We all know the feeling. Some mornings you wake up feeling groggy and tired, and the thought of facing a busy workday fills you with dread. While many use caffeine to clear the cobwebs in the morning, some cannabis lovers reach for their favorite wake-and-bake marijuana strain.
These cannabis strains are typically sativa, or, in the case of hybrids, are heavily sativa-dominant. Wake-and-bake strains usually contain a potent THC level and provide short-term energizing and uplifting effects.
Super Jack is one such strain, and among the cannabis community, it’s renowned as one of the best out there.
What Is the Super Jack Strain?
Amsterdam-based South Seeds developed the Super Jack strain by crossing Jack Herer and Super Silver Haze. Super Jack, a.k.a. Super Jack Haze, is a sativa-dominant hybrid with a 70:30 sativa to indica ratio.
Due to its energizing effects, for some cannabis users, Super Jack is the ‘go-to’ morning strain.
Some opt to consume this strain using a vaporizer for a rapid onset of Super Jack’s energizing effects. After consuming Super Jack, users typically experience an initial cerebral buzz, followed by mood-enhancing effects. Users also report feeling more talkative and keen to engage in social interactions.
The cerebral high is pretty potent, so this strain is unsuitable for novice cannabis consumers. If you have a reasonable tolerance to marijuana, you still need to be careful with how much you consume. Overindulging on this strain could potentially lead to some unpleasant adverse reactions. We will discuss these in the “Possible Side Effects” section below.
One of the great things about Super Jack is its alluring scent. Even if Cat’s Piss were a good wake-and-bake option, we doubt too many people would be reaching for it! In contrast, Super Jack’s buttery aroma is a real delight. Once you light up a joint, it provides a spiced citrus smell with hints of herb and earth.
This strain’s flavor also has a buttery base and is complemented by a sweet tropical fruit taste. Add in hints of spice and pine, and you have a great-tasting wake-and-bake strain. Some Super Jack consumers notice extra sweetness on the exhale.
Super Jack has mint green buds that have a spade-shaped appearance. Once harvest time approaches, trichomes, glistening like chandelier crystals, give this strain a frosted appearance. These plants have vibrant, bright-orange colored pistils that stand out prominently on the plant’s surface when fully mature.
