The history of Jack the Ripper strain started when TGA Subcool Seeds chose to cross the famous weed Space Queen with the amazing Jack’s Cleaner strain. In fact, the Space Queen version that was used to create the Jack the Ripper weed was a male version of it, also called the Space Dude.

Jack The Ripper marijuana was named after the London mysterious killer because it eliminates and kills any kind of stress and exhaustion in those who use it. The choice of a name might be a bit of dark, especially since smoking this pot or consuming this wax will give you quite a wave of positivity. Jack the Ripper weed strain won second place in 2017 at the Spannabis Cannabis Champions Cup, as well as deserves its spot on High Times Top Ten List in 2006.

Also known as JTR, this bud is a strain with Sativa/Indica features. The breeders managed to create some top-shelf seeds that provide tired people with an energy boost, fills them with happy feelings, all while keeping them concentrated and motivated enough to have their daily tasks done. The THC levels contained in this cannabis are great for novice users as they range from 17-19%, while CBD is less than 1%.


Containing such terpenes as Pinene, Carene, Linalool, Phellandrene, Camphene the strain gives users a delicious flavor profile. It has a strong citrus scent and taste, impacting your palate with a sweet lemon flavor. This flavor is combined with undertones of woody tastes such as pine. The smoke is smooth and velvety and rarely causes much coughing.

For best results, the strain needs to be moved and topped into the budding phase early to be able to stretch. It will also require some trim work, but it isn’t what we’d consider a tough growth.

I wouldnt call it the best but giving it a try wont kill you. The strain has good effects though you can feel slightly sleepy in the beginning, the euphoria comes slowly.
