Jager is a potent indica named after Jagermeister, a popular German brand of licorice schnapps. And while the alcoholic beverage is fabled to contain traces of deer’s blood, the strain has no such unsavory ingredients. Jager was created by an as-yet unidentified breeder in Oregon and may be the product of popular staples Blue Dream and L.A. Confidential. Like the booze, this bud is very potent.
Jager immediately establishes its bag appeal with large, chunky flowers. The flowers have a spade-like shape, almost resembling pine cones, tapering down from a broad base to a pointed tip. The buds adhere in a dense, indica-typical structure with dark green leaves and rust-colored pistils. Most phenotypes of the strain also boast streaks of deep purple — these striking colors are the byproduct of colder-than-average weather affecting the plants’ pigments (called anthocyanins) during the growing process. These already-colorful flowers are also coated in translucent amber trichomes, accounting for their psychoactivity and giving them a very sticky texture.
