Like its namesake liquor, Jager has a pronounced aroma of black licorice. This strain has a surprisingly smooth smoke for an indica; on the exhale, this smoke has a herbal, tobacco-like flavor, along with some sweet licorice that lingers on the palate. Notably, Jager offers no grape flavors, despite its often entirely purple flowers — this is because the pigments that determine the leaves’ color do not have a corresponding effect on their aroma.
Jager hits hard and fast, often making its effects known before smokers have finished savoring its rich smoke. Users typically detect a tingle that spreads from the neck down through the core and limbs. Any muscular tension may gradually dissipate as deep breathing happens more deeply and easily. These effects progress toward a full body high that may make some want to stretch out on the closest possible couch. Despite its relaxing properties though, Jager has enough sativa potency to confer a clearheaded energy; this makes the bud useful for mentally engaging pursuits like reading, studying, or plowing through administrative work. Alternatively, these acute but relaxed vibes can be a great way to stimulate conversation or camaraderie among friends. Eventually, Jager’s high progresses towards sleepiness — and while the alcoholic namesake often renders its consumers unconscious, this bud’s knockout effect is more subtle, without the subsequent hangover and embarrassing loss of control. Jager is best enjoyed in the early evening or right before bed. Finally, its effects are said to be long-lasting, even for cannabis veterans.
Jager’s relaxing properties is worth sampling by medical cannabis patients. The strain can numb deep-seated aches and pains, whether temporary or chronic. It can also take care of minor annoyances like headaches or nausea. Psychologically speaking, Jager may temporarily blunt the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. In large enough doses, it can also soothe insomniacs to sleep. Because it is unlikely to bring about overly cerebral thinking or paranoia, Jager is a good option for users who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
