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.
Note: These are just medicinal effects that people have experienced from using this strain. It will vary from person to person.
1 – Chronic Pain Relief
Cannabis contains a chemical makeup, such as terpenes and cannabinoids, that may help to reduce all sorts of pain, such as arthritis, restless leg syndrome, psoriasis, and much more.
2 – Contribute to Weight Loss
At this time, there is no evidence that suggests cannabis directly causes weight loss however, it may indirectly affect weight loss by potentially helping specific body issues, such as chronic pain or poor sleeping habits, that may be contributing to higher body weight.
3 – Prevent and Manage Diabetes
The correlation between cannabis marijuana and diabetes prevention is inconclusive. Marijuana has anti-inflammatory properties and may stabilize blood sugars which can potentially manage or prevent diabetes, but it should not be the only form of treatment. Always consult with your doctor or a medical professional first.
Cannabis topicals may also be used to relieve neuropathic pain, as well as tingling in the hands and feet.

Smoking cannabis may be a healthier option than smoking cigarettes. Cannabis edibles are a much safer alternative to smoking however, some recent studies have shown smoking cannabis may increase a person’s lung capacity.

Jack Herer is my morning medicine. I take it daily every morning before work, and it turns me into a happy, focused, energized person completely capable of working and talking to people without tripping over my tongue. I was severely depressed for several months, then I started taking Jack every morning and my world view changed completely. And btw, reading the other reviews makes me shake my head in disapproval. For one thing, Jack is a sativa-dominant strain that will put your head in the clouds and it has just the perfect amount of indica in it to keep your feet on the ground. Do not expect it to work well as a sleep aid, people! Indicas are typically good for sleep and anxiety, sativas are typically good for energy and depression. Doing a sativa strain even early in the morning has affected my sleep pater that night, so be careful and make sure to have some indica to help you come down off the sativa high later on. Another thing that perplexed me, was reading about that guy who did a bunch of it in Amsterdam. Jack is a SUPER potent strain, I do not recommend doing like that guy did, he obviously did too much. Sativas can give you a bad trip, so to speak, if you do too much, at least for us types who have issues with anxiety. Jack can absolutely help you focus, if you do like one nice big hit off a vaporizer and let it ride. If you do too much you’ll feel like you’re on crack, at least that’s been my experience with all sativa-dominants. Sativas are not to be taken lightly. It’s not like indica where you can do bowl after bowl till you pass out. Sativa will energize you and speed up your thoughts, making it great for depression but not great for sleep aid or anxiety. Jack just happens to have the perfect blend of both to treat stress, depression, anxiety, and lack of motivation. This strain replaced my need for ADD and OCD prescription pills. Thank you,
I am known by any one who will listen to be a great lover of kushes to deal with a chronic nausea issue and social anxiety. Since changing LP’s have had lots of different choices to explore to control health issues. I thought I had already had the best of everything until I tried Jack Herer. It is my all time day time fave. It is energizing, but at the same time calming. Since I usually have high anxiety it’s important to have a good balance in your choices, and normally this means mixing for me. But with this strain for some reason, it is great on it’s own or as a helper depending on what your day brings and your level of discomfort. On a bad day it’s one of my recipes, Jack and a really great Kush and perhaps a dash of some CBD. A game changer!!! Thanks to Tilray for having great selections and quality.
This is one of my very favorite strains! Jack has never even made me tense. A reliable calm and uplifting experience that doesn’t cloud my mind. Functional daytime medicine. I would heavily recommend this strain to anyone dealing with PTSD, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and Chemo. Honestly, if I where diagnosed with cancer tomorrow, my 3rd move would be to find Jack Herer in flower and clone. Do yourself a favor and go find some, a very special strain.
Wonderful taste. Gives you just the right amount of energy to get you through the day while also helping manage anxiety and stress
Makes me feel content and oblivious to people around me and what they are saying to me.
