Critical Jack Strain History
Critical Jack originated with the Dinafem team of breeders in Spain who set out to bring together the best genetics of Skunk #1, Northern Lights, and Haze. To do this, they chose to cross the legendary Jack Herer with the highly acclaimed Critical Plus. The result is a high-powered hybrid known for stimulating the user with tremendous amounts of energy. Critical Jack is a select hybrid with an astonishing reputation earned for her yield, potency, and taste. CJ is also known for the incredible extractions made from her delicious THC enriched trichomes.
Critical Jack buds bear a resemblance to both of its parent strains. Cinnamon colored pistils cover the cone-shaped buds that are dense and full of shining white trichomes. Light green leaves cover the whorling calyxes.
Critical Jack Aroma
Buds taste like sweet roasted peaches with honeycomb and vanilla. The smell is the perfect blend of tropical fruit and a spicy pepper aroma. The post-grind fragrance is similar to a grenadine syrup. A hash taste on the inhale leaves a spicy and sweet exotic aftertaste. The smoke is smooth and perfect for those looking for a strain that will not burn up their throat and cause coughing.
Heavy pepper and citrus aromas come together with slightly earthy notes. An undeniable Haze flavor fills in the background. CJ’s principal terpenes are terpinolene, beta-caryophyllene, ocimene.
Critical Jack Cannabinoids

Users can expect to feel great for about two hours and experience an uplifting sensation in the head with a delayed and muted effect in the body. Its THC levels reach 18% to 21%, making it potent but not dangerously debilitating.
Critical Jack cannabis strain induces a functional, cerebral high that uplifts mood promotes focus and creative thinking. CJ is enjoyed during the morning or daytime due to its energetic and confidence-building effects. Physically, the buzz starts with the hallmark sativa orbital/eye/head pressure, a slightly buzzing body, and an uptick in both mood and heart rate. Recreational users will find that the high is long-lasting and very sociable. Critical Jack’s indica traits work well with its sativa qualities. As the cerebral flight slowly descends, you’ll forget your troubles and feel extremely calm. The high is very stealth due to the lack of physical effects like red eyes.
Growing Critical Jack Seeds
Critical Jack feminized seeds produce fast flowering and heavy yielding plants that even new cannabis growers will have no difficulty with.

Critical Jack has a wispy structure like the original Jack Herer, with light green leaves that become purple when nighttime temperatures get cold. Outdoor or greenhouse growing is best if you want to push the limit and see how big this plant can get. Plants often reach a tremendous height of up to 10 feet tall. Outdoors, Critical Jack can produce up to 42 ounces/plant, with a harvest time between late September to early October.
