Jackalope is a mysterious Sativa-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis. No one knows for sure who first bred this wonder, but most accept that Jackalope is a cross between Black Jack and Chocolope. This strain is pretty hard to come by in most markets, but those who do manage to spot it at their local dispensary are in for a treat. Jackalope combines powerful cerebral effects with an impressive average THC concentration of 21% for an almost unforgettable experience.
As with most sativa-dominant hybrid flowers, Jackalope buds are pretty light and airy. Those used to picking up dense nugs will be impressed with this bud’s unique shape but slightly dismayed by its lack of density. They are often bright green in color, with yellow and golden hues often shining through in many places. The bud is also covered in bright orange hairs and oversized milky-white trichomes.
The aroma and flavor of this bud are two of its largest selling points, as many have described it as cannabis’ version of Neapolitan ice cream. The aroma of this bud is quite nutty, but warm vanilla and sharp chocolate are sure to be the two major scents that fill the room. The flavor is quite similar, but many have described it as a mix of sweet chocolate and smooth vanilla with a bit of berry on the exhale.
The high from Jackalope isn’t one that’s going to hit you hard and fast. This daytime-strain is more of a creeper, and is more likely to catch you off guard if you smoke a lot of it. Before you’re even aware that you’re high, Jackalope seizes your mind and instantly begins to work its magic. First, you’ll get a boost of cerebral energy that will have you up off your feet and accomplishing each and every task on your to-do list.
A lot of medical cannabis patients who suffer from depression and anxiety have reported that this energy transforms into social bubbliness that helps them get out of their shells! Jackalope has also been highly recommended to both medical and recreational consumers alike because of its insane mood-boosting effects.
As with any hybrid strain, a bit of the non-dominant effects also shine through. The body buzz from Jackalope isn’t too strong, and isn’t likely to lull you to sleep. Rather than leaving you stoned from head to toe, the body buzz from this one is pretty mellow and relaxes you without making you feel out of it or sluggish. This mild relaxing effect has made Jackalope a wonder strain for medical consumers looking for something to help fight their chronic stress, pain, and insomnia!
