Jack Herer is now available in feminised form. Named after the legendary late cannabis advocate this sativa-dominant hybrid strain is a great illustration of just how good hybrid strains can be with fantastic potency, great flavour and masses of resin crystals.
Jack Herer produces several pheno-types although most will be leaning towards the sativa side. Approximately 25% of plants will display more typically indica growth patterns. Unless grown in a very warm climate this strain is intended for indoor cultivation. The sativa phenos will stretch between 200 - 300% during flowering so account should be taken of this when planning a grow. The indica specimens will grow into shorter plants with their stretch in bloom restricted to between 75 - 150%.
Flowering takes 8 - 12 weeks to finish with the indica phenos finishing earlier although growers are advised against cropping at 8 weeks for these; it is more rewarding in terms of both yield and resin production to go for at least another week or maybe two. The sativa phenos should be left for the full 12 weeks in order for their full potential to be reached. While the buds of the sativa plants run together along the branches forming beautiful, long colas those of the indica plants will tend to form dense clusters around the bud-nodes. A big advantage is the relatively low odour produced during flowering, much less than many other cannabis strains.
Resin production is astonishingly high with Jack Herer plants, the buds and smaller leaves glisten like diamonds and this prevails once the buds are dried. In terms of aroma, the spicy scent of Haze is combined with a fruity Skunk quality and an earthiness from the Afghani component. Different pheno-types will accentuate one or more of these at the expense of others. All phenos produce a wonderful balance of both sativa and indica effects. The soaring, cerebral high of the Haze is underpinned by a powerful and relaxing body high. No wonder that Jack Herer was one of the first medical marijuana strains to be made available on prescription from pharmacies in the Netherlands. While the potency of this weed is never completely overpowering as some land-race sativas can be those who seek therapeutic relief but who shy away from high-THC strains are advised to look elsewhere as Jack Herer is strongly psycho-active.

About Sensi Seeds
There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
In the early 1970’s, the founder of Sensi, Ben, opened a clothes shop in the Dutch city of Rotterdam where he sold homemade clothing. A few years earlier, at the age of seventeen, he smoked his first joint. But it wasn’t until he began making regular trips to Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan to purchase textiles that he became aware of the plant’s versatility. He learned about hemp fibre’s suitability as, among other things, a textile and was given cannabis and cannabis seeds by local farmers. Ben discovered that the cannabis plant had so much to offer in spite of it being prohibited and vilified in all corners of the world.
It became one of his passions to collect cannabis seeds from Central and South East Asia and the Asian subcontinent. Back home in the Netherlands, he started to cultivate these seeds in order to learn more about the growth process of this very special plant.
At the start of the 1980’s, the first examples of innovative, stabilised hybrids, such as Haze and Skunk, arrived in Europe from the United States. Ben was one of a mere three Dutch cultivators who were granted access to these hybrids, which are considered an important blueprint for the development of European hybrids.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
With a host of award winning strains, it would be unwise to overlook Sensi Seeds, available to buy at Seedsman now.
