Searching for an easy hybrid that won’t zap your energy? Critical Jack is a focused yet laidback flower bred by Dinafem in Spain. Though it may be a little difficult to come across in the U.S., this hybrid is worthy of a try if you can find it.
Critical Jack is an uplifting cross between Critical + and Jack Herer. Most know Jack Herer as one of the most popular sativas around. Critical + is not so widely known, but it is a balanced and high-yielding hybrid blend of Big Bud and a collection of Skunks.
So, Critical Jack has plenty of the high-yielding and relaxing qualities of Critical +. All the while, it features much of the energizing effects of Jack Herer. The result is a sativa-dominant hybrid filled with zest. The THC content ranges from moderate to high, with an average of around 18%.
The taste from Critical Jack is strongly citrus with a slight musky, tropical kick. The Jack Herer lineage adds ample pine flavors to the mix, amplifying the cooling taste of the strain. The pine comes through more in the taste than the scent.
The Critical Jack experience
This strain is an excellent choice for Jack Herer fans. It has inherited some significant sativa lineage from the Skunk lines and from Herer, so this strain provides plenty of mental stimulation and focus. The difference is that Critical Jack is a true hybrid.
While clear-headed and powerful sativa traits are dominant, there are few indica features in there as well. A heavy-lidded body high becomes more apparent in high doses. The indica lineage also amps up the muscle relaxing qualities of this strain.
An easy and gentle wave of physical relaxation acts as the perfect complement to an otherwise alert and stimulating flower. If you pace yourself and consume in moderation, Critical Jack is a great wake and bake strain. Even the grumpiest of night owls will appreciate the cheerful and vibrant effects of this herb.
