Full Metal Jacket Strain Overview
Full Metal Jacket is an indica dominant hybrid strain (70% indica/30% sativa) created through crossing the iconic Face Off OG X Grandpa’s Breath strains. Named for the iconic Stanley Kubrick movie, Full Metal Jacket packs a head-spinning high that will have you flying before dropping you down into a long and peaceful sleep.
You’ll feel the effects hit your brain a few minutes after your final toke, rocketing your mind into a state of pure happiness. You’ll be free of any negative or racing thoughts, with them replaced by a boost in sociability and chattiness. At the same time, a relaxing body high will work its way into your limbs, leaving you feeling heavy and immovable, pretty much couch-locked before you know it. This combo will quickly turn sedative, leaving you dozing off before you even realize what’s hit you. With these effects and its high 24-28% average THC level, Full Metal Jacket is often chosen to treat those suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, arthritis, inflammation, chronic stress or anxiety, insomnia and mood swings or depression.
This bud has a sweet and sour citrusy lemon flavor with a lightly spicy peppery exhale. The aroma is very similar, with an earthy peppery overtone accented by sour citrusy lemon and fresh woody pine. Full Metal Jacket buds have grape-shaped emerald green nugs with sparse thin orange hairs, deep amber undertones and a coating of amber-tinted white crystal trichomes.

Hits you hard and hits you fast. Wraps you up like a heavy blanket and doesnt let you go. Yes this stuff is potent, but do not be shy. She steals you away from the world and makes everything “okay” again. This stuff is PERFECT for chillin. Alone, or with your significant other. Any couch lock you’re guaranteed to experience, can last however long or short you want it to which is rad.
If you have a high tolerance, you will be stoked because you will be high for the 1st time in ages! It starts at the tip of your skull cap – between your eyebrows and your hair. That soon moves to a morphine like hit to the back of your legs/knees and neck. The head “sensation” then moves behind your eyes and your brain settles in. The body high from this strain is epic if you’re not too tolerant…which is always the problem, right? Overall, a highly euphoric experience that covers the Indica/narcotic bases well too.
This one hits pretty damn hard, so beginners beware… start off real small. The head euphoria is really prominent until the body high sinks you into warm chocolate. This is far better for pain management vs script pills. Anxiety was immediately wiped out. But beware as I said it is POTENT. Trying this strain before bed, it seems like it would really help. Although I had no arthritic pain to compare it with others at the time, I didnt develop it hours later either.
