Case No: 0131
Type: Sativa-dominant Hybrid (breakdown unknown)

There are at least two different cuts of this strain. One was bred by Sensi Seeds and another by Nirvana Seeds. I believe this one is the Sensi Seeds variety.
Black Domina = a carefully bred genetic mash-up of Northern Lights, Ortega, Hash Plant, and an Afghani strain
Jack Herer = Haze X [Northern Lights #5 X (Northern Lights #5 X Skunk #1)]

Phenotype Profile: Very dense, large buds that exhibited lots of mid-greens, copper-orange hairs and a decent coating of trichcomes. It exhibited all the textbook traits of Sensi Seeds' cut of Black Jack.
Bud Density: 4.5 [1-5]
About the Packaging: This cultivator included a Boveda brand humidity pack (see pic above) with the flower in an effort to maintain just the right level of moisture in the flower and prevent premature drying. I also found the unique type of ziplock on the bag to be noticeably more effective than the typical ziplock.
Terpene Profile: The cultivator lists on the package the following: Terpenes 28,644. I believe this number probably equals the weight in total micrograms (µg) of all the terpenes content in this 3.54g sample. Here's the terpenes breakdown from the lab report:
Delta 3 Carene 0.0546%; Beta-Caryophyllene 0.3220%; p-Cymene 0.0228%; Fenchone 0.0108%; Alpha-Humulene 0.1103%; Linalool 0.0242%; Limonene 0.0738%; Beta-Myrcene 0.1923%; Nerolidol 0.0243%; Ocimene 0.2203%; Phellandrene 0.0736%; Alpha-Pinene 0.1175%; Beta-Pinene 0.1302%; Sabinene 0.0249%; Alpha-Terpinene 0.0511%; Alpha-Terpineol 0.0440%; Terpinolene 0.6700% (LK Pure Labs)
In their intact state, these buds emitted light aromas of spicy-sweetness. Once I ground it up, this sample smelled of sour-pine, floral sweetness from the JH with earth/wood notes. I found that the humidity pack noticeably helped to maintain moisture at the correct level. When smoked, this bud tasted of light sour pine and earth with sweet notes on the exhale. I could tell the bud was just starting to lose some of its flavor, but still on the flavorful side.

Effects: Uplifting, euphoric, powerful yet nuanced type of stimulation. For me, this one hits the sweet spot for a nuanced, medical daytime strain. The Black Domina manifests as a halo of light relaxation in the background. FYI: Can get a little trippy at high doses.
Duration of Effects: 1.5-2 hours
May Help With: Helped with fatigue and as a creativity booster. May also help with depression, anxiety (in lower doses), mild body pain, appetite (and more)
An impressive entry for this new cultivator. I also appreciate the conscientious packaging.
