JACK HERER (28g)
The Scoop: Jack Herer is a lofty and inspired hybrid that was first cultivated by one of the resourceful breeders at Sensi Seeds. Perpetuating the notoriety of its deceased hemp-activist namesake, Jack is thought to be a cross between Shiva Skunk, Northern Lights #5, and an enigmatic Haze hybrid. Debatably considered one of the most victorious varieties competing in modern cannabis festivals, Jack Herer has taken home multiple HTCC trophies over its celebrated 23-year lifespan.
The Result: A cerebral pacifier, Jack’s highly-valued CBD content soothes the high-strung mind and harmonizes our hyperactive essence. While Jack, a.k.a. The Emperor of Hemp is no longer with us, his book, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes” continues to be instructive for future generations – much like Jack’s strain.
Genetics: Haze x Shiva Skunk x Northern Lights #5
Scent: A fiery Sativa with a distinctive sweet side, well-grown Jack provides for a wide range of aromas. Spicy yet tropical, the essence of this strain is truly unleashed when given the slightest squeeze. Tantalizing the olfactory system since the early 90s, Jack’s collective terpene profile set an incredibly high standard for other hybrids to follow.
Taste: Like starting the day with a cup of spicy Chai tea, the first hit stimulates the taste buds and arouses an insightful thought process. Traces of black pepper, tropical fruit rinds, and sweet lime flood the mouth and energize the mind.
Effect: A motivational strain, Jack’s combination of terpenes and cannabinoids enables critical thinking to flourish. Freed from the static noise of the outside world, the mind is energized and now views the world through a creative lens.
Strain Background: An industry secret known only to the cultivators at Sensi Seeds, Jack’s genetic downline has historically been like Fight Club – no one talks about it. Considered a three-way hybrid of Shiva Skunk, Northern Lights #5 (NL5) and Haze, online sources suggest Sensi first cultivated Jack by crossing “a male from their NL5 x SK1 seedline (AKA Shiva Skunk) and backcrossing him to the NL5 female cutting. As Sensi purchased Neville’s breeding plants, they had both the Haze A and C males, so it is likely that they then chose a female NL5 x (NL5xSK1) plant and pollinated it with one of the Haze males to create Jack Herer.”
Medical Uses: A natural medicine of the highest order, Jack Herer’s collective compounds help minimize daily stress and bouts of periodic depression. An outstanding wake and bake strain, Jack also fuels the fatigued mind while relaxing painful joints.
