenge, especially since you’re taking a shot in the dark when it comes to how to actually rear a decent harvest. If you’re one of the lucky few that finds a stray seed hitching a ride on your most recent nug purchase, consult an experienced grower.
Potent and delicious, Captain Jack is certainly a strain to try the next time you see her on dispensary shelves. Her availability across the United States is unclear, although it does seem that she likes to linger in the Colorado area. If you’re looking for a potentially super sedating strain that can help you to unwind after a long day, it’s in your best interest to hop aboard this ship.
