Most growers who have watched their succulent, super-sized calyxes swell and mature will be hesitant to sell such buds, and the best Jack Herer is often passed around a select circle of friends - an example of one of those things that money just can’t buy. The trait common to all Jack Herer phenotypes is a dazzling double-edged potency - a stratospheric cerebral high underpinned by a breathtaking body-buzz with seismic power. Smokers should be prepared to feel the earth shake beneath their feet - which can be a very pleasant feeling when your head is firmly in the clouds. Short flowering period (50 - 70 days) 55% Sativa / 45% Indica.
High Times about the lineage: While Sensi say the exact lineage is a closely-guarded secret, it is accepted that Jack Herer is a 3-way hybrid of Skunk #1, Northern Lights #5 and Haze. The precise lineage is probably Haze x [Northern Lights #5 x (Northern Lights #5 x Skunk #1)] which suggests that Sensi began by selecting a male from their NL5 x SK1 seedline (AKA Shiva Skunk) and backcrossing him to the NL5 female cutting. As Sensi purchased Neville's breeding plants, they had both the Haze A and C males, so it is likely that they then chose a female NL5 x (NL5xSK1) plant and pollinated it with one of the Haze males to create Jack Herer., this would make Jack 50% Haze, 37.5% NL5 and 12.5% SK1. This gives Jack Herer a similar composition to Super Silver Haze and Mango Haze which are 50% Haze, 25% NL5 and 25% SK1. Jack Herer from Sensi Seeds is available as regular and feminized seeds.

Sensi Seeds Presents Inspiring Sativa Strain Michka® Jack Herer Phenotypes. Due to its complex lineage, Jack Herer has four main phenotypes. Three of them show bold sativa traits, while the remaining indica phenotype, taller and denser, is more of a cash-crop gold mine. Regardless, each phenotype exceeds expectancy, and is a true delight for the discerning grower. Thus, growers should not expect uniform plants when growing Jack Herer from seed. One of this strain’s outstanding features is that it allows the grower to choose a phenotype whose growing pattern fits their needs and preferences, while maintaining Jack’s near-psychedelic potency in whichever phenotype is chosen. The most obvious phenotypic differences in Jack Herer strains are whether or not they exhibit more indica-like or sativa-like qualities.
The differences can be summarized as follow: The buds of pheno-A take the form of long strings of inflated, highly resinous calyxes, very much like the Jack Herer pictured in the Sensi catalogue.
If potency is the main aim, growers should select this phenotype, which can be reliably identified by its oversized calyxes. Pheno-A requires the full 70 days to finish and can multiply its height by a factor of five or more. Therefore, it should be flowered very small (around 10-15 cm).
