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.

    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.

    I never had a kush which delivers an euphoric feeling like this sativa. It makes it very good in dealing with depression as listed on leafly. The woody flavor makes the whole experience better.

    What suprises me most with this cannabis is it power to cure asthma. When a friend mentioned this I was in doubt and I had to try it. Worked more than I thought and am still amazed by that effect. Its offers more than just getting high and happy.
