Information about Emerald Jack:
On its name, it is actually a play on its parents, both of which happens to be among the most popular ones. For strains to have a following, they must have something unique or extraordinary. Such is the case of Jack Herer and Emerald OG.
Emerald Jack has a dominant Sativa side, no doubt, an influence of Jack Herer. It is a multi-awarded strain that delivers intense cerebral effects as well as producing heavy resins.
On the other hand, Emerald Jack inherited its Indica side from Emerald OG, known for its ability to induce deep relaxation.
By combining the genetics of both parents, the breeder Emerald Triangle hopes to take the best traits and pass it on to the offspring. The result is a 70% Sativa hybrid that has a THC content of 20% to 24%.

In the case of Emerald Jack, though, it acts a little slow. As such, some people may think it is not potent.

It is because along with the excellent mental and body effects it induces, it also causes people to feel more anxious.

Having said that, a typical reaction to the use of cannabis is also evident with this one. Dry mouth and eyes are typical and are nothing more than a nuisance. In some instances, too, a few people may feel light headed.
The ability of Emerald Jack to alter moods has its benefits for medical marijuana users. One of which is to take away stress. For the same reason, it should also prove helpful in cases of depression and PTSD.
Also, as users feel euphoric, their mind is taken away from physical discomforts. Add to that the relaxing effects it induces, the strain offers pain relief if it is mild. As such people who are suffering from chronic illnesses including those with spasticity should find comfort with its use.

Not only is the Emerald Jack strain a Sativa-dominant plant, but it also grows like one. As such, it can reach up to 10 feet tall. Amidst the long emerald green leaves, its cone-shaped buds are covered with resinous crystals and orange hairs.
Fortunately, it is not a difficult plant to cultivate. Although there may be a learning curve for beginners. Regardless where growers prefer, it thrives equally well outdoor and indoor. Of course, if it is inside the house, the plant needs to be topped off early to keep it short and encourage a little more outward growth.
Compared to other Sativa plants, one can say that the Emerald Jack has a faster growth. That is because it reaches its flowering phase on the ninth week. Even better is the 18 to 26 ounces of buds it can produce.
Left to grow in the open, the plant justifies its height with a bountiful harvest of 24 ounces or possibly more. It should reach its flowering phase during mid-October.
