Jet Fuel strain genetics

Jet Fuel is made by crossing High Country Diesel with Aspen OG. It was originally created by Colorado-based 303 Seeds. The team at 303 Seeds wanted to breed the ultimate gas strain, sifting through a wide range of fuel-forward varieties. The strain is sometimes called Jet Fuel OG and G6 Kush.

With so many high-octane strains in its lineage, it’s no surprise Jet Fuel is one of the most pungent weed varieties on the market today.

Flavor and aroma profile of Jet Fuel

The dominant terpenes in the Jet Fuel strain are puckery limonene, herbal myrcene, and peppery caryophyllene. It also has lower concentrations of pinene and terpinolene, supercharging the diesel scent.

Cracking a jar of Jet Fuel is reminiscent of hanging up the pump at the local filling station. The sharp gasoline fumes tickle the nostrils, lingering long after you’ve driven away. Expect Jet Fuel to knock your socks off with its acrid aroma—and similarly tangy taste.

On the inhale, the Jet Fuel strain fills your mouth with petrol fumes. While it may sound unnatural, the flecks of evergreen haze make it a surprisingly pleasant experience. On the exhale, expect notes of lemon and earth that will chase the gas straight away. It’s a well-rounded yet incredibly flavorful smoke that’ll send you straight to the stars.

Jet Fuel strain effects

The vast majority of consumers find Jet Fuel to be energizing and focused. It’s likely to get your motor running after just a few hits. Perfect for daytime, the Jet Fuel strain will likely give you the juice you need to get your errands done and your house clean.

Jet Fuel can easily make your head spin, meaning it’s less than ideal for people prone to anxiety. Thoughts can race through your mind faster than a Formula One car during a grand prix, so caution should be exercised prior to consumption. THC levels in Jet Fuel are often over 30 percent, so it’s important that people pace themselves with this weed strain.

Growing the Jet Fuel strain

Jet Fuel is not a strain for beginner cultivators. Because of its sativa leanings, it tends to be a bit more challenging to grow. Plants can be lanky, especially in an outdoor garden. According to one purveyor of Jet Fuel seeds, these ladies could reach up to ten feet tall!

Whether grown inside or outdoors, expect Jet Fuel to flower within nine to ten weeks. Under perfect conditions (somewhat warm and humid), each plant could yield up to 14 ounces of bud.
