About Joliet Jake
When breeding cannabis becomes a scientific endeavor, the results are usually pretty fantastic. Such is the case with Joliet Jake, a strongly indica-dominant creation by Cresco Labs. They’ve crossed two legendary strains, Pre-98 Bubba Kush and Katsu Bubba, that have resulted in a hard to find fan favorite.
Consistent beyond most other strains on the market, Joliet Jake clocks in with a potency of 22% THC. Nugs are fluffy with very few pistils, and while trichomes are chunky, it’s her coating of resin that really adds to her visual appeal. Both flavors and aromas are similar yet different enough to make a clear distinction between the two. Each inhale will bring notes of plum, mint, and citrus to your palate while her smoke takes on a strong menthol aroma with just a hint of fruit.
Even the most experienced users should approach Joliet Jake with caution as this bud is a true creeper in every sense of the word. A few tokes will take a bit to kick in, but once they do, you’ll be enveloped in a blanket of total happiness. With a smile on your face, you’ll find your mind drifts to faraway places, often leaving you a bit spaced out and incredibly calm. Once her physical effects of pure relaxation kick in, you might as well throw in the towel for the night - curl up on the couch and binge some reality television until you fall asleep.
Above all else, Joliet Jake is an excellent strain for overcoming insomnia, although before you completely pass out, she can help with other ailments as well. Depression can be a bear to live with each and every day, so let this strain take away a few of your worries and replace them with happy thoughts. Many find that their appetite increases dramatically during their high, so try this bud if you struggle with nausea or have any type of eating disorder. Lastly, Joliet Jake kicks pain to the curb with soothing bodily effects that last for hours.
The team at Cresco Labs takes their craft incredibly seriously, and rather than acting as a family operation with Bob Marley blasting in the background, they come from a more polished and professional place. That being said, they keep all cultivation information, as well as seeds and clones, a tightly kept secret. While this may be disappointing for some, it does speak to their level of commitment to producing a consistent product.
Sometimes the stress of a long day doesn’t wash off as easily as we’d like, and for those nights, there’s Joliet Jake. Allow this bud to fully take over your mind and body and succumb to her delicious flavors and absolutely sedating effects. Before long you may not even remember your own name.
