If you’re new to cannabis, or you’ve just been smoking aimlessly, first thing you need to know is this: sativa strains give you a high, indica strains produce a low and hybrids can do any number of things, based on what they’re made of.
Not surprisingly, Jack Herer is a sativa-dominant strain of cannabis. It’s technically a hybrid. When a haze hybrid is combined with a cross of Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk — we get Jack Herer. Jack Herer, the namesake of this cannabis strain, created it trying to capture the elevation of sativa as well as the heavy resin production of indica strains.
It was created in the mid-1900s in the Netherlands. Jack Herer is a high quality, extremely potent strain. It’s earthy, spicy, pine-scented flavors make it very popular. Users describe Jack Herer as blissful. Apart from creativity, it makes you clear-headed and energized. No wonder it’s one of the most popular cannabis strains for creativity.
