Episode 6: Jack Haze

Sweet Citrus, Crisp Pine and Warm Spice — Thoughtfully Selected

If you asked us what 7ACRES’ hallmark cultivar is, we would tell you it’s Jack Haze. We genuinely love to grow and enjoy our beloved Jack Haze strain. It is a fresh, bright green, Sativa-dominant strain – a unique cross between White Widow and Haze, with rare sensory characteristics – its terpinolene-dominant aromatic profile is definitely valued for such rarity. This is a truly special and one-of-a-kind cultivar, and our community loves it for great reasons.

As you might know, we are continuously working on developing new genetics in-house. During the pheno-hunt for our treasured Jack Haze cultivar, we were drawn to its brilliant green colas housing dense buds, abundant terpenes, and powerful aromatics.

Our 7ACRES Jack Haze holds notes of sweet citrus, crisp pine, and warm spices. It’s a mixture of sugar and spice and everything nice – sharp and sweet notes; which are representative of a classic Haze cultivar, mixed with a unique spicy aroma. Jack’s aromatic profile surely transfers to its taste profile – and enthusiasts value Jack Haze for having such a uniquely beautiful flavour and aroma.

As cannabis enthusiasts, we recognize that high-THC isn’t the sole criteria to look out for in a high-end cannabis cultivar. However, for our community members who do prefer a high-THC strain, Jack Haze has you covered. It is a highly potent cultivar – the average THC percentage is 17 – 23%, along with 2-4% terpenes packed in each jar. For an experienced cannabis enthusiast, it will definitely take you where you need to go. If you’re new to using cannabis, then always go ‘low and slow’ when trying new cannabis products, especially ones with higher THC levels. That way, you can safely discover your best usage practices and proceed from there comfortably. And 7ACRES proudly offers our hallmark Jack Haze, along with many different high-quality premium cannabis products for you to discover at your own pace.


Jack Haze has some magic to share in its terpene profile – namely, a terpinolene-forward profile. It is unique to find a cultivar that is dominant in terpinolene. The terpenes present in our Jack Haze are as follows in order of prominence: Terpinolene, Beta-Myrcene, Beta-Ocimene, and Beta-Caryophyllene. Jack Haze’s sweet and citrusy aroma is in part a result of the prominence of terpinolene.

Now…let’s take a deep dive into the unsaturated hydrocarbons – aka terpenes – that are the reason for Jack’s distinct aroma and flavour profile.

Terpinolene is one of the rarer terpenes to be found in cannabis as the dominant terpene. And as we mentioned, Jack is a unique strain that is well-loved for this rarity. But terpinolene doesn’t lurk in the shadows – it actually has such prominence even in low levels. This is another element that makes Jack Haze such a unique cultivar.

In producing terpinolene (along with other terpenes and cannabinoids of course), a cannabis plant defends itself against pests and fungal pathogens due to terpinolene’s larvicidal and antifungal properties. Terpinolene is naturally emitted from tissues and essential oils in different plant species, especially trees. It has a pungent aromatic profile that matches the forest; earthy and fresh with a little hit of citrus.

Terpinolene is found naturally in apples, nutmeg, sage, rosemary, cumin, oregano, coriander, sweet basil, celery, ginger, Scots pine, and valerian; to name a few – so you can imagine its floral, herbal scent, with uplifting pine notes. The highest concentration of terpinolene in nature is found in wild parsnips, which you might recognize as having a herbal, pine-ish scent. In various orange species, navel, tangerine, mandarin, bergamot, and sweet orange – terpinolene is an element of their citrusy fruit oils. Terpinolene is also an element of pine oil and tea tree oil.

Beta Myrcene is the second most prominent terpene housed in our Jack’s beautiful buds. Unlike terpinolene, myrcene is one – if not the most – common terpene found in a cannabis plant. It is also most likely to be the dominant terpene. Beta-Myrcene is found in hops, and beer’s spicy, peppery aroma is a result of this terpene. Myrcene is also found in lemongrass, thyme, mango, apricots, carrots, cotton, valencia oranges, pistachios, and walnuts, among others.

Beta Ocimene and Beta Caryophyllene are the other terpenes present in our beloved Jack Haze strain.

Beta Ocimene can be found in a large variety of plants. It offers us sweet and earthy flavours and with citrusy (and woody) undertones. It is popular to use in fragrances for this reason. Ocimene is found in mangoes, basil, bergamot, lavender, pepper, mint, parsley, orchids, among many others. Ocimene also acts as a pest defense, as certain damaging pests avoid plants with this terpene.

Beta Caryophyllene is another highly abundant terpene found in cannabis. It is known for its herbal spiciness with hints of wood, and it is found in black pepper, cinnamon, hops, and more. It has a strong spicy and peppery aroma. Interestingly, caryophyllene has been observed by scientists to be one of the first non-cannabinoids that activates cannabinoid receptors directly, so it has powerful unique properties that are being continuously studied.

So by now, you’ve gotten to know Jack a bit better – and you can see why this high-end cultivar is very well-loved by our vibrant community of cannabis enthusiasts who wish to Accept Nothing Less.
