Don’t let the name scare you; 9lb Hammer is nothing to fear, but still, everything to respect and appreciate. This heavy indica strain is known for its potentially strong relaxing and oftentimes sleep-inducing effects. Thus, it has become a popular strain amongst medicinal users who struggle with insomnia, stress, and pain.

9lb Hammer Strain

Also known as Nine Pound Hammer, this strain is originally bred by JinxProof Genetics, who crossed Gooberry, Hells OG, and Jack the Ripper. With these three parents, 9lb’s family history also includes Afgoo, Blueberry, Blackberry, OG Kush, Space Queen, and Haze. With many indicas and indica-leaning hybrid strains in its lineage, it’s no wonder that 9lb Hammer potentially offers a spectrum of calming effects.

Furthermore, the premium cultivar holds a mid-high potency level, sitting around 17-21% THC. It also has around 1% CBG, which lends more calming effects. Additionally, its most dominant terpene is myrcene, lending it anti-inflammatory, sleep-supporting, mood-enhancing, stress-relieving, and immune-strengthening properties. Pinene and caryophyllene are other prominent terpenes in this strain, which are to thank for some of its other therapeutic properties and flavors.

The combination of its family history, cannabinoid content, and prominent terpenes further solidifies 9lb Hammer’s reputation as a strain that might knock you out and lift your pain. If any strain is going to potentially lend you a solid night of sleep—it is the 9lb Hammer strain.
