THC Concentration & History
Developed in the Netherlands by expert growers at Sensi Seeds, Jack Herer’s THC concentration is approximately 17-24%, making it quite potent and an excellent choice for anyone seeking stronger effects. The potency can be even furthered by one of the many different Jack Herer shatters available such as those by Faded Extracts, High Heat or Firerock Extracts. A sativa-dominant hybrid, the strain has been tested to carry a ratio of 55% sativa to 45% indica, although its exact origins and genetics are well-guarded. It is believed to be derived from Haze, Northern Lights #5, as well as Shiva Skunk. Jack Herer is also known as being the derivative phenotype for other popular strains such as Jack the Ripper, Jack’s Cleaner, Jack Frost and Jack Skellington.
Appearance & Aroma
The overall appearance of this well-rounded strain is muted, as it carries a certain quiet confidence. The light to pale green leaves are densely packed inside the elongated buds, coiled bright orange pistils, with a multitude of trichomes adorning the outer layers. This makes Jack Herer a stickier bud to hold, though also such pleasure to smell. Immediately you’ll notice a sharp citrus aroma with a deep and rich zest, unveiled more as you break apart and grind down on the leaves. As you begin to smoke, this strain burns with a semblance of sage, tasting smooth and delectably herbal, with dank hints of pepper, but not as pungent as other choices. This makes Jack Herer a great choice for new smokers, as its flavours are less overwhelming and more soothing to the taste buds.
