Final Comments: This is an excellent night time strain that is great for relaxing on the couch. From a medical patient’s perspective, Ruby is excellent sleeping medicine. A few bowls of this before bed has me drifting off to sleep very fast, and keeps me asleep. Ruby is also a perfect choice for pain relief, as long as I don’t have to go anywhere. She is couch lock inducing… Lastly, I find myself reaching for Ruby to help deal with anxiety. She will induce a great sense of euphoria very quickly, and a sense of well being that finishes off with total relaxation. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with this strain. She was very easy to grow, and produced a great harvest of pure medicine.
