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.
Taking years to develop, Pennywise is a mostly-Indica strain with a high CBD count created by TGA Subcool Seeds.
Looking at the strains parents, its no wonder this strain got named after a killer clown. The mother of Pennywise is Harlequin, a mix of 1970s Colombian Gold, Thailand, Switzerland and Nepal. Subcool’s Jack the Ripper is the father, a descendent of Jack’s Cleaner and Space Queen. This strain actually has a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD, which ranges between 12 and 15 percent. What that means is that for every 1 percent of THC (the psychoactive chemical in Cannabis) there is also 1 percent of CBD (the non-psychoactive chemical with far more healing capabilities).
A good strain for any time of the day this strain can help battle fatigue, regulate diabetes, relieve stress and calm anxiety. High CBD strains like Pennywise have shown potential in alleviating the effects of PTSD, arthritis, epilepsy and various neurological disorders. These kinds of strains have also been observed to have neuro-protective properties.
Pennywise can grow to medium height but it is still very suitable for indoors, though the strain has no issues with an outdoor garden. This strain has four different phenotypes, with differences between the four being mainly bud structure and color dominance. It should be topped at least once and has a flowering period lasting 60 to 67 days. Pennywise also has a high resistance to mildew.
