J1 is the result of a cross between two of America's favorite strains -- Skunk #1 and Jack Herer. Known for a clear-headed, energetic high, J1 has a way of getting you out of bed and ready to conquer your day. This is a relatively hard-hitting high, however, and isn't always a good idea for novice smokers; expect THC levels between 20-23%. If you're suffering from a mental health condition, like PTSD, bipolar disorder, ADD/ADHD, or depression, J1 might be the right strain for you.

Overview of J1
When you go to pick up some J1 (Jack One), you might experience a little bit of sticker shock. This high-end hybrid comes with a high-end price, but most consumers agree; it's completely worth it. While this kind of experience is widely appealing, novice smokers should take it easy; J1's THC levels regularly hit 21-23% potency.
J1's light green nugs are fairly densely packed, covered in thicker, burnt orange hairs and a healthy trichome smattering. While the aesthetic is appealing, it's the aroma that you'll notice more than anything. This strain has a seriously pungent citrus note, interwoven with an earthy, spicy scent. Watch out if you're smoking indoors-- this smell tends to permeate the entire room and linger for quite awhile.
The aroma from the bud translates directly to the flavor as you light up; think spicy and earthy on the inhale, with a sugary sweet exhale.
As we mentioned above, the THC levels in this strain tend to fall on the high side; no need to take more than two or three hits to get you going. Beginner consumers are advised to take it easy, as the sweet taste and silky smoke from J1 can have you accidentally smoking more than you intended.
Potential Positive Effects of J1
The immediate effect is almost entirely cerebral; smokers feel inspired, creative, energetic, alert, and clear-headed. That clarity and energy combo is great for creators, sports players, business people, and anyone looking for a pleasant, euphoric high that keeps them moving at a fast clip.
Favored as a wake and bake strain, J1 is not advised for just before bedtime use; you may find yourself lying awake and your mind racing with ideas for longer than you intended. You may notice a bit of physical relaxation too, but not the kind that bogs you down or melts your body. Just a muscular ease that will make you feel ready to take on the world.
Potential Medical Effects of J1
Medically, J1 is used to treat a variety of disorders, mostly in the mental health space. It's often prescribed to patients who are struggling with PTSD, bipolar disorder, ADD/ADHD, depression, and chronic fatigue. This strain removes the stress and anxiety from your life, so it's a good idea for anyone who needs a quick boost of calm.
Potential Negative Effects of J1
This is not a strain for consumers who hope to avoid the munchies-- J1 has a tendency to send you right into line at your local taco bell. If you're suffering from nausea, however, and need help finding an appetite and keeping food down, J1 is the strain for you.
The Lineage of J1
A cross between beloved strains Skunk #1 and Jack Herer, this strain is categorized by it's super uplifting, super cerebral high. A 50/50 indica-sativa blend, J1's high-energy buzz is easy to mistake for a pure sativa.
If you're hoping to start growing J1, you can expect to experience relatively tall plants with seriously heavy yields. When buds are ready to harvest, they'll be large and bright green, with a generous frosting that will have you wondering if it just snowed. Indoor growers might see a harvest-ready plant in about two months, while outdoor growers can expect to wait a little longer-- think a September harvest time, if you live in a more temperate or northern area. The combination of shorter grow time, high yield, and excellent bud makes this strain a great choice in growing for personal use.
