Black Lime Strain Terpene and Aroma Chemistry

The aroma profile typical for the Black Lime weed strain combines earthy notes with pine hints to match. They are accompanied by distinct lime notes (hence the name.) Terpenes that are responsible for these scents are caryophyllene and pinene. Also, there is an aftertaste of herbal spices on the tongue. The smoke is smooth and refreshing.

Main Effects and Medicinal Properties

When people make the first puffs, they feel the smoke fill their heads with a sense of happiness and relaxation, mixing in a touch of creativity. The weed leaves them in positive spirits, which is good for those with mood disorders, including anxiety, stress, and depression. Waves of calm and uplifting euphoria come over smokers. Overall, it is a good choice for social occasions. Over time, people can notice tingling and numbing effects across their skin. Also, the cultivar makes them lazy and can induce munchies.

Black Lime has built up a reputation among medical marijuana users due to its purported health benefits in overcoming the symptoms of:

  • Insomnia
  • Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Migraine

During a smoking session with the Black Lime strain, there is a possibility of having unpleasant feelings. People may experience:

  • Drowsiness
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Hunger
  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth

Hints for Cultivators

Black Lime is easy to cultivate, assuming gardeners can find some seeds. They are difficult to track and buy, but cultivators can get clippings from mature plants to grow clones. The growth time is not fast – the plants take 60-70 days to flower and 75 days to produce yields. The bushes are of an average height (30-60 inches) and suitable for most growth locations. The minty buds are small or medium-sized. When growing the strain indoors, consider its pungent aroma and possible installation of smell-proof equipment. Inside, growers look at a return of around 0.5-1 oz./ft2; outdoors, they can expect 10-15 oz./plant.
