The Original Jack Herer™ brand by Herer Group is known throughout the world of cannabis for promoting clear headed creativity in sativa style, yet retaining the flavorful resins of an indica. Jack Herer, sometimes called the “Emperor of Hemp”, was an American cannabis rights activist, legendary grower and the author of ‘The Emperor Wears No Clothes’. JH Combines a Haze hybrid with a Northern Lights number 5 and Shiva Skunk. The Dutch company Sensi Seeds created Jack Herer in the Netherlands in the mid-nineties hoping to capture both the cerebral elevation associated with a sativas and the heavy duty resin production of an indica. Now JH is back in its purest form, brought to us all by Jack’s son Dan Herer and Herer Group.
Dan was kind enough to invite the Edibles Magazine staff to a Herer Group party in Santa Cruz during the National Cannabis Industry Association conference and there was a lot of fresh flower there at a beautifully set up roll-your-own joint station with papers, pipes, grinders, and about one full pound of nicely trimmed, beautiful buds of Jack Herer™ flower. We rolled joint after joint of the fluffy stuff. It was malleable inside the papers with nothing sharp or prickly poking anywhere at any point. Some of that’s from care of the crop but starting out with product this gorgeous and soft goes a long way. The smell was absolutely wonderful and the cheesiest we’ve come across. It was like a sharp cheddar/nacho scent that was potently fragrant in the best of cheesy ways. Aromatic enough that you’ll want to store it as properly as possible or people will really think you’re a cheese smuggler and the raw-milk and unpasteurized kind is illegal so be careful. This was a sativa-high that was a fresh, funkily energized and hazily frenetic as any I’ve experienced. We were “Jacked”, get it? We smoked and smoked and couldn’t stop talking about weed, terpenes, music, cannabinoids, growing culture, beaches, bigfoot and aliens.. It was live-wire style chat fest but we barely ever got off the couch. Love, love, loved this bud and can’t recommend it enough.
