Named after the late, legendary cannabis activist and author of the 1985 book “The Emperor Wears No Clothes,” Jack Herer has achieved a lofty, heavily proliferated status among modern cannabis strains. Its flavor is reportedly a composite of citrus, pine, wood and spice.
This creation from Dutch seed bank Sensi Seeds won 9 first-place High Times Cannabis Cup awards, and is a frequently used parent strain for new hybrids.
Its lineage remains unconfirmed, but it’s generally thought to be a complex hybrid of Northern Lights #5, Shiva Skunk and Haze.
The strain typically grows tall, and three of its four phenotypes flower quickly with large, round, dense buds.
The seed bank reports a flowering time of 50-70 days. Its buds and dark-green leaves are typically coated in sticky, sugary trichomes, and its heavy yields may require intermediate growing skills.
