About Jolly Green Giant
Jolly Green Giant, named for the famous veggie can mascot, is a giant in the world of pungent cannabis strains, boasting as high as 26% THC (and up to 0.36% CBD). Its flavor profile is an acquired one, favoring the strong taste of herbs with hints of fruit and pine.

The result is indica-dominant (70/30) and beautiful to look at. Continue reading to learn about what you can expect from a visit by the Jolly Green Giant.
This strain has a powerful, pungent flavor profile provided by the main terpene in this strain, myrcene. We suspect it also has traces of caryophyllene, limonene, and others due to the complex tastes that have been reported. Jolly Green Giant begins by washing herbs over your palette with a potent punch, progressing to sweeter flavors like apple, berry, apricot, and honey. Eventually, the strain evokes woody pine flavors and an earthy aroma, with herbs filling the room, finishing with a hint of lime. If it sounds like we’re describing a phenomenal drink or a gourmet dish, it’s because the strain has a complex flavor profile that not only encourages enjoyment – it downright demands it.
The Jolly Green Giant plant is beautiful, with giant bright green nugs that are rounded off like lumpy olives, cloaked in thick amber pistils and dusted with milk-white crystals. The whole strain glitters green in the light. It grows up to 80 inches in height outdoors (less inside) and yields decently at around 400g per plant. Jolly Green Giant takes around 53-62 days to flower.
The main effects reported by users of the Jolly Green Giant are that its influence encourages focus and relaxing energy. This makes the strain great for afternoons when you want to work on hobbies, clean up around the house, or work out. The strain can encourage euphoria as well as arousal, as its tingling tendrils stretch out from your neck to your appendages, encouraging feelings of laughter, energy, relaxation, and overall jolliness. Some users report feeling hungry, thirsty, and unable to sleep on this strain, which provides even more evidence for Jolly Green Giant as a great afternoon companion and a clumsy evening one.
