Purple Crack
The Purple Crack strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that is becoming increasingly prevalent in California. It stems from two classic strains that are each often praised for their floral characteristics and uplifting effects. The Purple Crack Strain: Juicy Fruit X Green Crack I came across this batch of the Purple Crack strain on my latest trip to SFVDM in Van Nuys, CA. This was my first time seeing this strain and I was immediately intrigued upon hearing its name. Common sense told me that the Purple Crack strain was most likely the …

Right away, I knew that I was in for an enjoyable Sativa experience. Like the name would suggest, the Cracker Jack strain was the result of crossing the …
Strawberry Choke
Bred by Kushman Genetics, the Strawberry Choke strain is a slightly different take on a long-time favorite. It was created by back-crossing the Cherry Lopez strain with its Strawberry Cough parent and is most easily described as sweet-tasting and uplifting. Strawberry Choke Strain: Strawberry Cough X Cherry Lopez It should be no secret that we here at Medical Jane are fans of Kyle Kushman’s Strawberry Cough strain. We’ve had the opportunity to enjoy multiple batches of it from …
True Blue
The True Blue strain is a hybrid known for its extremely floral aroma and ability to provide a relaxing full body buzz, believed to be the result of in-breeding DJ Short‘s original Blueberry strain. The True Blue Strain Has Obvious Blueberry Influence As mentioned, it is often suggested that the True Blue strain stems from an inbred hybridization project from a popular breeder that goes by the name of DJ Short. Additionally, the Blue Dream strain has been mentioned as a possible parent for True Blue, probably …
Black Jack
Black Jack is a hybrid cannabis strain that stems from two prominent strains from opposite ends of the spectrum. Black Jack Strain: Black Domina X Jack Herer At first thought, I assumed that the Black Jack strain was a combination of the Jack Herer strain and Blackberry (or Blackberry Kush). In fact, the berry-like aroma and slightly purple tint furthered this assumption, leaving me all-but certain that I was correct… However, a small amount of research led me to the realization …
Candy Jack
Popular in its own right, Candy Jack is a phenotype of the J1 strain. It is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that took second place at the first US Cannabis Cup in Denver. What Are The Genetics Of The Candy Jack Cannabis Strain? Some people believe that the Candy Jack strain is a hybridized cross of the Jack Herer and Cotton Candy strains. However, it is simply a phenotype of the J1 strain. “The Candy Jack strain was developed for its exceptionally sweet smoke.” Being …
Power Plant
These Power Plant buds are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Intriguing to the eye, it is rare to see such a wide variety in bud color. Also, the sheer size of the buds and bright outlines from the trim make it a visual master piece. The trichomes even reflect in different shades of color ranging from bright white to burnt yellow. So strange looking it is almost like this strain was actually grown in a power plant. Power Plant is a powerful Sativa strain known to make patients very social. A great batch of buds to medicate with before …
J1
J1 (or J-1) seems to be popping up around a lot lately. Trust us, that is a good thing! This Sativa-dominant hybrid is sure to be more and more popular as the year goes on. J1 genetics consist of Jack Herer and Skunk #1, making this a delicious strain to wake up to. The J1 Cannabis Strain Stems From Jack Herer & Skunk #1 You may notice Skunk #1 in a lot of popular strains.
Sour Jack
Sour Jack genetics can be traced to the mix of the two classic Sativa-dominant strains: Sour Diesel and Jack Herer. A unique aroma that is much more reminiscent of Jack Herer — very fruity (similar to grapefruit). Although, the smell is most-similar to Durban Poison in my opinion. “Sour Jack provided lots of good energy with a hazy head-high that lasted for roughly 2-3 LONG hours.” As you would expect, Sour Jack smokes exactly like Sour Diesel and …
Panama Red
The Panama Red strain is an old school pure Sativa from the Panama region that was extremely popular between 1960 to the early 90’s. Since then, the genetics have died off slowly as most growers have switched to other Sativa strains that have faster grow cycles (to have more profitable grows). Panama Red’s flowering time is roughly 11-13 weeks which is longer than the most other popular Sativa strains. “Acapulco Gold and Panama Red are two classic strains all aged cannabis smokers will remember medicating with back in the day.” …
Chocolope
Bred by DNA Genetics, the Chocolope strain has genetics linking back to Chocolate Thai (a Sativa landrace from Thailand) and Cannalope Haze. DNA Genetics’ Chocolope Strain: A Collection Of Hazes The Chocolate Thai in its lineage is known to provide a soaring head-high that will win over any crowd. The problem is that Chocolate Thai, by itself, takes roughly 14 weeks for flowering and even then it will rarely yield well. “Chocolope is considered to be a …
UK Cheese
The UK Cheese Strain Is A Balanced Hybrid The name ‘UK Cheese’ is an ode to the strain’s birthplace. It is rumored to be a phenotype of Cheese that showed unusual, yet favorable uniqueness out of a pack of Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 that was grown in the hills of southern England (hence the UK in the name). The phenotype had larger buds and a splendidly pungent cheese smell among other characteristics that set it apart. This plant of the Skunk #1 was cloned and renamed Cheese after its distinct smell.
