A legendary plant in the community, Jack Herer is a sativa-dominant (55% sativa, 45% indica) award-winning cannabis strain, including nine Cannabis Cup titles! It gets its namesake after the lifelong marijuana activist and author of 1985 book The Emperor Wears No Clothes. This is a quality popular strain that is much loved by recreational and medical marijuana patients alike for its unique attributes, including blissful medical-grade effects and a distinctive aroma.
Jack Herer is a premium hybrid that is the result of an incredible three-way cross of Haze, Northern Lights #5, and Shiva Skunk. The genetics gives this strain a pleasant cerebral quality as well as some impressive resin production. THC content can range from 18-24%, with less than 1% CBD, and the impressive terpene profile includes limonene, caryophyllene, pinene, humulene, myrcene, ocimene, and linalool.
This easy-to-grow strain can be grown in any environment and is a forgiving option for novice growers. Outdoors, this plant does best in Mediterranean-like climates, with crops ready to harvest in mid to late October growers can expect outdoor yields of around 500-550g/plant. As these monster plants can reach as tall as 8 feet in certain conditions, indoor cultivations would benefit from topping and flowering the plants shortly after they take root. Flowering time can be anywhere between 7-10 weeks depending on conditions, with yields of around 500-550g/m2.
Visually, Jack Here has light green leaves and elongated, dense buds, which are sticky with trichomes. Although this strain may lack a little in terms of stunning visual appeal, it more than compensates for this with the incredible aroma. The flowers have a complex, rich floral bouquet that offers up some citrus hints of orange and lemon zest, with a slightly peppery note. When smoked, the flowers have a more herbal quality, reminiscent of sage and pine.
Consumers typically note the effects as being quite balanced, with an energetic quality well blended with blissful, clear, and creative attributes. It has a physical quality that is relaxing but also a cerebral creative quality that allows consumers to be both talkative and attentive. The high comes on quickly with an energetic and euphoric rush, which transforms into a pleasant body sensation that is relaxing but not necessarily couch-locking. The easy and well-balanced high makes it a perfect choice for newbies.
