About Ace of Spades
Playing off the love many people have for the combination of sweet and sour tastes, TGA Subcool seeds crossed a female Black Cherry Soda with their Jack the Ripper strain to create Ace of Spades. Subcool believes Black Cherry Soda to be of Kush origin, but no one knows for sure just what the genetics include. Fortunately, the father’s genetics are well known. It is a cross of Jacks Cleaner and Space Queen, which makes Ace of Spades mostly Indica. However, the effects of this strain often start out like a Sativa, causing users to feel uplifted and even giddy. The more typical Indica effects set in later. This smorgasbord of effects makes it a good medication for a wide range of both body and mind ailments.
Ace of Spades can grow both indoors and out, forming a tall, bushing-out plant. For growing this plant indoors, it’s recommended to top it for height control. The strain does well in a Sea of Green setup. If using this method, plants should not be topped. Outside, the strain is ready for harvest in late September to early October. Inside, it needs eight to nine weeks to finish flowering. Ace of Spades will provide a large yield with up to 20% of THC.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 30% Indica / 70% Sativa
THC: 19% – 25%, CBD: 1%, CBN: 2%
The ace of spades may be the death card, but the marijuana strain that bears its name is anything but. Instead, it offers health and healing, especially for patients who suffer from depression, anxiety, multiple sclerosis and muscle spasms, chronic pain, insomnia, and stress. Ace of Spades is an indica-dominant hybrid with a sativa/indica ratio of 30:70. The high affects both body and mind, but this strain leans toward the physical. Expect a deep relaxed feeling in the muscles, strong euphoria, a burst of creativity, and a giggly, happy sensation. Ace of Spades is a cross of Black Cherry and Jack the Ripper, and it carries on their potent heritage, delivering THC levels that can exceed 25%. But CBD levels are low, much less than 1% in available tests, and that means this strain isn’t recommended to treat conditions that require CBD, such as epilepsy. The taste is sweet and sour, with notes of citrus and spice, while the aroma is a similar combination with added hints of loam. The buds are light green with large, bright red hairs and a healthy coating of crystals.
