Jack Herer was one of the most vocal proponents of cannabis decriminalisation, and a lifelong exponent of the virtues of marijuana and hemp, so it is fitting that the strain sometimes referred to as “the champagne of cannabis” bears his name.

A Sativa-dominant hybrid of Northern Lights, Skunk and Haze, Jack Herer has been picking up accolades ever since its creation in the Netherlands in 1994, and is one of the most popular medical marijuana strains in the USA. With its potency and excellent lineage, Jack Herer is prized amongst plant breeders for its capacity to produce a wide variety of interesting phenotypes, and you can find many progeny of the original strain which replicate the spicy flavour and light-green frosted buds in different but recognisable ways (e.g. Candy Jack, Jackie-O, Jack Flash).

The uplifting, positive high is ideal for daytime use, and advocates of its medicinal properties claim that it is an effective anti-anxiety drug. Many connoisseurs also consider it to be the market leader when it comes to flavour, with a cool but spicy taste which fades into a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. When allowed to grow to full maturity its buds are thick with resin, hence the pale-green, frosty appearance; the distinctive rust-red threads are its calling card.

For the best results, Jack Herer should be grown outdoors in a dry climate, but an indoor hydroponic set-up will produce good quality plants as long as they are given enough time to flower properly. This is undoubtedly a strain of cannabis which benefits from a little bit of patience, and when treated with appropriate care and attention it will produce so much resin that you are likely to find it on the stems and along the edges of the five-pointed fan leaves. Because of its Sativa genetics it tends to be tall and thin with upwards-pointing branches, so it won’t occupy too much of your floor-space;  and it is not uncommon for growers to report that the quality of the clones taken from a single mother plant actually increases over the first few years of life. Possibly not the easiest plant for the novice cultivator, but undoubtedly one that is worth the effort.
