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%.

Some patients experience dry mouth or red eyes, while paranoia is also possible.
