Jack Herer is an Indica strain, which received its name after a famous cannabis-legalization activist Jack Herer. It is a nine-time winner of the Cannabis Cup that is also known for its bizarre and remarkable effects. The strain owes the creation to famous Sensi Seeds from the Netherlands back in the mid-80s or early 90s. Unfortunately, the exact genetics are kept in secret, but it is considered to be a cross between Northern Lights, Haze, and Shiva Skunk.

This cannabis strain contains an average THC level that ranges between 17%-20% and a small CBD level of about 0.9%-1.4%. Jack Herer can become a sensible option for novices due to its lack of severe negative effects. It is a wake and bake strain, which is the best for morning and daytime consumption. But it is a poor choice to smoke it before bed, as it just won’t let one fall asleep.

Usually, the flowers emit citrus and lemon scent with peppery tones. Another property of this stain is an unusual flavor. The pungent herbal taste delivers a chilly, refreshing feeling to the throat, in addition to a durable presence of citrusy hints. When the buds are burnt, they release a distinct floral aroma, which reminds of sage.

Typical Effects

Right with the first puff, a potent head buzz provides an energizing, mind-clearing influence. The high increases focus, creativity and purifies from unnecessary thoughts. After some time, the body will also catch up with a calming sensation without affecting its functionality. On top of that, a feeling of euphoria and ease can result in an engaging conversation or meditations.

At the same time, this weed can alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression. It is also known to have relieving effects when dealing with migraines and body pains. The side effects are mostly similar to other strains, so the only thing to avoid is overconsumption. But some reviewers state that it is possible to feel an increased frequency of heartbeats. Again, it is important to mention that it is a bad idea to treat insomnia with this marijuana.

Growing Information

Fortunately for growers, the seeds are available for purchase on the Internet. The difficulty of growing this plant is moderate due to the necessity of regular trimming and its climate requirements. It can be grown indoors or outdoors. When raising indoors, the flowering cycle takes about 10 weeks, and the plant requires constant trimming due to its height. For outdoor cultivation, it demands a Mediterranean climate with a temperature of about 72-80 degrees Fahrenheit. The harvest time is during mid and late October.

Jack Herer Strain Cannabinoids

THC Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component. 19 - 21%
CBD Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps. 0.76 - 0.96%

Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. 0.33 - 0.9%
CBG Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure. 0.23 - 1.44%
CBN Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss. 0.18 - 0.32%
THCV Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects.

The high is super awesome. It makes me feel calm then the relaxation begins to set in. The high does not render me useless or unconscious. Instead it makes my mind clear and allows me to make open-minded decisions.

A perfect sativa dominant breed. The taste is great- it has this blend of pine, earthly and woody taste that makes it all natural. Don’t even get me started on the flavor, it is f**king lush. The after taste is to live for.

It is very good at reducing chronic pain. This is one of the traits listed on allbud. It works for all level of pain. It may be general body pain due to a long and stressful day. It may also be a chronic pain such as cancer pain. It interacts with pain receptors and blocks its pathway , therefore alleviating pain.

I am a very sensitive person so, I usually feel nauseated. Sometime, it could be several weeks after taking a prescribed medication and the horrible taste still lingers at the back of my throat. This dope rids me of nausea. The sweet and lemon scent leaves a refreshing aftertaste in my mouth.

This is a very useful sativa breed especially medically. It addresses a lot of medical problems that science has not been able to thoroughly provide answers for. ADH is taken care of with minimal to zero side effects.

There exists a rather high number of strains which derive from this kind of plant, the most known being Jack the Ripper, or Jack Skellington, both for their quirky names, as for their features.
Usually, for the indoor crop, flowering happens starting with the 8th week, up to the 10th. When grown on the outside, it usually flowers in mid to late October.
