(often misspelled as “Jack Herrer”)

This strain is named after the famous hemp/marijuana advocate and author, Jack Herer.  This strain is primarily a Haze which has been bred to have a shorter growth and flowering time.  Having been around since the 1990s, this strain has won several awards including a Cannabis Cup in 1995.  These are most often grown with hydroponics and as cuttings rather than from seed.  The plants are quite large and heavy producers, like most Haze variants.

The buds are thick, resembling grapes, and will have a light hued resin coating whose hairs darken to a deep maroon when the bud is mature.  These plants have a great smell, produce a thick, but tasty smoke, and have a good THC level.  The buzz is fast and lingers and delivers a lot of THC in a short amount of time.  This is why it is one of the few strains prescribed for fibromyalgia, though it is also prescribed for anxiety, migraines, etc.

    Definitely my favorite strand, a very strong creeper. Had 3 bowls off of a vapor genie, and didn’t feel effects until about 10-15 minutes when it kicked me in the head. Very giggly and energetic after the high kicked in. Went on a roller coaster right after and had the best time of my life. 5 stars, highly recommend, but don’t expect to function well for at least 2.5-3 hours.

    only negative thing i have to say about it that its extremely rare where i live.
    smoked it a while ago and had some awesome time with it.
    good smell, good taste. makes you so hungry and locks you so damn hard to the couch that you tell the pizza service how to get into your house to deliver it directly to your couch.
    makes you creative and gives you nice CEV’s.
    definately a must try!

    gives me the same effects as white widow without the headaches. it’s still a head high, but not in the same place as WW. i was very into organizing and rearranging my room and closet. great for cleaning and doing other boring chores!

    Experienced more of the Indica expression of this strain. But the Sativa version would be phenominal, based off how great the Indica dominant express was.

    smooth taste. high doesnt creep up on you too slow, once you hit it you know what youre high is going to be like. Sweet smells, body and head high. Euphoric and stress disappears. Prefer more primarily idica strains but this may have changed my mind a bit. havent smoke it for a while so it was deff. different then the last time i indulged

    Got a joint rolled with jack as a FTP from a local club. Can’t really provide info on the look or the smell of the buds, though I’ve since had the pleasure of seeing and smelling jack herer and it’s a fine looking and smelling flower indeed. Anyways, I medicated off this joint and within seconds I had an uncontrollable laughing fit. My roommate asked if I was ok, as I just couldn’t break the cycle of giggles. Put on some music which started to get a little intense. Changed it to RUSH and all the bad vibes went away. Soon after I felt a burst of energy as my head seemed to be soaring far above my body. A “high” if there ever was one. Great medicine for physical activities such as hiking or sports, great for creativity and the arts, and a beautiful treatment for depression and stress. One of the best strains I’ve ever encountered. Good vibes.

    Jack Herer is one of the most potent medicines available today. With a strong, confusing, head high that comes on in a rush after a hit or two, with no real plateau for the nearly-psychedelic high. Not what I’d call a Wake’n’Baker, I almost always experienced paranoia smoking before work, definitely for use at home after work to wind down, as the stress relieving properties in a relaxed environment are amazing. Great for just zoning out on any intensive activity, an extremely active and highly functional high, if.. you don’t have to interact. Excellent for overall pain relief, and for a nearly overwhelming cerebral high without being glued to the couch.
    The nugs themselves are huge, hardly trimmed (no question as to why), and completely coated in trichromes to the tips of the leaves.

    I feel like Jack is still here when I smoke this fire. Outlandish thoughts and visions after toking. I have become a Shaman casting spells on the street corner!

    I am a newer MMJ patient, and have had some bad experiences with heavy sativas. Anxiety and paranoia have gotten the best of me a few times. Not the case at all with this strain. This to me is a perfect daytime strain for anxiety, depression, and doing things. I tore through a bunch of work without realizing after using some the other day. I wasn’t sloppy or slow, just focused and energized. I was happy to talk to people, and smiling a lot, a bit out of character for me, but I liked it. Great strain!

    This bud has a high you can feel off the first few hits. Very calm but euphoric feeling. Helps to sleep and eat. A long, uplifted high.

    Pros (1st Hour)

    – Energetic
    – Talkative/social
    – Creative
    – Inquisitive
    – Clarity
    – NO stress
    – Body High/ Tingly
    – Sassy
    – Motivation

    Cons ( 1st Hour)

    – Honestly no real cons in the first hour after smoking

    Comments:

    The first hour after sharing a joint was awesome! Anxiety, gone. Stress, gone. Instead there was talking, laughing, dancing, and genuine interest in the people around you.

    Pros (2nd Hour)

    – Body High
    – Body Tingle
    – Sleepy (if thats what you are looking for)
    – No big desire to eat
    – Didn’t really wear off, even after eating

    Cons (2nd Hour)

    – Couch Lock
    – Sleepy
    – Loss of Clarity
    – Loss of Motivation
    – Zoning Out
    – Didn’t really wear off, even after eating

    The second hour of this was a complete loss of all the motivation and clarity experienced in the first hour. Couch lock set in and it was down hill from there.

    Overall:

    Great High-
    Its a Buy

    A traditional strain that brings a more cerebral buzz which is ideal for focusing on a single activity, such as music, television, or games.
    It smokes well in bongs but has a preferable smoke if papers or blunts are used.
    A strain that is best for day time smokes.

    Jack is an amazing strain. simple as that. makes me a happy camper. great for daytime. picks me up, spins me around, and sets me down gently. pretty much what I’m looking for in any strain.

    Jack Herer (cannabis) is one of few legendary strains I have tried. To put this particular treat of a strain in a nutshell, it’s just proper weed. It he its own distinct flavors yet fits the description of good pot to a T. Not to strong in the right amounts. Damn near a perfect sativa.. The only negative i have found is a faster than average strain tolerance. A+

    oh boy does this thing ever disappoint? Got down to the last 1/3 of the joint without so much as a buzz but right when I got down to the fingernails, BOOM! It hit me with a real heady feeling with some nice tingles.
