Jack Herer is also known as the ‘Emperor of Hemp.’ or ‘The Hemperor’. He was born on June 18, 1939 in Buffalo, NY. He was a pro-cannabis and hemp activist. During his time as an activist, he believed that marijuana plants should be decriminalized. He had an idea that the plant could be used as a renewable source of medicine, food, fuel, and fiber. Herer also believed that it could be grown in any area of the world and be used for medicinal purposes.
The cannabis strain was created by breeders in the Netherlands in the mid 1900s. The strain quickly became popular and the breeders wanted to honor the legend’s contribution to the cannabis world, so they named it after Jack Herer himself.
