With its well-balanced, good-natured high, this cannabis strain—named after the late, well-known marijuana activist and author Jack Herer—has a wide appeal, including to new users.
Said to combine the characteristics of Haze, Shiva Skunk and Northern Lights #5, Jack Herer was originally produced by Dutch company Sensi Seeds in the 1990s. It boasts an earthy aroma with citrus undertones and a sweet, sometimes spicy taste.
Known as the ideal Sativa, the strain has pronounced cerebral effects that can be uplifting, spur creativity and cultivate a sense of intellectual inquiry. Its mellow but invigorating nature is never overwhelming, and great for daytime use, social occasions, and finding the energy needed to finish complex tasks.
The balanced and relaxing traits of Jack Herer make it attractive to medical cannabis users coping with conditions that include ADD/ADHD, depression, and anxiety. It can also help with mild to moderate pain, though severe pain may require a more potent cannabis strain.
