The Sour Jack strain sounds like a cereal that came out in the 1990s. The strain should not be underestimated as the name does not speak to the potency of the strain. The strain comes from two strains that you have likely heard about if you have any experience with marijuana. 

Strains in today’s world are so impressive due to the generations bred by cannabis companies. Federal legalization will help create a boom of new strains but it looks like it might be a few years before this happens. Below will delve into what you need to know about the Sour Jack weed strain

Is Sour Jack an Indica or Sativa?

Sour Jack is a 70/30 Sativa-dominant of two legends in Sour Diesel and Jack Herer. The strain can be used in the morning as it is used to energize a consumer. You can expect a happy high with this strain which is always a plus.

Sour Diesel is the ultimate wake and bake strain for so many smokers. Smokers should be careful though as this strain can be quite potent at 26 percent THC. You might find that this famous strain motivates you to get more done during the day. 

Jack Herer was made famous in the coffee shops of Amsterdam. The strain can help you complete your daily agenda in an efficient manner. You will find that this strain can help ward off fatigue. 

Figuring out which strains can help you stay motivated and make you more productive can be important. Marijuana can be used as a tool to help you relax but also help you get things done. Two strains with similar effects are Bruce Banner #3 and Lemon Tree. 

Sour Jack Strain Yield 

Sour Jack can be grown indoors or outdoors. Indoors you can expect around 10 to 11 ounces per plant. Outdoors you can expect to harvest up to 20 ounces when grown perfectly. 

Finding quality seeds can be done online with seed banks but it is easier to opt to head to the dispensary. Setting a grow up for success is about getting into the right growing routine.

Another factor is the research that you do on a strain to make sure you set the growing environment for optimal growth. Strains that are similar to grow are Golden Goat and Monster Cookies

Flowering Phase Length Of The Sour Jack Pot Strain 

The flowering phase lasts between 10 and 11 weeks. The flowering time is relatively long so concealing the smell could present a challenge. Growing the strain can be difficult so experienced growers should be the only ones to take this on. 

The strain has a neon green color along with curly orange hairs. The trichomes on the buds have a yellow/orange tint. 

Growing indoors can allow an individual to grow strains that thrive in identical conditions. Some strains need a semi-arid environment while others do better in a very humid environment. Watering patterns also matter as too much water can stunt the growth of certain strains.

Sour Jack Strain THC Content

Sour Jack comes in at a reasonable 22 percent THC. The high will hit you almost immediately and lasts a long time when compared to other strains. Watch your stress fade away when you smoke this potent strain. 

Flavor And Aroma Of The Sour Jack Cannabis Strain 

Sour Jack has the flavor of diesel, lemon, and citrus. The aroma has a tropical note when smoked. The terpene profile is made up of Limonene, Caryophyllene, and Valencene. 

Limonene is going to have the taste and aroma of lemon/citrus. Expect this terpene to help you reduce anxiety/stress while also giving you a burst of energy. Strains that contain this terpene are Lemon Diesel and Durban Poison.

Caryophyllene is a terpene that you will instantly recognize due to its spicy flavor. The relief that it brings people can come in the form of pain relief or a reduction in inflammation. Red Headed Stranger and Ice Cream Cake both contain this powerful terpene. 

Valencene is going to smell and taste almost identically to oranges. This terpene can help reduce inflammation. Jungle Cake and Wedding Cake both contain this terpene. 

Sour Jack Strain Seeds

Crop King Seeds and Pacific Seed Bank both have these seeds available. You want to avoid ordering from seed banks as it is illegal to receive cannabis seeds in the mail. Getting cuttings might be your best bet which can be done by visiting a nursery in your area. 

Price Of Sour Jack Marijuana 

Sour Jack is going to be relatively affordable due to the availability of its parent strains. 1/8th of an ounce is only going to run you $35 to $40. The full ounce is going to be around $230 but things like taxes need to be factored in. The area that you live in along with the inventory of a dispensary can impact price. Of course, if it is legal then growing would be the most affordable option.
