Bred by TGA Subcool Seeds, Galactic Jack is a cross between Jack Herer and Space Queen. Jack Herer is one of the most well-loved sativas in the history of contemporary cannabis strains. Space Queen is a zippy sativa-dominant hybrid that provides a cerebral high and mellow body relaxation.

The THC levels in Galactic Jack can vary significantly from bud to bud. The average sample tests at around 18%. However, the total range can be anywhere from 16 to 26% The lower the THC, the more light and relaxed the experience.

The aroma is similar to a wet evergreen forest. A sweet pine, citrus scent teases the nose first, followed by a hint of sharp pepper. The buds are fluffy rather than dense and feature fern green calyxes and deep orange hairs.

A second version of Galactic Jack was bred by Sin City Seeds. That variation is a cross between an indica, Alien Dog, and Sour Jack. The Sin City version of this strain is more difficult to come by than the previous version from TGA Subcool Seeds.

This is a light and upbeat sativa. Though both parent strains have a reputation for their potency, it provides a gently lifted cerebral high that is not overpowering.

Rather, it encourages a positive sense of well-being and a focused, cheerful attitude.

This strain is more or less clear-headed. Acceptable for daytime consumption, this is a great strain for when you need to get things done. Even when a deadline awaits, it is easy to remain stress-free and productive after a few tastes.

Though classified as a sativa, this strain is really a 70/30 sativa-dominant hybrid. This means that while the cerebral effects are most predominant, some slight indica heritage contributes a calming body high to the overall experience.

Ultimately, it’s a friendly and energizing sativa with a relaxed demeanor.

Galactic Jack is an excellent recreational strain. This is a top choice for going to a baseball game, picnic, or another chill outdoor event.

This isn’t the best strain to take on a strenuous bike ride or a marathon, but it does provide the perfect mix of mental stimulation and relaxation for just about any social event.

Many medical cannabis patients rely on it for relief from mental health conditions. This strain is popular among those with depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders.

Unlike other sativas, Galactic Jack is not associated with raciness or anxiety, though a few consumers report paranoia.

The easygoing nature of this strain makes it a well-suited daytime choice for mental health patients needing relief without sedation.

Additional medical consumers swear by this strain for appetite stimulation and as an anti-nausea solution.
