Jack Herer: A classic cannabis strain named in honor of a revolutionary activist.

Original Jack Herer

Passed down from the "Father of it All”, this is THE original Jack Herer! Named in honor of the revolutionary author and hemp activist, Jack Herer is a classic strain currently being stewarded by his son Dan. Each jar comes complete with Mr. Herer’s face on it, and as if that wasn’t enough to convince you, the look and smell of these frosty green buds will certainly do the trick. Each chunky flower screams with big notes of citrus, accentuated by dank spicy pine, lemon candy, and a hint sour earth that lingers in the background. Long revered for its uplifting effects, Jack instantly increases one’s energy level, imparting an invigorating, joyful stimulation. Fun, creative, and distinctly focusing, it allows the user to engage with the day on their own terms, inspiring them towards creative, personally enriching endeavors. Add to that the calming, full-body stone that begins to sink in later on in the experience, and you’re left with a near-perfect daytime flower, ideal for easing stress, depression, fatigue, nausea, and mild to moderate pain.

Spicy, resinous smoke provides a dreamy, uplifting buzz.

3 Bros
Black Cherry Cookies

Extremely dense and deliciously fresh, this indica is one of the best Cookies strains we’ve ever seen. A deluge of creamy trichomes washes over the tightly-packed buds, overwhelming tufts of delicate, light brown pistils. The nose is definitely reminiscent of a classic GSC, but it strikes its own unique profile with added notes of nutty gas, spicy clove, and a balancing earth. Remarkably flavorful on the exhale, the spicy, resinous smokes provides a dreamy, uplifting buzz, perfect for eradicating stress and anxiety. As the experience ripens, a pleasant stone sinks into the mind, stimulating thought and a bit of hazy creativity. The body high stays rather light, making this flower a good choice for afternoon use, especially for those who prefer a heavier buzz.

Kosher Kush

Nugs completely drenched in crystals. And with consistent THC levels of 25% or more, this flower will never disappoint. Expect an extremely potent, relaxing, and sedating high that will leave the user with a very stony case of the giggles, and a voracious appetite. Perfect for watching that movie before you fall asleep, and absolutely ideal for the treatment of pain (body, muscle, and joint), insomnia, and appetite loss. Also, it should be noted that this is the first strain to ever be blessed by a Rabbi. With credentials like that, this flower is difficult to pass up.
