Strain Feature: All About Jack Herer
Jack Herer Medical Marijuana:
Jack Herer Medical Marijuana is a popular sativa-dominant marijuana strain that got its name from the “Emperor of Hemp,” Jack Herer. Jack was a pro-cannabis activist who wrote a book called “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.” This non-fiction book highlights the multiple benefits and uses of the cannabis plant.
The twelfth edition was published in 2010, and it continues to be cited in arguments for Cannabis rescheduling and legalization efforts. This book is considered to be what started the cannabis and hemp revolution. Jack Herer was also one of the founders and the Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP) organization.
This strain is a combination of a haze hybrid and a cross of Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk. It was created in the Netherlands in the mid-1990s and eventually sold by Dutch pharmacies as a recognized strain with medical properties. It has since won multiple awards for both its potency and overall quality.
While Sensi Seeds guards the exact lineage, it is commonly accepted that Jack Herer Medical Marijuana is a hybrid of Shiva Skunk #1, Northern Lights #5, and Haze. Three of the four main phenotypes are Sativa-influenced, and the fourth leans more towards Indica.
Jack Herer’s Sativa phenotypes also produce a good yield both per square foot or per plant when cultivated carefully, but it is rare for these crops to be sold commercially. Many cultivators are hesitant to share the strain with anyone outside of their close circle of friends because of how appreciated of a strain Jack is.
Jack Herer’s THC Potency is usually around 17-24%.
Jack Herer produces buds that are dank, dense, light green with rusty orange colored hairs. This strain is almost always covered in frosty, sticky trichomes.
If it is adequately cured, your nose is hit with a deep floral and spicy aroma when you pull apart the flowers. When burnt, it gives off a clean, herbal scent that can be compared to sage. The smell is not overly pungent, but it does leave behind a lingering aroma.
Users can expect similar notes to the flower’s aroma when tasting it. An additional underlying sweetness leaves taste buds happy. During the inhale, you might taste herbal flavors that are earthy, woodsy, and piney.
Lab testing has shown that Jack Herer has high amounts of beta-myrcene, alpha-pinene, and alpha-humulene.
