Smoke Report: Royal Jack Autoflowering

Royal Jack Automatic is a faster version of the original JackA Herer cannabis strain - thanks to a small addition of ruderalis genetics - with the high and the flavor remaining true to the original. Her THC content hovers around 16%.

She is a very easy to grow plant, but today, we thought we would focus on her smoke. We sampled a few grams of Royal Jack Automatic to give you an infight into how she fairs in a joint! So here is our smoke report:

ROYAL JACK AUTOMATIC’S BAG APPEAL

As soon as we opened the curing jar, we noticed a fresh, peppery aroma with a hazey quality that was very close to the standard Jack Herer we've sampled in the past. If anything, it was just slightly milder and a tad more herbal.

The flowers were dense, considering they came from an autoflowering strain, but definitely not rock-hard. Appearance-wise, they more than met our personal standards for quality: plump, round and green, with touches of gold flecks and just enough visible crystals to give them a little sparkle.

Sticky to the touch, but not overly so, they broke up nicely and released a second burst of subtle fragrance when we crumbled the buds by hand before the grind. The final consistency was perfect for either a bowl or rolling a spliff. Since we had papers on hand, we rolled up our Royal Jack Automatic and prepared to light up.

THE TASTE OF ROYAL JACK AUTOMATIC

The smoke tasted almost exactly like Jack Herer: piney and earthy on the inhale and sweet, hashy and resinous on the exhale. A few of us coughed once or twice, but it was nothing serious. We've tried a lot of autoflowering strains in the past year or two, so our expectations were modest. But, we were pleasantly surprised by this one's full-bodied and complex flavour profile. Most of us could still taste Royal Jack Automatic very faintly almost a half hour later.

We like to go all out when it comes to curing weed, so the Royal Jack Automatic that we smoked felt very smooth and soft on the palate.

THE EFFECTS OF ROYAL JACK AUTOMATIC

By the time we took the third hit of Royal Jack Automatic, most of us felt a noticeable cerebral buzz that started with a tingling sensation across the nose and forehead. The high strengthened over the next 20 to 30 minutes into a full-blown euphoric high that had us laughing at anything and everything. It was fairly social and creative. It even helped us brainstorm some ideas for our next smoke report!

ROYAL JACK AUTOMATIC: FUN, HAPPY SMOKING

Royal Jack Automatic wasn't quite as potent as an original Jack Herer, but it was more functional. It would be a great smoke for anyone who wants a nice happy feeling without too much energy. Frequent smokers might be able to use this for daytime smoke, if they try it out on a weekend first and indulge in moderation before or during work. The only downside was it gave us all a bad case of cottonmouth. Make sure you have plenty of your favorite beverage on hand if you decide to smoke Royal Jack Automatic. Other than that, this is a very pleasant strain that we'd recommend to anyone looking for a mid-range sativa, especially if they're in a hurry to harvest some nice looking buds.
