About Jacky White
Jacky White is a sativa-leaning hybrid that joins a fast-growing family of quality Jack Herer crossbreeds. The creation of Paradise Seeds, the same purveyors of Nebula and Sensi Star, the strain is a cross between Jack Herer and the notoriously sticky White Widow. When these two powerhouse strains combine, the result is a buzzy sativa with enough energy to please cannabis newcomers and veterans alike. Some subtle indica effects on the backend keep this bud from becoming overstimulating. Its THC content has been measured at between 13% and 18%.
Jacky White sets itself apart right away with flowers that range from medium to large in size. The buds have an elongated, almost cylindrical shape. Despite their sativa leanings, these buds have a characteristically indica structure, compact and densely-packed. The tightly-coiled leaves are a yellowish green and are wound through with curly orange pistils. Finally, White Widow passes on her tendency for sky-high resin production, with plentiful trichomes that make the flowers very difficult to break up without the aid of a quality grinder.
One of Jacky White’s highlight is its tangy, candy-like flavor profile. When properly cured, the buds burst with a sweet, citrus-tinged aroma. There are some tropical accents lurking underneath as well, calling to mind strings like Mango. Grinding up these impressive flowers releases some of the herbal, minty goodness that Jack Herer fans know and love. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Jacky White burns with an uncommonly smooth and satisfying smoke that tastes like oranges on the exhale.
Unusually, considering its otherwise sativa tendencies, Jacky White hits the smoker relatively quickly, sometimes going to their head before they’ve even exhaled. Some initial symptoms include a tingle around the temples or behind the eyes, along with a possible flushing of the cheeks. Jacky White also goes to work right away on the user’s sense, transforming visual stimuli to take on a new intensity and dimension. Many users also experience a flattening of their depth perception or an inexplicable feeling of time moving more slowly. These psychedelic effects tend to be short-lived and soon morph into a stimulating, cerebral mindset in which the user’s thoughts may flow more freely, jumping from one to the next in free association. Internally monologues can become louder than usual, leading those under Jacky White’s influence to become distracted from their immediate surroundings. This kind of single-minded energy can be a good way to accompany complicated, work-related tasks. For more imaginative smokers, it can also open up new pathways of creativity and brainstorming. As Jacky White’s high progresses, this formerly buzzy stimulation can begin to even out. A subtle body high takes over, with limbs and eyes becoming droopy and breathing happening more deeply and evenly. Though still mentally lucid at this point, consumers may want to pursue less active endeavors, like listening to some music (maybe something by Jack White or the White Stripes?) or watching a movie (perhaps Jackie Brown?). In these later stages, Jacky White’s upbeat euphoria can be a fun way to pass the time with a small group of like-minded friends. Because of its gradual decrease in energy levels, this strain is recommended for use between late afternoon and early evening; if toked right before bed, it’s liable to keep smokers awake and wired.
Jacky White’s versatile effects may also be of use to medical cannabis patients. Its long-lasting focus may help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain concentration, while its calm euphoria can take the edge off of mild to moderate cases of stress and depression. It may also dull physical pain, ranging from disease-related afflictions to everyday discomforts like indigestion. Because it can impart a strong, fast-paced pattern of thought, Jacky White is not the best choice for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Paradise has made seeds of Jacky White available directly through its site. The strain can be grown indoors or out, although success outdoors typically requires a humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Jacky White flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and is ready for harvest in mid-October when grown outdoors. It offers patients, gardeners, a relatively high yield for their efforts.
Because of its summary flavors, enjoy Jacky White on a warm, breezy day -- or, alternatively, on a bleak winter afternoon when you’ve forgotten what the sun looks like.
