Some people called him the “Emperor of Hemp.” He is credited with starting the Worldwide Cannabis Legalization Movement. And he was the combined founder and director of the Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP) organization. Of course, this renowned activist for cannabis rights should have his very own strain, and why wouldn’t it bear his own name: Jack Herer.
Jack Herer has historically been a Sativa-dominant cannabis strain, which one several upstanding awards for quality and experience since its creation in the mid-1990s in the Netherlands. As a Sativa-dominant, the transition from traditional marijuana to hemp strains with the same qualities and low THC was a relatively natural jump.
The Jack Herer marijuana strain may have started primarily as a namesake strain to pay homage to a cannabis hero, but Jack Herer CBD hemp is now just as popular. In spite of low Δ9-THC content (less than 0.3 percent), the beloved Jack Herer hemp strain has much to offer.

Jack Herer Hemp Strain Genetics
Jack Herer is a collaboration of three primary parent strains: Haze and Shiva Skunk/Northern Lights cross strain. Even though the primary genetic contributors of the strain are hybrids, Sativa attributes no doubt rule this strain in the overall flowering cycle, resin consistency, and effects for the end-user.
You can find an impressive collection of variations of Jack Herer, each with its own specific cannabinoid and terpene makeup. However, our Jack Herer hemp at TIMBR Organics was selectively bred to stay as true to the original as possible. The end result is one of the highest CBD strains we have to offer. A strain that boasts terpinolene and limonene terpene abundance to retain flavor, aromatics, and effects of the original.
Jack Herer Flavor Profile
Jack Herer is such a diverse strain, chock-full of an enamoring lineup of terpenes like terpinolene, limonene, and pinene. What you get is a mind-blowing collaboration of flavor notes with certain terpenes taking center stage for the experience. Most followers of this strain explain the experience as pulling in a citrus-laden flavor across your tongue with a piney aftertaste and a kick of peppery flavor that sort of lingers in your mouth for a minute.
One of the reasons Jack Herer delivers such a nice citrus-laden experience is its high limonene and terpinolene terpene content, both of which have these fresh citrusy notes. Nevertheless, those back-end flavors are still very much noticeable, so you get just enough skunky sweetness and a little pepperiness with every hit. Much as you would expect to experience from such a prominently named strain, there’s no flavor shortage with Jack—you will remember the encounter.
Jack Herer Strain: Reported Effects
The Jack Herer effects tend to be quite noticeable in comparison to some strains because of the unique genetic quality of the plant. By nature, this hemp strain is created to yield a more uplifting, happy effect. In the world of traditional cannabis, Jack Herer is the go-to day-starter. The effects tend to be described as energizing and clarifying, which is a good way to get a busy day off to the right start. The hemp strain bearing the same name offers much of that same effect minus high levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
Our Jack Herer strain contains only 0.1 percent THC, which is plenty under that 0.3 percent THC requirement to keep things legal and nowhere near enough to generate intoxication. That fractional amount does offer support for the impressive CBD and cannabinoid lineup in the strain. CBD (cannabidiol) is especially abundant in Jack, but you also get a hefty dose of other cannabinoids like CBC (cannabichromene) and CBN (cannabinol).
