Effects & Usage



9 Pound Hammer (aka 9 lb Hammer, Nine Pound Hammer) is a very apt name for a strain that can knock you out completely. This indica-dominant hybrid with 18-23% THC is known for its highly relaxing sedative effects. The potent strain finds its lineage in the harmonious fusion of Jack the Ripper, Hell’s Angel OG, and the delightful Gooberry.


The 9 Pound Hammer hits strong and fast, immediately inducing a deep sense of relaxation. While it does not flaunt potent cerebral effects, it will still give you a gentle euphoria. Combined with the powerful bodily ease, this makes for a dreamy and happy state where you feel wrapped in a warm, comforting cocoon. All physical tension and stress will dissipate, leaving you mellow and sleepy.

The strain is such a mighty relaxant that a couchlock is almost guaranteed. You will sink into your chair, released of worry and pain, without much care in the world.

Therefore, the 9 lb Hammer will be perfect for those evenings after a long and stressful day. It is guaranteed you will not remember anything that troubled you a mere few hours ago. You will most enjoy it on your own or with a loved one, during a movie night or with a chill novel in your hand.

The 9 Pound Hammer offers many potential benefits for those seeking relief from various conditions. Its potent analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, bolstered by pinene and caryophyllene, can relieve chronic pain, migraines and arthritis. The strain’s ability to combat stress and anxiety can also provide inner peace for those grappling with mental health challenges. With its high myrcene content, the strain can also help those struggling with insomnia, enabling deep and restful sleep.

Side effects

While the 9 Pound Hammer is generally well-tolerated, some users may experience mild side effects such as the dry mouth and eyes and occasional dizziness. Paranoia and anxiety are rare, but it is still crucial to remember the potential of high-THC strains to induce them. Therefore, consume this potent strain responsibly and adjust the dosage according to individual tolerance levels.

The strain is highly sedating and only recommended as an evening smoke. Do not use it in the morning unless you want to spend the whole day glued to your bed.

Taste & Smell


9 lb Hammer flowers are light green, occasionally showcasing purple notes. These tiny buds are tightly packed together, heavily covered in resinous trichomes. They have a pungent, appetising scent, a mix of sweet and sour lime and earth notes.

The smoke is smooth and creamy, boasting earthy, piney flavours on the inhale and fruity grape and berry notes on the exhale. These tend to linger in your mouth, leaving a pleasant aftertaste.
