About Jelly Roll
Close your eyes and picture yourself sitting on the tip of a mountain, the cold air hitting your face as you meditate against the backdrop of your surroundings. If you love a soothing high that puts you in a creative place, search no more. Well, you might have to search pretty hard as this is a super rare indica-dominant strain bred to showcase two beloved strains. Not to be confused with one of its more popular parents, Jelly Roll is a cross between Jellyroll and Gupta Kush that leaves users feeling extra close to their inner selves.
As there really isn’t much known about this strain due to its rarity and breeder secrecy, there hasn’t actually been any exact figures published on its THC, CBD, or CBN content. Guessing by its parentage, it is probably in the 18% - 20% range, but that’s not set in stone. The buds are dense and neon green with orange hairs and amber trichomes. This appearance is only enhanced by the overwhelming grape and anise flavors. Some describe Jelly Roll as dank, but more so than just dank, the buds are spicy and rich in taste and aroma, with earthiness and grape that dances on your nose.
Jelly Roll has a high full of contrasts. It uplifts your spirit from the first hit and gives you an initial burst of energy as the high makes its way through your system. This phase is not a long one and you may find your mind to be on some particularly arousing activities (if you catch our drift). The first wave of energy is pretty quickly replaced with a heavy relaxation that is oddly paired with creative thoughts, though don’t expect to get too much done if you haven’t already, as this is typically the time where you start to feel sleepy and weighted. This strain involves a heavy comedown and will have you reaching for your pillow in a big way.
This flower is a nice one to have by your side if you struggle with chronic stress or anxiety. It sweeps in with an uplifting rush and you can almost literally feel your woes fall away. With that being said, as it is technically a downer strain, it is not recommended for depression or the low sides of bipolar. If you suffer from harsh cramps or headaches, even light cases of nausea, Jelly Roll is a nice choice to help stave off those symptoms. Where this strain really shines, though, is with restlessness. For those that suffer from insomnia or other sleep depriving disorders, you’ll love the long-lasting sedation this strain provides.
There is hardly any information about growing this strain specifically as it is shrouded in secrets, however judging by its parentage and its indica-dominant breeding it is likely that this strain would have a short flowering time and yield at above-average levels. Its parent strain, Gupta Kush, is one of the higher yielding plants on the market, referred to as a “super yield” plant. With any luck, this child has caught a bit of that.
If you are looking for a sweet treat that will enhance your mood and creativity without having you bouncing off the walls, Jelly Roll checks all those boxes. This smooth smoke will have you feeling completely at ease and wanting to experience it all over again the next day.
