Pennywise is a high-CBD indica cross between Harlequin and Jack the Ripper, a combination that lends this strain its killer clown name. Four phenotypes of this Stephen King-inspired strain exist, some of which have fingerlike buds while others appear more round. Notes of coffee and pepper lift from the purple-fringed flowers with undertones of lemon and bubblegum. Rich in the therapeutic compound CBD, Pennywise is especially effective in treating arthritis, PTSD, epilepsy, neurological disorders, and cancer symptoms. It contains a 1:1 ratio of CBD and THC, so the psychoactive effects are milder and more relaxing. Jack the Ripper’s cerebrally focused effects are detectable in Pennywise’s genes as euphoria and mental clarity take over with an invigorating buzz. Pennywise flowers in 60 to 67 days and is suitable for either indoor or outdoor gardens.
“Here we go. So this Pennywise was a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD (9% of each to be exact) so then. Very cautious about taking anything with THC in it, or high amounts for sure, so Pennywise seemed like a good alternative to some others out there. It was a very mellow feeling....no racing heart just calm. No heavy headed feeling either. What a bonus there. Definitely will use again.”
