About Lavender Jones
Lavender Jones is a hybrid strain of cannabis that is slightly sativa-leaning. The original breeder behind this strain remains a mystery, but the community is dead-set that this strain is a cross between Purple Urkle and Casey Jones. Lavender Jones, or Purple Jones as the community often refers to it, is a popular strain in the markets where it is grown, as it has a beautiful appearance and amazing effects to boot. Likewise, the THC concentration on this flower averages around 17%, but can reach as high as 20%.
Lavender Jones nugs are quite typical of sativa-dominant buds. Expect long, pepper-shaped buds with hues ranging from mint to forest green in color. Long, wiry brown hairs wrap themselves around the colas on this flower, and often cover much of the surface. Oversized white trichomes are spread evenly on the surface of this beautiful flower. The aroma of this bud is pretty sweet, with distinct hints of grape and floral haze inherited from its Purple Urkle genetics. The flavor is quite similar, with strong flavors of grape on the exhale.
Much like the herb it is named for, Lavender Jones delivers users a fresh, upbeat experiences with mildly calming relaxation. The onset of the Lavender Jones high is quite mellow, and before you know it the herb has completely relaxed your mind and body. Although you won’t feel couchlocked, you won’t really feel a need to move as you’ll be wrapped up in an introspective haze. The sativa nature of this flower shows its true colors here, as it provides users with a heady cerebral high rife with introspective thought. Users who suffer from anxiety or paranoia may wish to avoid this flower, as its heady nature can lead to recursive and negative thinking. As this flower is quite heady, it is not recommended for night time use, and is fit more for a wake-and-bake situation or for daytime usage. Medical cannabis patients have reported that Lavender Jones has improved their symptoms of chronic stress, pain, depression, nausea, and inflammations like artritis! This isn’t to say the bud has no recreational merits, as it can be quite fun to go out on the town after hitting a bit of this flower. In addition, you might want to prep a tasty snack before hitting on a bit of this flower, as Lavender Jones has been known to give users strong cases of the munchies.
This strain originated in Leadville, CO, 2007-08. It was an accidental cross pollination. A handful of seeds were given to me, and the best to come out was the "Lavender Jones". Love this strain, wish I had it back. Great to see how widely its been shared around the community.
