Platinum Jack 13
A stunning indica that no doubt derives its name partly from its lighter-than-light green hues, Platinum Jack 13 offers yet another reason for patients to get their rec-bearing selves down to Releaf in Anaheim immediately. Dense and intense, with an aroma like strawberry cough drops and a crisp finish so minty it numbs the tongue, the strain is unadulterated heaven and Exhibit No. 1 for why the L.A. City Council needs to pull its head out its collective ass right now: Why should Orange County patients have all the fun? The buds are curved and tapered like baby bananas, if bananas were composed of sticky nugs that break apart into perfect, serving-sized portions. Crazy thing about Platinum Jack 13: For an indica, it produces a noticeably energetic, “talky” stone—as electric and tingly as any pure sativa we’ve sampled. Not that it’s a bad high—far from it: You’ll be amazed at how thoroughly alive you’ll feel, and at how long the stone lasts. But PJ 13 is anything but couch-potato pot. As such, it’s a terrific home remedy if you’re in need of medicine but still have work to do: Partake when feeling the pangs of PMS, mood disorders, PTSD or muscle spasms. We would not, however, recommend it as a remedy for insomnia.
