With such a strong high, there really is no question as to why the El Jefe strain really is one of the big dons of cannabis. El Jefe, which translates to The Boss, is primarily an indica-dominant hybrid strain that is produced by crossbreeding Abusive OG and Rare Dankness #1, created by the breeders at Rare Dankness Seeds. While its name can be intimidating, there is no reason to fear its powerful effects. In fact, as powerful as this strain is, and despite its domineering name, it is effective without being overwhelming, and on the contrary, is actually quite blissful and soothing. Combined with a delicate blend of sweet, spicy and citrus flavours, the El Jefe strain is an enjoyable way for any cannabis user for self-medicated pain relief or to sit back and unwind after a long hard day.
Just like how any true quality indica should make you feel, smoking the El Jefe will give you the ultimate peace of mind. Easing your stress and melting your worries away, this strain knows how to work itself on users to give them a state of bliss and calmness, and it does so without being too overpowering. It is highly sedative, but is not the type to knock you out immediately into a deep sleep that is near impossible to wake up from, but it can definitely relax you enough to get couch-locked or help you fall asleep if you are having trouble. Users will feel a numb-like body buzz with the El Jefe high that can be quite enjoyable. It is particularly popular amongst medical users because of how strongly soothing it is physically, helping with a variety of issues like nausea, chronic pains or aches, PMS cramps, eye pressure, arthritis, migraines, spasms and tremors. Its calmness on the mind is also helpful for those with PTSD, anxiety, stress, depression and ADHD.
El Jefe is typically an indica-dominant hybrid with a ratio of 70%:30% to sativa, but different growers and variants may result in a balanced 50:50. Its strong THC content average falls between 22%-25%. Abusive OG, one of its parents, is a descendant of OG Kush and a 100% pure indica with a THC average of 13%-18%. While this is a slightly lower THC count, it also has 5% CBD. Rare Dankness #1 is also an indica-dominant hybrid at a 75%:25% ratio with 22% THC, itself a mix of Chemdawg, Ghost OG and Triangle Kush. With such a variety of strong indicas in its lineage, there is no wonder why this strain is indeed the boss!

Appearance & Aroma
The buds of El Jefe are on the larger side and pretty dense with shades of dark forest greens. These are decorated with bright orange, hair-like pistils and a sticky white coating of trichomes. While it is definitely a beautiful strain, the aromas and flavours are where it’s at with this one. El Jefe has a strong scent of hash spice and kush earthiness, even slightly pungent, though it doesn’t really taste like these flavours. Instead, upon exhale, you can taste a delicious sweet and spicy citrus that is nicely balanced by a refreshing pine flavour, a delectable flavour profile worthy of a boss!
