Herijuana is a descendant of a Humboldt County strain called Petrolia Headstash, an Indica of Afghani origins and a Kentucky landrace hybrid (possibly Killer New Haven).
In 2006, Sannie of Sannie’s seeds inherited Herijuana, also called Herojuana, from Motarebel when the breeder had to take a hiatus from growing. Motarebel had acquired Herijuana from Woodhorse Seeds and had carefully tweaked the strain to perfection. Sannie and Motarebel often traded and worked on genetics together, so it was only natural for him to take the temporarily orphaned strain.
Herijuana can have nearly 25% THC in a 100 milligram sample, and as a result it can have a positive effect on both head and body. It may be thought-provoking and meditative, and it can alleviate stress and anxiety. This strain may help regulate mood disorders, including chronic depression. The numbing effect on the body relieves pain and eases muscle twitches and spasms. Herijuana may also help with ADD/ADHD, migraines, and arthritis. Eventually, its sedative effects can put users into a deep sleep.
This strain, which smells like spicy earth, is recommended for growing indoors but some have had success in cultivating it outdoors. Herijuana grows anywhere from two to more than three meters tall and needs between seven and nine weeks to reach harvest. Fairly resistant to temperature fluctuations, mold, and fungal disease, this strain can be a good choice for beginners. It can be grown with the Sea of Green, Screen of Green or super cropping techniques. Herijuana may produce 500 grams or more per square meter.
Herijuana is marked by large, clustered green buds that adhere due to their incredibly sticky consistency. Some phenotypes have shades of purple in the leaves, the result of high concentrations of plant pigments called anthocyanins being activated by cold weather during the vegetative stage. The densely-packed flowers are famous for their resin (Herijuana may have been one of the first strains used to produce hash) and have a heavy coating of silver-white trichomes. The aroma of this strain is very complex, with a simultaneously sweet and musky scent, redolent of spice, sandalwood, pine, and wet earth. The musky odor intensifies when flowers are combusted and smoked. The resulting smoke is harsh and cough-inducing; when exhaled, smoke tastes vaguely like pine. The overall flavor impression of Herijuana is one of incense and herbs.
