Green Envy: Exploring the Jealousy Cannabis Strain Experience

May 5, 2024

Hybridizing cannabis plants is a favorite pastime for many hobbyists, and these versatile flora tend to respond well to attempts to cultivate and create new varieties. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of both enthusiast growers as well as large marijuana businesses, hundreds of new cannabis strains have entered the market for recreational and medical consumers.

Among strains that have had a significant public impact, Jealousy tops out that list. Despite its recent creation, it has swept the marijuana hobby and taken even veteran enthusiasts by surprise.

Here’s what you need to know about the Jealousy cannabis strain, from where it came from to what you can expect during the experience and some things to keep in mind.

History and Awards

The Jealousy cannabis strain is a newcomer to the marijuana scene, coming into the public eye as recently as post-2020. However, Jealousy quickly gained widespread attention, and it was not long before Internet giant Leafly awarded the strain with its Strain of the Year award in 2022.

Jealousy was the brainchild of Seed Junky Genetics, who developed the line by crossing Gelato 41 with Sherbert Bx1. Because both parents are also hybrids, Jealousy benefits from a diverse range of curated effects and ties in with the genetic legacy of many of the most popular cannabis varieties: Girl Scout Cookies, Thin Mint Cookies, and Kush lineage.

Taste and Aromatic Composition

Jealousy is a complex and varied bud; thanks to its parentage, it has a bouquet of flavors and aromas. Thanks to its mixture of Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Limonene, and other potential contributors (such as Linalool, depending on the plant), those who partake can expect to go on a flavorful journey.

The most dominant note is of a peppery spice, but upon closer inspection, you may note some citrus, lemon, or fruit hints that smell floral and light. After these brighter flavors disperse, Jealousy hits with an earthy and deep aroma, finishing with a funk that likely traces back to its Kush ancestor. Thanks to this wide array of smells and tastes, Jealousy can be a good option for some edibles.

The Jealousy Experience

Jealousy has become extremely popular in the short time since its development, and there are a few very good reasons for that. Primarily, Jealousy expertly balances the Indica-forward heritage of its hybrid parents with the energizing effects of Sativa cannabis varieties to create an experience that is both relaxing and invigorating.

Most people report that the first feelings to arise after consuming Jealousy are calming, relaxing their mind, and easing symptoms of anxiety and stress. However, rather than melting into the couch for a day of deep rest, the Sativa side of Jealousy kicks in to foster a chatty happiness that lends itself to adventures and social meetups.

Thus, the dual nature of Jealousy can leave a person feeling mentally and emotionally loosened up and free without sapping them of the energy to do fun activities with friends.

Those who sample Jealousy tend to find that they are relaxed and uninhibited by the usual self-conscious or anxious limitations of their mind. This, in turn, often fosters creativity and talkative energy that lends itself to moments of inspiration and connection.

Potential Side Effects and Reactions

While Jealousy is a great fit for many people, not all will respond favorably—just as with any strain. Sometimes, the THC content in a particular Jealousy bud can swing up into the low 20s, making it ideal for those who already have some experience with stronger cannabis products under their belts.

Start slow; you can always stop consuming but cannot undo what you have already consumed. If a person partakes too much Jealousy at once, they may experience some minor side effects, such as a dry mouth and dizziness.

This sense of vertigo may be accompanied by a headache, and this can leave them feeling anxious. Remember to drink plenty of water to help your body process the cannabinoids in the Jealousy marijuana strain, which will ease these symptoms gradually over time.
