Ace of Spades

Ace of Spades is a product of TGA Subcool seeds with a sweet and sour flavor profile. This strain (cultivar) was created by crossing Jack the Ripper and Black Cherry Soda, which gives rise to its unique aroma and effects. Ace of Spades may help manage insomnia, anxiety, and chronic pain.

Ace of Spades may be named after a card renowned for its bad luck, but this strain will leave you feeling anything but unlucky. It is a hybrid strain that is heavily indica-leaning with a sativa-to-indica ratio of 30:70. Its high is relatively well-spread over the body and the mind, which is gained from its parent strains. Ace of Spades has some top-rated children, including the Jack of Spades and CBG Blend strains.

The Ace of Spades strain has a spot in the high THC club, with THC levels testing at around 19% and some varieties reporting even higher, up to 25%, with CBD around 1%.

Anxiety, Panic Disorders

Cannabis contains many anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) compounds that can beat stress and reduce the production of the stress hormone cortisol.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

THC may help reduce the number of spasms and help reduce pain due to its analgesic effects.

CBD may help relieve some of the psychoactive effects of THC when present in equal ratios and thus help reduce some of the more confusing and fatiguing effects of THC.

CBD and THC can also work alongside each other and increase the anti-inflammatory properties via the entourage effect. THC’s and CBN‘s sedative effects may also help treat sleep issues like insomnia, while CBD can help lift mood and relieve anxiety.
