El Jefe is a cross between Rare Darkness #1 and Abusive OG. It is primarily an indica dominant strain with a THC content that falls between 22 and 25%. The buds are colorful with its orange hairs amidst dark shades of green. The buds are dense and large and quite sticky at the same time. The smell is hashy with earthy undertones. However, its taste is nothing like its smell. El Jefe delivers an exceptional blend of spicy, lemony and pine flavors that will keep you coming back for more after each hit. The strain is known for offering mind relief unlike any other. It may be strong but it is not strong enough to completely knock you out for the rest of the night. Individuals new to smoking cannabis can also smoke the strain as long as they are careful. The high is calming and relaxing and primarily offers a body buzz that calms the senses which may cause you to exhibit symptoms of couch-lock. You should keep in mind that its effects are primarily beneficial for individuals suffering from crams and muscle spasms. But that is not all, as it is just as effective at treating other severe medical conditions like anorexia, depression, anxiety and ADHD.
To the average cannabis consumer, the difference between hand-trimmed cannabis flowers and machine-trimmed might not mean much, but an experienced connoisseur may recognize that buds trimmed by machine lose potency, flavor, and trichomes.
There are other factors to consider as well. Growing techniques, as well as the use of organic methods as opposed to harsh chemicals, may appeal to the health-conscious cannabis consumer more than a large-scale producer relying on mechanically-operated systems and pesticides.
Craft marijuana grown without the use of pesticides requires extra care and attention, making sure that each plant does not get infected with spider mites or grow mold, which can devastate a crop. Maintaining steady temperature control, as well as other factors related to humidity and air filtration, can also significantly increase the yield and quality of a crop.
As any cannabis enthusiast can tell you, not all strains are created equal. However, when it comes to carefully cultivated cannabis, a great strain can be made even better with the right growing techniques and a master cultivator.
