There aren’t many cannabis strains that can genuinely say they offer something for everyone. Sweet Baby Jane being one notable exception to the rule, which is also sometimes referred to simply as Sweet Jane. One of the proudest products from Cresco Labs over the years, Sweet Baby Jane is a popular offshoot of Sweet Island Skunk that’s all about energy, enthusiasm and inspiration. Even if you don’t consider yourself a particularly creative or outgoing type, this stuff will have you ready to conquer the world after a handful of modest tokes.
Land yourself a quality batch of Sweet Baby Jane and you’ll be looking at a THC content between 12% and 17%. CBD levels also typically measure at around the 2% mark, making Sweet Baby Jane an exceptionally balanced and enjoyable strain for all purposes. Mature Sweet Baby Jane buds aren’t particularly large in size, but are nonetheless quite striking to look at. Expect a complex tapestry of green, orange and purple hues, all finished with a frosty coating of snow white trichomes.
On the nose, the aroma is dominated by tropical fruits - predominantly ripe mangoes with a sweet citrus undertone. A sizeable dose of fresh earth is released when the buds are broken, which becomes even more pronounced when combusted. The flavour profile is once again dominated by sweet and satisfying tropical fruits, followed by a skunky and sometimes moderately spicy aftertaste on the exhale. Expect a smoother and moreish experience that’s almost never cough inducing.
