Jack Herer can be grown either indoors outdoors, but it fares best when grown outdoors in a warm, dry climate. Jack Herer takes between 50-70 days to mature and flower. Plants grow better when allowed to grow freely, rather than in pots. Plants tend to grow fairly tall, as sativas tend to do. Plant yield is medium. Buds are typically pale yellowish green, dense and round, making it appear more like an indica than a sativa. Buds are covered in a thick layer of trichomes, making it sticky to the touch. This is another strain where you will want to use a grinder prior to smoking or vaping.
Jack Herer Flavor/ AromaJack Herer smells earthy and piney, with a nice hint of citrus. Though strong, it’s quite a refreshing aroma.

Breaking apart buds however, unleashes the full power of the delicious aroma that is Jack Herer The flavor of Jack Herer is a bit different than the smell. It tastes more like herbal tea with more than a hint of lemon. The flavor is partiularly delicious when it is vaped.
