Top 10 Jack Herer hybrid strains
A favorite from the moment it was released, the Jack Herer strain of cannabis, like the man himself, has become a legend. A potent beast in its own right, Jack Herer has gone on to become one of the cornerstones of the contemporary breeding scene.
Read Jack Herer’s book “The Emperor Wears No Clothes” and become enlightened; use the Jack Herer strain or its hybrids and be launched into a deliciously flavored hyperreality. Here are 10 of the best Jack Herer hybrids on the scene.
1. Jack Flash 5
When it’s big yields from big plants you’re after, then you can’t go wrong with Jack Flash #5. This sativa-dominant strain combines four multiple-award-winning strains into one singularly potent delight.
Well-spaced, tight flowers form towers of crusty calyxes that give a shaggy appearance. With a very impressive leaf to bud ratio, little time will be spent trimming. Fruity apricot and orange notes with a hint of spice cure to reveal pines and mints.
Long-lasting cerebral effects that set in quickly leave you with an energetic and creative buzz. Two phenotypes are expressed with this strain; a shorter, bushier indica and a stretchier, thin-leaved sativa.
2. Black Jack
With deep green leaves on plants that display all the best attributes of hybrid vigor, Black Jack will bring a smile to the dial of any indoor grower. With its strong growth and heavy budding pattern, it will bring on a maniacal grin as 3m-tall trees get weighed down heavily with long spears of dense flowers.
This half and half sativa/indica hybrid brings the best of both worlds to the bud jar. Thick with trichomes, the darkly hued indica-style flowers cluster together on towering sativa-like plants.
The Haze background presents with an intense cathedral incense aroma and a very impressive 16–20% THC. With 1% CBD, the entourage effect is in full swing to provide a uniquely uplifting and relaxing experience.
3. Galactic Jack
Treasured in the Pacific NW of the USA, Galactic Jack is a sativa-dominant hybrid ideally suited to indoor grows. The grower needs to be aware that at the 12/12 flip to flowering, she stretches considerably to make space for the long colas.
This strain is perfect for ScrOG grows as it should be topped a number of times and tied down for best results. There are four main phenotypes, with one being particularly Haze-like and the others more like the Jack Herer mother. They are all very potent, with 25% THC achievable in well-maintained and cured plants.
Buds are typically sativa-esque, running along and filling out whole branches. Citrus, grapefruit, and musk aromas cure to give a powerful lemon crush rush carried by a thick, heavy smoke. With uplifting and invigorating effects, Galactic Jack is great for the worker or when you want a buzz while getting things done.
Growing Jack Herer hybrids means stellar results in the grow room, abundant aromas in the curing room, jars fit to burst in the cupboard, and potent effects.
