A Jamba Juice is a healthy smoothie made out of fresh fruit or vegetable. While it may not be a blended drink, its cannabis counterpart is just as delicious. It has the sweet taste of ripened berries accentuated by an earthy pine undertone that leaves a refreshing aftertaste in the mouth.
Jamba Juice is a cross between two fruit-flavored strains, Banana OG and Strawberry Cough. The latter is a base for its offspring’s Sativa-dominant genes as well as tropical overtones. Meanwhile, the former enhances its terpene profile while influencing the stress-crushing relaxation.
Its zesty smoke induces an invigorating high that helps relieve the mental and physical stress that comes with living one’s daily life. At the same time, it sparks interest in one’s tasks and rekindles the motivation to complete or finish it. Moreover, it has an analgesic quality that comforts patients in need of a reprieve against pain and aches.

For this reason, it is a great wake-and-bake treat for when spirits are particularly low or one is generally unmotivated to work.
After about an hour or two, the same tingling pressure from behind the eyes oozes down to the rest of the body. It comes in waves, soothing each muscle powerfully until it is free of tension. Keeping it from overwhelming the body into a full-on couch lock, however, is the persistent. Overall, Jamba Juice is a great strain to use in the morning or early afternoon.

Jamba Juice Growing
Jamba Juice is a tall strain with a lanky structure. Generally, it is weak against strong winds but a light breeze strengthens its branches. Being a tropical strain, it prefers the warmth and humidity of a countries located near the equator. Thus, climate and location are two prerequisites to consider when cultivating Jamba Juice.
A Mediterranean climate also provides adequate sunlight as days are generally longer. This is not to say the plant will not thrive in the northern hemisphere. Rather, it may take longer to flower due to the lack of sun and changing seasons. For this reason, many growers prefer cultivating it indoors.
The Screen of Green works best with Jamba Juice. It requires installing a screen a few feet above the batch and nipping branches or leaves that go beyond it to create an even canopy. It keeps the plant short too, especially when it is topped early too. With that said, growers may also weave or bend the branches into the net.
Using soil as a medium is highly recommended to bring out its tantalizing flavors and scents. However, growers may also opt for a soilless based medium such as hydroponics. This will not only hasten Jamba Juice’s flowering process but also encourage higher yields. Once mature, the plant produces large, pine-cone shaped buds that stretch out on one end. It is colorful too, with yellow and amber pistils lining the green nugs. When exposed to cooler temperatures, it turns into a light purple to deep violet hue.
Jamba Juice matures between 10 to 12 weeks after initiating the flowering period. Once ready for harvest, it yields between 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.
In the northern hemisphere, Jamba Juice flowers from the last days of October to the middle of November. Growers can expect at least 16 ounces of buds per plant during harvest..
