Buying a cannabis seed is not an easy task. It’s not about choosing the one with the flashiest name or the first one you see. No! You have to know its properties. This is the only way to determine what type of seed it is, the percentage of THC and CBD it has, its yield, the climatic conditions required to obtain greater benefits in its cultivation, the height of the plants, the right place to do it, among others.
There are three species of cannabis, which are: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. From them, different seeds were generated. These seeds can be classified into three types, which have well-defined characteristics: regular, feminized and auto-flowering.
For example, the Jack Herer cannabis seed was created in the 90s by crossing 3 hybrids, which are Haze, Skunk#1 and Northern Lights. It is considered one of the most exquisite varieties. So much so that it has won many awards in this regard.
Among the outstanding properties of this Sativa-dominant seed is that it has several phenotypes. Firstly, the Indica which gives it a wide and darker leaf pattern and moderate flowering. Secondly, with Sativa predominance, the most used in the recreational area; and the phenotype that combines the two previous ones, which differs for its green sawed leaves and average size.
It has a high level of THC (20-22%) and its yield is higher if it is grown in an indoor area. In addition, it has an intense aroma and flavor, which combines the acidity of the lemon with spices.
One of the versions of this variety of cannabis plant is John Herer, which results from the cross with the recognized O.G. Kush, 70% Sativa and 30% Indica. It stands out for its high level of THC which gives it a powerful effect, as well as having an intense flavor. This version has also obtained recognition because it is ideal for BHO extractions.
Both versions are similar in taste, which combines earthy nuances with hints of incense, resulting in an intense and dense taste for any palate. It can be grown both indoors and outdoors, but its growth will be totally different in terms of size and yield.
