9 lb Hammer

9 Lb Hammer strain (cultivar) is an indica-dominant hybrid composed of 80/20 indica to sativa genetics. Produced by Jinxproof Genetics as a cross of Gooberry, Jack The Ripper, and Hells Angels OG strains, this hybrid carries approximately 17%-21% THC content and a low CBG of 1%. 9 Lb Hammer, also called Nine Pound Hammer or 9 Pound Hammer, has a spicy pine, lime, and grape scent and flavor. The effects can be sleepy, relaxing, and hunger-inducing, which could help manage chronic pain, insomnia, and stress.

As the name suggests, the 9 Lb Hammer is a potent indica strain with high THC levels. The strain descends from Afghani landrace lineage and is notorious for its instant effects, which can feel like a delicious, sedating blow to the head. Coming on strong and inviting the user to breathe more deeply, this somatic high starts as a cerebral slide into full-body sedation.

Offering a piney flavor and a smooth smoking experience, 9 Lb Hammer adds a little lime to the exhale and delivers earthy tones. As the buds are broken or ground, an intense aroma is released, speaking to this indica-dominant hybrid’s Afghani lineage.

The presentation can be chunky and large for a particular sticky bud with an abundance of glittering trichomes. When the flowers are exposed to colder temperatures, they may sport purple hues produced by higher levels of anthocyanin, which is triggered by the cold. 9 Lb Hammer leaves are a mossy green with yellow and orange pistils; the buds are solid, tight, and thick, and the leaves tend to turn toward the stem.
