Super Sativa: An In-Depth Look at In The Flow’s Chemmy Jones
What is Chemmy Jones?
Chemmy Jones is a super sativa cannabis strain, which was made famous by In The Flow, a values-driven, family-owned boutique cannabis cultivator from Boulder, Colorado. With their knowledge and guidance, we have begun growing their strains in Arkansas. We started out growing nine strains, and one of the class favorites is definitely the super sativa Chemmy Jones!
Other growers cultivate Chemmy Jones, however, In The Flow has a particularly good cut of the strain. The growers at In The Flow pride themselves on being observant, and it's this careful attention to detail that makes Chemmy Jones by In The Flow so special compared to other sativa cannabis strains.
Chemmy Jones Strain Information
With famous ancestors consisting of cannabis strains Oriental Express, East Coast Sour Diesel, and OG Kush, it's no surprise that Chemmy Jones is a very potent sativa with a plethora of health benefits. Hailing from the legendary cannabis strains Chemdawg D and Casey Jones, Chemmy Jones is a sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that produces strong results thanks to its high potency of cannabinoids and terpenes.
The Chemmy Jones marijuana plant announces itself from afar with a distinctive stank as it has the pungent diesel smell of Chemdawg, balanced by Casey Jones' floral notes. Many say the prominent smell of Chemmy Jones is a chemical/diesel fragrance that some liken to the smell of mothballs. Diesel isn't the only aroma, however. Tropical and sweet notes can also be detected to round out this fragrant profile.

Terpenes over THC: Chemmy Jones’ Bouquet of Terps
You know those fantastic smells you love wafting off your cannabis? Those are terpenes. Terpenes are the aromatic oils found in marijuana that give the various cannabis strains their distinctive aromas and flavors. Why does this matter, you may ask? Besides their aromatic qualities, terpenes also have therapeutic properties which help provide medical cannabis patients with many medicinal and healing benefits. Terpenes play with the other plant compounds found in cannabis, enhancing the effects of a cannabis strain through a process known as the Entourage Effect. So the kind of terpenes found in your cannabis is important!
Cannabis terpenes vary from strain to strain, but they can also vary from batch to batch, with where the marijuana plant is grown significantly impacting the terpene profile. For example, the most dominant cannabis terpenes found in the Colorado-grown Chemmy Jones cannabis plant are myrcene, β-caryophyllene, linalool, limonene, and α-pinene. However, our first harvest here at our cannabis dispensary in Arkansas yielded terpene dominance of myrcene, β-caryophyllene, limonene, humulene, linalool, and the rare terpene, eucalyptol.
Myrcene is the most common terpene produced by cannabis plants, with its aromatic compounds consisting of herbal, musk, cloves, and citrus. Besides various marijuana strains, myrcene can be naturally found in other plants, such as parsley, hops, citrus, mango, bay leaves, lemongrass, and eucalyptus.
Typically known for its “couch-lock” effect, the terpene myrcene is classic to more indica-dominant cannabis strains. Known as the stoner's favorite, myrcene increases our brain's ability to soak up more THC by reducing the resistance of the blood-brain barrier. It is an ideal terpene for treating conditions such as insomnia and chronic pain due to its relaxing and sedative nature. Other therapeutic properties of myrcene include antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and anti-diabetic.
Caryophyllene is the only terpene known to interact with the endocannabinoid system. It produces a spicy aroma and is commonly found in other plants, such as Thai basil and cloves, as well as cinnamon and black pepper. Fun fact: caryophyllene is a terpene often used in chewing gum recipes.
The terpene caryophyllene is known for various medicinal benefits, including providing tension relief and calming effects. Studies have shown that cannabis strains high in caryophyllene may provide several potential health benefits for many medical issues, such as arthritis, neuropathic pain, gastrointestinal disorders including ulcers, and autoimmune diseases.
Limonene is another prevalent terpene found in cannabis, as well as other plants like rosemary, juniper, and peppermint. It generates a powerful citrus aroma and is the dominant terpene found in citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, and oranges. It is a common ingredient used in cleaning formulas due to its refreshing smell and antibacterial properties.
Limonene has been found to energize, have mood-altering effects, and help relieve stress. It is an antifungal, and other plants use it as a natural insecticide to ward off predators. The terpene limonene may provide potential health benefits in protecting against cancer and has also been found to boost the immune system, aid in digestion, soothe acid reflux, and help with weight loss.
Humulene is a terpene close in nature to caryophyllene and was previously classified as a-caryophyllene. Like its close relative, the terpene humulene releases an earthy aroma, with other aromatic compounds consisting of wood, herbal hops, and spice. Humulene is commonly found in beer, as well as other plants like ginseng and sage. Like many terpenes, humulene is found to aid in relaxation and tension relief, contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and has shown medicinal properties of being anti-tumor and helping terminate cancer cells.
Linalool is the terpene that gives lavender and chamomile their soothing, floral scents. It is found in other plants like roses and basil and is often used in cleaning products, skincare, and cosmetics due to its antimicrobial properties. The terpene linalool may help ease anxiety with its calming effects and is commonly used in essential oils for these therapeutic qualities. It is known to produce an analgesic effect and sedative effect, help with sleep and seizures, and can act as an anti-inflammatory and antidepressant.
Eucalyptol is a rare terpene found in the marijuana plant and is also found in other plants such as eucalyptus trees, bay leaves, cardamom, tea tree, and sage. It produces a refreshing mint aroma and has a cooling effect. Studies have shown that the terpene eucalyptol has several potential health benefits and may help with sinus infections and chronic pain, as well as decrease blood pressure and improve cognitive function for those with dementia. It is a common ingredient found in many brands of mouthwash and cough suppressants and has been found to help improve breathing issues like asthma and act as an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic.
