Cultivating Sensi Seeds’ Jack Herer®
While Jack Herer® is far from being the hardest strain to grow, it certainly requires some care, and more importantly, unconditional love! But undoubtedly, if you are a true enthusiast seeking for the legendary features, effects and tastes one frequently hears about when it comes to Jack Herer®, the efforts and time spent are rewarded many-fold.
“I have grown it in hydroponics as well as in soil, and both work very well, as long as you care for it, and treat it with love and passion.” – by Edward, sensiseeds.com [x]
Due to its complex lineage, Jack Herer® has four main phenotypes. Three of them show bold sativa traits, while the remaining indica phenotype, taller and denser, is more of a cash-crop mine gold. Regardless, each phenotype exceeds expectancy, and is a true delight for the discerning grower.
“I had a good variety of phenotypes, including the one I know as Jack Herer® from previous samplings, a lime one, an extremely dank skunky one that grows like a sativa, and a hazey-smelling indica.” – by MidnightToker, sensiseeds.com [x]
“I kept three extraordinary phenotypes […]. Phenotype #1 has been nicknamed “Fruity Jack” as it’s very fruity, phenotype #2’s nickname is “Spicy Jack”, since it’s spicy. The most potent but least productive is called “Flashback Jack” because its calices are enormous and uber-resinous, and offer the unique, authentic taste of the Jack from coffeeshops back in the ‘90s.” – by Sam89, sensiseeds.com [x]
If you’re looking for performance, worry not; Jack Herer® is a definite standard for irreproachable quality, but it is also quite the performer if handled with proper care.
“The main stem of this plant can be two to three times as thick as your arm, if you grow them hydroponically or with aeroponics! Have fun with this absolute old-school smasher.” – by Demonic, sensiseeds.com [x]
Tasting Sensi Seeds’ Jack Herer®
One reason why Jack Herer® has become an essential staple of a perfect cannabis experience is the quality of the high-stone combo it provides. Between its cerebral high that certainly has the means to put you into orbit, and its full body takeover that many compare to an actual, inner earthquake, indifference is not an option.
“Very good high, almost immediate if grown properly, then you are eased into a very ‘stoned’ state of relaxation. A gentle taste, creamy, and at times, metallic-skunky.” – by Mika, sensiseeds.com [x]
The taste of Jack Herer® can vary depending on how it was grown. One thing remains true for all phenotypes, and all methods of growing: a rich taste, that can be foreseen according to the aspect of its plants: so resinous it hurts!
“Buds as hard as stone, when they are properly dried, and an earthy taste that gives you shivers all over … a punch in the face for sure!” – by dubinc07, sensiseeds.com [x]
Thank you, Jack Herer.
“These genetics are a beautiful homage to a great man, activist and great defender of cannabis, who unfortunately left us too soon! Rest In Peace, Jack. Thank you to Ben Dronkers, and to the entire Sensi Seeds team, for this magnificent, robust and potent plant, that will enchant your taste buds, and your mind! The quality-price ratio is honourable. You will not be disappointed, I recommend it greatly. Thank you.” – by Dr.Flow77, sensiseeds.com [x]
“15 years ago, I read in a magazine that a new cannabis strain was being released, and that it was a hybrid of some of the most potent varieties. Days later, I travelled to Maastricht and saw this name on a menu. Believe me, the joint I smoked marked me, I remember it as if it were yesterday. Taste as well as effect were unforgettable. One of the world’s best as far as I am concerned. Congratulations, Mr Jack Herer!” – by Caillus green, sensiseeds.com [x]
