Don’t let the name fool you as hyperbole, 9 lb Hammer is an almost entirely Indica cannabis strain that delivers the weight its name carries. For those unaware, Indica strains pack a punch and can sap all the energy you’ve got in favor of leaving you resting blissfully on the nearest couch, bed, or Papasan.
Created by JinxProof Genetics, 9 lb Hammer is a triple cross of Goo Berry, Hells OG, and Jack the Ripper cannabis strains. With THC levels reaching as high as 23%, it’s no surprise that many first-time smokers have had their legs cut out from under them after a pair of lungs filled with this strain’s unctuous smoke.
The whole experience has been described as being hit in the head with, you guessed it, a 9 lb hammer. The resulting high begins with a euphoric and tingling cerebral high, reminiscent of Looney Tunes cartoon depictions. What follows is a sensational period of relaxation that wanes into sleepiness. As a result, this strain is not meant for the early-bird smoker. Save it for the evening. Many use this strain for chronic pain relief and to combat the symptoms associated with stress and anxiety.
The plant itself has an incredible appearance with large billowy nugs accented with purple-tipped calyxes and an abundant forest of orange hairs and projecting trichomes. Flavors and aromas are a swirling mix of berry and sweet citrus.
Considered a low-maintenance strain, 9 lb Hammer will do novice to advanced growers well. Give this plant the attention it deserves and you’ll receive a generous bounty of 14 or more ounces per plant after a 9-week flowering period.
