The sativa high is happy, bubbly, and euphoric, spurring energy and creativity. Jack Herer is ideal for errands and other daytime activities. This strain is effective for patients with mental or neurological disorders, including bipolar disorder, anxiety, migraines, PTSD, and ADHD. Dry mouth and red eyes are common, along with occasional dizziness and paranoia. Jack Herer is popular throughout the United States, but, like many other strains, it’s most popular in the West. It’s a three-way hybrid with a 55:45 sativa/indica ratio, and it contains Skunk #1, a sativa-dominant hybrid; Northern Lights #5, an indica-dominant hybrid; and Haze, a pure sativa. These are all potent strains, and they make for a strong hybrid that offers effective relief from medical symptoms.
