Jolly Rancher Strain Review
With a name like Jolly Rancher, this hybrid strain is tempting for its flavor alone. And, in that regard, it totally lives up to the hype, although we can pretty confidently say that it also happens to be one of the most satisfying highs you will ever get from cannabis, if your preferences lean indica. Let’s dive into this strain and give you all of the information you could ever ask for. That way, you can know whether or not Jolly Rancher is the sweet, candied choice you’ve been missing out on.
Some Good ol’ “Jolly” Facts About Jolly Rancher
Jolly Rancher is actually a pretty rare strain on the hemp marketplace. It can also go by the name “Grape Jolly Rancher”. The exact ratio of indica to sativa is something breeders disagree on quite a lot, but it’s somewhere in the 75/25 area. It offers around 20% THC, and 1% CBD. Because this strain is such a rarity, there’s a lot we don’t know about it. In fact, we don’t even know its parent strains.
How Do Jolly Rancher Buds Look?
Actually, Jolly Rancher buds are really beautiful. The emerald, green hue is gorgeous, and the nugs themselves are small and tightly packed. Undertones of light purple add even more aesthetic appeal, along with small amber hairs and a nice coating of lavender trichome crystals that give the buds a sugar-frosted vibe.
Growing Jolly Rancher
You won’t find a ton of info out there about growing this strain, since once again, it’s a rare one. Still, we do know that it can be grown indoors or outdoors but prefers outdoors. This is a plant that loves the sun and would rather be grown in a dry and warm climate. Breeders say that it is really easy to grow, and it’s resistant to mold and mildew issues that plague a variety of other strains. It has a flowering time of 8-9 weeks.
Jolly Rancher’s Lip-Smacking Flavor
Of course, this strain is named after the classic candy, and whoever did come up with the name knew what they were talking about. This is a strain that has that sticky and sweet candy taste, with bold notes of berries – heavy on the juicy grapes. You will find yourself licking your lips as the sugary taste is deeply satisfying, and there is just a touch of sourness on the exhale. Aroma-wise, experience that sweet berry candy, with more sourness than you get from the flavor, and earthy undertones.
What Makes Jolly Rancher Strain a Must-Have?
Jolly Rancher is a strain you’ll definitely want to reach for if you love those strong indica-dominant hybrids that bring you into a state of total relaxation. A fantastic chillout strain, it’s a great way to recover from a long and stressful workday, and a lot of people love using it for sleep.
Pretty much anyone who’s been dealing with stress or an otherwise “off” mood can really get a lot out of Jolly Rancher, since it’s wonderful for turning off those negative thoughts and providing intense euphoric bliss. Its body high also means the ability to get nice and cozy so you can maximize relaxation time. The strain is said to be particularly good at alleviating pain, cramps, and spasms, too, so if you’re someone who deals with chronic pain, this might be a good option to reach for.
What Does Jolly Rancher’s High Feel Like?
Of course, when describing any strain, it’s all about the “high” – right? Well, Jolly Rancher’s high is pretty much everything an indica-dominant hybrid lover could ever ask for. It begins with a sensation of pure happiness and bliss, where nothing could possibly bring you down. This sensation kicks in within just a couple of minutes, so you won’t be waiting long to feel its profound effect on your mood.
While the dreamy uplifting effect cancels out any bad vibes, a warm and tingly feeling starts to run down the spine and spread through the limbs, becoming heavier and heavier over the course of an hour or so. This soon becomes a full-on body high that, in high doses, can induce couchlock, and we mean that in a good way. You will likely lose all desire to do anything but curl up with your favorite pillow on the couch, or even go to bed if you’re already sleepy.
This strain can definitely be sedating, which’s why we recommend that you pay attention to how much you indulge. If you’re looking for a sedative-like experience, then by all means, go heavy-handed. Otherwise, a little can go a long way if you’re just looking to mellow out and watch your favorite shows on the couch after a long day.
Tasty and Uplifting – What More Could You Ask For?
Although super rare, Jolly Rancher is really a no-brainer for anyone looking to destress and chill out during the later part of the day or night. It’s an easygoing, good-vibes hybrid that can give you a feeling of tranquility no matter how stressful your day has become. And, of course, it tastes like jolly ranchers, which’s a reason to try it in and of itself.
