This tongue-and-cheek review series started with a strain I’d never tried before: Bio Jesus. I had been reviewing so many “Work Sativa” strains I ran out of a stronger nighttime indica. On the menu, the genetically balanced hybrid was listed as an indica and clocked in at 31.57% THC.
There seems to be some mystery about Bio Jesus’ lineage. Cresco Labs procured the seeds from Denver Relief Farms, and the strain was reportedly a cross between Bio Diesel and Gumbo. I picked up an eighth from Sunnyside in Champaign. The light green buds, covered in trichrome, were dense and had light orange hairs. The strain definitely boasted a diesel aroma. It also possessed light floral and tropical fruit fragrances. The taste followed the smell but with an added spicy pine flavor on the exhale.
Bio Jesus is not for novice smokers. It packs a punch, even for veteran smokers with high tolerances. The high was a quick, heavy hitter that started with a cerebral haze. But the surprise bonus for me was that the numbing body effects were equal to the robust high. The muscle relaxation, an almost floating feeling, was perfect for my cramping and chronic pain. Those two characteristics were exactly what I had been looking for in a nighttime strain.
Even though Bio Jesus had me with its head high and total body buzz, I also had an easier time falling asleep after use each night. And one of those nights, though I usually have appetite suppression issues and rarely get the munchies, I ate more at dinner than I had eaten in the previous three days. I’m very please Cresco Labs continued this powerful strain and made it available in Illinois. I think it’s the perfect strain to kick off “Flower Power: 30% plus” reviews.
