Jack Herer Cannabis Seed Strains… Would He Be Proud?


I thinks So…The ever popular Jack Herer cannabis seed strain is a 4 way combination of diverse sativas. It was a labor of love in remembrance of Jack Herer  the author of “The Emperor Wears No Clothes”. It’s a genetic cross between Marley’s Collie with a limited number of other mild sativas in it. It’s a very pleasant combination of cannabis sativa genetics. It’s not the “highest” yielding cannabis seeds you can use, but it provides a really respectable medicate state with a very high THC count.

Jack Herer is a slightly gangling plant. It ‘s almost vine itself, but it will grow extremely tall if you let it. It’s probably better for outdoor as you don’t have as much invested into it, but it’s also decent in a greenhouse cannabis strain. You can grow this cannabis seed indoors as well. It just depends on I guess what you put into it.

The Jack Herer cannabis seeds respond well to light, so If you trim the lower  branches you get a a much bigger plant, you can get a lot more yield off of it in the outdoor greenhouse situation versus indoor in a highly restricted root environment. It’s one that one’s root has an equal shoot. You can’t grow a great plant and a little bitty root. It makes it hard to do it in a time scale indoors.

Jack Herer takes a while to flower because its sativa genetics. It takes between 80 and 90 days to finish flowering, and it’s one of the ones you definitely want to finish flowering. If you don’t have enough light, you might have to go 100. It’s not one of them that lends itself to shade planting or to cheapening out on the indoor lights.

Jack Herer is close to Neville’s Haze. A lot of the ties, a lot of the Africans, it comes down to pure sativas that are lowland in descent, and it’s just a hybrid of those.

Jack Herer is really easy to sell. They’re a lot of people out there that want these sativas, like Jack Herer and a few we mentioned here. A lot of people don’t want to grow it because they don’t get the yield out of them, but the price is reflected. So, you get more money out of it, and it’s also easier to get rid of because people will take it instantly, because not very many people want to grow sativas.

They don’t realize that to a patient population they’re highly dependent upon the sativas and upon them being available at a decent price and sufficient quality. It’s one of those ones that I don’t discourage people from growing it because it’s very much needed, and it will sell instantly at almost any club you take it to.
