This iconic strain gets its name from a legendary activist who campaigned for the American presidency twice. While this icon is no longer with us, his book (The Emperor Wears No Clothes) and his legacy still live on today.
Also known as JH, The Jack, Platinum Jack
Haze, Northern Lights #5, Shiva Skunk
These are the next-generation of terpene profiles. The Signature Series contains cannasulfur compounds (CSCs) to impart that gassy, skunky flavor and aroma that matches exactly with the flower's metabolic fingerprint.2
It all starts with authenticity. If every terpene company is selling the same cultivars and the formulas are all wildly different, then which one is the closest to the real authentic cannabis?
In an industry plagued with knockoffs that are renamed for more commercial appeal, it is vital to ensure the flower we are basing our blends upon is an authentic sample from a reliable source.
Are they even measuring cannabis?
Lets find out...
There are four key terpenes that are largely responsible for the flavor and aroma of Jack Herer.
|Sample / Blend||Terpinolene||d-Limonene||ß-Phellandrene||trans-ß-Ocimene|
|Jack Herer Flower||34%||2%||9%||9%|
|Competitor 1 Blend||40%||11%||0%||0%|
|Competitor 2 Blend||53%||14%||0%||0%|
|Competitor 3 Blend||52%||8%||0%||0%|
Storage: We strongly recommend leaving Signature Series profiles unopened until ready for use. After they’re opened you’ll want to keep them in a dark refrigerator at below 36F to preserve the wonderful sensitive aroma of cannabis. Storing them improperly will result in aroma degradation. Similar to a jar of flower, the more you open and expose it to air and light, the more likely the gas will degrade/lose potency. For absolute best results, use within 3 months of receiving.
Handling: Wear gloves and eye protection when handling. Use in a properly ventilated area and out of the reach of children. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes, wood surfaces, and fabrics.
Usage: These are highly concentrated food grade terpenes and flavors for manufacturer use only. Do not directly ingest, inhale, or touch with bare skin prior to dilution. For dilution and mixing recommendations, click here for our mixing guide.
With each state having unique and differing regulations regarding terpene blends and flavor additives, the blends that may be approved for use in one state may not be acceptable for use in another state, and vice versa.
Please coordinate with your Abstrax sales representative about the compliance of these blends in your respective state/country. Each state has ever-evolving regulations and it is important that our customers ensure they are in compliance with their respective regulatory bodies.

Abstrax is the only terpene manufacturer licensed in the United States to study, extract, and formulate our own cannabis terpene profiles. Every other terpene company us relying on third-party labs to perform analytics with questionable and varying quality. We work directly with the best cultivators to map their cannabis at its peak freshness completely in-house. We’re not selling knockoffs based off guesswork or some cheap imitation.LEARN MORE
Both the Signature Series and the Native Series contain cannasulfur compounds (CSCs) to impart that gassy, skunky flavor and aroma that matches exactly with the flower’s metabolite fingerprint.2
They’re both powered by the same underlying technology, but the Signature Series is made in full partnership with the original cultivator so that it’s a perfect representation.
Yes and no.
You still use them just like regular terpene profiles, but the cannasulfur compounds are volatile and will evaporate if you open the cap too much. We strongly recommend that you leave them capped and sealed until you’re ready to make products.
Think of it like a jar of flower. The more you open it, the more the aroma degrades.
We set out to accomplish four things with the Signature Series:
It is shockingly common to find knockoff products that have been renamed for more marketability to help with their commercial appeal. There is nobody out there testing these products to see if this Gelato is actually Gelato, for example. You can call your product anything and get away with it.
Brands who own the rights to these names are stuck playing whack-a-mole trying to stop knockoffs. Consumers are buying products thinking they’re paying for one thing while unfortunately getting something else.
We have the capability to do better. The future of commercial cannabis is brands. Brand name strains, cultivators, and companies. It’s inevitable and, what’s more, it’s a good thing. It pushes cultivators to create more unique and excellent products in order to stand out. Consumers can have a wider selection of incredible cannabis. And for those companies who are selling knockoffs, this is an opportunity to give your customers what they want. An opportunity to sell the real thing.

The work that goes into a Signature Series profile is unheard of in the terpene space. We’re not joking when we say that we’ve invested thousands of hours into getting these products perfect.
We are working directly with the world’s best cultivators who are making the most iconic and in-demand strains today.
Hey, glad you asked.
No other terpene company has our capabilities. Abstrax is the only terpene manufacturer licensed in the United States to study, extract, and formulate our own cannabis terpene profiles. Every other terpene company is relying on third-party labs to perform analytics with questionable and varying degrees of quality.
We are the only terpene company in the world with a GCxGC (pronounced GC cross GC.) This is proprietary technology that allows us to test for well over 400 compounds found in cannabis. Other labs test for, on average, around 30-40 compounds. To put it another way, our analytical capabilities are at least 10x greater. It’s like using an electron microscope versus a magnifying glass. Other terpene companies might as well be formulating in the dark.
Even if other terpene manufacturers work directly with cultivators, they are still throwing darts blindfolded trying to guess the correct ingredients. And no other terpene company is using cannasulfur compounds (the ingredients Abstrax discovered that give cannabis its distinctive aroma) so their resulting formula will smell like just a bottle of terps and nothing like the original flower.
Only Abstrax can deliver authenticity.
Each collection does something different.
