Jack Herer is one of the most famous and cultivated strains of cannabis in the world, winner of multiple awards and cups. It is considered not only as one of the great Haze hybrids, but as one of the best varieties ever created.
It was born as a tribute from Sensi Seeds to their friend, the cannabis activist Jack Herer, author among other works of “The Emperor Wears No Clothes”, where he envisions a future less dependent on petroleum derivatives in favor of cannabis derivatives.
It is a combination of the 3 most influential strains which are Skunk #1, Haze, and Northern Lights #5. And the result is simply perfect. Years later, one of the breeders involved in its development would try to do the same in Greenhouse with the same parentals, giving birth to another legend like Super Silver Haze.
Since its introduction, multiple versions have emerged and the original Jack Herer has served as breeding material for new hybrids like the more than famous Critical Jack Herer.
