Strain review by Jedi Frost: Green Jade

SEPTEMBER 2016 GROW/REVIEW

Strain: Green Jade 

Grower Name: Jedi Frost 

Medium: Living Soil 

Nutrients: Nutrient Teas, and a good base soil. 

Lights type and schedule (indoor): 20-4 

Days from Seed: 85 

Harvest Points: This strain took a bit longer to mature. I actually waited until the pistil factory really slowed down before i even looked at the trics. I took some early samples but I personally liked the strain more the longer it stayed on. I left it on a good while. 85 days with CMH lights and I can tell you that that these lights speeds things along but green jade (working name) really wanted to grow. 

Dry Yield (grams): 71 grams 

Growth Comments: Growth was great, right out the gate. It could of used more Nitrogen but this round i didn’t push them like I normally do and that was probably a good thing. It flourished nicely, and when it was in flowering it really filled in. I probably should of gave it a little more love while it was vegging but tried to make up for it in flower. 

Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): Smell…Oh yes, the smell. It originally smelled like a tester strain i grew out and I could swear it was it until harvest. At first it was a really musky smell, like Goldstone. It is a very unique musk that i’ve only smelled before once and again that was the goldstone. It started to get a sweeter more floral smell later in flower. 

Very dense buds, by the way and simple to trim. Unfortunately, 0I lost the pictures of the first harvest that i got the colas from. I basically left the rest of the plant to finish up another 2 weeks and it came out amazing! 

The Smell: Haze, Diesel, Liquorice, Floral, Pine, Skunk, Musk, Spice, Incense 

The Smoke: The best part! 

My new favourite smoke. This smoke reminded me a lot of my amber review. 

When lit, you first notice the extreme floral incense. It too has a opium tasting twang to it. I love how when you inhale, it taste really hashy. It will make fill your lungs because it produces such a rich smoke. Once you exhale, we get a very floral incense. IF you breath it out your nose, it burns like you just hit some concentrate. The terps are strong and to be respected. They will slow your roll if you try to take to big of a hit. You will cough as every square inch competes to stick to your lungs.

The High: Green Jade is some hashy smoke. Smells really skunky/ earthy, musky. Smooth as heck. It such a hard high to describe because thought almost doesn’t exist. It really makes my face and eyes feel pressure. My head feels like its spinning and being pushed around by gravity. The frequency is very low if that makes any sense. Whereas some strains make me vibrate very high like the resonance sound you make from a crystal glass as you rub your finger around it. This one vibrates very strong and low, it shuts down the imagination and really put you into the now and in the moment. A good way to explain it is your thinking slows way down but your hearing and other input sensors are more heightened. It hard not to just zone out and stare. It is some serious Indica. It keeps getting stronger and stronger. Its a creeper too. I could def sleep very well with this, pretty potent stuff.

If you are a med user, describe briefly your health conditions and how this strain affects them 
Green Jade is really good if you have pain, have anxiety or would like to sleep. 

When really stressed out, it will calm me down without making having to smoke so much I become a zombie. 

However, it can and sometimes will make you a zombie if smoked in excess. Very strong Meds!

===============================================

FEBRUARY 2017 GROW/REVIEW

Medium: 1 part aeration, 1 part homemade compost, 1 part peat moss.

Nutrients: Buildasoil pack this is what I use to mix in my soil. It is water only amendments, I did 2 cups every 5 gallons of base mix.

Lights type and schedule (indoor): (3) Phillips Argo 315 watt CMH lights, vertically stacked, naked bulbs- no reflectors. I over power my CMH lights with a digital ballast running it to 375 watts a piece. (Kids do not do this at home) I use a solistek matrix digital ballast that has a splitter so I can run two lights off of it. I set the ballast for 750 watts and it delivers 375 watts to both lights. I also run a third light with the recommended ballist that is 315 watts, magnetic type. 20 on 4 off

Days from Seed: 65-75 selectively harvested

Harvest Points: Early harvested buds don’t have the terps that later cuts will give.

My favourite stage to harvest the buds is when she completely stops throwing pistils. Some of the lowers will have some so I harvest the tops.

If you harvest too late the terps will fade a bit. The high is still good early or late but when it is harvested properly the terps will be at their peak.

If your the person who likes their banana a little green so it has a bit of time to ripen you may want to take a cut when the pistils are at 10-15 percent white. That should be as early as I would go.

Dry Yield (grams): 35-40 average out of 4 plants.

Growth Comments: This plant can get a little mad if you over feed it with N but I bet she would enjoy more blooming nutes but I kinda didn’t push her and let her do her thing.

She was always very green and didn’t require any special attention. So it is an easy to grow plant for beginners.

The first time I grew them out they were huge but it was hot this round in the garden and they suffered some yeild. But she is made to get large and in the right environment she will do just that.

Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): Smell is very musky floral with a slight citrus twang.

I had grown 12 of them to date so I have a good feel of what she truly tastes and smells like.

On the stalk she is a little subdued because the smell is a very musky and a bit floral/pineish. Their was a pheno from last time that was grapefruit tasting but it still had that really musky sweet skunk tone too. It was a lovely pheno.

85+ percent of them turn very purple or reddish.

Even the white phenos smell similar. Pretty consistent genetics. It is pretty focused and doesn’t give too many variation.

The Smell: Sandalwood, Haze, Earthy, Floral, Pine, Grapefruit, Hash, Skunk, Citrus, Musk, Spice, Leather, Incense, Woody

The Smoke: She smokes very smoothly, yet she is very thick and will choke you up if you take a big enough hit. The smoke clings to your lungs, if you do cough, you will be thankful. Lol

Most of the phenos go down very hashy like. You can taste the musk and spice/hash then when you exhaule you get incense/floral or a musky,spicy woodsey kinda citrus/pine taste. Very rich flavour. I imagine it would go good with some wine and bloody steak!

Method of Delivery: Bong, Joint

8 Taste Exhale (Rate your impression of the taste from 1-10 unpleasant-delicious)

10 – smooth Smoke ability (Rate the smoke ability of the sample from 1-10 harsh-smooth)

7 Smoke expansion (Rate how the smoke expands in the lungs from 1-10 stable-expander)

The High: The high is a energetic couch-lock. Almost like a speedball of sorts. It does warm your face and ears and relaxes your body but the initial high hits fast and just kinda wraps it blanket around you. It does give me energy too though because it gets me motivated because it works very well for stress.

Address final questions immediately after effects have worn off.

 The Dosage (number of hits taken to reach desired effects): Half a bowl

Final Comments: Green Jade has some really unbelievable phenos. This was my favourite plant for the longest. I personally liked the incense/floral opium flavoured pheno. Very nice! I also loved the musky spicy grapefruit one as well.

This plant is a full flavoured Indica. She will rock you I rate her a 8.5 but I’m sure if I grew her again I could grow her out better and get her to be 10!
