All About The Black Weed Strain


The Black is a potent classic Indica strain with THC levels ranging between 15% and 19% and a low CBD content (0.61-1.07%). Bred by Canada’s BC Bud Depot, the strain traces its origin back to Canada’s Vancouver Island with genetic lineage to the Afghani, Michoacán, Oaxaca, and Green Vietnamese strains. It was named after its unique growing characteristics since its leaves turn from dark purple to black during flowering. In 2008, this strain was named a Top 10 Strain of the Year by High Times magazine.
