|Bigger than you figure!|
Maybe I was impatient because it's a bit like Christmas. Getting goodies through mail feels pretty fantastic to me... opening up all those layers of wrap, finally getting to unzip that ounce and take a deep breath. I get a bit antsy and giddy with anticipation and this time was no different.
The smell of Jack Frost made my mouth water before I even had toked it. The odour smelled a bit like Alberta bush; musky, sweet and dense. The flavours I noted during my vape session were strong on the terpenes and mellowed nicely towards the end of each of the three chambers, no harsh tastes, no chlorophyll. Just nice clean, well-cured cannabis from British Colombia. This time around, the test was much a test of my endurance to cold as to review Jack Frost. While I may have frozen my fingertips in the -20C, I managed to have the pleasure of vaping three chambers of Jack Frost back to back. The buzz from that session was like getting hit with a frying pan. It left me stunned. Any pain from my Fibromyalgia was forgotten. Initially, it was hard to focus on a particular train of thought, my mind was a happy jumble of pleasantness. When I did get over that initial impact, creativity set in and I was able to focus a bit more on my writing.

Later that day, I sat down for a pipe session. After toking two pipe bowls, (RIP The Hammer), I was left in another dazed state, immersed in creative thought. Not sure how long I had let my mind drift as I contemplated a writing project I have on hand. But my mind wandered across worlds and realms before landing back into reality. As my old hippie friend/dealer Cliff would say, "I went for a trip, and I didn't even leave my chair!" Jack Frost is an ass-kicker for my imagination.
The taste I experienced with Jack Frost was fantastic. It is an earthy and smooth smoke and toking it really brought out those terpenes. The initial tokes off of my Zeus Smite had the biggest rush of flavour, eventually mellowing out to a nice toasted taste. This batch of Jack Frost shows the dedication the growers have. The buds are all good looking and full of tricombs, and after running it through my trusty bud buster shows just how much can come off from just a few buds. The curing is also well-done, great flavour and smooth smoke, easy on the throat.

So summing up the effect; for me, the mind is energized, but getting the body to channel the energy to write or anywhere else may take some practice. It's so easy to relax and chill out to some soft music... and let the mind wander up... down... and away...
The fibro pain is also diminished and I could fall asleep if I really wanted to. But I can push myself out of the couchlock with a bit of a mental prodding. I am happy to mention that sleep does happen! Heavy and restful, deep and peaceful.
In the beginning, I found the price a bit high, but Sativas are often found within a higher price point because of their qualities. Jack Frost gave me an incredible gift of imaginative thought and a deep sleep. This batch is indeed worth its price. I rate it a full 5/5
