With a history even more obscure than it’s famous parent, the only truth known about XJ-13 is it’s direct lineage. It is a cross between the widely known strain G-13 and another famous strain, Jack Herer. While the breeder is unknown, it was listed in Oaksterdam University’s 2011 clone catalog as being a “Garden Rescue” but no further information has surfaced.
Some believe that the strain is an attempt to overcome G-13’s main weak point, a lack of flavor that could really be called pleasurable. XJ-13 tastes of sweet and spice, with hints of pine and lime. This hybrid produces a body numbing buzz that comes packaged with mood elevation, clarity and attentiveness.
An ideal strain for patients to jump start their day, XJ-13 may provide good morning and daytime relief from pain, anxiety, stress and depression. It may be very effective medication for some insomniacs. The strain can also alleviate the effects of migraines, nausea and anorexia. This strain is very potent and patients should take caution when using it.
This strain is clone only, capable of being grown both indoors and out. XJ-13 tends to finish flowering right between eight and nine weeks. Many growers recommend vegetating the strain for a month and topping it at least once. Outdoors the strain is ready for harvest around mid-October.
