I tested the Herer Hashplant (vintage Jack Herer x 88g13hp) for bodhi last year. Here's a summary of my very positive tester experience with the strain.
I'd say phenos range from mostly sativa to good hybrids to mostly indica. Good variety! They were pretty easy to grow. Reasonably vigorous, and great side branching for the most part. They vegged for 57 days from seed sprout, and were between 12-15" when flipped. They stretched about 100% on average, so they basically doubled in size.
I ended up with 5 females out of the 8 that made it to flower. #1, 4, 6, 7 and 8 from the above pic were female. Due to plant counts, I couldn't run them all at once, so I ran 1, 4 and 6 first, then the last two later. They all went 9 weeks, but a couple prolly could have been taken down at 8. They were flowered under 400w of 3500k Cree CXB3590 COBs @ 1400ma in a 4x4 tent. They were in #5 pots about halfway filled with recycled organic living soil, so they had around 2 - 2.5 gallons of soil each. With so little soil, they ended up starting their natural organic fade in week 7.
I let the first 3 go untopped to see how much the JH influenced them. I had one strong Jack Herer leaner, several awesome but unique hybrids, and one HP leaner that still showed a little JH influence. Here's some flower shots of the three from the first run. Left to right - 1, 4, 6 - with #1 being the JH leaner, 4's a great hybrid, and 6 is the HP leaner.
These were the standouts from the pack.
Pheno #4 is one of the frostiest plants I've ever seen. The pure champagne mango smell of this was special. Zoom in on those trichs.
Pheno #6 had that beautiful black fade typical of bodhi's 88g13hp-leaners and smelled ultra earthy.
Pheno #8 was quite the hybrid, golden and purple and frosty frosty frosty. She smelled really good too, blueberries and mint.
Here are the dry nug shots and a few smoke report notes, no filters or editing other than resizing, taken with a handheld LG G3 phone camera under natural skylight.
Pheno #1 sage and mint and sandalwood and musty cellar aromas, but tasted kinda like cat piss smells, with a hint of sweetness. Smooth smoke, heady, not especially strong. Gave away most of this one before getting a good feel for it. Big fluffy nugs that looked frostier in the pic than they were in person, but man were these great for rolling doobies!
Pheno #4 was some of the most potent weed I've ever smoked, mind warping & super motivating sativa, amazing caramelized mango dessert flavor and STRONG smell (people liken it to the Golden Goat smell) with a light undercurrent of onion and old school hash. Very smooth but definitely a lung expander. I called it the housewife pheno, not from a sexist perspective, but because smoking this immediately made me HAVE to do housework or start cleaning something. Really amazing effects, but don't smoke after dark or you'll be up all night chewing your tongue, polishing kitchen cabinet hardware like a methhead. While they look fluffy, these are actually pretty dense nugs, and just absolutely coated with resin - it looks like velcro. Literally trichs on top of trichs.
Pheno #6 smelled amazing in jars - sweet and floral, strong notes of Cascade hops. Smelled very much like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Her smoke was pretty medicinal for pain, but caused extreme Extreme EXTREME!!! munchies, and had a minty marshmallow flavor. This one makes me eat everything in the house, and then, when I run out of things to eat, I have this overwhelming urge to start making concoctions of nuts, sugar, herbs and spices...basically anything I can find in the kitchen cupboards. OM NOM NOM NOM NOM lol!! This is not a weight loss drug. Broncho-dialator. Opens up the lungs like an inhaler. Was good, but not great. I didn't do her justice with the shit trim job. Smaller, shorter trichs than the others. I thought the nugs would be denser than they turned out. Was going to keep her, but then found better pain relief strains.
Pheno #7 had a weaker mango smell than #4, with an obvious onion up front. She tasted like green apples and mango with a hint of hash, and had immediately upbeat yet short-lived effects, but was not standout in any particular way. Made me feel like I couldn't walk and chew bubblegum at the same time. She was very heavy on the lungs. Least productive of the 5 females. Loose, smaller nugs.
Pheno #8 smelled of blueberry & mint in the jar, but took a couple months to develop the flavor to match. She with great hybrid effects, starting with a body buzz like a mellow cup of coffee, then giving way to fidgety energy without the jitters. She was potent and productive enough to be a keeper. Her nugs were ultra frosty and sticky, solid and weighty - she's a real crowd pleaser.
I reran #4 a couple of times, was gonna keep it and #8, but then life got in the way and I lost them. But I should note that they all cloned well and performed the same during subsequent runs inside and outdoors, even with different soil mixes. I never heard back about my test report after submitting it, but the cross was released so I'll hang my hat on that. Herer HP was 100% completely rock solid, hardy, and sexually stable, like most of bodhi's 88g13hp crosses. That male is a true keeper!
Also, I made F2 from the first run of 3 to revisit if it didn't get released. I saved some of that pollen and called it the Jumping Jack Hashplant (jjhp) in homage to its upbeat effects. When the cross was released as Herer HP, I gave away all the F2 to friends from this thread and elsewhere. @torontoke ran a few of them, noted in his journal at RIU, and found some heady JH leaners I think. Sad to say, I tried to make more F2 on subsequent clone runs, but my pollen was no longer viable, so the second F2 run didn't pan out. I plan to buy another pack in the future to revisit. Herer HP was that good.
Again, I just want to reiterate how much I wish BreedBay was back. It was nice to have a place to converse and share info openly with bodhi. If it ever comes back, here's the link to this tester growlog: https://www.breedbay.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?201365597-Testers-Jack-Herer-x-88g13hp.
