John Snow is a frosty hemp strain ostensibly named for the Game of Thrones character, Jon Snow.
We’re not sure why the hemp-John is spelled differently, but what we do know is that it has the potential to be just as iconic and memorable as its GoT counterpart.
John Snow hemp flowers are loaded with CBG and account for a sizeable chunk of the total CBG flowers sold in the United States every year.
There aren’t many CBG strains to choose from, but John Snow is definitely one of the best.
John Snow Hemp Flower Review
With medium-sized buds that feature a frosty coating of trichomes, light-green leaves, and occasional red hairs, John Snow is a good-looking varietal that provides a powerful punch of CBG.
Philly Sour Diesel and Jack the Ripper are the two strains that combined to produce John Snow. It’s a rare breed and one that you won’t find in every dispensary, but it’s strong, and if you’re looking for a CBG varietal, it’s a good option.
John Snow Aroma and Flavors
At around 21% CBG, John Snow is full of the good stuff and has a balanced terpene profile that combines Bisabolol, Guiol, Caryophyllene, Pinene, and Myrcene to create a blend that is fruity, spicy, fragrant, and slightly sour.
The sourness comes through much stronger when you smoke, and there is also an earthiness, but it still maintains the floral sweetness that you detect when opening the bag.
Benefits of John Snow
The delicate balance of terpenes, in combination with traces of CBD and a hefty dose of CBG, makes John Snow ideal for use as a medicinal strain.
Everyone responds differently, but it may help you to relax and unwind. Some users also report anti-anxiety and painkilling effects.
These smokable hemp flowers contain over 20% CBG on average, as well as trace amounts of other cannabinoids. CBG has been called the “Mother Cannabinoid” and is quickly becoming one of the most popular in the industry.
It’s worth trying if you have always had a good relationship with CBD or if you feel like CBD works well but is just missing some balance.
