After I decided to review energetic sativa strains for a series of its own, dispensary workers and friends kept suggesting I try Aeriz’s Jack Herer. It’s a renowned sativa-dominant daytime strain named after the late cannabis activist, Jack Herer. The strain combines a Haze hybrid with a Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk cross. I wanted to try, but supplies ran out before I could visit the dispensary. So I kept an eye on the menu, and the next time Sunnyside in Champaign listed Jack Herer, I purchased an eighth.
If I could use only one word to describe Jack Herer, it would be smooth. Smooth in its aroma, flavor and high. The entire eighth consisted of one huge bud and two medium buds. The bright green buds with orange hairs were the perfect density for packing and smoking. No need to grind.
The high was, well, smooth. It had a strong head and body buzz that left me with a floating and blissful euphoria. I was able to focused on work with creative energy and clear-headedness. The aroma had a mild earthy pine scent and a hint of orange and lemon spice. Sweet orange and lemon flavors hit the palate on the inhale, and the aftertaste consisted of the mild earthy pine.
Jack Herer definitely makes the cut for energetic sativa strains. I can see myself incorporating this strain into my “Work Sativa” rotation. Aeriz, based in Anna, is a national medical cannabis brand that incorporates an aeroponic growing process, which uses a recyclable grow medium instead of soil.
