Type: Indica-Dominant Hybrid (90%/10%)
Genotype: Joliet Jake = Pre-98 Bubba Kush X Katsu Bubba Kush
This strain is from Cresco’s own “Reserve” line of connoisseur, custom-bred strains.
“Joliet Jake Blues” was the name of the character John Belushi played in the movie The Blues Brothers.
SIDEBAR: If I were going to name a strain after John Belushi or this character, it would be the most powerful Sativa ever bred in which the high ends in a hard crash.

In their intact state, these buds smelled of dank floral sweetness and earth with fuel and purp notes. For this reviewer, the sweet component often reminded me of bubble gum sweetness. Once ground, fuel and floral sweetness took over, expressing aromas somewhat reminiscent the G6 strain. The funky dankness of the Pre-98 Bubba was present, but not in-your-face. Joliet Jake’s lung expanding smoke tasted of pine, light fuel and floral sweet notes, especially on the exhale.

Effects: A potent and pleasant Indica body high that starts in the eyes and migrates down and out from there. Sedative, but not couch-lock level. The effects work especially well if you’re looking for an Indica that you can still function on at low and moderate doses. I found the effects to be a great stress neutralizer that also addressed my mild cervical pain.
Duration of Effects: 2+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mild cervical pain and mood. May also help with anxiety, PTSD, body and muscle pain, insomnia, nausea, appetite stimulation (and more)
Delivers on top shelf quality with an assertive set of terps that doubles-down on the Bubba Kush genetics.
