This 100% Indica strain is a cross between Blackberry Kush and Emerald Headband that has taken the best Indica characteristics of its parents. It has THC levels measured at between 22% and 25%, which makes it a potent plant suitable for experienced smokers. The CBD level is low and ranges between 0.17% and 0.72%.

The cannabis was named after its dark appearance – it features dark green rock buds.

Aroma and Taste

The flavor profile is very complex. The buds emanate grapefruit and fruity aromas characteristic of the bisabolol and ocimene terpenes. These flavors are accented by scents of sweetened earth and pine typical for phellandrene, sabinene, and terpinolene.

Black Dog Effects and Medical Appointments

The high provided by the Black Dog strain is as great as its smell. It is long-lasting and gives a thorough body stone. The effects creep up slowly and may require some time before they become apparent. They begin with feelings of pressure around the forehead and mild tingling sensations throughout the body. 

Consumers may feel happy, creative, as well as become talkative. Then, smokers notice changes in their sensory perception and cognition offered by the weed. They become calm and concentrated. The body relaxation turns into sedation and may end in a peaceful sleep.

Black Dog Strain Cannabinoids

THC 22 - 25% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.17 - 0.72% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.47 - 1.29% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.29 - 1.55% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.05 - 0.2% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.49 - 1.4% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

Black Dog Terpene Profile

Ocimene 0.26% Ocimene (derived from the Ancient Greek word Ocimum meaning basil) is a terpene with sweet and herbaceous flavors, also boasting citrusy and woody undertones. Naturally, ocimene occurs in mint, parsley, orchids, hops, kumquats, mangoes, basil, bergamot, lavender, and pepper. Offers antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties.
Sabinene 0.21% Sabinene is a terpene with a peppery, spicy, citrusy, and piney aroma, presented in Norway spruce, Holm oak trees, black pepper, cardamom, and carrot seeds. Found in cannabis in small quantities. Allegedly, sabinene has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
Bisabolol 0.12% Bisabolol (also known as α-Bisabolol or levomenol) is a lesser-known terpene found in cannabis. It contributes to anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, antioxidant, anti-microbial, and analgesic properties of weed strains containing bisanol. Attentive smokers would be able to catch a nutty, fruity scent with herbal and floral undertones, with a tender trace of coconut.
Terpinolene 0.21% Terpinolene is one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis; however, It's usually presented in small quantities. Is responsible for piney, floral, herbaceous, and even a little bit citrusy aroma of cannabis. Terpinolene can be found in lilacs, nutmeg, and cumin. In cannabis, terpinolene contributes to the sensation of "freshness." Has the potential to reduce the risk of heart diseases.
Phellandrene 0.21% Phellandrene (also known as alpha- and beta-phellandrene) is one of the rare terpenes found in cannabis with antihyperalgesic and antidepressive properties. Phellandrene contributes to a minty, woody, and mildly citrus aroma in cannabis. Previously confused with limonene and pinene, phellandrene was eventually distinguished as a separate terpene common for eucalyptus. Also, it could be found in mint, dill, black pepper, cinnamon, parsley, pine, and lavender.
Total terpenes content 1.01%

Has a sweet fruity flavor that makes this strain one of my best choice. It also has a dope high that numbs the body relieving you of all pains. Migraines and muscle spasms don’t stand a chance with this strain. I simply love it!

Write your reply

the first time I used this Kush I couldn’t stop talking! Made me so excited and happy, it was a great experience. It kicks off slowly and can be easy to overdose. It’s a great strain for uplifting spirits. I read its reviews on allbud, leafly and askgrowers - and I must say that they are 100% correct on the effects. Highly recommend it.
