Indica – El Jefe
Indica – El Jefe primarily indica strain by Rare Dankness Seeds is a 70/30 cross comprised of Abusive OG and Rare Dankness #1. Its full-bodied, powerful effects paired with its wonderfully classic aromas definitely make it one to try if ever you are lucky enough to find it. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you’ll be utterly blissful to be dominated by El Jefe.
With THC ranging between 22% and 25%, it’s no wonder that this strain is called “the Boss.” This ultra-strong breed is brightly colored with orange hairs and sticky white trichomes that fully envelop the dark shades of green that make up these dense buds. The aromas of this strain are hashy, with earthy undertones and a slight pungency. However, the smells of El Jefe can be deceiving as the flavor palate couldn’t be further from those traits. The taste is a bold blend of spicy lemon and rich pine, sure to engage your senses.
El Jefe is known for soothing the mind and giving the smoker relief from daily woes, and is quite the opposite of what you might think from the name. It may be a strain that lays down the law, but it isn’t one that will necessarily overtake you. This calming high thrives in both mind and body and is primarily buzzy in the limbs. This creates a numbing feeling that might get you a little bit couch locked. Medicinal uses far outweigh its recreational uses, however after a long day at work who wouldn’t want to unwind with something this enjoyable either way?
As mentioned before this strain has a lot of medical uses and because it is highly sedative without actually putting you to sleep, it is fairly beneficial for those who suffer from chronic pain. Whether it’s caused by injury or disease, finding the relief you need from pain and muscle tension can be a godsend. For those who suffer from cramps, muscle spasms, eye pressure, or restless leg syndrome, higher doses of El Jefe can stave off even the worst of symptoms. Additional uses include the treatment of anorexia, lack of appetite, depression, anxiety, and ADHD.
With anything called El Jefe you would assume that it could manage itself in many conditions, right? Well, this plant reinforces that idea with its ability to grow healthy indoors and out. Though the yields depend on condition, you can guarantee yourself at least an average harvest with a flowering time of 9 to 10 weeks indoors and mid-October outdoors. It isn’t necessarily an easy plant, but with its resistance to many molds and common diseases, she’s not a hard one to keep happy either.
If you enjoy a nice wind-down strain that isn’t going to knock you off your feet, this is a good one to try. Its genetics alone should tell you that is has a host of medicinal purposes, though that fact isn’t its only plus. She offers brilliant flavor with a classic hashy, kush scent with spicy notes and an enjoyable lemony aftertaste.
