Casey Jones Strain is a highly potent sativa (80:20 sativa/indica ratio) was named after a train engineer, of all people. On a foggy Mississippi night in 1900, Casey Jones prevented a massive catastrophe. He stopped his passenger train in the nick of time; as a result, he was killed in the act.
This is hardly the first time Jones has been honored as a cult hero; there are songs in his name and a character in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Appropriately, this strain works with dramatic effect.
Furthermore, reaching THC levels of 22%, it’s highly potent. Also, its sativa genes create a strong, energetic head high that spurs creativity – and maybe a little daring. The taste is citrusy and sweet, with earthy undertones.
Casey Jones Strain is best for anxiety and depression, as it provides a powerful mood boost. It’s also helpful in treating pain and low energy. As with many other strains, the most common adverse effects are cotton mouth and red eyes.
Finally, this strain, a cross between Oriental Express and East Coast Sour Diesel, is most popular in Amsterdam, Michigan, and the West Coast.
