Black Jack is a marijuana strain that produces hard buds with huge, grape-like calyxes that are completely encrusted with THC. The taste is heavy and flavorful and the strain produces exceptionally long-lasting effects. Because of its high THC levels, Black Jack is popular among medical marijuana patients.
Sweet Seeds’ Black Jack has a high that strikes the user quickly, leading to a sense of heaviness in the head. As it progresses, the effects are generally uplifting, anxiety-reducing and depression-relieving. Users report a lasting sense of focus and motivation, although this energy can veer into jitters and paranoia depending on dosage and individual tolerance. Although there is a mild body high, this strain, like Jack Herer, strikes a very good balance between cerebral and physical effects. Sweet Seeds’ Black Jack is appropriate for daytime use for users looking to complement daily activities or possibly exercise routines.
Nirvana’s Black Jack has many of these same properties, but coupled with a nice bodily effect, often described as relaxing. The strong pull of this strain may slow users down, but will not necessarily lead to immobilizing couchlock. The sense of physical relaxation can contribute to relief from chronic pain and can also be a remedy for insomnia. The mental effects of Nirvana’s Black Jack are often described as more psychedelic than cerebral — visual distortions, strong time dilation, and a generally trippy sharpening of the senses may not be uncommon. Because of the possibility of couchlock and this strain’s other disorienting effects, it is recommended for evening or nighttime usage, as a social lubricant or an individual sleep aid.
Both the Sweet Seeds and Nirvana Black Jack varieties have a high that is thought to last much longer than average — from 3 to 4 hours depending on dosage.
