INDOOR- 21 ounces per square meter / OUTDOOR - 42 ounces per plant
Named after Jack, the Emperor of Hemp, Critical Jack is a cross between Critical Plus and Jack Herer. And for those who are clueless, Jack Herer is a pro-cannabis American activist. He penned, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes,” a book towards legalizing marijuana. To pay homage to him, the latter strain borrowed his name.
Critical Jack is an even hybrid. Its balanced high will leave you a clear mind and mellow buzz. Its aroma is of sweet pine and floral lemon/citrus. It has a feminine scent contrary to its manly name. Best used at daytime, it yields bountifully up to 42 ounces per plant when cultivated outdoors. Harvest time is about 60 days indoors and between the end days of September to early October when grown outdoors. Just like its plant origin, the Jack Herer strain, it gained distinction when it won the top prize on the San Bernardino Hempcon Cup last 2015.
What are the Flavor and Effects of Critical Jack?

On the onset, a feeling of dizziness may be felt depending on the person’s tolerance and experience. Rarely, an increase in anxiety levels may occur.

How to Grow Critical Jack?
Critical Jack survives both the indoor and outdoor environments.
Indoors, you can use hydroponics (soilless gardening) combined with the Screen of Green method for taller harvests. Note that you have to keep it short and topped as not to crowd the indoor space available. It has a flowering time of 8 weeks and a yield of about 21 ounces per square meter.
Outdoors, an expected yield of over 40 ounces, will be available in late September towards early October.
