a powerful sativa that makes me focused and alleviates anxiety. Its hunger-inducing, but striving for food is moderate.

The kush is above average. The taste makes me crazy - its sweet, peppery, and skunky at the same time. CJ leaves a strong smell though, so I try to smoke it outdoors.

This particular cannabis comes with 18-22% thc which is an average level for experienced stoners. BUT check the thc amount each time cause some breeders offer Candy Jack with 27% thc which is quite a lot. Overdosing is a common thing with this pot.

I expected standard skunk high when this shit hit me like a wreckingball… some serious weed right there, its got the taste, the kick, and the trip goes for hours. Its got that periods of untrontrolled laughter that I loooveee and it doesnt make me too sleepy like some potent strains can do

Allbuds and Leafly also speak high…no pun intended…of Candy Jack and I totally agree on every count. The taste is a cross from fruity to pine flavor, depends on the flower I guess… Yesterday I couldnt stop laughing, today Im reading reviews…guess theres no staying still while on CJ

Maybe its just me but candy jack doesn’t seem like anything special even after smoking a whole blunt on my own. It gets you high, but theres no burst of happiness or laughter that should be there cause of the skunk lineage… Not a worthy descendant…

fruity taste on the first drag but then the smoke gets heavier as trip intensifies.
