Jacks + Haze: Classification of Cannabis by THC and Terpenes
The Jacks and Haze Class is known for having similar terpene profiles. Both cultivars are high in the terpenes terpinolene, caryophyllene, and pinene.

Terpene profiles are becoming increasingly recognized as being more important than THC levels in determining the overall effects of cannabis. Terpenes are the compounds and essential oils responsible for the unique aromas and flavors of cannabis, and they also have a significant impact on the cannabis plant's purported effects when interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system. Therefore, understanding the terpene profile of a cannabis strain can provide a more accurate picture of its potential effects and health benefits than simply looking at its THC levels.
This new understanding is changing how we group cultivars in more than just indica and sativa. The Emerald Cup Cannabis Classification System based on PhytoFacts® powered by SC Labs is helping to reframe the conversation regarding what defines “quality” in cannabis. The Emerald Cup, SC Labs and NAPRO Research, have created an alliance to help revolutionize the collective understanding of the true role cannabis terpenes play as one of the primary metrics to judge quality. They are also shedding light on the impact these precious and volatile terpenes play in establishing and enhancing the entourage effect. They are attempting to redefine the relationship between cannabinoids and terpene ratios, and how terpenes correlate to the flavors, aromas and possibly the effects of cannabis.
Jacks + Haze Class
Jack Herer and Haze cultivars are known for their similar terpene profiles. Both strains are high in the terpenes terpinolene, caryophyllene, and pinene. Terpinolene is known for its gassy, piney aroma and woody flavor. Caryophyllene has an earthy, spicy and woody aroma and flavor. Pinene has an earthy and pine-like aroma and flavor. The presence of these terpenes in both of these predominantly sativa strains may contribute to their similar effects, which are purported to provide cerebral, uplifting and energizing effects.
