One of the best know strains in North America, Jack Herer is a must-smoke strain. This strain honours the memory of longtime cannabis activist and medical marijuana user, Jack Herer. Originally bred by Sensi Seeds in the mid 1990s, this strain crosses the genetics of Haze, Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk. Jack Herer is so popular most growers have bred their own phenotype of the strain and has lent its own genetics to strains such as Jack the Ripper and Jack Skellington.
This stoner-staple is noted to have notes of spicy citrus and pine with hints of earthy sage. The smooth and pleasant smoke tastes similarly herbal. Jack Herer has medium-sized buds are a lush green sparkled with trichomes.
If you’re looking for a strain that will fast-track a boost of energy and elevate your mood Jack Herer is the strain for you. This strain provides a clear-headed and focused high that will keep you alert and energized for hours. Jack Herer is a favourite strain of artists as the high is often purported to give the user a blast of creativity. Many users with anxiety will often use this strain to help them stay peppy and chatty in social situations. “Stimulated” would be a common term thrown around if you were to ask those that use this strain regularly, although Jack Herer is noted for not generally being an overwhelming strain at all. The mellow high is great for minor bouts of stress, anxiety, and depression. Because of the cereberal-focused high it can also help provide relief from migraines. It is not recommended for those suffering from insomnia, as this stimulating strain can actually keep you awake, making this more of a daytime treat than an evening medication. If you’re looking for a morning wake n bake classic we suggest giving Jack a try.
