9 Pound Hammer is an indica created by JinxProof Genetics. It is a three-way cross between Jack the Ripper, Hell's Angel OG and fruity Gooberry. These dense buds are coated in resin, offering sweet grape and lime flavours. 9 Pound Hammer hosts a terpene profile abundant in myrcene, pinene, and caryophyllene with THC levels ranging between 17-21%. Effects can be heavy and long-lasting, making this strain useful for pain and stress relief. 

Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has measured 9 Pound Hammer's potency at between 14% and 23% THC. When properly cured, 9 Pound Hammer has a strong fruity aroma with a tropical inflexion. Like parent strain Jack the Ripper, it is redolent of citrus and grape. Meanwhile, breaking the buds apart gives off a strong incense-like odour courtesy of this strain's Afghani landrace lineage. When combusted in a bowl or a joint, 9 Pound Hammer burns with a remarkably smooth smoke that tastes woodsy and piney with a hint of lime on the exhale. Notably, this strain has a pronounced grape flavour.

This strain is named 9 Pound Hammer for a reason: almost immediately, it hits users over the head with its heavy-duty sedation. Deep breathing may come more easily and muscular tension may dissipate. This sensation soon progresses into a full-body high that may leave smokers feeling floaty and disoriented. In addition to these somatic effects, 9 Pound Hammer imparts some subtle mental stimulation -- while it may not trigger intense, cerebral thinking, it can alter perception, making sounds or colours take on a new intensity. If the dosage is increased, this strain is liable to cause couch-lock, sapping energy and motivation along with any lingering pain and stress. As a result, 9 Pound Hammer is best enjoyed at night when its strong sedative effects can easily transition into sleep.

9 Pound Hammer can be of great value to medical cannabis patients as well. It can provide temporary relief from the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Its sedative, almost narcotic properties can relieve aches and pains of all kinds. Meanwhile, its ability to provoke hunger can help those who have lost their appetites due to medications or treatments like chemotherapy. As noted, 9 Pound Hammer is of particular interest to people who suffer from insomnia; it can lull smokers into a deep and refreshing sleep. Because it rarely brings about the kind of recursive thinking that leads to paranoia, this strain is a good option for people who suffer from frequent panic or anxiety.

Not a strain to be underestimated, 9 Pound Hammer is an ideal choice for weekend or evening relaxation. Although its mellow vibes can be very social, it may be better suited to use with good friends rather than new acquaintances because of its tendency to inhibit conversation.
