Bud Buzz: Jack Herer strain is one of those cannabis strains that most people have heard of but is sometimes not easy to find. If you do run across this strain at a dispensary, definitely pick some up. This cannabis strain can vary considerably depending on the dispensary and cultivator. Some places insisting it is a straight Sativa and others a more balanced but slightly Sativa leaning hybrid. You should ask about this when making your purchase so you know what you are getting. Jack Herer buds are medium sized and quite dense.
Once broken up you may need to dry the flower out a bit before grinding. The buds are lime green to light green in color. They have plenty of frosty trichomes and dark orange hairs throughout. The smell of Jack Herer is interesting. It’s slightly nutty with some pine and earthiness but also has a chemical aroma as well. The taste is similar but the pine taste is more of an afterthought.
The famous Jack Herer strain head buzz hits you right away after just one or two tokes. The lighter body buzz comes on after just a few minutes. You can expect your buzz to last well past the 3 hour mark. The initial feelings with this cannabis strain are euphoria and happiness. You may experience some slight jitters for the first ten minutes or so but this does go away. Jack Herer is a super energetic creative strain. It makes you want to do and think, hopefully at the same time so it is an excellent daytime strain.
For most people Jack Herer can have a slight calming effect while still being fairly uplifting, making it truly unique in the cannabis world. This strain is very potent so for newbies, exercise caution the first few times you toke up and remember you can always smoke more but you can never do the opposite. Great for stress, depression, mild pain management and fatigue. The only real negatives are dry mouth and dry eyes.
Drinkables – Jack Herer, like most cannabis strains, does cause dry mouth so start your smoke session with plenty of water. A little fruit juice or a lemon or limeade is a good refreshing drink option and if you simply must have caffeine, any dark soda or energy drink will do but those with a touch of citrus are just better. For some people the combination of this cannabis strain and alcohol can cause dizziness so it’s best to avoid alcohol unless you have a lot of experience with the strain and know how it will affect you.
Munchables – You will get the munchies with this strain but they won’t be too intense and should come on after about 30 minutes. Spicy snacks or meals seem to work best with Jack Herer so if you are not overly hungry just go with some chips and a spicy salsa but if a full meal is what you need try Thai or Indian food with at least a medium spice level. If you are craving something sweet, dark chocolate with chili peppers is a perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth and get a little spice at the same time.
Doables – You will definitely feel like doing things with this cannabis strain. Even the most mundane activities become much more interesting and entertaining with Jack Herer. Now that does not mean cleaning the bathroom will somehow become a life changing experience, even Jack Herer has its limits. This cannabis strain is perfect for both mental and physical activities and if you add music into the mix can really provide a cerebral experience that will be memorable.
