Dispensary: Fad Bud’s Weed Shop

Rating: 4 leaves

We all have our favorite strains.  Even if its just our own flavor of the month. When the owner of Fat Bud’s Weed Shop told me that he was really into Galactic Jack, I had to try it.  I was not disappointed.

Galactic Jack buds are super green and dense with a medium sticky feel to them.  The strain has a pungent earthy and piney fragrance which will permeate an entire room.  I left a half gram baggie of the buds in my apartment, went out for a swim, and came back to find that my apartment smelled amazing.  The taste of the bud matches its scent with a piney sweet menthol and minty flavor. I vaped the bud and found the vape to be extra smooth, pleasant with a solid OG flavor. 

The strain is a sativa leaning hybrid which is very evident at the outset. Users will notice an immediate soothing effect on the head and stomach (I had both a headache and stomach ache until I vaped), with an uplifting, energized and clarifying mindset. I found that I was doing my household chores efficiently and happily.  That is until I was tasked with dividing and organizing pills. This task left me with an overwhelming sense of fear—fear of numbers.  Once that task was over, I slipped into a euphoric day dreamy feeling and enjoyed the remainder of my night.    

Despite my rough encounter with counting pills, I would recommend Galactic Jack to both experienced and novice users. To novice users: stay away from any tasks which you may find too challenging or unpleasant, but do not fear the strain itself. Galactic Jack is a full flavored and positive strain which should be experienced as part of your cannabis experience and education. I will come back to Galactic Jack—a bit more prepared the next time—but there definitely will be a next time.
