Disclaimer: Review is based on the personal opinion of IE420Patient. Batches of the same strain can produce different results due to many factors thus, as with any "review" use as a guide, not as pure fact.
Strain Name: XJ-13
Date Acquired: March 30, 2013
Type: Hybrid (Sativa Dominant)
Looks: Nice thick lime green marijuana nuggets with areas of protruding orange "hair;" dense and also fully covered in trichomes.
Smell: Sweet candy like fruit with funk. Strong hints of lemon, citrus, and all around spiced sweetness.
Taste: Smooth hits with a sweet inhale combined with hints of grape followed by a more sour lemon like exhale.
Buzz Type: Relaxation with awareness, some increased energy.
Buzz Length: Long (2 hours)
* With the genetics of XJ-13 being Jack Herer and G13; for me, this batch had qualities more dominant of Jack Herer.
The initial buzz hit me with a sensation of head "pressure," but this quickly progressed to a more "tingly" feeling that dominated the duration of the buzz. I had a spike in energy with this strain, but with a good sense of awareness and I felt relaxed while productive too. The energy provided was just enough where I was not bouncing off the walls and feelings of stress was put at ease. I was feeling "up" and ready go after finishing a filled bubbler bowl, but after a few minutes I would come down to a more relaxing/sense of awareness state of mind.
Multiple back to back bowls can bring on a bit of euphoria while my eyes felt "low" and slightly dry. At times, I was hit some random creative and wandering thoughts which would make me lose some sense of time.
My batch of XJ-13 had some very "frosty" marijuana nuggets. The scent of this strain can linger in the immediate area where breaking up a marijuana nugget or having a bag open. Bubbler hits can be "spicy" as it would hit the back of my throat "hard" causing some slight coughs at times. I did notice while smoking XJ-13 while eating Tropical Typhoon Mike & Ike's, the taste and smell was bomb! With a mouth full of the candy, I would take a big bag whiff of this strain causing my senses to "explode."
Overall, XJ-13 is a solid Sativa strain with each bowl (or two) providing a few hours of medicinal relief. This became a nice post workout (for a Sativa, pain relief was decent) and daytime strain for me. I was able to be productive and get a lot of work done or I was able to relax and wind down after a hard day's work while watching TV or streaming music online while I surfed the web without worry of any tiredness creeping up on me. As a "go to" strain for the daytime (and work), I would consider XJ-13 again!
