There is nothing I like better than a good “Star Wars” reference, which is part of why I was stoked when this week’s sample from Prohibition Herb arrived. It’s called Jedi Sun, and please rest assured, there are no Jedi mind tricks at play here. The Force is strong with this one. (Be warned: There are a whole lot of these stupid ass movie references below. You’re very welcome.)
Anyway, Jedi Sun is a hybrid strain created by crossing Sunshine Kush with Jedi Kush. It clocks in at about 19 percent THC, and the terpene profile contains B-Myrcene, Terpinolene, and Ocimene. (That will matter to some of you. For others, the word terpene might as well be in Greek. If you’re of the latter and are curious, look it up. It’s fascinating.)
You might be familiar with Sunshine Kush, a sativa-dominant strain known for makin’ ya feel just fine, especially when you’re down in the dumps (hence the Sunshine name). The strain has a heavy citrus scent to it, which I was glad to find had crossed over from Sunshine Kush into its offspring. The citrus smell is noticeable from the time I popped open the lid.
I didn’t notice much of the skunky diesel fuel smell from the Jedi Kush, which to me was a good thing. There was a bit of pine in there, which I’m guessing came from the Jedi side of things, but that was about all I could detect. And it doesn’t really matter anyway, because I really liked that Jedi Sun smells like warm, citrus-y sunshine and not like a Death Star.
But, while Jedi Sun may not have taken on the Jedi Kush smell, I certainly tell by the effects who Jedi Sun’s father was. You ever smoke a strain and you’re rendered awake as hell while simultaneously high as hell? Welcome to my life on Jedi Sun.
I smoked a bowl of this strain in the middle of the afternoon on a weekend, and the taste was pleasant (although the smoke was kinda heavy now that I think about it) so I guess I expected it to only slightly knock me on my ass. But, I can tell you that after I smoked it, I was pretty useless for a hot minute.
But it wasn’t like I was couch-locked or anything. I was just so wrapped up in this dreamy, ethereal thought sequence in my head that I didn’t know which way was up. I was making connections between things I’d never made before and I felt like all of my thoughts were streaming out of my brain like little ribbons of smoke. It was a happy, dreamy feeling, one that I almost never get. I tend to get giggly, or productive, or I get couch-locked and sleepy. Dreamy, floating, AND awake is a rarity.
After the dreamy feeling finally subsided, I was left feeling like I could conquer the world, or at least have the power (unlimited power!) to do so. Seems Jedi Sun likes to taper off from that dreamy feeling with a hefty smattering of energy, presumably from the Sunshine Kush.
I don’t think I could smoke Jedi Sun and expect to get any real work done, but I think if I spent some time with this strain and a journal, I’d probably come up with some brilliant Yoda-level ideas, provided I could still write coherently.
This is a good strain, you guys – it’s not a trap! – so you should check it out. Just think of all the obnoxious Darth Sidious references you’ll get to make if you keep it on hand. That alone would be worth it.
