What is a Haze?
Jack Haze is part of the “Haze” family of cannabis cultivars. The story of Haze dates back to the 1960s and 70s along the US West Coast. It’s there the legendary ‘Haze Brothers’ cultivated, purely by chance, a new breed of cannabis. Originally developed as a sativa-only strain, Haze is a family of cannabis cultivars that has grown to include both sativa and indica. The Haze family of cultivars is renowned for its THC content and unique aromatic displays. 7ACRES’ Jack Haze is the budding embodiment of a “Haze” strain, possessing a pungent, citrusy, terpinolene-dominant scent.
Did you know that the original Jack Haze almost didn’t take root? According to cannabis folklore, Haze was initially seen as difficult group of cultivars to grow and manage, taking a long time to flower. But these dedicated growers knew that good things come to those who wait. Since then, Haze has produced countless hybrid cultivars around the globe, spreading its genetics to countries as far as Colombia, Thailand and South India.
Jack Haze is 7ACRES’ first proprietary cultivar; a cultivar is a variety of cannabis, commonly referred to as a “strain”. The development of these genetics was led by the Cambium Plant Sciences team. After legalization, Canadian cannabis companies initially had access to only a handful of genetics. In order to bridge the gap between the formal and the informal market, Cambium Plant Sciences is in the process of obtaining, creating and offering rare and sought-after genetics. Jack Haze is the first foray into this world. We are excited at the opportunity to create new strains and genetics for our own brands, and for the industry as a whole.
Jack Haze produces rich, trichome-dense nugs. Trichomes are resin glands, also known as the small “crystals” or “hairs” that line the leaves and flowers of the cannabis plant. All of cannabis’ desirable chemicals, cannabinoids and terpenes, are produced within the trichome heads. A large density of trichomes is indicative of a high-quality cultivar.
Radiant bright green flowers and vibrant orange stigmas make up the bud, crafting a cultivar as visually appealing as it is enjoyable.
Jack Haze is the budding embodiment of what consumers have come to love about both Haze and the Jack Herer strains; a pungent, terpinolene-dominant aroma balanced with sweet citrus followed closely by pine then a warm, spice note. This cultivar packs a complex hybrid of terpenes that deliver one powerful experience.
When consumed, the Jack Haze cultivar has a uniquely pleasing crisp, zesty and evergreen flavour.
