Named after the largest planet in the solar system, which itself is named after the greatest of all Roman gods (their equivalent of the Greek god known as Zeus), the Jupiter hemp strain is as fearsome, impressive, and memorable as its name suggests.
The heritage of this Indica-dominant varietal is somewhat uncertain, but part of its parentage is an OG Kush hybrid and the other is believed to be an Indica-dominant strain.
Jupiter CBD Hemp Flowers
High-grade Jupiter hemp flowers cost around $7 to $10 per gram. They are dense, somewhat large, and tinged with red hairs. The plants produce relatively large yields, making Jupiter a popular strain among US cultivators.
Jupiter’s CBD content is around 15%, although this will vary slightly depending on the phenotype.
Jupiter Aroma and Flavors
Jupiter’s terpene profile delivers flavors of lime, lemon, wood, and earth. The most dominant flavors, however, are gassy and sour, akin to strains like Sour Space Candy, albeit without the overriding sweetness.
There’s an herbal quality as well, which is more detectable in the taste than the aroma. It’s like a strong oregano or mint, albeit with slightly more edge and bitterness.
These aromas linger long after you’ve cracked the seal, while the flavors will remain on your tongue and at the back of your throat for many minutes after smoking.
Benefits of Jupiter Hemp Flowers
The effects of Jupiter begin in the body as a wave of relaxation washes over you, removing stress and anxiety. As the effects transition into the cerebral realm, you’ll feel uplifted and energetic; focused and creative. It’s not quite a couch-lock strain, but it can become one in higher doses and with inexperienced users.
More notably, Jupiter is a strong appetite stimulant, much more so than other high CBD hemp strains. The munchies usually kick-in long before the sedating effects have faded, so keep some snacks on standby.
Some users have praised Jupiter hemp flowers for their painkilling properties, noting how the strain helps with everything from persistent headaches and migraines to joint problems and chronic back pain.
Closing Thoughts: Jupiter Hemp Flowers
Earthy, overpowering, and relaxing—Jupiter is a memorable strain deserving of its celestial name. It leans heavily toward the Indica side of things and delivers an instant hit that will soothe your mind and relax your body.
It’s not ideally suited for inexperienced smokers. The heavy Indica effects may prove to be too much for low-tolerance users, but they could be just what you’re looking for if your tolerance is high and you need something strong to break those barriers down.
