Most cannabis plants get their names from some inherent quality they possess. Apple Jack is no different: its buds smell like freshly sliced apples picked from grandma’s backyard.
This one’s a near perfect hybrid, with genetics that straddle the 50/50 line between sativa and indica dominance. Its THC content usually hovers over the 20% mark, and it strikes a nice balance between the cerebral qualities expected from a sativa while also conferring the body high characteristic of an indica. CBD levels usually come in around 0.1%.
Apple Jack is an excellent strain for those looking to elevate while remaining functional. Its high is both cognitively stimulating while also relaxing, so those seeking a creative kick may want to try out this strain. The high affects happy thoughts and can lead to some long, talkative smoking sessions. The body high is somewhat tingly and electrifying, so it’s best to save this one for social use rather than for strict medical applications. However, the body buzz may be sufficient for some minor pain relief.
Side effects include drowsiness, which can prove antithetical to smoking with friends.
