About 9 Pound Hammer
9 Pound Hammer is a serious indication with a genetic background for patchwork. It’s a three-way junction between Jack the Kidnapper, Hell Angel OG and Fruit Gooberry. This relaxing bud was created by fertile growers of TGA Subcool Seeds, the same producers responsible for Deep Purple and Jesus OG. Cannabis Testing Laboratory Analytical 360 measured a hammer strength of 9 pounds between 14% and 23% THC.
When properly cured, 9 Pound Hammer has a strong fruity aroma with a tropical inflection. Like parent strain Jack the Ripper, it is redolent of citrus and grape. Meanwhile, breaking the buds apart gives off a strong incense-like odor courtesy of this strain’s Afghani landrace lineage. When combusted in a bowl or a joint, 9 Pound Hammer burns with a remarkably smooth smoke that tastes woodsy and piney with a hint of lime on the exhale. Notably, this strain’s pronounced grape flavor is entirely incidental to its purple hues — as with any other variety, its flavor is determined by terpene compounds while its appearance is dictated by its unique pigmentation.
This sensation soon progresses into a full-body high that may leave smokers feeling floaty and disoriented. In addition to these somatic effects, 9 Pound Hammer imparts some subtle mental stimulation — while it may not trigger intense, cerebral thinking, it can alter perception, making sounds or colors take on a new intensity. If dosage is increased, this strain is liable to cause couch-lock, sapping energy and motivation along with any lingering pain and stress. As a result, 9 Pound Hammer is best enjoyed at night, when its strong sedative effects can easily transition into sleep.
Fortunately for growers, TGA has made seeds with 9 pounds of hammers available for sale online. It can be grown indoors or outdoors, although successful outdoor cultivation requires a semi-humid climate with daily temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It is easily located indoors, where the plants grow short and shrubs with a strong lateral branch. Growers need to be sure to cut off all the wide fan-blocking fan leaves to encourage the growth of flower nodes on the lower branches. Thanks to some very stable genes, it is also resistant to mold. Finally, growers who want to discover the appeal of this full-blooded bag of their carcasses should bring out their purple hues by exposing the plants to cold (but not freezing) night temperatures. 9 pounds of hammers bloom within a short seven to 8 weeks when grown indoors and offer growers a high yield of flowers for their efforts.
