It would be a great injustice if a strain like ‘Mega Jackpot’ did not live up to its name. Thankfully, it does and far exceeds the expectation of many. A powerhouse in itself, it carries consistent THC levels of 20% to 25% that make it extremely potent. Apart from that, it induces a stimulating cerebral high and an energizing body buzz through its delicious berry-flavored smoke.
Information about Mega Jackpot:
Its parents, too, are a ‘mega jackpot.’ It combines the genetics of two Sativa staples – Jack Herer and Haze. Both are incredibly famous for their high-energy buzz and potent cerebral effects. Northern Lights was later added for its pure Indica structure, fast-flowering, and strong resistance against unpredictable factors such as temperature, humidity, and pests. Sadly, Mega Jackpot inherited the extended blossoming period of its first two parents.
As alluded to earlier, Mega Jackpot contains high levels of THC that may make it too overwhelming for beginners. As such, it is best to have a seasoned friend pace and moderate the amount of buds being smoked.

Typical of a potent Sativa-leaning strain, Mega Jack has a pronounced cerebral psychedelic high that begins almost immediately after the first hit. Its euphoric rush leaves users feeling cheery and comfortable enough to open up about themselves. Although, some may get a little too chatty for their own good. Still, the strains remain a great addition to parties and social gatherings.
For casual users with work ahead of them, the clearheaded high and upbeat disposition leads to increased productivity. Coupled with a keener sense of focus, users stay motivated to finish tasks and complete projects.
After about an hour or two, the energizing buzz trickles down to the rest of the body. And, almost instantaneously, relieves it of tension. In all likelihood, users are able to move around freely and easily.
Mega Jackpot smells strongly of freshly picked fruits, particularly that of grape. Accenting the scent of damp soil is a subtle spiciness. Broken apart, the buds release an herbal musk that is similar to its parent Haze.
Drawn in, Mega Jackpot explodes into a myriad of fruity flavors – a mix of sweet berries, blueberries, strawberries, and grapes. Toning down its strong citric flavor is the creamy taste of vanilla. On the exhale, a faint but noticeable diesel lingers in the palate.
Because marijuana constantly dries the mouth, it is always best to have a drink nearby. Not coffee or alcohol though, as pairing either can be a recipe for disaster. The former overstimulates the mind while the latter increases the likelihood of greening out, a condition wherein users feel dizzy and nauseous. In such cases, a glass or two of water should be enough to rehydrate the body.
The medical applications of Mega Jackpot are endless. However, the strain is most commonly used for restoring appetites. Its muscle relaxing properties soothe the sharp, stinging pain often brought keep food-deprived bodies from eating. It also relieves nausea and keep users with anorexia from vomiting their meals, proving itself to be an excellent anti-emetic.
The same psychoactive compounds also enhance the mood and stabilize it. In stimulating the mind and inducing a clearheaded high, it temporarily appeases constant anxiety, mental and physical fatigue, negativity, as well as self-depreciating thoughts – all of which are symptoms of depression and other mental illnesses like PTSD. However, they may also be caused by chronic stress.

As if the wonderful recreational effects and medical benefits were not enough, Mega Jackpot’s original breeders have also made its seeds available. Even better, it comes in feminized form and makes the whole growing process easier. Moreover, it assures growers of an all-female batch.
Unlike other Sativa-leaning strains, Mega Jackpot is quite sturdy. Its stalks are thick while its branches are strong enough to carry the weight of its heavy buds. Its height may necessitate an early topping though, especially when cultivated indoors as it tends to reach up to 7 feet. If space is truly a premium, then aspiring growers may opt to shorten the vegetative stage.
Because of its Indica-leaning structure, Mega Jackpot can withstand the unpredictability that often comes with growing plants outdoors. However, it does require the warm, sunny weather that a Mediterranean climate brings.
It takes anywhere between 9 to 11 weeks for Mega Jackpot to finish flowering indoors. In the hands of an expert, it can yield up to 21 ounces per square meter.
Like other strains, Mega Jackpot thrives when exposed to loads of sunlight in a well-aerated garden. The herb blooms from the second or third week of October to the first week of November with each plant yielding up to 24 ounces of buds.
