The Black Diamond strain, also known as “Black Diamond OG” and more rarely called “Black Diamond OG Kush,” is the medical marijuana that was bred in the Northern California region as a clone-only strain. Being an Indica-dominant weed, this strain is a result of crossing Blackberry and Diamond OG strains and is hard to find. Due to its genetic backbone and medical properties, this cannabis boasts rich terpene composition dominated by myrcene and camphene. They give the Black Diamond its well-known earthy taste with rich sweet undertones with berry hints and a woody aroma. The effects are potent, starting with a euphoric high that lifts the mind and leaves stoners fully relaxed and happy. Since this strain has a moderate THC level that amounts to 16-19%, it can be smoked by experienced medical patients.

There are many other cannabinoids in this weed which include the following:

  • CBD 0.36-0.49%
  • CBC 0.3-0.64%
  • CBG 0.16-1.23%
  • CBN 0.22-0.2%
  • THCV 0.27-1.1%

Fragrances & Tastes

Due to its sweet and earthy OG kush heritage and high level of myrcene, the Black Diamond weed strain possesses a delicious taste that reminds stoners of a sweet cocktail of berries with earthy hints. Woody and the earthy fragrance come from the second dominant terpene, known as camphene. When these flavors are combined, the distinctive scent pleases the smoker's taste buds instantly and releases the whole range of complementary terpenes, providing a citrus aftertaste for a refreshing experience due to limonene in the terpene profile.

Other terpenes are:

  • Pinene (0.07%)
  • Ocimene (0.02%)
  • Geraniol (0.03%)
  • Humulene (0.03%)
  • Linalool (0.11%)

So light and enjoyable! Black Diamond weed is just like askgrowers says. It’s potent, but it brings on such good feelings. I’m high, but I don’t lose my time or my mind. I’m right here when I smoke it, can do everything but don’t feel any worry or concern. It makes me hungry – a lot – so I snack a bit. If I use it too much I’ll get fat. Hahahaa

This pot was recommended to me, no prescribed, by my doctor. I’m depressed and a bit anorexic because I don’t eat anything. It helped, this pot, but not so much. It was more bad for me than good. I panicked more when I took it, so it didn’t help my depression. Soon after this, my doctor changed the prescription.

The Black Diamond has particular characteristics that set it apart from other strains. The aroma can trick even some of the most avid smokers into thinking it is something else. The initial scent that it gives off is much like berries, since it has a blackberry parent and is followed by a powerful earthy tone. It has layers of aromas and the experienced users can take them apart into different categories. There is a sweet component to the smell, similar to brown sugar that is similar to the flavor of mahogany without having a woody component. The aroma is bright and straightforward, often being associated with Cuban cigars.
The clipping of Black Diamond is not easy to find. You can start growing it inside or outside. When growing it inside, you can easily create a controlled environment. Using the AC at a temperature lower than 46 degrees F for a while during the night is one way to ensure its development. If your area gets cold during the night, you can also manage to grow it outside. To make sure the plant has enough sunlight to grow buds. Make sure you prune it regularly.
