Hello, lovelies! Today I am going to tell you all about how one of my favorite Sativa dominant strains, Jack Herer, came into being!
Those who have smoked Jack Herer before will know it by its fragrant orange and lemon aroma with a tease of earthy pine scents. Created by Sensi seeds in the 1980s or ’90s (sometimes stoners aren’t good with dates), this dense bud is named after lifelong cannabis activist and author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes, Jack Herer. The Emperor Wears No Clothes is still a powerful resource in the battle for the legalization and decriminalization of cannabis. In short, if you’re looking for a strain that is entrenched in the cannabis culture, look no further.
Now, the precise genetic makeup of this beautiful strain is a closely kept secret. Many believe Jack Herer to be the baby of a haze crossed with Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk. This genetic cocktail produces pale green to medium green, sticky buds that are more oval than round with a THC content ranging from 18% THC upwards of 24%THC. Granted, to the eye, this may not be one of the most striking, but the looks are more than made up for with the scent and smooth toke.
Jack Herer can have a quick onset and is found to be an uplifting, energetic high that can also provide relaxation to tired muscles. Some of the most common uses for this strain aside from recreational use are anxiety, depression, and migraines. Jack Herer is also good for a lovely wake and bake in my experience!
