Being in California, I’ve had the opportunity to to enjoy both of these strains on plenty of occasions. They are definitely two of my favorites, albeit for different reasons. I’ve come to expect an energetic, racy experience with the Green Crack strain, and a mild, euphoric effect from Jack Herer.
Being so familiar with the Cracker Jack strain’s parents, I was excited to see how well their characteristics would mesh together. Interestingly enough, it was exactly what I would expect.
The aroma of the Cracker Jack strain was nearly the same floral scent that I’ve come to expect from the best batches of Green Crack. However, the Jack Herer influence made itself known as soon I could taste the vapor
As for its effects, the Cracker Jack strain gave me a slight surge of energy that great in the morning. However, it was not nearly as racy as the Green Crack strain.
In fact, the Jack Herer seemed to help counter this effect; so much so that I find the Cracker Jack strain to be helpful when I’m in need of soothing anxiety relief.
Patients who prefer a noticeable body melt when they medicate would be unlikely to declare the Cracker Jack strain as their first choice. However, it could be ideal for those who gravitate towards strains with a more uplifting head high. It may be most beneficial those who suffer from depression, schizophrenia, OCD, or anxiety.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica / 30% Sativa
THC: 20% – 27%, CBD: 1%
Granddaddy Purple, also known as “Grand Daddy Purple” or “GDP” or “Grand Daddy Purps,” is a heavy indica dominant strain created through crossing the classic Big Bud X Purple Urkle strains. This flavorful bud is said to be the grandfather of all weed strains, packing timeless full-bodied effects and an infamous flavor that will leave you begging for more. The Granddaddy Purple high hits you first with a cerebral rush that leaves you feeling completely euphoric although with a slight numbing effect. A slightly psychedelic effect will slowly wash over your mind, leaving it floating through trippy visions as your body falls into a deep sense of relaxation and peace. With effects like these and a powerful 20-27% THC level and almost 1% average CBD level, Granddaddy Purple is the perfect bud for killing the effects of chronic pain, muscle spasms, insomnia, and appetite loss. This bud has a super sweet grape flavor that has a heavily pungent harsh aftertaste that can overwhelm some. The aroma is pretty powerful with hints of sweet grape and berry accented by a heavy spicy pungency that’s pretty harsh in itself, too. Granddaddy Purple buds are strikingly purple, spattered with bright fiery orange hairs and coated in sweet sticky…

Type of High
Purple Kush Feminized seeds where engineered in California in the late nineties as a crossing between Purple Afghan and Hindu Kush. Purple Kush is a 100% indica strain which results in a short and dense marijuana plant with compact but heavy buds. The beautiful purple leaves full of resin makes is a wonderful marijuana plant to grow. A good strain to grow outdoor in, especially in Mediterranean climates.
Purple Kush Feminized smell a bit dank, just like other Kush strains do. While smoking Purple Kush you will get into a state of total relaxation, great for people with sleep deprivation to get a good night rest.
Afghan Hawaiian is a sativa dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa) strain created as a potent cross between the hugely popular UK Cheese X Lavender strains. This dank bud boasts a moderately high THC level ranging from 18-22% on average and a myriad of both indica and sativa effects. Users describe the high as having an immediately uplifting onset that leaves you aroused, creative, and slightly dizzy. You’ll feel happy and euphoric before falling into a state of deep relaxation without loss of functionality. Due to these potent effects, Afghan Hawaiian is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as neurological disorders and spasticity as well as muscle spasms and chronic pain. Afghan Hawaiian buds have small dense round popcorn-shaped neon green nugs with light gold undertones and translucent amber hairs.
Cali Kush must have been a no-brainer when it came time to name this strain given the popularity of Kush varieties in The Golden State. Its buds are large and dense with few leaves and not many pistils. The flowers will be light green shot through with icy blue and packed with trichomes throughout. Cali Kush buds have a fruity citrus aroma with the darker coffee notes of a kush. Spicier tones and the coffee kushness are more apparent in the taste. The indica-dominant variation of this hybrid has been more popular, but a sativa-dominant version has also been spotted.
High Yield, Fast Finish… Jack Herer is the ultimate performer, a dashing mix of heritage and knowledge. The result? A big harvest sativa that became an instant classic when it was introduced.
We took our time to develop this new school strain. The quest was to breed a plant that combined the greatest characteristics of the greatest plants. It took time – years – to get the strain just the way we wanted it, but the result was worth it. A femme fatale that packs a punch.
The strong sativa genetics of this plant mean that it can climb and those side branches will reach for the space to support its bounty of long and well formed buds. Indoor growers with limited space may look to pruning and bending methods to control the growth; more information is available from our Jacky White grow report. A prinicpal characteristic that appeals to those with indoor set ups is Jacky White’s reputation for stability, meaning consistency with results.
medicinla marijuana is the best friend of the outdoor gardener, hardy and low maintenance. Give it some space and moderate sunshine and it will reward you with a plant that strikes a fine pose, making it a favorite with sativa aficionados in southern regions of the world.
Connoisseurs in northern climes are in luck too, because this plant also thrives in more moderate climates. It may not give you the optimum yields but the skinny gene makes Jacky White mold resistant and its natural hardiness means you’ll be smoking by Halloween. The reward is tasty too – a sunshine buzz to smooth your way into that northern winter.
An immediate hit when it first came out, this plant’s reputation still burns strong. That’s because: for a fast growing, high yielding plant, the effects are just so damn good… An overwhelming experience served on a layer of citrus ‘haze’.
Smoke this and you will have a smile for the rest of the day. It is the creative’s choice with rushes of energy and inspiration making it perfect for heightened focus.
With so many different types of haze put together it is no wonder why Chocolope is known to predominantly affect the head with a tranquil mind-warp. It is a stable Sativa master-piece that is easy to grow, produces well, and hits noticeably smooth.
It’s important to note that this strain doesn’t actually have that strong of a chocolate stench. It is much more of a sweet grapefruit aroma with only slight undertones of chocolate.
This makes sense, considering that the Chocolate Thai strain doesn’t have the most obvious chocolate aroma either.
It seemed to calm the nerves instantly, while providing a decent amount of uplifting energy. It quickly became one of our favorite Sativa strains to medicate with before a long day of work. It tends to make the day more enjoyable.
The Chocolope strain may benefit those suffering from depression, chronic stress, fatigue and more.

Additional Strain Info
The cream of the crops and perhaps the most exquisite ganja you will ever encounter; this strain ranks as the most awarded variety in the history of harvest festivals. Nine awards and counting would be the pinnacle of recognition for any strain, yet Jack Herer manages to go a step further and bears the distinction of being distributed under prescription by Dutch pharmacies as a recognized variety of medicinal-grade cannabis.
Sensi’s champagne of strains is named in honour of Jack Herer, author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes. Through tireless activism and his landmark book, Jack Herer can take most of the credit for reminding the world that cannabis in all its forms has always been one of humankind’s most valuable resources, and that we can literally save the planet with hemp!
The sublime blend of tropical Sativa high and monstrous Indica resin production captured in Jack Herer must be seen and sampled to be believed. At their peak, buds are so thickly smothered with clear trichomes that they appear sugar-frosted or sparkling with dew-drops. This crystal-coating extends to spear-leaves, fan leaves and even to Jack’s stems and stalks.
Plants from seed show favourable variation, due to Jack Herer’s complex background and delicate balance right at the cusp of Sativa and Indica. Enhanced features from both sides of the family are strongly evident and are expressed in different combinations, allowing growers to select mother plants tailored to their circumstances and tastes.
Three of Jack’s four main phenotypes are heavily Sativa-influenced while the fourth has a growth pattern leaning towards Indica 0 fast-flowering and relatively compact with a dense, expansive, rounded bud structure that’s suited to cash-cropping. Jack’s Sativa phenotypes can also produce a good per-meter or per-plant yield when cultivated skilfully, though it is rare for these crops to be sold commercially. Most growers who have watched their succulent, super-sized calyxes swell and mature will be hesitant to sell such buds, and the best Jack Herer is often passed around a select circle of friends – an example of one of those things that money just can’t buy.
The trait common to all Jack Herer phenotypes is a dazzling double-edged potency – a stratospheric cerebral high underpinned by a breathtaking body-buzz with seismic power. Smokers should be prepared to feel the earth shake beneath their feet – which can be a very pleasant feeling when your head is firmly in the clouds.
Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 80% Sativa / 20% Indica
Ghost Train Haze is one of the most intense strains that has ever been introduced to the marijuana universe. This strain is not for the novice Toker; after all, Ghost Train Haze was named the “Most Potent Strain on earth” by High Times magazine in 2012. This strain derives from Ghost OG & Neville’s wreck, creating an insane 27% THC level. GTH is mainly sativa (80:20 sativa/indica ratio), so if you are a novice smoker or suffer from anxiety, it is best that you steer clear of this wicked strain. Heavy smoking of GTH can lead to an almost psychedelic feel that may induce paranoia. The patients who tend to opt for Ghost Train Haze are those who suffer from depression or those who are looking for an overall great time. If taken in small doses, GTH can easily send you into laughing fits and stimulate your creative mind. The aroma of this strain is a sweet blend of sour, citrus & pine that is very pungent. With an abundance of trichomes and hairs, GTH basically looks as dank as it claims to be.
Ghost Train Haze cannabis strain is a potent Sativa dominant hybrid bred by Rare Dankness. It took the 1st place winner of 2014 High Times Cannabis Cup US in Sativa category and 2nd place of 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup Medical Sativa category. The buds are dense, light green in color and drenched in trichomes, appearing almost white. Ghost Train Haze is very potent and was selected by High Times to represent Strongest Strains on Earth.
