With is distinctive sweet-meets-bitter citrus flavor, and great structure, we give this Jilly Bean a hearty endorsement for patients seeking a relaxing yet mentally active experience. Its potent, but not-too-potent effects package was perfect for a relaxing day of sedentary work or unwinding in the evening. Patients who suffer from anxiety issues can find relief here, as this is a Sativa that will not cause panic or discomfort, even at higher dosages. This is a great example of the strain, and the strain itself is a unique and flavorful one — that makes for a wonderful combination.

An exceptional example of a seed form with the orange punch flavor of Aeric77's Cali O[range] bred by TGA/Subcool. The strain has experienced a resurgence in popurity thanks to the sweet citrus terpenes that it yields well in hash oil.

The main aroma is a very orange/grapefruit-heavy citrus scent, but the backing spiciness comes out post-grind, releasing an almost garlic-like quality that almost took over the citrus. While it wasn't pungent in the realm of a Sour Diesel or something like that, it was very pungent for its type and even in a closed baggie could be detected from a few feet away, broadcasting its citrusy musk.
This one seemed to almost change at times, with some of us reporting a straight up orange drink (yep, like Tang) flavor, complete with the artificial quality of it all, while some got more of the spicy almost fuel-like qualities from the post-grind smell. The early hits tended to be more sweet, but left a bitter citrus oil taste lingering on the lips that hinted at the flavor of the later hits. This is an amazing orange strain though, most people will notice the similarities to the fruit immediately, whether it's the smell or the taste.
The effects of this Jilly Bean were felt quickly and strongly, but it never got us to that racy or anxious state that some strong starters do, keeping us feeling mentally at-ease the entire time, though mentally energized. An increase in eye pressure (but not facial pressure) and a fluttery feeling in the chest were the early physical manifestations, but mentally it was definitely uplifting, greatly improving our mood and showing no outward signs of medication, making it a good professional/"stealth" type of strain. There was some visual enhancement as well, and in general, our senses felt very aware and acute. Despite the energy, most of us found that we spent most of our time sitting and smiling rather than being up and active — this is a relaxing Sativa overall, feeling much like a 50/50 hybrid as the lineage would indicate. During the last hour or so of effects, the Indica side came out more, and we felt very relaxed, with strong muscle relaxation and at times heavy eyes.
