Some strains give us ample warning of their intense power, and Jet Fuel is one of those strains.  Known for its intense, ever-growing high, it’s a force to be reckoned with.  Let’s examine Jet Fuel more closely, because it’s one that beginners will want to be a bit careful with in particular.

What is Jet Fuel?

When you hear the name, you’ll undoubtedly think about a rush of adrenaline that happens when flying, but be prepared, since 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 Aspen OG and High Country, with hints of OG Kush and Sour Diesel. The effect is very much a cerebral high.  It’s a 60% sativa-dominant hybrid, with about 16-20% THC and below 1% CBD.

These medium-sized nugs are more elongated than round, and are typical of the sativa flowers.  They are light, airy and fluffy, and bend out from their stems.  The leaves are brownish-green, like a rich and deep olive, and the pistils are typically orange, but have been known to be a darker red shade as well.  When cured, the buds are sticky with trichomes that glisten like wet glitter.

What Does Jet Fuel Taste and Smell Like?

Hmmm, what could this flavor be like?  Well, that seems obvious based on its name, and it certainly does have the fuel flavor and aroma – a pretty pungent fuel note, in fact.  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 nice and smooth, and it’s also thick and diesel-like, 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.  A light twist of lemon offers a nice contract to the earthy, fuel-like notes.

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 really being “in the moment”.

This practice has been used to help relieve:

  • Obsessive, recursive thinking
  • Stress, tension, PTSD
  • Depression
  • ADD/ADHD
  • 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.

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 just have paranoia tendencies.

What are Jet Fuel’s Effects?

The Jet Fuel strain delivers an invigorating head high that can be beneficial to medical marijuana consumers seeking relief from obsessive thought patterns, negativity, irritability, anxiety or just general bad mood.  It’s very popular for those practicing relaxation techniques such as yoga or mindfulness, as it truly focuses the user on the here and now.  Because this strain delivers 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 even have paranoia tendencies.

The best way to describe the effect is to go with the name.  Think of being on a jet, taxiing at first, and then taking off.  There’s a notable delay to take off, but it’s a short one, and then the sweeping rush of lift off takes over.  Once you reach your cruising altitude, you can fully appreciate the calming, relaxing effects that improve creativity and deep thinking, such as problem solving, and you’ll be able to sit back 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 simply need a bit of a creative boost in quieter settings, the cognitive effects of the Jet Fuel strain definitely stimulate a fresh perspective, and also can improve ongoing interactions while reducing your social anxiety inhibitions. It’s a happy high.

Possible Side Effects of the Jet Fuel Cannabis Strain

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
  • Paranoia
  • Dizziness
  • Anxiety

Growing the Jet Fuel Cannabis 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

Jet Fuel: Prepare for Takeoff

The Jet Fuel strain isn’t for the light of heart, and although it make take a few minutes to get going, once it does, you’ll get that strong rush that can be a bit concerning for newbies.  It’s energizing and euphoric, but prepare for a bumpy takeoff, as the cruising altitude maintains the surge.  Think of it like taking a few red bulls, to get an idea of what you’ll be in for.  At the end of the day, this is definitely not a strain to take if you want to calm down and just chill.
