Jamaican Pearl’s vigorous, productive growing profile is a favourite of growers everywhere. Made from Early Pearl, one of Sensi Seeds oldest, most reliable outdoor sativa strains, and a blend of special Caribbean cultivars, Jamaican Pearl Feminized seeds maintain her superb mostly-sativa balance and makes it easy to produce a crop of big, powerful flowering plants.
Jamaican Pearl Feminized cannabis seeds have their origins in a Sensi Seeds breeding program which focused on tropical sativas. While working with some classic Jamaican cannabis varieties, Sensi Seeds breeders grew out and crossbred several interesting strains of tough, thick-flowering tropical cannabis. Jamaican cannabis which grew well in the unpredictable early months of the northern season and could even finish flowering in the short Dutch summer was a very interesting development!
Together with Early Pearl, those plants and their offspring were fundamental to the breeding of original Jamaican Pearl seeds and they have been used again in the development of their feminized cannabis seed strain, in order to maintain her Caribbean sativa flavours and characteristics.
Starting Jamaican Pearl Feminized seeds early in the season will make outdoor plants more likely to reach their full height, which can be up to 300cm for this strain! Alternatively, seeds can be started later in the spring to control the final height of the plants. Flowering is normally triggered some time in August and is well underway by September. At latitudes around 50°N, plants can be harvested at the end of October or the first weeks of November.
Growing outdoors, these thick-stemmed, bushy sativas should be expected to finish bigger than a standard indica, without becoming unmanageably tall and slender like many Haze hybrids. In bloom, flower clusters have the characteristic sativa ‘run’, causing her sturdy branches to become full with long, sticky, delightfully dense colas of bud. This combination of size, heavy lateral branching and long, running buds makes Jamaican Pearl Feminized one of Sensi Seeds best-producing and most reliable outdoor seed strains.
These seeds can also grow beautifully indoors, under lights, provided growers take the same measures they would growing any other mostly sativa seed-strain indoors. Seeds should be given a short growing period followed by a flowering period of 9 to 11 weeks. During vegetation and early flowering Jamaican Pearl Feminized is generally bushier than varieties meant purely for indoor growing, and her buds react very well to grow-lights, becoming even denser and more resinous.
When properly harvested and cured, Jamaican Pearl Feminized buds will retain a satisfying amount of weight and density. The proliferation of long, silky pistils from her massed calyxes can give buds a ‘fuzzy’ look, but this should not be confused with ‘fluffy’ – the flower structure beneath the hairs remains solid and brittle with resin.
This enhanced bud structure is due to the difference between Caribbean sativas and their Southeast Asian relatives. Although the wild tropical sativas native to the region make up majority of their gene pool, many strains of cultivated Jamaican cannabis have a relatively recent link to indica varieties, which were brought to the islands from the Indian subcontinent in the last few centuries. Traces of the indica influence are still seen in the thicker buds and shorter, wider profile possessed by many of the region’s most prized sativa cultivars.
That same influence is still strongly felt, as well – in the potent, uplifting, yet mellow sativa effect for which Jamaican cannabis is famous. Where a powerful Haze high could be described as ‘electric’, Jamaican Pearl Feminized is more like sunshine – breezy, warm and happy. And very, very strong, naturally! It’s an effect that can enhance an active daytime adventure or just as easily fit into a relaxed evening with good food and music.
Sensi Seeds feminized strain produces flowers with a rich aroma and flavour composed of sweet, fruity, earthy and spicy notes from her equally rich ancestry. Their favourite examples of Jamaican Pearl Feminized are those which grow buds with strong indica and sativa features and are doused with the deep, sharp-spicy ‘green oil’ smell of her ‘collie herb’ ancestors.
Sensi Seeds powerful, exotic, feminized sativa strain rewards medicinal and recreational growers with easy, bountiful harvests. This sweet cannabis delivers a delicious burst of flavour and splendid, golden effect that warms the body like a ray of sunshine – from the tips of the toes to the frontal lobes!
There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
