The Jack Herer marijuana strain, named after the famous cannabis activist, is a legendary variety known for its balanced effect and complex flavor. Throughout the 1990s, this marijuana was considered the best on the planet, so much so that other similar Haze hybrids began to emerge that even surpassed it in some cases. In this article, we will take you through six strains that share traits with Jack Herer, from their genetics to their effects and flavors. These strains include renowned hybrids like Super Silver Haze and Amnesia, as well as autoflowering varieties like Jack Herer Auto.



Strains Similar to Jack Herer:



  • Super Silver Haze (Green House Seeds): Known for its potent cerebral effect and citrus flavor, Super Silver Haze shares a Haze lineage with Jack Herer and an energizing and euphoric experience. Jack Herer and Super Silver Haze emerged from crosses between Northern Lights#5 x Haze and Haze x Skunk#1 initially created by breeder Neville, although the latter was refined by the great Shantibaba.
  • Amnesia Haze (Spain Seeds): This strain is famous for its strong and lasting effect, and its citrus and spicy flavor profile. Amnesia offers a similar experience to Jack Herer, with a more intense focus on cerebral euphoria, and is thought to have come from the same mother plant as Jack Herer and Super Silver Haze, but it must be acknowledged that in some qualities Amnesia is superior.
  • Haze XXL Auto (PEV Seeds): An autoflowering version that retains the essential characteristics of Haze strains, offering a rapid life cycle without sacrificing quality. It is a great option for those looking for the effects and flavors of Jack Herer in an autoflowering format. Being XXL, the final harvest has nothing to envy of Jack Herer, but always with a much faster and simpler cultivation.
  • Ghost Train Haze (Rare Dankness): This variety is famous for its potent psychoactive effect and flavor profile that combines citrus notes with a hint of flowers. It shares with Jack Herer the Haze ancestors and intensity in effect, as well as its complex flavor. Although the Original Haze was bred on the west coast of the USA, all the varieties on this list appeared in Europe except for Ghost Train Haze, which is a work of breeder Scott from The Rare Dankness.
  • Moby Dick (Dinafem Seeds): Known for its high THC content, high yield, and potent effect, Moby Dick is an excellent alternative for lovers of Jack Herer looking for an even more intense experience. In this case, it is a cross between Jack Herer and White Widow, but most traits remind of the best Haze, therefore it is very similar to Jack Herer in general.
  • Jack Herer Auto (Various banks): The autoflowering version of Jack Herer maintains the qualities of the original strain, offering a similar flavor and effect in a faster and easier to grow format. If you want to try Jack Herer weed but don’t dare with the long-flowering varieties, both Haze XXL Auto and Jack Herer Auto can be perfect for you.
