Jack Herer is a popular cannabis strain, probably because of its ease of cultivation. Even if you are just a beginner, you will not find it challenging to have a good harvest from it. However, the place where you will grow the seeds should be spacious as they can grow up to a height of two meters. Jack Herer does well both indoors and outdoors with high resistance to diseases and pests. It does very well in dry, balmy, and warm weather conditions. Constant exposure to sunlight can also increase yields, with the flowering time of between 7 and 10 weeks.
Jack Herer is a tall strain. At flowering, it produces buds that glitter in the light because of the high level of resin that these species produce. The sugar leaves are characteristically green and decorated with coiled orange pistils and water leaves are forest green. When properly cured, the plant has a distinctive aroma of damp skunky earth with piney and woody hints. During the inhale, you will feel herbal flavors that are earthy and woody.
This cannabis strain is popular among recreational and medical users. After the inhalation, users are greeted with a heavy head rush that is more energizing than disorienting. The effects start on the head and spread down the body, creating a sense of relaxation and happiness. Unlike other strains, Jack Herer will keep you alert and improve your creativity. That is why this strain is mainly consumed in the morning, just before setting off for daytime activities.
Medical users have found Jack Herer strain is used for treating mental and neurological disorders such as anxiety, migraines, ADHD, PTSD, etc.
