Jack Herer is a blissful, uplifting Sativa with mild body effects. This famous strain was named after legendary cannabis activist, Jack Herer. Dutch breeders couldn’t have created a better strain to pay homage to such an influential figure. It’s one of the most popular marijuana strains in the world today, with good reason.
This strain is one of the most famous Sativa-dominant hybrids around. Titled after the legendary cannabis activist with the same name, the Jack Herer strain is the perfect tribute to such an honorable man. The author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes, Herer spent his life fighting for cannabis legalization and regulation of industrial hemp.
Though a cannabis lover, Herer had an environmentalist side. He was passionate about the use of hemp as a renewable resource. From fuel to fiber, Herer knew that the plant could do it all. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2010 at age 70, nearly 20 years after his tribute strain was created in the Netherlands. Yet, his legend and contributions continue to live on. Due to its namesake, this strain continues to teach fledgling cannabis consumers about Herer’s lifelong efforts.
The Sativa is known for its intellectual, creative, uplifting mental effects while still providing a mellow body high. Expect to find yourself relaxed and a little philosophical after a few puffs of this legendary strain. A three-way cross between Haze, Shiva Skunk, and Northern Lights #4, Herer has all of the happy, cerebral effects of a Sativa with a light dusting of classic Indica effects.
As pleasing to the taste as it is popular, this strain offers marijuana consumers a combination of herbal, almost sage flavors with hints of earthy lemon. The aromas are similarly citrusy with pepper, orange and even floral bouquets — a real treat for marijuana connoisseurs and newcomers alike.
Marijuana growers can obtain this strain’s seeds from the strain’s creator Sensi, or they can obtain mature clippings from developed, healthy plants from which clones can be grown. Marijuana farmers can choose between the four different Jack Herer varietals that Sensi has on offer.
Though the THC content can get quite high (18 to 23%), the overall effect of this strain isn’t crippling. An extremely well-bred flower, Jack Herer’s genetics provide a great combination of light body high and spirited sativa.
For recreational users, this strain is excellent for a night out or a daytime adventure with friends.
