About Jack Herer Shake Weed
Jack Herer, also known as “JH,” “The Jack,” “Premium Jack,” and “Platinum Jack” is a sativa-dominant marijuana strain that has gained as much renown as its namesake, the marijuana activist and author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes. Combining a Haze hybrid with a Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk cross, Sensi Seeds created Jack Herer hoping to capture both cerebral elevation and heavy resin production. Its rich genetic background gives rise to several different variations of Jack Herer, each phenotype bearing its own unique features and effects. However, consumers typically describe this 55% sativa hybrid as blissful, clear-headed, and creative.
What is Shake?
Shake, quite simply, consists of small pieces of the cannabis flower that have broken off the full flower bud. Shake is found at the bottom of cannabis dispensary jars filled with flower buds or the bag that holds your purchased bud. Shake is a completely normal by-product of handling and moving marijuana flower. It’s used in pre-rolls or sold separately.
It’s important to note, some cannabis consumers look down on shake as being lesser quality. This can be an error in judgment. While shake cannot be compared to a full, top-tier marijuana flower bud, shake can have a decent cannabinoid profile, especially if you purchase your cannabis flower from a high-quality dispensary.
