About Cherries Jubilee
Cherries Jubilee is a mysterious, mostly indica hybrid with a dynamic taste and a potent body high. It was created by prolific Washington state-based producers Northwest Cannabis Solutions who have kept the strain’s genetic makeup a proprietary secret. Given Cherries Jubilee’s signature flavor profile and heavy, stoney feeling, though, it feels safe to conjecture that Cherry Kush or Cherry OG lie somewhere in its lineage. Northwest Cannabis Solutions measures this hybrid’s potency at a solid 18% THC.
Buds of Cherries Jubilee are classic indica: they adhere in very dense clumps, with the leaves tightly curled around their central stems. The wide leaves themselves are a mossy green and are threaded through with hairy brown to orange pistils. Cloudy white trichomes cover the flowers inside and out, giving them a very sticky texture -- this strain may be difficult to break up without the aid of a quality grinder. As one might expect, the primary aroma of this strain is tart cherries; some sweet berry notes are also mixed in, underscoring the flowers’ bag appeal. Surprisingly for an indica, Cherries Jubilee has very little underlying skunk or musk. Grinding up or breaking open the buds yields even more of a fruity scent. When combusted, this strain gives off a smooth smoke that tastes sweet and fruity on the exhale, with a subtle hint of cherry.
Cherries Jubilee has a sneaky high that mounts slowly. After several minutes, smokers may feel a tingle in the neck that eventually spreads down through the core and limbs. Waves of relaxation ebb and flow, making the user content to kick back in the closest comfortable surroundings. Any mental effects from this strain come through in the form of palpable emotional uplift -- Cherries Jubilee won’t keep your thoughts running in circles, leaving you free to have a rambling, stimulating conversation with friends or to just kick back with TV and some snacks. Be warned that sedative effects intensify as dosage is increased, and after a few bowls you may find yourself pinned to the couch. A potent and long-lasting strain even for experienced cannabis users, Cherries Jubilee is more of an evening or nighttime strain.
Cherries Jubilee has significant benefits for medical cannabis patients as well. Its sedative and anti-inflammatory properties can help soothe deep-seated aches and pains, whether they’re temporary or chronic and disease-related. Its mental tranquility can also provide short-term relief from the troubling symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD. In high enough doses, Cherries Jubilee can even be an effective treatment for insomnia, lulling users into a deep and restful sleep. Because of the relatively low-grade cerebral effects, this strain comes with a lower risk of paranoia and may be appropriate for users who are prone to anxiety or who have a low THC tolerance.
Northwest Cannabis Solutions has not made seeds of this tasty strain available for sale online. As such, prospective growers will need to obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants of Cherries Jubilee in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” Although there is limited information available on its ideal cultivation, we know that it can be successfully grown indoors or out (although outdoor growing requires warm, Mediterranean-like climates). Because of its primarily indica nature, it’s also a safe bet that plants of this strain grow low and bushy and can easily be accommodated in indoor spaces.
Something of a cannabis dessert delicacy, Cherries Jubilee enjoys wide popularity in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to flowers, this strain’s producers also sell concentrated preparations like vape cartridges that retain all of that fruity goodness. Enjoy this indica at a laid-back party...but once people get a whiff, be prepared to share.
