Jack the Ripper
Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 70% Sativa / 30% Indica THC: 15% – 20%
The name of this “killer” strain says it all. In case anyone doesn’t know, Jack the Ripper was a 19th century murderer in London, the world’s first documented serial killer. Don’t expect anything nearly so violent, but be ready for a creeping cerebral high that’s ideal for creative daytime tasks. The high is decidedly upbeat, with a good dose of both energy and relaxation. This strain works best on depression and anxiety, though it’s also good for PTSD, migraines, and PMS. Jack the Ripper has a lemony citrus flavor and an earthy smell. The THC content averages less than 15%, though some breeders claim levels as high as 26%. While it’s not the world’s most powerful strain, it delivers effective medical relief to many people. The sativa/indica ratio of Jack the Ripper is 70:30, so the high is focused mostly on the head. Some patients experience dry mouth or red eyes, while paranoia is also possible.
Jack the Ripper is a mostly Sativa hybrid, named after the famous serial killer that terrorized London in 1888. This strain is often described as ‘exhilarating and racy’. It clouds users’ minds in a dense spacey fog, with many describing the strain as psychedelic (especially in higher doses).
The charge of energy, cerebral stimulation, and waves of euphoria lift users’ spirits. These cerebral effects are so strong, however, they often drown out the accompanying mild body-high so much so that users rarely recognize it.
This bud features a sweet lemon flavor. Its negative effects include the standard cotton mouth, dry eyes, and occasional dizziness. A few users may experience anxiety or paranoia, especially when using higher doses or baking the strain into edibles (brownies, cookies, etc.).
This is a good coverall medication. It is ideal for daytime use since the cerebral effects are stimulating rather than soporific. The strain can ease most chronic aches and pains and muscle spasms. Its cerebral effects can help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. Patients may also use this strain for migraines, nausea, glaucoma, inflammation, and anorexia.
Jack the Ripper was developed by TGA Subcool Seeds, who crossed the elusive Jack’s Cleaner with the famous strain Space Queen. This strain can be grown indoors or out but is unlikely to be successful in a Sea of Green. For best results, it should be topped and moved into the budding phase early due to stretching. Although it requires a little trim work, this strain is appropriate for new growers. Jack the Ripper will produce moderate yields, nearly always finishing flowering within eight weeks.
