Jack the Ripper aka JTR is a Sativa dominant hybrid that’s a cross of Jack’s Cleaner and Space Queen. This award-winning variety was created by TGA Subcool and developed over a period of 11 years. JTR is a THCV-rich strain that was heavily used as a male in a lot of TGA’s hybrid lines.
TASTE & SMELL –
Jack the Ripper buds deliver a sour lemony aroma with slight earthy notes. Once blazed, smokers can expect a delicious blend of lemony hash flavors with piney undertones and hints of mango on exhale. There is little variation in the phenotypes but some phenos do lean more towards a stronger pine flavor.
The effects of this strain are hard-hitting and long-lasting, causing an uplifting and energizing high that’s great for daytime use. The cerebral effects produced can be quite racy and depending on tolerance, JTR can easily become edgy and paranoia-inducing, with some describing this strain as mildly psychedelic. However, when enjoyed in the right way Jack the Ripper can leave users feeling motivated and productive.
MEDICAL USES –
Medically, Jack the Ripper can help stimulate metabolism and aid in increasing appetite in patients suffering from eating disorders, often producing a heavy case of the munchies with just a few tokes. Furthermore, according to the man Subcool himself, this strain is said to benefit men struggling with premature ejaculation.
GROW INFO –
Jack the Ripper is considered an easy plant to grow and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation. The plants grow tall with a long stretch, producing sticky, resinous buds that are fairly dense and tend to fatten up substantially during later stages of flowering. Jack the Ripper displays vigorous growth and is quite fast-flowering for a Sativa, taking only eight to ten weeks. When grown outdoors, this strain has the potential to yield up to 13 ounces per plant and is ready for harvest in late September when grown in the Northern Hemisphere. Jack The Ripper’s breeder Subcool has noted that this strain benefits from being topped and then flipped to the flowering cycle several days later. This will slightly stunt the growth and counteract the strains stretch, making her more manageable and an overall higher-yielding plant.
