Welcome back to the red bench, it’s time for another Red Bench Review…

I want to thank you for joining us this week – we’re going to look at a strain called Jack F1. This Sativa-dominant strain – which is 75% Sativa and 25% Indica – is a combination of three strains. Those strains are Skunk #1, Northern Lights and Mexican Haze – which are all good strains on their own, but what is it like when you put them all together?

The version we’re looking at this week comes from Cru Cannabis, and this is a 26.37% THC variety. I am really curious what is that going to be like? So let’s unbox this one… let’s get into it and do some close-ups and take a look inside the box…

Alright, here’s the box from Cru Cannabis with the Jack F1 in it. There’s a little warning on the side here… on the back there is information – it tells us this is a little more active than relaxed and it’s going to give us cerebral invigoration. I want cerebral invigoration – absolutely! Now let’s look at the top – there’s a bit of information on the label, which is where we found out that it has 26.37% THC – thumbs up on that!

Okay, let’s open this box up. As you can see, it’s got a little package inside… there’s the package…

…on the back there it says Cru Cannabis. That looks like an interesting package of cannabis. I would like to get into this and find out what it smells like… and taste it.

Alright let’s cut this bag open, and take a look inside… let’s find out what this smells like.

[Jon cuts open the bag]

It immediately hit me with a pine smell, very pine… that is… wow, that’s just predominantly a pine smell. Let’s find out if there’s anything more in here… any more smells. Let’s dump this out on the tray and take a look. That is a nice looking eighth. There a couple nice nugs there… some smalls… some really smalls. Let’s weigh this out, do some close-ups and we’ll be right back.

Alright you can see from the close-up that is a very dense-looking nug there… let’s get into it! We’re gonna take this little guy and cut it up to get a feel for the cure. My initial reaction is that this is a little dry… but I’m cutting it up and the cure in this is pretty nice… it gets a little sticky as you get into it. The aromas are coming up… as I mentioned that is a bit pine – a lot pine. It’s also got an astringent kind of smell… sort of medicinal. It reminds me a bit of the strain called Trainwreck. If you’re familiar with Trainwreck, imagine that smell and that’s what we’ve got.

Let’s put this in the bong and see how it smokes because that’s what it really comes down to… right?!?

[Jon takes a bong rip]

There’s some fruity and floral kind of flavorings in there… both are very sweet… it tastes much different than the smell that I was smelling ahead of time. I don’t think I tasted any pine in there whatsoever… so, that’s really unusual. Let’s take a second rip and really taste the flavors.

[Jon takes a second rip]

Hmm… there’s lemon in there… okay lemon – that’s very predominant. There’s a hint of the pine down there… just a little bit of it coming in. Maybe I’m imagining it because I smelled it so strongly, but I got a hint of the pine in there… very interesting stuff.

The effects are just starting to trickle into my mind. I can feel them right around the edges – it’s very up here. [Jon makes motions around his head] Let’s give this ten minutes and see where this goes… we’ll be back.

[ten minutes later – condition: a Sativa stone]

Oh my – I transitioned so fast from feeling really straight to being stoned in moments. Wow! That was a ride but now it’s all settled down… I am stoned… I am really stoned. This is a good herb! That just took about three or four hits.

The high right now is just perfect for what I would call “brainstorming herb”. This is the kind of herb – if I’m just getting into a creative project and I don’t exactly know what pieces I’m putting together yet and I just want to get a whole bunch of ideas going… this is the herb for it!

Right now my brain is just hopping all over the place instead of like just focusing in as a Sativa sometimes does. This one has got my brain just popping like that [Jon makes popping motions in the air around his head] and I’m enjoying it!

Oh my, oh my… this is some fun herb! If you want to hang out with some friends and just let the ideas flow… just let them go, this would be a fun herb for that.

You know what? I’m gonna take another bong rip and I’m gonna sit down at the computer and I’m gonna do some writing… I don’t know where that adventure will go, but this is some good herb to get into it… I’m gonna use this for some writing, yup!

Okay let’s take a last bong rip (for now) and check out the smoke.

[Jon takes a bong rip]

Oh man… my word… hold on, I’m running ahead of myself. My brain started moving into a space as I was taking that hit… I almost forgot we were filming. My brain was like… “okay what’s that idea?!?” [Jon stares off into space]

Let me tell you about that smoke – this smoke is very thick, kind of oily… the kind of thing that gunks up your throat a little bit. I coughed a lot off camera – holy moly, it’s a crazy smoke. So you’re gonna want to drink a lot of water and get hydrated for this one. [Jon coughs] See! It’s got a little tickle in my throat going.

Thank you so much for joining us this week… this is a fun herb. I would totally recommend the Jack F1 from Cru Cannabis – good stuff!
