Jet Fuel Strain

Place your seat backs in the upright and locked position, because Sativa-dominant Jet Fuel will have you ready for a powerful cerebral takeoff.

This strain, also commonly known as Jet Fuel OG or G6 (and less commonly known as Jet Fuel G6, G6 Kush, or Jet Fuel Kush) provides a blast of energy with a skunky diesel aroma and flavor that will let everyone in the blast area that you’re toking up. Eventually, the high becomes creative and relaxing, but don’t expect to be sleeping on a Jet Fuel flight.

Regular users have been known to call this strain “the cocaine of marijuana,” while medical patients are more likely to call it a godsend for issues like stress, depression, and chronic fatigue. Most people’s first reaction? “Wow.”

Effects and Side Effects

Unlike most sativa-heavy strains (Jet Fuel is 70% sativa, 30% indica), you’ll be taxiing down the runway for a little while after you fire up a bowl; the head high doesn’t kick in immediately. When it does, though, you’ll definitely feel the power of Jet Fuel and start soaring above the clouds.

The experience begins with pressure felt between the eyes, followed by a potent blast of euphoria and energy. For some users, it will be a focused and creative high, while others — mostly those who keep hitting the pipe or joint — may feel the effects as floating, trippy, or psychedelic. Either way, Jet Fuel provides several hours of uplifting enjoyment.

This strain isn’t known for its strong body effects. But it does provide noticeable relaxation throughout the body, and the brain eventually follows suit. That’s when Jet Fuel’s energy, focus, and creativity can be put to good use if that’s your goal.

Otherwise, the uplifting feeling remains; it’s great for long conversations with friends (complete with giggling fits), or simply kicking back for lazy daydreaming. Jet Fuel is a very popular strain for daytime use, and wake-and-bakers often enjoy it even earlier. It’s not good at night, though, since there’s no way you’ll get to sleep for quite a while.

Anyone with existing anxiety issues should tread very lightly, however. Jet Fuel’s high THC content and strong Sativa effects may make those problems worse, and bring on panic attacks or paranoia. Inexperienced users may have the same experience, or they may become overwhelmed and dizzy. These smokers should start low and go slow if they’re determined to give this strain a try.

For others, dry eyes and throat are the side effects most commonly experienced. And the potency of Jet Fuel can leave users wiped out when the high finally wears off.

Positive Effects:

  • Energy: 5/5
  • Creative: 3/5
  • Pain: 3/5
  • Stress: 4/5
  • Sleep: 1/5
  • Mood: 5/5

Negative Effects:

  • Paranoid: 2/5
  • Dry Mouth: 4/5
  • Dry Eyes: 4/5
  • Lethargy: 1/5
  • Cough: 4/5

Bottom Line: Jet Fuel lets your brain soar, delivering a euphoric, energetic, and motivating head high, along with non-sedating, full-body relaxation that can make the cerebral effects focused and creative.

Benefits to Medical Conditions

The primary reason patients select Jet Fuel is for its uplifting effects. They find it quite useful for dealing with stress, depression and anxiety — although, as we’ve mentioned, some anxiety patients should avoid this strain because it has the potential to worsen symptoms rather than relieve them.

Jet Fuel is also used by those with tension headaches (because of its stress-relieving properties) and patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (because of the energy it provides). It’s less likely to make serious dents in serious pain issues.

Flavor and Aroma

You may never have smelled real jet fuel, but you’re certainly familiar with the scent of gasoline and diesel. That’s the aroma and flavor to expect from the Jet Fuel strain, not surprising since one of its parent strains is a strong diesel strain.

You’ll also notice some pine, lemon, sweetness, and skunk in the aroma and taste of the smoke, but pungent diesel is the overwhelming presence throughout the experience. It’s even quite strong in the weed’s aftertaste.

Flavor and Aroma Ratings:

  • Earthy: 4/5
  • Citrus: 3/5
  • Fruity: 1/5
  • Spice: 3/5
  • Wood: 4/5

Cannabinoids and Terpenes

Jet Fuel’s THC content averages around 20%, not the absolute highest you’ll find if you’re shopping around for potent flowers with high THC content, but still impressive. And this strain makes the most of the THC, combining it with strong sativa effects that send you sky-high. The amount of CBD and other cannabinoids in Jet Fuel is relatively low, unlikely to ever reach 1%.

The limonene, caryophyllene, and myrcene in the strain are the terpenes that combine to produce their powerful diesel aroma and flavor. Other terps present in high concentrations include pinene, terpinolene, and humulene.


Colorado’s 303 Seeds gets the credit for creating Jet Fuel. They crossed Sativa-dominant Aspen OG with High Country Diesel, a child of the well-known and potent original Diesel strain.

Aspen OG’s sweet taste doesn’t come through well in Jet Fuel’s aroma and taste, as it’s overwhelmed by the fuel of High Country Diesel. But the effects of the Jet Fuel high can largely be attributed to Aspen OG. The decision to breed these two strains was a great one.

Similar Strains to Jet Fuel

Other motivating strains that would be worth a try, if you can’t find Jet Fuel, include Purple Kush, Lemon Skunk, or Black Cherry Pie. Those looking for sativas with strong diesel characteristics might look for Sour Diesel, Chiesel, or if they’re experienced smokers, Bruce Banner.

Jet Fuel Strain Review: FAQ

Q: Is Jet Fuel an easy strain to find?
A: We’d put it into the “moderately easy” category. Not all dispensaries carry it, but 303 Seeds has made Jet Fuel seeds widely available. Lots of growers have taken advantage to grow the “real thing” instead of trying to come up with their own versions which can often be disappointing. The reason that not all producers plant Jet Fuel? The size of the harvest is usually on the low side.

Q: What about growing Jet Fuel at home?
A: The seeds are just as available to home growers as they are to commercial ones, so you’ll have no difficulty planting Jet Fuel in your own garden. The strain is rather sensitive to temperature and humidity, though, so best results require fully outfitted grow rooms and a willingness to attend diligently to the plants’ needs.
