Although TGA Subcool Seeds has halted seed production of the sweet and sour favorite, Ace of Spades, dedicated fans should still be able to find some with a little effort. To create this indica-dominant hybrid, TGA crossed their Black Cherry Soda mother (which they believe to be Kush genetics) with a Jack the Ripper father. The result was a plant that exploded with colors ranging from blue to purple to pink, along with irresistible lemony citrus and sweet berry flavors. The effects of the Ace of Spades begin quickly with a burst of uplifting and motivating energy that you should be sure to take advantage of before the next stage sets in. At that point, hopefully you have finished what you were doing and are ready to enjoy the transition into full body relaxation.

For the slightly more experienced grower in the group, this strain flourishes when grown in a sea of green environment – obviously, if the sea of green technique is utilized no topping, trimming, or fimming would be necessary.
