Jack Herer is a total legend - whether in cannabis polemicist or in cannabis seed form! Sensi Seeds named this fabulous indica/sativa cannabis strain in honour of all the good works carried out by this latter-day cannabis prophet. It is a multi-award winning strain.
Jack Herer the plant resulted from many, many generations of breeding and a rigorous selection process. It has been awarded more Cup victories than any other strain and this continues to this day. It is one of the marijuana varieties that is available on prescription in Holland (The Netherlands). Jack Herer must be the most perfectly realised blend of indica and sativa attributes. There are four main pheno-types allowing for the judicious selection of mother plants to suit individual taste; three are heavily sativa-influenced while the fourth is clearly more of an indica expression from its size to bud structure.
Indoors flowering takes between 50 - 70 days depending on pheno-type, outdoor growers in warm, dry climate regions will be chopping their plants during October in the northern hemisphere. Yields are very good with the indica pheno giving the best returns in terms of weight.
The dried buds are of medium density and exude an aroma of peppery Haze with some fruity Skunk notes. The flavour is similar, pepper and Haze along with an acrid fruitiness. All of the pheno-types share one special attribute in common - the effect which is a stunning combination of a cerebra high of almost orbital quality coupled with a a body-stone that hits like an earthquake.

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.
