About the Jet Fuel Strain
When you hear the name you undoubtedly think about a rush of power and flying, but be prepared, it’s not an instant high. The Jet Fuel Strain takes a few moments, so be ready to taxi to take off when using it. This hybrid strain is also known as G6 and is a cross between several Diesel strains, specifically the Aspen OG and High Country, with hints of the OG Kush and Sour Diesel. The effect is very much a cerebral high.
- Sativa: 60%
- Indica: 40%

Jet Fuel Strain and the Senses
Hmmm, what could this flavor be like? Yes, well, that seems obvious, but it does have the fuel flavor and aroma, that’s pretty strong. When grinding or breaking it up you’ll get an added hint of pine that’s reminiscent of the OG Kush aroma. The smoke is while smooth, it’s also thick and diesel-y, so you may want to have some water to wash it down with. It’s also a very distinctive and permeating smell, so keep that in mind if you prefer more discretion from nearby noses.
- Earthy, Musky
- Chemical: gasoline, diesel
- Wood: pine
- Citrus – lemony
These medium sized nugs are more elongated than round, and are typical of the sativa flowers. They are light, airy or fluffy, and bend out from their stems. The leaves are brownish green, more olive than green, and the pistils are typically orange, but have been known to have the darker red ones. When cured, the buds are sticky with the trichomes which glisten like wet glitter.
Possible Side Effects
Depending on your experience and sensitivities, you may experience the typical dry mouth (cotton mouth) and or dry eyes. As always when partaking, remain hydrated by drinking plenty of water and that will help counter these side effects. Novices or those with heightened sensitivity may experience some of the more rarely reported side effects.
- Dry mouth
- Dry eyes
Jet Fuel Strain Uses
The Jet Fuel Strain delivers an invigorating head high that can be beneficial to medical marijuana consumers seeking relief from those types of ailments. It’s very popular for those practicing relaxation techniques such as yoga or mindfulness as it truly focuses the user on the hear and now, and being “in the moment”. This practice has been used to help relieve:
- Obsessive, recursive thinking
- Stress, tension, PTSD
- Pain – note, this strain is not indicated for chronic pain but has been shown to have some effects as a result of the reduction in stress and depression associated with chronic pain, or pain caused by stress.
- Loss of Appetite
Because this strain is a strong cerebral high that focuses thoughts and attention, it might not be the best choice for those who suffering from anxiety or acute depression, or have paranoia tendencies.
Jet Fuel Effect
The best way to describe the effect is to go with the name. Think of being on a jet, taxing, then taking off. There’s the delay to take off, but it’s a short one, then the rush of lift off. But then you reach your cruising altitude and can fully appreciate the calming, relaxing, effects that improves creativity and deep thinking, such as problem solving, and focus while floating in air.
Just as with takeoff in an airplane, you may feel some initial pressure as the high surges over, especially around the upper head and face. But that’s really the only physical effect of this strain. Whether you’re looking for a little help with energy, or need a bit of a creative boost in quieter settings, the cognitive effects of the Jet Fuel strain definitely stimulate the deeper thinking and problem solving mindsets, or improve ongoing interactions and reduction in social anxiety inhibitions. It’s a happy high.
- Deep thinking
Growing the Jet Fuel Strain
If you choose to grow this line you can get seeds or clones fairly readily. It’s not the easiest strain to grow, though. Since it requires close monitoring of temperature and humidity, it’s best suited for indoor growers. The plants will require additional maintenance to ensure proper airflow and light access, that otherwise would be blocked by the larger top leaves. Despite all the effort, it’s still a moderate to low yield strain that requires curing post-harvest in a highly controlled environment for temperature and humidity, to ensure proper taste, consistency, and potency.
- Indoor growing recommended
- High maintenance climate control
- Requires trimming for air flow and light
- Flowering: 9-10 weeks indoors
- Yield: 37g (1.3oz) per square foot
- Post-Harvest Curing
The Jet Fuel strain isn’t for the light of heart, it make take a few minutes to get going, but when it does, you get that strong rush that can be a bit concerning. It is energizing and euphoric, but the takeoff can be a bit tough, and the cruising altitude maintains the surge. Think of it like taking a few red bulls. This is definitely not a strain to take to calm down and just chill.
