Jack Herer Review


Summary: Jack Herer, a popular sativa dominant strain is great for chronic pain relief, easing muscle spasms, anxiety and lethargy. All the high without the sleepiness.



User Rating: 4.9 (1 votes)

Jack Herer is definitely a strain that most medical marijuana users will have access to, at some point in time. For very good reason, too. Jack Herer is a long time decedent of the original Haze, Northern Lights, and Skunk strains.

It looks a lot like your average dark-green bud. Trichromes litter the surface of the Jack Herer buds, and dark amber hairs can be seen sporadically among the trichromes. It has a one-of-a-kind flavor; Jack Herer has a taste that resembles a frost-covered pine. Most users fall in love with the sweet taste of Jack Herer, and often times use Jack Herer’s name to describe other strains’ tastes. It has a very mellow scent, one that is pleasurable.
