While the real Jack Herer died in 2010 — his legacy lives on in the form of this strain. Genetically, this strain is bred from a mix of the strain Haze and a crossbreed of Northern Lights and Shiva Skunk. The nugs are typically dense with vibrant green with yellow trichomes and bright yellow-orange pistils.
