We were proud to announce the release of our all-new Ignite hybrid range - and so you can imagine how pumped we are to now present our two latest, all-new strains of Ignite premium sativa: Premium Jack and Sour Diesel.

But hold on a second. Some newbies out there are asking just what a sativa is - and that’s a great question. You should know what it is you’re buying and have as much info on all the strains first. According to our good friends at Leafly, sativa refers to “tall, narrow-leaf varieties of cannabis, thought to induce energizing effects.” But the bottom line difference is to be found in the cannabinoids and terpenes – and what that means is that, despite common opinion, not all sativas will energize you and not all indicas will send you to sleep.

Sativa’s defining elements are:

  • a mental high
  • alertness
  • its uplifting and euphoric
  • its creative boost
  • increased energy
  • it is best for daytime use.

So now that you the basics on sativa, read about our two brand new strains below. Or, if you’re already in “the know”, you can check them out first-hand a fine Ignite retailer near you. Just a word of advice: please take it slow, as sativas tend to deliver powerful alertness that may tip into an overwhelming sensation for some users.


ignite sativa premium jack


Premium Jack

Our first new sativa strain is Premium Jack – but if we told you who Jack was, we’d have to kill you. Just kidding. It’s Jack Herer. It’s got a spicy and pine-scented aroma, so you know right off the bat you’re dealing with something special and serious. We’re not messing around. It’s got a total THC count of 16.1% and a range between 16-23%. The THCa is a solid 17.3%.

With Premium Jack, you’re getting a well-known Sativa dominant strain – one that’s coveted for its phenomenal resin production, an instantly uplifting high, and sharp, sweet, pine flavors. Now, we’re not gonna give up all the company secrets, so we won’t go into its full lineage - but the strain is a cross between Northern Lights, Skunk, and Haze. Nice, right?

Jack Herer, as you may have heard, is one of the planet’s most popular and prevalent strains. It’s a great start to the day too, allowing you to keep focused and clear while at the same time boosting your creative juices. We describe it as a stratospheric, cerebral high that’s underpinned by a breathtaking body buzz.

The terps (or terpenes, defined here) we use in Premium Jack are pinene, caryophyllene and citrus – and we think this one is gonna be your new daytime favorite.


ignite sativa sour diesel


Sour Diesel

The second brand new Sativa strain we’re introducing to our range is Sour Diesel. It’s got a total THC count of 21.7% and a range of 19-25% - with a THCa of 24.4%. Expect an aroma that’s spicy,citrus and reminiscent of gasoline – but most of all expect a mental high with some subtle physical indica relaxation. In fact, it’s this awesome blend of body and mental high that makes it so popular with both recreational users and medical users.

You’ll know it’s Sour Diesel from its chunky calyxes, fire-orange pistils, and the fuel-like chemical smell of its flowers. This ain’t messing around – it’s gonna hit and hit hard. In fact, its combination of mental and somatic effects can act as quite the aphrodisiac in certain situations for some...or so we’ve been told!

The terps we use in Sour Diesel are Caryophyllene, Myrcene, Humulene, and Bisabolol. All you’ll need is a couple of hits to send you reeling into a humming headspace that’s both clear and focused. And your creative neurons will fire off like a rocket!

Which sativa strain will you get first?* Which one has you jonesing for an eighth right now? Well you don’t have to choose – get both! You can find them at your nearest authorized Ignite dispensary. We can’t wait to hear what you think of them too.
