The Black is an almost pure Indica 90/10 hybrid strain, which can boast a unique appearance and beneficial effects. Moreover, this kush took one of the places among the top 10 strains of 2008 by the High Times. This cannabis received the name because of its leaves that tend to become dark purple or sometimes even completely black. It’s hard to state something exact regarding Black strain’s origins, but it’s possible to tell that it has been in Vancouver Island and California since the late 1980s. Though the lineage is also unknown, people claim BC Bud Depot to be the original breeders of this strain.

This kush should be an over the counter medical drug. I mean it! it treats pain unlike any painkiller available. great part is there are no major side effects.

All About Black Strain

It contains an average level of THC that ranges between 15-17% and a negligible CBD amount of about 0,66-1,3%. Even if it’s not very potent, the consumer should be mindful of the dosage because overconsumption may induce some unpleasant effects. Like all decent Indicas, the best time to enjoy Black weed strain is during the nighttime.

The Black Strain’s Flavor Profile

This weed’s flavors show a noticeable chemical presence with notes of pine, tea, and violet. Also, some consumers state that the taste is reminiscent of grapes. It contains the following terpenes:

  • Phellandrene
  • Pulegone
  • Carene

Reported Effects

After the consumption, the high won’t take long to come, providing a relaxing body high that quickly soothes various pains. Simultaneously, a cerebral influence lifts the mood and throws one to a state of serenity without any aches or unpleasant thoughts. Then, it all ends with a feeling of drowsiness, which departs the person asleep soon enough.

Fortunately, if Black is consumed in proper amounts, the side effects are pretty mild. They are:

  • Cottonmouth
  • Hunger
  • Paranoia (in case of overconsumption)

Common Usage

According to users, Black has noticeable pain-relieving properties, and it can also help deal with insomnia. Of course, with its relaxing Indica genetics, it may become a reasonable option for alleviating stress.

Cant imagine a better strain for body numbing effects. It is moderate so you do not feel lole you are going to die right there and then. That is my personal view, the potency rate is just right not too much and not too little. I wish they all came like this.

THC 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. 15.5 - 17.5%
CBD 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. 0.66 - 1.3%
CBC 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. 0.42 - 1.44%
CBG 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. 0.36 - 2.33%
CBN 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. 0.57 - 0.15%
THCV 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. 0.33 - 1.07%
