Dark Night is a rare Indica strain, which appeared through a crossing between famous GDP and Purple Kush. Since the parent strains are Sativa-dominant, a theory exists that in this combination, Jack Herrer combines with a hybrid of Trainwreck and a strain of unknown origins. The first breeder to create this marijuana is the company Mother Chucker’s Seeds. On average, this cannabis strain has a THC content ranging between 17-24% and a CBD level of about 0.35-1.23%. Besides that, this kush contains approximately 0.14-0.54% of CBC, 0.06-0.84% of CBG, and also up to 0.17% of CBN. Due to a pretty high index of THC, it’s recommended to consume Dark Night mindfully, especially for novice users. Another advantage that highlights this cannabis strain from others is its delicious, fruity flavor and the terpene profile responsible for this:

Dark Night Strain Cannabinoids

THC 17 - 24% 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 0.35 - 1.23% 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 0.14 - 0.54% 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 0.06 - 0.84% 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 0.56 - 0.17% 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 0.24 - 0.7% 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.
