Like many other medical strains, Jack Herer was also developed in Amsterdam during the 1990s. Its lineage can be traced back to a Sativa Haze and a Northern Lights Number 5 and Shiva Skunk cross. The strain is 55% Sativa and 45% Indica.
Our Top Picks
You can grow Jack Herer indoors or outdoors. However, you’ll produce better quality buds outdoors if you live in an area with warm fall weather. Temperatures between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit, such as the Mediterranean climate, are ideal. These plants grow bushy and like to stretch, so make sure you leave enough space between them. Since this is a Sativa-dominant strain it can be vulnerable to overfeeding. Keep a close eye on this. Finally, the flowering time of this strain is anywhere from 10 to 12 weeks and it can yield up to 500 grams per M2.
The effects of Jack Herer have the ability to improve your mood, promote feelings of joy, and invigorate you, making it the ideal daytime strain. When you first smoke it, you might feel a deep sense of well-being. Over time, the high can create lots of laughter. It’s like getting a double dose of medicine — cannabis and laughter. These are two of the best natural remedies around.
This well-known and admired strain has all the characteristics of a high-quality cannabis strain. Its lovely appearance and spicy peppery flavours combine with potent effects that leave users ‘over the moon’ with elation and joy. What’s not to love about that?
You’ve got to see the buds from this strain: they are some of the biggest in existence. With sativa phenotypes, resin-covered calyxes form at several points, lending the plants a wild appearance.
Effect, flavour and smell of Jack Herer® Feminized
The majority of phenotypes show distinct sativa growth behaviour, coupled with resin production and the lush flowering of an indica. Growers should be aware that these plants grow vigorously during the flowering stage. However, there is a more rare indica-dominated phenotype which does not spread as far and is altogether more compact.
Talking of resin: carefully cultivated buds glisten with a thick layer of THC-rich trichomes. Because this diamond-dusted appearance is maintained in the dried buds, they are extremely popular with sellers and smokers. If you examine a bud under the microscope, you will see that it is composed more from resin glands than from plant tissue.
As varied as the growth behaviour may be, in terms of effect, Jack Herer® is incredibly constant. The high-energy cerebral high is underlaid by a breathtaking body buzz. So don’t be surprised to feel the earth shake beneath your feet as your mind soars into the stratosphere. If you like weed with a high CBD content and few psychoactive effects, you should look to a different strain.
