Strain Review: J1 Crumble
J1 is a sativa-dominant hybrid, a cross between two classic sativas: Skunk #1 and Jack Herer. J1 is quickly gaining popularity due to its strong, uplifting, and incredibly clear-headed high.
While I typically use crumble on top of herb bowls, I choose J1 for my introduction to dabbing.
Because I had been told how debilitating dabs could be, I expected to take a few dabs and then be knocked out for the rest of the day. However, the J1 was so incredibly energizing and clear headed, I didn’t realize how high I was until I tried to put the top and straw of a water bottle down the smoke chamber of my bong.
After a couple dabs of J1, I was feeling giggly and sassy. Everything was a hilarious joke, but I was also feeling hilarious myself. While the high was overall very positive, the only negative moments I encountered were ones of intense paranoia.
In a situation that would usually make me a little hesitant or confused, I felt completely paranoid and unbearably anxious.
To better complete my experience of J1, I tried a small amount of wax in an herb bowl instead of dabbing. In a pipe with flower, the wax acted as a “creeper.”
When the herb high began to decrease, the wax kicked in and leveled the high back out. I enjoyed about 2 to 4 hours of pure bliss and euphoria. However as a dab, the J1 was an incredibly clear, uplifting and energizing high… despite the moments of doubt.
Appearance/Texture: The color was a deep yellow, typical of most crumbles. The crumble was incredibly dense and not very sticky, like some waxes can be.
Flavor: The flavor was so pure and sweet. It was citrusy and reminded me of candy as it resonated delightfully in the back of my throat.
Aroma: The aroma of the crumble itself was less citrusy, but more floral, like lavender, enhancing the potent sweet smell.
Effect: An incredibly cerebral high with little to no body high. The high is incredibly clear and made me energetic and creative.
Medical Applicability: J1 could be helpful in relieving stress, depression, and
fatigue. However, avoid if you’re prone to paranoia or anxiety.
Overall Impressions: J1 was the most clear-headed high I’ve ever experienced. That being said, I wouldn’t recommend it for trying to feel heavily inebriated, but rather for a motivating midday smoke.
