The history of Jack's Cleaner began when Subcool from TGA Subcool Seeds went out and got his first computer, back in 1994. He began chatting with another grower with the nickname "Skoosh" on one of the grow chat rooms of the time. Eventually, Skoosh offered to send Subcool some seeds of a strain that went by the same name as his nickname. When the 200 seeds arrived, Subcool started the search for a keeper of the strain, a cross of Pluton, Lamb's Bread, Purple Haze and Northern Lights. Of all the phenotypes the breeder saw, only one of them looked promising, it smelled like Mr. Clean, so the strain became named The Cleaner. Subcool had a Jack Herer male from Sensi Seeds that he did not just want to toss out, so he placed it away from the rest of his grow with a clone of The Cleaner. After growing out the resulting 35 seeds, he found the one destined to be Jack's Cleaner.
Clearing the mind of any anxiety or stress, this Sativa-dominant hybrid is energetic and euphoric. Inexperienced users should respect the strain and approach it with caution as it may cause them to feel nervous or paranoid. Potentially great medication to help with fatigue, inflammation, glaucoma, migraines and mood disorders, Jack's Cleaner tastes like lemons and earth, with hints of fuel. This strain can have a subtle body high that eventually takes over, causing users to become hungry and ready for a nap.
The original Jacks Cleaner, TGA Subcool seeds has since released Jacks Cleaner 2 and Jacks Cleaner BX, can be rather hard to find.
As for growing the strain, some say it can finish in about eight weeks but that seems early for a Sativa. Likewise listed yields of up to 400 grams per square meter may be a bit higher than reality. Jacks Cleaner has been tested to have a THC count over 16 percent.
