Marijuana Jack Herer Strain

Origins, Genetics, History

Jack Herer Type: Jack Herer is a hybrid of the following strains:

  • Shiva Skunk (Indica)
  • Haze (Sativa)
  • Northern Lights # 5 (Indica)

Jack Herer starts with a well-known Sativa called Haze and is crossed then with Shiva Skunk and Northern Lights #5 to provide strong Indica properties and a veritable coat of sticky white trichomes and resins.  Jack Herer is a child of the mid 1990s.  It was bred in the Netherlands by highly noted cultivators Sensi Seeds.  The purpose was to create a highly medicinal strain by combining the clear headed Sativa stimulation of Haze with the overwhelming bounty of resins of Shiva Skunk and Northern Lights #5.  This succeeded in creating a hybrid that has won numerous awards and has been highly prescribed by doctors in the Netherlands as well as becoming very popular with recreational users.  It quickly spread to weed hot spots all over the world and finally to personal growers who produced their own unique takes on Jack Herer.  With the end of weed prohibition in some states in the US, with medical use being the most accepted use, Jack Herer has emerged as a prime candidate for doctor recommendations as well as recreational use.

Appearance and Smell

The Jack Herer plants are relatively tall.  Jack Herer plants look as if having been artificially dipped in white powder, so bountiful are its THC-rich, CBD rich, and terpenoid storing trichomes.  Hairs of pistils and stigmas of light yellow to orange encircle the green buds peeking out through the thick maze of powdery trichomes.  Jack Herer has the fragrance and flavor of pine, lemon, earthiness, sweetness, fruitiness, orange, and a hint of spice.

How to Grow Jack Herer Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings

Growing weed from Jack Herer cannabis seeds and cuttings is said to be of an easy to moderate difficulty level.  This plant will need a dry, Mediterranean climate to flourish.  It has strong disease resistance and so it does not need babysitting.  It does require a basic level of gardening skills.  It grows best outdoors, so choosing the soil, fertilizers like Flower Power, and location to get the appropriate exposure to sunlight is necessary for the grower.

Indoors, cultivators of the famous Jack Herer weed will need to allow the plant to flower in eight to ten weeks.  The growers reward is about 18 ounces per meter squared of the revered strain.

Outdoors, Jack Herer will flourish in a sunny, dry, Mediterranean-like area.  In late September to early October the strain will be ready to release its bounty of about 18 ounces per plant.

Just vaped about 200 mg, it was awesome, man. I loved the citrus earthly smell with a hint of a cool pine… Turned on some tunes on my iPhone and had a blast… A great calm and uplifting experience… I’m wondering if I should smoke it before work, maybe it’ll relax me just enough to get by without too much stress… Looking forward to doing that!

by Stella on Jack Herer Marijuana Strain

Liked Jack Herer weed a lot. It has a wonderful earthly taste and a pleasant high that send me down the memory line. I began remembering the good times I had in college and the time I signed up for helicopter classes a couple of years ago but never took them… Definitely a potent weed because no others before it had me remembering all this stuff so vividly. Nice experience!

by Hazel on Jack Herer Marijuana Strain

The things that I remember about smoking Jack Herer strain is its delicious pine/woody aroma and a potent effect. One time I tried a couple of hours before work because I knew it could do wonders for my concentration and it made my experience at my boring job quite bearable. Besides, I was able to do a bit more than I usually do, so no one suspected anything. So if you have some difficulties with focusing, be sure to give Jack Herer a try.

by Carter on Jack Herer Marijuana Strain

Being a big fan of Haze I had to try Jack Herer cannabis. It’s a good sativa, and it gave a lot of energy but to be completely honest I was a bit disappointed because I didn’t get depression-combating effects I expected. Don’t get me wrong, Herer is a delicious weed but I think I’m going to stick with Haze to help cope with my depression.

by Paisley on Jack Herer Marijuana Strain

Many of my friends who smoke weed recommended trying the Jack Herer Orchid vape kit. It’s a bit pricey but I finally got it the other day. Amazing technology, my friends! The device puts out a lot of smoke, way more than most of the vapes I’ve tried before. The taste was awesome and I got a lot of energy while smoking. Should have been painting or writing something, too, because it definitely gets my creative juices going, too!

by Skylar on Jack Herer Marijuana Strain

My experience growing Jack Herer plants was good even though the strain was one of my first grows. The plants flowered very fast and were very easy to grow indoors. In fact, the flowering period was just 8 weeks. Thanks to the 12/12 lighting schedule that was recommended, the plants developed a large cola a minimal branches but that didn’t affect the yield a lot. The final yield for 4 plants was about 260 grams. I think that’s pretty good for a beginner grower like me. Haven’t had the chance to smoke now, so ready for the effects!
