Jack Frost cannabis strain is a Balanced Hybrid strain that has gained popularity over the years as much as its namesake. This strain is named after one of America’s most foremost and legendary activists known as Jack Herer. Jack, who is also the author of “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.” is best remembered for his tireless fights and activism for the rights that cannabis lovers now enjoy.
It is a highly relaxing yet uplifting and pain relieving strain sparking both creativity and energy with the absence of heavy Indica effects.
After over 5 years of intensive research, Jack Frost was developed by the geneticists at Goldenseeds. It is a cross breed of Jack Herer Sativa strain, along with Northern Lights #5 Indica and White Widow Hybrid. The parents have a complex genetic history, which all adds to its overall outlandish but pleasant character that so many have fallen in love with.
Jack Frost is a Balanced Hybrid 50/50 Indica/Sativa with a good amount of THC coming in at approximately 22.6%.
After analysis of the Jack Frost cannabis strain, high levels of Myrcene were discovered. When combined with THC, Myrcene helps to increase the effects of relaxation and sedation. Its earthy green pungency comes from Caryophyllene, Humulene, and A-Pinene.
Pinene can be seen as the terpene with the largest proportion in this strain, little wonder it is the dominant flavor and is where this strain gets its woody, piney scent. Patients suffering from depression, arthritis, insomnia have been able to find aid in Linalool terpene. Terpineol helps for relaxation giving you that couch lock effect. It also contains antibiotic and antioxidant properties.
Myrcene is an earthy and musky terpene found in mangoes, hops, and cannabis. It’s often associated with potential sedative effects and is believed to enhance the effects of cannabinoids like THC, contributing to the entourage effect.
Caryophyllene is a spicy and peppery terpene found in black pepper, cloves, and cannabis. It’s unique among terpenes as it also acts as a cannabinoid by binding to CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, contributing to potential anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.
Humulene is a woody, earthy terpene commonly found in hops, basil, and cannabis. It’s known for its potential anti-inflammatory and appetite-suppressant properties, making it a popular choice for wellness products.
Pinene is a piney and fresh terpene found in pine trees, rosemary, and cannabis. It’s believed to have potential bronchodilator effects, making it useful for respiratory conditions, and is also associated with potential memory-enhancing properties.
Linalool is a floral-scented terpene found in lavender and several cannabis strains. It’s associated with potential calming and relaxing effects, making it popular in aromatherapy and skincare products.
Terpineol is a terpene commonly found in cannabis as well as other plants like pine trees. It is known for its floral aroma and is believed to have potential sedative and relaxing effects when consumed.
