Information about Jock Horror:
Jock Horror is a play at one of the famous names in the world of marijuana – Jack Herer. Although no one seems to know what about the strain necessitated attaching horror to its name, one thing it does well is to jack up its users. In particular, this is one strain that can deliver an intense euphoric high.
Jack Herer, created by Sensi Seeds, is a great strain and named after a friend of the cannabis community. Looking at its genetic lineage, it is clear that both strains share the same family tree. In fact, they both have the same exact sets of parents – Northern Lights, Haze, and Skunk No. 1.
All parent strains are legendary in their own rights. They are also among the world’s most famous strains and have each been used to create countless other hybrids.
As far as we can gather, it appears that the Jock Horror is a phenotype of Jack Herer. As such, it does have similarities in that both are Sativa dominant. However, it is the manifestation of their effects that differ.

All marijuana can induce mind or body blowing experiences. At the same time, it also comes with annoying effects. Among the most common unwanted effects are having dry mouth and eyes.

Jock Horror is not the hardest plant to grow. However, some experience is needed for successful cultivation. It grows up to 10 feet tall outdoor with a conical shape with narrow leaves on long side stems. It also thrives in a Mediterranean climate.
But to maximize the potential of the plant, the best environment is to use hydroponics indoor. Topping it early to keep it short as well as using the Screen of Green training technique should help boost its yield. Not that it is a big producer, far from it, this particular cannabis plant’s yield is average.
After growing the plant for 9 weeks, it is ready for the next stage. Waiting a couple of weeks more is at the discretion of growers. Although its yield can be as little as 7 ounces per square meter, high-quality seeds and expert care can raise it to 16 ounces.
Getting one’s hands on the tight buds heavily frosted with crystals, it will require a lot of attention and care. Tending becomes more important as it approaches it flowering stage beginning the third week of October. But the results of hard work pays off with a harvest of up to 16 ounces of buds per plant.
