The cream of the crops and perhaps the most exquisite ganja you will
ever encounter; this strain ranks as the most awarded variety in the
history of harvest festivals. Nine awards and counting would be the
pinnacle of recognition for any strain, yet Jack Herer manages to go a
step further and bears the distinction of being distributed under
prescription by Dutch pharmacies as a recognised variety of
Sensi’s champagne of strains is named
in honour of Jack Herer, author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes.
Through tireless activism and his landmark book, Jack Herer can take
most of the credit for reminding the world that cannabis in all its
forms has always been one of humankind’s most valuable resources, and
that we can literally save the planet with hemp!
blend of tropical Sativa high and monstrous Indica resin production
captured in Jack Herer must be seen and sampled to be believed. At
their peak, buds are so thickly smothered with clear trichomes that
they appear sugar-frosted or sparkling with dew-drops. This
crystal-coating extends to spear-leaves, fan leaves and even to Jack’s
stems and stalks.
Plants from seed show favourable variation,
due to Jack Herer’s complex background and delicate balance right at
the cusp of Sativa and Indica. Enhanced features from both sides of the
family are strongly evident and are expressed in different
combinations, allowing growers to select mother plants tailored to
their circumstances and tastes.
Three of Jack’s four main
phenotypes are heavily Sativa-influenced while the fourth has a growth
pattern leaning towards Indica - fast-flowering and relatively compact
with a dense, expansive, rounded bud structure that’s suited to
cash-cropping. Jack’s Sativa phenotypes can also produce a good
per-metre or per-plant yield when cultivated skilfully, though it is
rare for these crops to be sold commercially. Most growers who have
watched their succulent, super-sized calyxes swell and mature will be
hesitant to sell such buds, and the best Jack Herer is often passed
around a select circle of friends - an example of one of those things
that money just can’t buy.
The trait common to all Jack Herer
phenotypes is a dazzling double-edged potency - a stratospheric
cerebral high underpinned by a breathtaking body-buzz with seismic
power. Smokers should be prepared to feel the earth shake beneath their
feet - which can be a very pleasant feeling when your head is firmly in
