Jack Herer is my morning medicine. I take it daily every morning before work, and it turns me into a happy, focused, energized person completely capable of working and talking to people without tripping over my tongue. I was severely depressed for several months, then I started taking Jack every morning and my world view changed completely. And btw, reading the other reviews makes me shake my head in disapproval. For one thing, Jack is a sativa-dominant strain that will put your head in the clouds and it has just the perfect amount of indica in it to keep your feet on the ground. Do not expect it to work well as a sleep aid, people! Indicas are typically good for sleep and anxiety, sativas are typically good for energy and depression. Doing a sativa strain even early in the morning has affected my sleep pater that night, so be careful and make sure to have some indica to help you come down off the sativa high later on. Another thing that perplexed me, was reading about that guy who did a bunch of it in Amsterdam. Jack is a SUPER potent strain, I do not recommend doing like that guy did, he obviously did too much. Sativas can give you a bad trip, so to speak, if you do too much, at least for us types who have issues with anxiety. Jack can absolutely help you focus, if you do like one nice big hit off a vaporizer and let it ride. If you do too much you'll feel like you're on crack, at least that's been my experience with all sativa-dominants. Sativas are not to be taken lightly. It's not like indica where you can do bowl after bowl till you pass out. Sativa will energize you and speed up your thoughts, making it great for depression but not great for sleep aid or anxiety. Jack just happens to have the perfect blend of both to treat stress, depression, anxiety, and lack of motivation. This strain replaced my need for ADD and OCD prescription pills. Thank you, Sensi Seeds, for creating one of the best strains on the planet!!! -dbvapor
