Black Dragon is a rather rare hybrid strain with the Indica/Sativa ratio of around 50/50%. Although there is not much information about this cannabis, it appeared as the result of work from Spanish breeders at La Semilla Automatica. They created Black Dragon through a crossing between Black Domina and Dutch Dragon, which explains the origins of its name. Regarding its primary cannabinoids, the flower carries around 12-14% THC and a minor amount of CBD ranging between 0.24-0.48%. At the same time, it also contains nearly 0.28-0.31% CBC, 0.05-0.18% CBG, 0.06-0.15% CBN, and 0.17-0.33% THCV. In view of a comparatively low THC index and fresh flavors, this weed can become an option for novice tokers if they consume it in mindful amounts. Regarding the terpenes responsible for the mentioned above fresh flavors, they are:

  • Limonene
  • Myrcene
  • Linalool
  • Terpinolene
  • Carene
  • Humulene
  • Valencene

Black Dragon Flavor Palette

The breeder states that Black Dragon is an efficient producer of big and resinous flowers, which is very good as it is. However, when adding an intense, fresh citrus odor, the bud becomes a lot more appealing. On top of that, its appearance of dark green buds with shiny white-orange trichomes also helps in maintaining its image. Naturally, the connoisseurs notice its fresh and citrusy taste, befitting a decent Sativa.
