J1 Strain – Everything You Need to Know & More!
OUJ12… Oh, you J1, too? Jack One Piece sounds like it could be a mobster’s or a pirate’s name, but it’s actually a nickname for J1 marijuana strain – also sometimes just called Jack One strain. The J1 weed strain is a 70% sativa/30% indica hybrid with a jacked-up THC level of 18-24%; under the right conditions some growth has even reached 25% THC. J1 weed gives you a happy head high, alleviating stress and depression, with some bodily relaxation, as well as boosting your appetite and busting up your pain. Some folks find J1 to be an excellent wake-and-bake strain; like a ganja-coffeezilla, it will give you a rush of energy that will last several hours, before your buzz shifts down to funky town and you are ready to be chillin’ like a villain (maybe with a snack for stoner munchies reasons). Obviously, being mostly sativa, you’d want to avoid toking, vaping, dabbing or ingesting J1 strain just before bed, when you want to get some rest right away.
Jack One, when rolled into a joint or packed into a weed pipe has a sweet-and-sour fruity taste and citrusy smell with a dank, earthy undertone, like drinking a glass of lemonade after a summer rain – only you’re getting high while doing so. It’s pretty pungent, so it’s best smoked where there’s good ventilation, like when you’re outside unless you know how to cover up weed smell.
So, we’ve told you a little bit about J1, but there’s more to explain about Jack One strain. Let’s look at where it’s from, what it does for you, where you can get it and how to grow it. Are you ready? Are you jacked?

The birth of sativa-heavy hybrid Jack 1 marijuana strain has nothing to do with magic beans, grouchy giants, or bodacious beanstalks, what it does have to do with is pairing indica-leaning Skunk #1 and Jack Herer strongly sativa cannabis varieties, the parental pot plants of J1. The Skunk #1’s 15-22% THC percentage and Jack Herer’s 18-23% THC, explains the 18-24% J1 strain THC content – it was bred for a good buzz. What’s interesting is that Jack Herer is itself bred from Skunk #1 and Haze, so that means the lineage of J1 is Skunk #1 plus Haze (Jack Herer) plus Skunk #1 – in other words, it is two parts Skunk #1 indica hybrid and 1 part Haze sativa hybrid. It’s not at all unusual in ganja growing to cross indicas (or indica hybrids) and sativas (or sativa hybrids) and get offspring that lean one way or another, just like some human kids may take more after mom or dad’s side of the family; genetics is a crapshoot sometimes – even with cannabis.
When it comes to crossbreeding cannabis, you could, hypothetically, pair mostly sativa Jack One strain with something like Thin Mint Cookies indica hybrid strain and end up with Mint J1 OG strain – or something – and it could be either an indica or sativa hybrid depending on things like the randomness of genetics or even the growing – in fact, even the exact same weed strain can be varied in sativa vs indica effects under differing growing conditions, that’s called a phenotype. Now, insofar as we could find – and we did look thoroughly, there is no Mint J1 OG strain; but you could make your own variety of weed just by pairing J1 weed with some other strain – that’s precisely how new weed strains are made. Just like with humans, some pot couplings produce better offspring than others, so your results may vary.
If you want to know what strain is like J1, here are actually a few strains with similarities to Jack One Piece, or J1 weed: Girl Scout Cookies, Gorilla Glue #4, Trainwreck, Agent Orange and Strawberry Cough – all of these being sativa-dominant hybrid weed strains with similarly mentally uplifting yet bodily relaxing effects and respectable amounts of THC.
