Black Garlic is a Sativa strain that originates from a cross between GMO Cookies (aka Garlic Cookies) and Sour Dubb. The responsibility for creating and breeding this kush lies on Oni Seed Co. On average, it contains the THC level that ranges between 7.5-9% and the CBD amount of about 0,325-0.75%. Besides that, there also present approximately 0.39-0.69% CBC, 0.13-0.93% CBG and 0.26% CBN. Though the THC content may look pretty small, it’s still better to be careful with the dosage because this resinous strain can put a consumer to peaceful sleep with ease. The complex terpene profile that stands behind its unusual appearance and flavors consists of:

Black Garlic Flavors

Black Garlic’s flavor profile appears to be an odd mix of mint, tar, peper, menthol, and some even feel a slight ammonia note. The terpene responsible for both the most prevailing minty and the least noticeable ammonia flavors is pulegone. In turn, nerolidol provides the aroma of tar, while phellandrene gives off pepperiness. At the same time, the presence of menthol is the result of the combined powers of both phellandrene and limonene.

Common Effects

This marijuana sticks to its Indica lineage and represents a perfect choice to unwind, relaxing after a hard-working day. The high starts from mellow relaxation and tingles, flowing into the state of quite a clear-headed yet lazy relaxation. Despite it doesn’t make one completely powerless, and it’s possible to perform some activities, Black Garlic is definitely a nighttime strain. Along with the concentration, it can also make the consumer more talkative and sometimes even giggly. 

Depending on the dosage and user’s tolerance, this weed can either induce heavy sleepiness or only make the consumer slightly sedative. However, regardless of the consumed amount, the Black Garlic weed strain is known to cause munchies, so it’s better to prepare some snacks in advance.

Unlike most people sativa hybrids are the top of my stoner list.

Of all the strains in the market, i try to find some that are similar to Black Gralic as possible. i am drawn to calmness and healing. i even reccommend this to others like me. All you'd have to do is get or Fortune Cookies, or any other with similar qualities.

some medical journals said that Black Garlic is great for pain and relief. That is actually true, I started using it last fall and i don't feel my knee pain as much as i used to. I had been involved in an accident that led to surgery and PT training. a few puffs of the joints have been very helpful.

10/10 appearance, 8/10 flavor cause it smells too cheesy to me

A premium bud that throws an amazing mellow buzz. Beginner smokers can expect great sleep, but experienced… theyll get just sedation I think.

My new favorite strain. Just several hits and my muscle pain melts away. This one can certainly be used for medicinal purposes like insomnia, stress, anxiety, and migraines. I always have some indicas at hand to cope with similar stuff.

Due to its Indica heritage, Black Garlic is a strain for people who want to unwind in the end of the working day and restore their energy resources. I cant smell garlic, but its more gasoline with pepper and mint undertones. Oh God, it puts me straight
