Jasmine is a popular Indica-dominant strain of cannabis first grown in Israel. This indica-dominant strain was pioneered by the brilliant minds at Tikun Olam, the first ever state-sponsored cannabis company in Israel. This company has made a name for itself worldwide for the high quality flower that it produces, with Jasmine being no exception to this rule. Despite this bud’s average 15% THC concentration, the effects of this bud are sure to satisfy even the most experienced stoner.
Jasmine is a cross between two strains: Silver Haze and Golden Boy. As such, the plant inherited mostly indica effects but much of the sativa physical structure. Jasmine flowers are often oversized, branching in multiple directions, light, and airy. However, the buds are quite beautiful to behold, and are covered in bright red hairs and chunky white trichomes. This strain has also been reported to be covered in a thick coating of resin. The aroma of this bud is quite mellow, and is often described as “soft” by those who have consumed it before. The aroma is quite floral, as keen noses will be able to pick out different scents of flowers and herbs like lavender wrapped up in this bud. This bud tastes a lot like what would happen if you mixed roses and vanilla, you’ll just have to try it for yourself.
The effects of this flower are quite potent when you take into consideration how low this strain’s THC concentration is. The onset of the high from this strain is quite mellow. While not a creeper, the onset of this high is noticeable but soft. You will initially feel elated and light headed, as positive emotions and thoughts rush to fill your mind with positive feelings.
Most users report Jasmine creating a powerful heady experience that often leaves them spaced out. In addition, this strain will create a warm body buzz in your entire body that will have you almost completely relaxed. These mellow effects make Jasmine an excellent beginner strain as it has a bit of everything without going overboard in any direction.
Jasmine has become incredibly popular amongst medical cannabis patients looking to alleviate symptoms of chronic stress and pain, nausea, GI issues, lack of appetite, and depression! This jack-of-all trades strain is best consumed during the day or the afternoon as its mild effects are a great way to relax and destress.
