Jamaican Pearl Feminised was created by crossing Early Pearl, an outdoor sativa hybrid strain, with some rather special cultivars from the Caribbean region. Jamaican Pearl is a tall plant with heavy production potential that is acclimatised to cooler climates such as that of northern Europe.
Several tropical Caribbean sativas were crossed and grown out be Sensi some of which did surprisingly well and even finished flowering in a typically short Dutch summer. This surprising turn of events led to the cross with Early Pearl. Jamaican Pearl can attain heights of 300 cm. if started early in the growing season. If shorter plants are required for whatever reason then they should just be planted later in the Spring or even early summer. Successful harvests can be gathered up to 50°North with flowering finishing by late October or early November at the very latest.
These plants are quite bushy in contrast to many sativas which are rather tall and lanky. In typical sativa fashion, though, its flowering clusters have a tendency to “run” together filling in the spaces between inter-nodes forming long, fat colas as they do so. It is this characteristic that allows Jamaican Pearl to give such bountiful harvests, it is certainly one of Sensi Seeds’ best and most prodigious outdoor cannabis plants.
It can also do very well indoors; it is recommended to allow only a short period of vegetative growth in order to control the vertical growth. Growth is very lush and many budding sites are produced. Indoors flowering takes between 9 and 11 weeks. The buds are denser than many sativa strains with this fact being attributed to the indica plants that have been randomly crossed with native sativa cultivars, having been brought to the region by Indian workers over the last few centuries.
The scent and taste of Jamaican Pearl is sweet, fruity, earthy and spicy which is reflective of the rich diversity of its genetic heritage. Its effect is recommended for both medicinal and recreational use producing a warm, happy, uplifting, glowing effect that radiates throughout the body and mind and providing therapeutic relaxation.
