Strain of the Week: Jack the Ripper




It’s October, and it’s time for spooky stories, both fictional and truth. One of England’s most renowned serial killers, Jack the Ripper, takes the cake when it comes to English horror stories. Having targeting at least five English prostitutes in London, England in the late 19th century, this particular individual left fear and terror in his wake. Media coverage of the murders during that time didn’t help to calm the hysteria. So why would a cultivator named their strain after this renowned killer? The short answer is that we have no idea. The longer answer is that instead of inaccurately referring to this as “killer cannabis,” we’re just going to call it the ultimate medicine.

The identity of Jack the Ripper was never discovered, and the murders were never solved. However, Jack the Ripper as a strain is said to have stemmed from parents Jack’s Cleaner, a sativa-dominant strain, and a cross with Space Dude. Together these two strains created an energizing sativa, which is highly regarded for its properties.

Apparently, Jack the Ripper is difficult to grow. However, the results are worth the effort. The samples of this strain were beautifully cured, and revealed dark green nugs with tangled red hairs, all nestled underneath a multitude of trichomes covering its exterior. Upon consuming though, Jack the Ripper actually contained a sweetness when burned, followed by a pleasant, mellow flavor that makes you want to take another hit before passing it on to a friend.

Ultimately, this strain offers a lot to both medical and recreational consumers. Its ability to bring on euphoria and inspiring creativity are highly sought after, whether you’re looking to liven up your weekend or get pumped for something exciting. What’s most important to take away from this is that it’s a great strain that is reported by patients to not only assist with medical uses, but also to simply boost imagination.
