Jack 47 Fast Version is the feminized sativa-dominant (75/25) strain that has quickly become a favorite of many cannabis growers and connoisseurs. This variety is a hybrid of the iconic Jack 47 (Jack Herer x AK-47), namely its autoflowering variety and the clone of its original photoperiod version. Jack Herer and AK-47 made a perfect sativa hybrid with a lot to offer. Its ultra-fast flowering time, high THC (up to 24%), and CBD (up to 2%) content as well as a unique terpene profile make it a popular choice for both recreational and medicinal users.
Genetics, History, and Achievements
The history of Jack 47 Fast Version's ancestors is a bit of a mystery, but it is a well-known fact that it was created by crossing two of the most popular and potent strains in the cannabis world. Jack Herer (Haze x Northern Lights #5 x Shiva Skunk) is a hybrid known for its uplifting and energetic effects. AK-47 is a cross of Colombian, Mexican, Thai, and Afghan landraces resulting in the legendary, award-winning variety still popular for its potent and long-lasting effects. Jack 47 Fast Version is a worthy descendant of its predecessors and was also awarded 3rd prize as the Best Sativa for indoor growing at the Copa del Rey, Bogotá, Colombia, 2016.
Jack 47 Fast Version has a spectacular appearance with large colas and dense buds covered in a thick layer of sticky trichomes. The flowers are bright green with orange and yellow pistils. The plant itself is quite tall and can reach heights of 1.5-2 meters. This strain is also known for its heavy resin production, making it a great choice for those looking to make concentrates or extracts.
When it comes to cultivating Jack 47 Fast Version, it is a relatively easy-to-grow strain. It can be successfully grown both indoors and outdoors, although it tends to do best in a warm and dry climate. For indoor growing, it is recommended to use HPS lamps or full spectrum LED lights and to keep the temperature and relative humidity within 20-30 °C and 40-60% respectively. Adequate ventilation is also important, as this strain can be vulnerable to mold and mildew. When grown outdoors, we recommend using a plot filled with organic soil or 15-20 liter pots to give the plant's root system plenty of space to grow. Water regularly but not excessively as this strain can be sensitive to overwatering.
Cultivated properly, Jack 47 Fast Version has the potential to produce some impressive yields. Indoors, it can yield up to 600 grams per square meter after a flowering period of just 7-8 weeks, while outdoor growers can expect up to 700 grams per plant.
Terpene Profile, Flavor, and Aroma
One of the outstanding features of Jack 47 Fast Version is its unique terpene profile. Its basic organic chemical compounds are myrcene, humulene, and phellandrene, giving it a distinctly sweet, pungent, and earthy aroma with notes of pine and citrus. The flavor is similar, with a sweet and fruity taste accented by hints of mango, lemon, grapefruit, mandarin, orange, and spicy herbs.
Speaking of the effects of Jack 47 Fast Version, it is a sativa in every puff and action. Well-rounded, smooth, and a little bit harsh smoke on the exhale will deliver balanced and uplifting effects. The high starts with a burst of energy and creativity, making it a great choice for social situations or creative endeavors. As the high continues, users may feel a sense of relaxation and calm, making it a great strain for unwinding or having a good talkative and giggling time in the company of friends after a long busy day.
The strain is known to be effective in treating a variety of conditions, including inflammation, chronic pain, anxiety, stress, and depression. It may also be useful for those with appetite disorders, as it can stimulate hunger.
