Potency

Newbie Skilled

Rare Darkness is a reasonably potent cross between Rare Dankness #1 and Grape Ape. It is an 80/20 Indica-dominant hybrid. The heavy buzz and high potency make it difficult for beginners to take cannabis normally, so this enjoyment is left to experienced smokers. From its Grape Ape parent, marijuana received a strong smell of grapes and berries. That is all thanks to the pulegone terpene, which also adds a spicy herbal scent. The weed is characterized by a sweet aftertaste transferred from myrcene and phellandrene.

Appearance and Smell

Rare Darkness has dense green buds with a purple tint. These pieces have amber hairs and a coating of crystalline trichomes. Tokers report that buds emit a rather pungent odor when burned, which can cause coughing or tears. They also reported scents such as:

  • Flowery
  • Menthol
  • tropical
  • Chemical
  • Pear

Basic Info

The prominent cannabinoid in the Rare Darkness strain is THC. Typically, its averages are 16-20 percent. However, the Analytical 360 laboratory tested this marijuana and found that this figure can be as high as 26% of the content. CBD is only 1%. The high from weed captures the consumer almost immediately, along with pressing sensations in the temples. A tingling sensation in the body accompanies the user during practically the entire buzz — as well as a feeling of euphoria and brain activity. Marijuana pairs well with spending an evening with friends. But be sure - at the end of the evening, you will all be couch-locked. Profound fatigue will put you to sleep. Of course, the strain is suitable for use before bedtime. Be sure to stock up on food and drink ahead of time, though, as you may be hungry and thirsty, but you won't want to get off the couch. Weed abuse can cause:

  • Insomnia
  • Headache
  • Heightened sensory perception
  • Paranoia

The heavy high and high potency make the weed capable of combating stress and physical pain. It relaxes muscles and allows all worries to disappear for a while. A small dose of marijuana before bed can help ease insomnia. Feelings of happiness and euphoria can temporarily relieve the symptoms of depression.

Growing Tips

Weed breeders named their strain after their company had made the seeds available online. For outdoor cultivation, the plant requires a semi-humid, hot climate. The bushes are small, up to 60 inches tall. Experienced growers recommend exposing the plant to low temperatures during the late vegetative stage. Flowering time takes 6 to 8 weeks, and harvest time is nine weeks. Cannabis can produce large yields, up to 15-20 ounces per plant.
