Let Jack give you a smack!
Jack Herer, or the “Emperor of Hemp”, has earned legendary status in the cannabis word due to his decriminalization efforts. Oh, he’s also got a strain named after him and it’s one of the greatest of all time.
Like many before me, acquiring the strain Jack Herer led me to delve into why such a great strain is named after such an equally great man. Jack Herer was one of the biggest Hemp advocates, writing many books and articles on its benefits. He also claimed that the US government has been deliberately hiding the proof of the medical and economical benefits of cannabs from their own citizens. Sensi Seeds created the strain in his honour, and it has gone on to win numerous cannabis awards. The strain created by combining a Haze hybrid with a Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk cross.
The strain is described as a sativa heavy hybrid, and is one of the best strains for morning users. For me, it hit heavy in the head and eyes, while not giving any sort of couch-lock feeling within the first 15-30 minutes of smoking. After the initial head high effects wear off relaxation usually begins to take over, but if you want to fight it and get stuff done, you’ll still be able to do so. An all round great social strain and morning medicine.
When smoked from a bong or joint, Jack Herer gives a piney/wood like smell. The smoke is smooth and a lovely creamy white colour. Definitely in my top ten strain tastes.
In the vape
The amazingly strong smell of Jack Herer is accompanied by a pure tasting pine/woody vapour which goes down smoothly. A small amount goes a long way with this strain, so it’s great for those who like to conserve.
This strain is a real beauty. Its dark toned leaves are covered in thick coatings of bright green crystals. Even touching this strain can cause masses of crystals to be stuck to your fingers. If you’re a person who likes collecting kief, you’ll love this strain. The nugs are thin and elongated as well as extremely dense.
There’s no doubt that this strain is worthy to bear the name of such a legend in the marijuana world. Jack Herer will always go down as one of my all time favourite strains. If you see it available, give it a go! Let Jack give you a smack!
