This Black Jack is a NSM flower that was bought from Native Green Wellness in Hensley. My bud tender was educated and prompt with my order. I allowed him to pick my strain from the 2 value priced items and Mr Sinks was well educated on the two. Black Jack is a 70% Indica dominate cross of Jack Herer x Black Domina. The label states 10-19-20 was the harvest date and the test date of 11-6-20. The THC content is labeled 23.9% and 0.07% CBD.
This one eighth of a once of flower is presenting in a lime green coloration with dark orange pistils. The sample is made of 2 large oblong shaped flowers and a couple few little fingernail size buds I would call popcorn. NGW is still using these zippered squeeze sacks. This specific sample was least effected by its packaging as any I have got from NGW so far. These buds, as you can see in the shots have flat spots on the flower caused from the packing. AMCO High Opinion of 8 of 10. It be great if they switched packaging styles after their second location opens in Little Rock.
The nose on this flower strikes me as cherry cola every time. This sample also has hints of myrcene skunk with a lemon peal scent. This scent profile has been consistent through the 3 crops of this strain I have reviewed from this cultivation farm. AMCO High Opinion of 10 because its a vacation for the nose.
As per the label, that charts the dates harvested vs the date tested and that gives me a rough cure time of of 28ish days. I find that under my microscope that the outside the flowers are a little less populated with tricomb heads than the inner shots of the flower. This may be from the trimming process or the packaging. The heads that are present show to be clouded and even a few matured to ambering bulbous head coloration. AMCO High Opinion of 10 for cure.
Hats off to Natural State Med on consistency. Their strain tastes just as it smells. Its flavors are reminiscent of the last 2 crops of this strain from this cultivation that I have reviewed. This crop is less stout in the terp Cedrene whitch gives it that ceder tree like taste and smell but its still present just not as much as the April or August Reviews from 2020. There is a slightly lemon skunk exhale that is pleasing as well. AMCO High Opinion of 10.
I find this strain is able to relieve my muscle pain by a point. It also reduced my PTSD symptoms by 3 or more points this morning. I was a ball of nerves and half way through the joint, they seem to calm rapidly. My negative attitude turned around by curbing the worry that is so prevalent in my mind. AMCO High Opinion of 10 of 10.
