Before enjoying a bowl or joint of 9 Pound Hammer, the smoker may want to consider stocking their cupboard with snacks to satisfy the inevitable onset of the munchies shortly after consumption.

Buds of 9 Pound Hammer are neon green and dense, with undertones of darker greens and purple. The buds are covered with resin, and they are typically sticky to the touch. The aroma is sweet and fruity. Users will taste sweet grape, lime and a trace of earthiness on the inhale, with more pungent sweetness on the exhale. Fans of "fruity" cannabis strains will most likely enjoy the flavor and smell of 9 Pound Hammer.
Overall, the effects of 9 Pound Hammer are indicative of its 80/20 indica to sativa ratio. The buzz typically lasts longer than average and gives the smoker a rush of happiness before settling into a lethargic and sleepy state. It is best consumed in the evening or as a nightcap; a large bowl of 9 Pound Hammer is not recommended as a wake-and-bake option unless the smoker plans to chill out and watch a few movies. The strain's popularity in the Pacific Northwest is understandable, as it could be a nice complement to a cold and rainy weekend afternoon in Oregon or Washington where getting outside and being active is unlikely.
Commercial growers like 9 Pound Hammer because it produces high yields in a short time span of about 55 to 60 days. It is recommended that 9 Pound Hammer be grown indoors, though outdoor growers have had plenty of success with the strain.
9 Pound Hammer can be found in California and Nevada, though the availability is not quite as ample as it is in the Pacific Northwest. Still, due to its high potency and intense indica effects, both recreational and medical users are attracted to 9 Pound Hammer. While certainly not the ideal strain for an active day of work or exercise, it packs a punch worthy of its name for nighttime smokers who like to enjoy a peaceful evening and a full night of sleep.
