Type: Sativa-Dominant Hybrid (% breakdown unknown)

Genotype:  Jack Herer  =  Haze  X  [Northern Lights #5  X  (Northern Lights #5  X  Skunk #1)]

The genetics listed above does not necessarily represent the lineage of this Ataraxia phenotype #8. I did not reach out to Ataraxia for the genetics. I believe there are three phenotypes for Jack Herer: 1, 7, and 8.

A multiple CC winner, Jack Herer was originally bred by Sensi Seeds. It was named after a well-known cannabis activist.

Phenotype Profile:
This sample consisted of basically one big bud. Large calyxes surrounded by random orange hairs and lots of trich development. Mostly light greens with tinges of yellow.  These were on the lighter end of denseness though on the mark for this strain.           
       Bud Density: 3.5  [1-5]

Terpene Profile:
 Beta-Caryophyllene 0.1907%; Deta-3-Carene 0.0609%; p-Cymene 0.3908%; Guaiol 0.0490%; Alpha-Humulene 0.0603%; Limonene 0.2016%; Beta-Myrcene 0.3187%; Nerolidol 0.2738%; Alpha-Pinene 0.1439%; Beta-Pinene 0.2307% Alpha-Terpinene 0.0531%  (ACT Labs)

In its intact state, these buds emitted lemon, pine and distinct Haze notes. I also detected a very mild floral aroma. When ground, this bud smelled of lemon and pine up front, followed by a slight sweet Haze with floral notes. The smoke tasted of lemon and pine with a Haze presence at the end, especially on the exhale.

The effects of this #8 cut were cerebral on the whole, with lots of euphoria. I did not experience any raciness with this one. Reminiscent of Maui heirlooms, this was a pleasant high that offered lots of good vibes with very mild body relaxation at the end. Quite potent at these numbers. Lot's of clarity. For me, it was too clear headed. It’s worth mentioning that I have spoken to a few patients who have told me they feel a relatively strong body component to this JH #8. Some even describe a hard crash at the end.    

Duration of Effects:
1.5-2 hours, depending on dosage

May Help With:
Helped with fatigue and stress. May also help with nerve pain, mild body pain, muscle symptoms, depression, creativity booster, appetite (and more)

Rating: 5/5
Another Ataraxia flower that is connoisseur-level. An interesting cut of Jack Herer that I think expresses some of the best qualities of this strain. Would love to try an extract of this!
