Never worked with this strain myself, but yes, the word is that this one is tricky to work with if you are growing it for yield. It's a lot like White Widow in that it will often make long, loose buds rather than dense, tightly packed buds.

I meant the two strains that make up jack herer... I hear that they sorta war with each other.. Like it's more like to turn out to be one or the other but rarely jack herer.. Have u heard that before.. I'm sorry I'm so new and don't have the right vocabulary

And I should take a moment to say, getting a certain strain is not as easy as just pollinating one strain with another. Just like almost any other plant that is being hybridized, the resulting seed can end up being many different things with each seed getting a different amount of DNA from each parent. Once a strain displays qualities that the breeder desires they will often propagate from cuttings for years while working in the background with more breeding that will try to produce a plant that maintains those qualities while also getting it to a point where if you self cross it the result will be closer/near identical to what the parent is. This process is called stabilization. For the purposes of the database's parentage information the strains listed are the ones that were initially used to create the strain, but does not reflect any stabilization efforts.
