History of the Jack Herer Strain

Jack is a 50/50 hybrid with THC levels of 21% and a CBD of .07%. Dutch pharmacies have recognized the many medical benefits of this strain and authorized its use for medical patients in the Netherlands.
Jack Herer has thick buds with rounded tops, dark green leaves and rust-colored pistils. An abundant amount of resin coats the buds, leaves, stems and even the plant stalks.

A heavy presence of terpinolene gives a minty and citrus evergreen taste to extracts and edibles made with Jack Herer.

Growing Jack Herer Seeds
The Jack Herer strain has several phenotypes, most of them produce a tall and early flowering sativa dominant plant. An occasional more indica leaning phenotype will pop up about 20% of the time. All of the Jack plants are best grown in a warm climate with low humidity. Indoor gardens would do well to employ the SOG and SCROG growing methods. 10-12 weeks of flowering for indoor plants with an average yield of 18oz/m2 is standard. While outdoors, Jack finishes flowering in late September and provides a typical harvest of 18oz/plant.
