This highly potent sativa (80:20 sativa/indica ratio) was named after a train engineer, of all people. On a foggy Mississippi night in 1900, Casey Jones prevented a massive catastrophe by stopping his passenger train in the nick of time; he was killed in the act. This is hardly the first time Jones has been honored as a cult hero; there are songs in his name and a character in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Appropriately, Casey Jones the weed works with dramatic effect. Reaching THC levels of 22%, it’s highly potent, and its sativa genes create a strong, energetic head high that spurs creativity – and maybe a little daring. The taste is citrusy and sweet, with earthy undertones. Casey Jones is best for anxiety and depression, as it provides a powerful mood boost. It’s also helpful in treating pain and low energy. As with many other strains, the most common adverse effects are cottonmouth and red eyes. Casey Jones, a cross between Oriental Express and East Coast Sour Diesel, is most popular in Amsterdam, Michigan, and the West Coast.
