Illinois strains with 30% or more total THC levels are harder to come by these days. The first half of 2020, I had my pick of strain surpassing the 30% threshold. Now, maybe two or three per month will pop up on my local dispensary menus. And when they do appear, they don’t last on the menus for long. Twice, Jenny Kush with 30% plus THC level was listed on my local menu, but I was not able to visit the dispensary in time to snag an eighth. Until a couple weeks ago.
While visiting the great folks at Dispensary 33, I happen to arrive at the same time as a new drop of Aerīz products, which included an eighth of Jenny Kush that tested at 32.6% total THC. The well-known hybrid strain was named in memory of Jenny Monson, a cannabis bred activist who passed away in 2013. Rare Dankness Seeds originally bred the strain with all proceeds going toward the Jenny Kush Foundation, a charity established to help support her children.
The strain is a cross between Amnesia Haze and Rare Dankness #2 are believed to have parented Jenny Kush. The leading terpenes included beta-myrcene and beta-caryophyllene. Minor terpenes included linalool, alpha-pinene, alpha-humulene, and limonene.
At the end of my Jenny Kush concentrate review, I wrote, “After reviewing the Jenny Kush budder, it is not a matter of if I review the Jenny Kush flower but rather when I review it.” Well, the review took a bit longer than expected. I could have picked up several samples, but because Jenny Kush’s THC level consistently reached 30%, so I waited. And I’m glad I did. This batch was about as good as I could ask for.
The eighth contained two large Christmas tree-shaped buds and a couple of tinier buds to even the weight. The buds were light green with darker green leaves and bright orange pistils flaring everywhere.
The aroma and flavor, as I knew they would be, were way more dynamic than the budder. The flower delivered a sweeter and less earthy aroma and flavor, with background notes of citrus, pine, and a creamy kush. The exhale had a heavier taste of cream kush.
Though I am not usually a fan of hybrid strains, Jenny Kush had one of those smooth pleasant and happy cerebral highs that put me in a good mood day or night. The euphoric cerebral high was eventually matched with a smooth body buzz that built in relaxation but did not become too heavy for couchlock. The body buzz from this 30% plus flower was as good or better than the Jenny Kush concentrate.
Overall, I medicated with Jenny Kush afternoons, evenings, and nights whenever I wanted a mental pick-me-up or a smooth body buzz that helped with inflammation. The strain was also great for listening to music and binging television. Pretty much any chilled activity.
