In-Depth Details: Casey Jones Strain Profile
The Casey Jones strain is an 80/20 sativa-dominant hybrid cross between Oriental Express and East Coast Sour Diesel. The cross was first developed by Grateful Head and named after the famous train conductor who gave his life to save his passengers in a train accident thanks to its Trainwreck heritage. The strain is more of a three-way cross between Trainwreck and East Coast Sour Diesel with Thai landrace added later. While the genetic makeup is predominantly indica, the strain offers notably upbeat sativa effects.
Casey Jones checks in at 20-25% THC and contains a plethora of herbal and citrus-forward terpenes, including Pinene, Limonene, and b-Caryophyllene. The presence of these terpenes in addition to a healthy dose of THC makes the Casey Jones strain exceptionally medically viable in a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.
The strain is also pretty easy on the eyes, too. Though it throws sativa-dominant effects, it tends to grow much like an indica. It offers an extremely chunky bud and cola structure and grows bushy with sparser foliage. However, given ample space, the Casey Jones strain does grow to be quite sativa-tall. The flowers themselves grow in thick colas with each bud breaking from the main flower in large spade-shaped chunks. Each one is a vibrant shade of green wrapped in a thick silver trichome coat. Sandy orange pistils can also be found in large numbers on each glistening bud.
The aroma is equally impressive, boasting a fragrant and herbaceous but earthen scent. While growing, Casey Jones plants take on an herbal and piney aroma. However, when dried the flowers take on a more complex fragrance of pungent earthiness and a subtle sweetness similar to lemon and citrus fruits. When the flowers are burned they take on a woody and earthy aroma, leaving a peppery spice in the air with sweet citrus tones.
Casey Jones tastes a lot like it smells in the sense that it's quite earthy and citrusy, though the flavor is more pronounced than the aroma. Instead of the citrus notes being more subtle and paling in comparison to the earth tones, the strain is noticeably citrusy. An inhale will warrant many of those pine and herbal notes, though the smoke itself is rather peppery. On an exhale, the strain's true citrus flavors come out leaving a potent lemon flavor on the tongue at the end of the session.
The effects kick in almost immediately, filling your head with happy thoughts and a brightly uplifting and energizing sensation. The strain is predominantly cerebral, offering a blissful euphoria and a poignant sense of focus and creativity. It does offer a mild body effect too thanks to the 20% indica traits it displays, allowing you to find some potent relief from pain and fatigue while going about your business during the day.
If you're looking at Casey Jones for its medicinal uses, you'll find that it's a sure winner for daytime medicine. Its moderate levels of THC and energizing terpenes make the strain an excellent choice for boosting your energy and creativity levels. However, it also offers focusing effects and can be great for managing the symptoms of ADD and ADHD. Its upbeat effects are great for combatting depression, stress, and mood swings, too. It's gentle body buzz also makes it possible to beat headaches, nausea, and chronic pain.
Just keep in mind that the Casey Jones strain, like most cannabis strains, may come with side effects. While most patients see normal side effects like cottonmouth or dry eyes, the strain may also cause anxiety in high doses. Cannabis is an excellent medicine for managing chronic symptoms, but keep in mind that it isn't a cure-all. It's just a safe, effective alternative for many chronic symptoms. For general use though, Casey Jones is one of the best strains out there for medical cannabis patients. It's medium potency levels combined with its helpful body buzz and positive cerebral effects make the strain a popular choice among patients who visit our dispensaries here in Colorado Springs.
The Epic Remedy's Casey Jones Strain Review
The last time I stopped into the dispensary, I asked for them to simply send me home with two eighths containing the largest buds they had on hand, and as usual, they didn't let me down. The first bag they handed me was the sativa-dominant Casey Jones strain, which was named after a heroic train driver and folk legend who died in a train accident in 1900. The buds inside were massive, sticky, colorful, and fragrant, so I was eager to get them home, photographed, and ready to sample.
The buds inside the bag smelled exceptionally sweet and citrusy, though they had a subtle earthiness to them. After I took my time photographing these little beauties, I loaded them into a bowl and sampled the flavors. Casey Jones tastes a lot like she smells, though the flavor is more earth forward than citrus forward. The smoke itself is pretty peppery but smooth. Ultimately, I was very impressed with these flavors.
The high set in almost immediately, transporting my brain from standard operation to turbo speed, replacing all of my thoughts with a deeply happy sensation, leading to a case of the giggles and an out of this world euphoria. After a few minutes of adjusting to that sensation, the high mellowed out into something more focused and energetic. You'll definitely want to have something to do while smoking this bud, but with that said, you'll be able to accomplish a lot. The strain has focusing and uplifting properties, giving you a good dose of energy while you go about your day symptom-free.
As far as most strains go, I'm not sure there's a better strain out there for stress and depression. Casey Jones will have you feeling happy and energetic, ready for anything without any added stress or paranoia. I tend to struggle with distractions and appreciated this strain for its energizing and focusing qualities. I've used it in the past for PMS with great success, too.
All in all, I'd say that the Casey Jones strain is a great choice for managing pain as well as mental issues like fatigue, mood swings, and depression. It's a great choice for daytime and on-the-go medicating thanks to its great cerebral effects and gentle body high that can help without hindering. If you haven't had the chance to try it, grab a bag from any of our three Colorado Springs medical dispensaries. Just be sure to check out menus or give us a call first before you stop by to make sure that it's in stock. This week's secret code is "WHISTLE AND BRAKE". Thanks for checking it out!
