Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 60% Sativa / 40% Indica THC: 15% – 18%, CBD: 1%
This delightful cross of Space Queen and Orange Skunk hits THC levels of 18%, putting it in the upper tier of potency. The sativa/indica ratio is 60:40, a combination that creates an upbeat, euphoric head high with bursts of energy and creativity. CBD levels are very low, less than 1%, so this strain isn’t very effective at treating seizures. But it is good at treating anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and pain (including migraines). Jillybean has a strong, sweet taste and a smell of oranges and mangoes. It has a shiny, frosted appearance created by a dense layer of trichomes, with flecks of green and gold. The flavor, as the name suggests, is similar to jelly beans. Dry mouth is common, while dry eyes, paranoia, and anxiety are more limited. Jillybean is a great daytime strain, ideal for getting things done and staying positive. The high is bubbly and cerebral, though the indica genes deliver limited body effects.
Tasting of mango and pineapple jellybeans, Jillybean is an Indica-dominant hybrid that comes from TGA Subcool Seeds. It’s a cross of their Space Queen male and Orange Skunk, which came from a grower named Jill. It exhibits more cerebral stimulation than most Indica hybrids, while still retaining some bodily effects.
Initially, users feel a pleasant rush of euphoria that fills them with energy and lifts their moods. This is accompanied by a very mild, soothing body high. The strain’s potent cerebral effects from its Sativa lineage can stimulate giddiness and giggles, especially in less experienced users. More experienced users may find the strain boosts creativity and the desire to socialize. Negative effects include cotton mouth and dry eyes. Some paranoia, headaches, and dizziness may also occur with higher doses.
Jillybean is suitable for use any time of day. Its mood-elevating and energizing effects are helpful in dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression. This strain can ease aches and pains, such as menstrual cramps/pain, but not severe pain. Some patients also use it to relieve migraines or insomnia.
The strain does well both indoors and out and is suitable for the Sea of Green and Screen of Green growing methods. It needs to be topped only once to bloom into a nice short bush and can be grown easily by any grower. Flowering at eight to nine weeks, this strain produces nearly 300 grams per square meter and has a THC count of up to 18%.
Jillybean has buds that are nugget-like, and tend to be smaller than average. They hold a tight and dense bud structure, more typical of indica than sativa. Its leaves are light green, made to appear lighter by a heavy coating of trichomes. All this resin makes buds sticky, and difficult to break apart without a grinder. When buds are broken, however, they give off a sweet and smooth lemon scent. Intact buds also have Kush-like notes of dank earth and musk, balancing out the citrus profile. When smoked, Lemon Kush is notably harsh and expands within the lungs, often inducing coughing. The aftertaste is tangy and citrusy, but without the ammonia or diesel taste that comes with other lemon-inflected strains.
D-Limonene is the chemical compound — or terpene — responsible for the lemony scent and taste of Jillybean. D-limonene occurs naturally in citrus fruits and is used industrially to enhance the fragrance of lotions and perfumes. This terpene may also have some tangible medical benefits — in animals and test tube trials, d-limonene was found to have anti-inflammatory and even cancer-fighting properties (although these results were not replicated in a later test among women with breast cancer). D-limonene may also help to relieve acid reflux.
