This strain was created in the Netherlands back in the mid-1990s. Breeders produced this strain when they crossed a Haze hybrid with Northern Lights #5 and some skunk strain. The result of this genetic cocktail is a plant that produces lots of powerful resin, and that delivers a mood elevating high.


Jack Herer does well grown outdoors in a warm and dry climate. You can expect flowers to show up somewhere around the 60-day mark. And when they do appear, you’ll be excited when you see this strain’s heavy trichome production. For maximum potency, harvest when the trichomes are all milky white.
