WHY IS JACK HERER THE BEST STRAIN TO SMOKE ON APRIL 15TH?
The strain is named in honor of one of the most renoun names in marijuana history, Jack Herer. As a cannabis activist and author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes, Jack Herer was able to alter the world’s perception of cannabis. Due to Jack Herer’s tireless fight to end marijuana prohibition and daw awareness to hemp’s industrial uses, Sensi Seeds felt honored to create his namesake strain.
Jack Herer passed away on April 15th 2010. In U.S., April 15th is also known as tax day. Jack Herer prided himself in the fact that he had not paid a penny to the U.S. government in over 30 years. Ironically, he died on tax day in 2010.
Jack Herer flowers have been recognized by the Netherlands government as medicinal, and are currently available with a prescription from Dutch pharmacies. However, the medical flowers have been renamed, Bedrocan. It is good to note that the medical program in the Netherlands is extremely strict and rather expensive. This is likely not something that Jack Herer would have hoped for.
