Jack the Ripper is a tangy, tropical cross between Jack's Cleaner and Space Queen. The name may be a little frightening, but this sativa hybrid is all uplift, energy, and happiness. Bred by TGA Subcool Seeds, Jack The Ripper is an ideal daytime strain.

This strain is known for it's stimulating and creative high. Perfect for artistic types or anyone who needs an energy boost before a big project, a few puffs of Jack The Ripper is like sipping on a fine espresso.
