Jack Frost

Jack Frost is a hybrid marijuana strain produced by crossing the following three strains together:

An additional cannabis strain called Rainbow Kashmiri (Rainbow Kush) is also sometimes included in the mix, but this is less common.

The sweet, woody, skunky, and citrus flavor profile contributes to the creativity-boosting, happy and energizing body effects of Jack Frost. This makes a cultivar like Jack Frost potentially helpful in managing anxiety, depression, stress, and chronic fatigue.

Jack Frost was developed and perfected by the Californian brand Goldenseed over five years. It is a sativa-dominant strain, containing 65% Cannabis sativa and 35% Cannabis indica genetics.

Jack Frost is named after the crystallized layers of frosty-looking white trichomes present on the buds of the plant. Some say they resemble Christmas trees, and bright orange pistils also characterize the plant. Overall, Jack Frost has a fluffy, dry, and delicate appearance.

Jack Frost can be successfully grown indoors or outdoors.

Some cultivators say that it’s best to grow Jack Frost in soil. However, a hydroponics setup can be used if desired. This is where cannabis plants are grown in a nutrient-rich water solution rather than soil.

Both the “sea of green” (growing many small plants in a small confined area) and the “screen of green” (manipulating the branches to grow horizontally to expose more to the light) growing methods can be applied to Jack Frost.

Jack Frost plants produce an average-sized yield. When grown indoors, you can expect one plant to produce a yield of approximately 16 ounces (453 grams) of bud per square meter. When grown outdoors, a yield of about 19 ounces (548 grams) per square meter can be expected.

Sativa-dominant strains are usually tall. You can expect your Jack Frost plants to reach between 60 and 80 inches (1.5 to 2 meters).
