Jack Herer Strain Overview

Everybody needs a friend called “Jack Herer.” He looks charming, smells alluring, and loves to make you feel good. Named after famous cannabis activist Jack Herer, author of “The Emperor Wears No Clothes,” this sublime cultivar flourished to prominence sometime in the 1980s or 90s. Breeders at Sensi Seeds made a wise choice by choosing Jack’s parents, a three-way cross between Northern Lights #5, Skunk #1, and Haze. These genetics passed on a variety of magnificent attributes to this strain, including a high THC content in the realm of 18–24% THC. 

Certain Jack Herer phenotypes climb to THC levels upwards of 27%, making this strain an attractive indulgence among adult-use consumers seeking a cerebral massage. Premium Jack also provides an aromatic massage, with his sour citrus, herbal, and woody terpenes adding some extra “oomph” to the overall experience. JH looks as good as he smells, with his dusty green nugs plastered in THC-rich resinous trichomes.
