Continue as we delve into the captivating world of the Jack Herer strain info. This cultivar is highly regarded and loved by both cannabis novices and seasoned enthusiasts alike. Stay tuned for an exploration of its rich history and unique qualities that have catapulted it to worldwide fame.

Who is Jack Herer?

Jack Herer was a cannabis activist and author of the 1985 non-fiction book, The Emperor Wears No Clothes, which serves as an anthology of the history of cannabis and hemp and all of its uses. In it, Herer explains his position quite clearly:

“If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the Greenhouse Effect and stop deforestation; then there is only one known annually renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time… and that substance is — the same one that did it all before — Cannabis Hemp…”

The 14th edition of the book was published in 2020 and has been cited in countless cannabis rescheduling and re-legalization efforts.

Jack Herer Strain Info: Lineage

The Jack Herer strain, known by several aliases such as “JH,” “The Jack,” “Premium Jack,” and “Platinum Jack,” shines as a sativa-dominant hybrid paying homage to the renowned cannabis activist Jack Herer. Sensi Seeds, the brilliant minds behind this creation, originate from the Netherlands, where they meticulously developed this strain in the 1990s. It magnifies Herer’s extraordinary legacy and serves as a testament to his unwavering advocacy.

The potent combination of its parent strains – Shiva Skunk (indica), Northern Lights #5 (indica), and Haze (sativa) – made it highly sought after by Dutch pharmacies and medical practitioners. Recognized as a medical-grade strain, it packs a powerful punch and swiftly gained popularity in the medical community.

This strain smells like peppered spice with an intense fruity undertone. Jack Herer has become such a staple that it became the parent strain for several other hybrid strains such as Jack Skellington, Jack the Ripper, Critical Jack, and Jack’s Cleaner.


Growing the Jack Herer Cultivar

Jack Herer is known as a relatively easy strain to cultivate, even for beginners. The strain is relatively disease-resistant as well as resistant to powdery mildew, molds, pests, bugs, and more.

Jack Herer can thrive in both indoor and outdoor environments. However, to flourish outdoors, it necessitates a dry, balmy, sunny climate with warm weather conditions. Indoors, the plant can yield 18 ounces per square meter; outdoors, it’s 18 ounces per plant. Flowering usually takes only 7-10 weeks.

Harvest takes place around late September and early October, and the plant can grow above two meters tall. Its ease of cultivation solidifies its place as a premier plant for medical dispensaries, recreational shops, and professional growing facilities.
