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.

    I love Jack, because I can’t get really get tired of it. The high is just perfect and there’s no munchies. Well, munchies are great, but sometimes they aren’t and this is when Jack Herrer comes to help. I’ve been walking around, riding longboard, talking with people, always easy.

  3. Timmy Waters says:

    Very light and neutral taste and smell, as well as a light feeling high. This is the best I’ve ever smoked for ideas and euphoria, and feeling euphoric about ideas. Astounding creativity off this stuff, first time being high has made me feel smarter

  4. Arthur Garza says:

    A good strain for stress relief. After hours on the phone dealing with lawyers and government officials I smoked a dube of Jack and the tension slipped away. No weed can solve problems, but this strain has the ability to make a “bad” day dismissed and the appreciation of the “now” a blissful high.

  5. Olga Alexander says:

    Very strong body high and mental high. its a sativa strain and is to be taken lightly. I smoked half a gram and I was lost and zoning in and out of day dreams. dont smoke it at night bc youll get very paranoid

  6. Laurie Abbott says:

    potent, great flavour, long lasting, what more could you ask for… Oh wait, there is no burnout… perfection has found its name.”

    God! This strain hit me in the face! Had it’s typical sativa effects but after 15 minutes had me couch locked and fast asleep!
