Jock Horror was developed by Nirvana. Its father was a Northern Lights plant, but it got its skunk heritage from its mother, a Haze 19 that was crossed with Skunk #1. Its lineage is modeled on that of Jack Herer, which probably began with a male Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk cross that was then crossed with a Haze mother plant. Like Jack Herer, Jock Horror is a Sativa-dominant strain. Its taste is fruity, and it produces primarily cerebral effects.
The strong psychoactive effects of the strain are often exhilarating and make it good for daytime use. Jock Horror can sometimes be described as thought-provoking. It is most often prescribed to patients suffering from anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
Jock Horror was released in the mid-1980s and quickly became popular. Many growers have cultivated it successfully indoors. New growers, however, are often advised not to attempt growing Jock Horror inside as it can become rather tall and produce a powerful skunk smell. Outdoors, it can reach a height of over 10 feet. Nirvana recommends growing these plants in organic soil. Taking up to 11 weeks to be ready for harvest, the strain can finish in as little as nine and is usually ready in October outdoors. It can do well in a Sea of Green where it can produce up to 500 grams per square meter. The THC count of Jock Horror can reach as high as 24%.
Flowering period is approximately 9-11 weeks, best grown outdoors
