The Jack Herer strain is a cross between Skunk #1, Northern Lights #5 and Haze. It was named this way in honor of Jack Herer by Ben Dronkers, founder of the Sensi Seed Bank. It has sativa dominant characteristics, with a flowering time up to 75 days. It’s a very popular strain and has won the High Times Cannabis Cup several years and running.
If you dont know who Jack Herer is you should probably “DROP AND PUT DOWN THE BONG….NOW!!!!!!
Jack Herer(b. 1939) is the author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes , a book which has been used in efforts to decriminalize cannabis.
A former Goldwater Republican, Herer is now a pro-marijuana and hemp activist. He has written two books, the one previously mentioned above and Grass. There has also been a documentary made about his life. He believes that the hemp plant should be decriminalized because it has been shown to be a renewable source of fuel, food, and medicine, and can be grown in virtually any part of the world, and that the U.S. government deliberately hides the proof of this. He has devoted his life to the support of cannabis, hemp and marijuana. (SO HAS THE BANGER SISTERS, WE ARE ACTIVISTS….LOL ACTIVELY SMOKING).
Jack Herer is also the name given to a specific strain of cannabis that is considered by Herer to be among the world’s finest.
Herer ran for United States President twice, in 1988 (1,949 votes) and 1992 (3,875 votes) as the Grassroots Party candidate.
In July 2000, Herer suffered a minor heart attack and stroke, resulting in difficulties speaking and moving the right side of his body. As of May 2004, Herer has mostly recovered, claiming Cannabis Sativa was responsible for much of his recovery.
“ If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the greenhouse effect and stop deforestation; then there is only one known annually renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time… and that substance is the same one that has done it before . . . CANNABIS/HEMP/MARIJUANA!
As Bud heads we all need to thank Jack Herer in a major way, especially the states that have medical marijuana dispensaries (CALIFORNIA). He has been out here doing foot work putting it down for the decriminilization and legalization of marijuana for quite some time. I just want to thank Jack Herer for his hard work and his strain of herbals……..its definitely a fave on the Banger Sisters list.
