Cracked Out Jack
Why this exuberant sativa from Tree Top Collective in Garden Grove doesn’t have “lemon” in its name is a mystery—it’s the most citrusy strain we’ve sampled since Lemon Drop. Lemon is what you smell when you pop the jar, lemon is what you taste when you exhale. Even the spade-shaped buds further the lemon motif through the thick, golden hairs that entangle each crystal-coated nug. But no matter: Two hits off Cracked Out Jack, and lemons will be the furthest thing from your blissed-out mind. While some sativa strains fill you with nervous energy, the single most notable quality to the stone of Cracked Out Jack is it imbues you with a sensation of happiness. It’s laughing weed of the kind you want to consume while watching a comedy or one of those so-bad-it’s-good monster flicks on Syfy. The stone starts as a tingling sensation in the brain, and quickly expands to give even the sternest personality the giggling fits. That’s exactly the right ingredient for patients wrestling with depression, be it clinical depression or the down-in-the-dumps kind stemming from such serious diseases as cancer, HIV/AIDS or MS.
