Another review, another chance to spread the word on Green Barn Farms. We’ll be taking a close look at the Washington producer’s iteration of Jack Herer. The bud was procured from Hashtag (located in Fremont, on Stone Ave – charming ol’ purple building), and recommended by the fine budtenders that work there.

Look at those dense nugs. All roasted, toasted, and covered with love. A mix of tropical and deep forest greens atop an antler. Lately I’ve gotten into the habit of stacking my buds when taking a photo op, something about creating a cairn of cannabis makes me happy.
The smell was, in a word, voluptuous. Like the cartoons where the beckoning scent of a hot pie on a window literally draws you in, Jack Herer has a scent that demands attention. The pine is unmistakable, giving way to hints of hay and flowers.
Smoking the strain yielded a particularly lemon taste, carrying over from the pine smell. The flavor was, as usual, stronger out of a vaporizer then out of a pipe.
Getting high with Jack Herer is truly a relaxed experience, you’ll feel like a smooth operator with any task, or situation. The creativity runs strong with this strain, embrace your interests and let them go forth.
A good sativa gives you a fresh, airy buzz – and this nug does just that. When smoking this strain, I’d often use it as a “pick-me-up”. After enjoying a few sessions throughout the day, Jack Herer would be the bud to shake off the scales of burnout – and power through to a second wind. There was really no getting tired after smoking this strain, hit it and go. Keep going.
