Genetics and General Information
Jack Herer is easily one of the best-known strains in America. Originating in California, this sativa honors the memory of Jack Herer the man, a longtime local cannabis activist and medical marijuana user. It’s not quite as strong as its popularity might suggest, but the high is heady and distinctive. Jack Herer has a unique aroma and taste with hints of pine and trees. The sativa high is happy, bubbly, and euphoric, spurring energy and creativity. Jack Herer is ideal for errands and other daytime activities.
I had written a proper review on this strain and I don’t know where it went! Total bummer. I’ll try and write one again and I have a sample out to Troy for a review from him. That being said, this is good Jack. That familiar smell, a little like pine-sol but more natural and inviting. A nice sweet taste and smooth smoke emit from these lovely light green buds once set ablaze.
The effects of Jack are well known and one of my all time favirite strains. I took a few hours to decompress the first Sunday night we had this strain. A couple of hits and I was instantly taken to a very happy place. Light, euphoric and happy is how I usually describe Jack and this batch is no different. I nursed about 3 bowls over several hours and just had a joyous and epic video game session.
On a more personal note, Jack Herer, whom this strain is named after was someone a really admired when I was younger. He seemed to be a kind soul and absultely was a strong advocate for legalizing marijuana. He passed away over a decade ago but I can’t help to think that he is smiling somewhere seeing how far MJ rights have advanced in no small part thanks to brave leaders like him who pushed back against unjust laws when doing so could and did result in prosecution.
THC dominant Sativa strains such as Jack tend to act as more of a stimulant with a cerebral or “heady” high. Many patients have had great success treating symptons in the areas of appetite stimulation, relieving depression, migraines, chronic pain and nausea.
Some people, particularly those who have been diagnosed ADD or ADHD can have the Indica/Sativa scale flip on them. For many of these patients Indicas will provide the effect typical of Sativas. And this strain will actually induce Indica like effects. For those patients this strain would act in a more sedative or relaxant. For those patients this would be a good strain for treating the symptoms of medical conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, muscle spasms and tremors.
