Expand your mind like Mario with a magic mushroom, head into the race in star mode, and slap Bowser with a green-shell snipe shot of Jack Black dankness from Fire Bros.
Jack Black is all the rage now and in case you’ve been living under a rock, just google the new Mario Bros. movie that’s heading to 1 billion in sales at the box office worldwide. One of our favorite actors, Black plays Bowser – a character this writer has always related to. But the best part of his acting is the variety of roles he’s played iconically, from Shallow Hal to Nacho Libre, which are effectively the different strains of Jack Black the human.
So, is Jack Black actually weed in human form?
Luckily for us, we can enjoy the actor’s lineup of movies and the new heat from Fire Bros. that has earned the iconic actor and rockstar’s namesake. The Fire Bros. team has been growing top shelf craft Cannabis for over 15 years, and they’ve continued to push quality and care for the plant in each jar of flower – which is why they’ve endured as a brand to become a true leader in Washington’s weed scene.
A heady cross between Black Domina, Jack Herer and Melonade/MAC, the plant produces thick and juicy nugs that fill out the distinctly metal-themed jars, holding the sweet terpenes that beg to be released like a screech from a guitar. Side note: Jack Black is also in Tenacious D, a rare combo of rockstar and actor. Blending both worlds – just like the strain which blends the heavy indica vibes from the Black Domina with the uplifting, cerebral sativa effects of the Jack Herer and the Melonade – for a stoney and euphoric flower worthy of a stage dive.
The bountiful buds are light lime green and completely frosted in thick trichomes, with individual ones sparkling like concert lights as the flower breaks up for a bowl – coating the fingertips in sticky terps, releasing waves of lemon cream and gassy haze with a hint of effervescent apples, pepper and citrus. First tokes are fresh and bright, like a hit of spring energy with a syrupy lemonade tingle that coats the palate with each clean hit.
Effects rush into the frontal lobes, releasing the head from the shoulders to float above happily in a cerebral euphoria that delivers real meaning to the term ‘high.’ As the mind drifts freely the body relaxes, unclenching from tension and loosening muscles in a chillaxed body buzz. Continued tokes maintain an amazing level of citrus-haze inhales, staying sweet from start to finish in a bowl or joint, slowly wrapping you in a swirl of joyful terps. And just like Shallow Hal learned in his fateful movie, life and happiness are all about perception … and we love the mind-altering hilarity of Jack Black, strain and human.
