A Star is Born
There are few fruity strains on the market right now quite as celebrated or successful as Blackberry. A strain that lives up to her name in more ways than one, Blackberry has always been something of a bar-setter for comparable fragrant and flavorful strains. Meanwhile, Afghani weed has been doing its thing in one form or another for generations - parent to countless award-winning strains, and one of the most important ‘classic’ cannabis strains by a clear mile.
Suffice to say, combine the genetics of these two heavyweights and the resulting hybrid simply cannot fail. And so it proved, with the justifiably-hyped debut of Blackberry Kush some time ago.
Quickly becoming a modern day superstar in her own right, Blackberry Kush Feminized is renowned for both for tantalizing taste and relaxing effects. With approximately 80% Indica genetics in her composition and a THC content of around 20%, this ganja's got more than enough power and punch to incapacitate even the most seasoned stoners.
Combining all the most admirable traits of both parents and bringing something unique to the table, Blackberry Kush is as sweet and fruity as she is spicy and exotic. Coupled with the added bonus of a relatively simple cultivation process, this is an award-worthy hybrid with a guaranteed place in classic cannabis history books.
Perfect pot for when you're in the mood for a few hours of blissful relaxation, during which the cares of the world are replaced with a head full of positive thoughts, optimism and contentment.
Flavor and Fragrance of Blackberry Kush Feminized
There’s really nothing else out there right now with a fragrance for flavor quite like this. It’s a complex and initially challenging aroma, which combines the sweet and sour scents of fresh berries with an intoxicating hint of quality hash and a fuel-like undertone in the background. Somehow, it’s a fragrance that’s sweet, sour, spicy, exotic, fruity and floral - all at the same time.
As you’d expect, this frankly wild combination of fragrance notes translates to an equally complex flavor profile. The initial taste is one of sugar-sweet berries, which quickly gives way to a huge wave of sour fuel and a distinctly spicy back-note. The aftertaste is dominated by wet earth and lashings of quality hashish, for a lingering exotic flavor that sticks around for some time.
You can pick up on some of the subtler nuances of this strain by vaping, though the earthy and spicy tones are accentuated most prominently when burned.
With a predominantly Indica composition (around 80%), Blackberry Kush wastes no time getting to work with a deep and hard-hitting body stone. There’s an initial cerebral uplift which is every bit as powerful as you’d expect from a 20% THC strain.
Not to such an extent as to be disorientating or overpowering, but enough to have you spinning into a world of carefree thoughts and pure positivity.
Give things just a few minutes and a tsunami of heaviness rapidly begins making its way from the neck down. Unless you’re extremely modest with your consumption, you’re almost guaranteed to find yourself curling up on the nearest piece of furniture and refusing to move for hours. All the while feeling as if you’ve been wrapped in the most comfortable physical and psychological ‘blanket’ of sorts, protecting you from anything that isn’t unashamedly indulgent.
Blackberry Kush isn’t the most social of strains and is best avoided when there’s anything physical to be taken care of. But when it comes to pure enjoyment at the end of a busy day, this herb's in a league of her own.
Medical Uses of Blackberry Kush Feminized
It didn’t take long for Blackberry Kush Feminized to become a staple in therapeutic cannabis circles across her native California. Highly rated and recommended by dispensary owners in both the United States and Canada, this herb has the power and punch to deal with a wide variety of psychological and physiological complaints.
Despite being a predominantly Indica strain, Blackberry Kush has an uplifting and mood-boosting effect that can be great for alleviating mild to moderate cases of depression, anxiety and everyday stress. A great strain for quickly snapping you out of a bad mood and having you focus on everything that’s good in the world, despite what may be on your mind at the time.
On the physical side of things, this hard-hitting Indica makes light work of all types of acute and chronic pain conditions. A perfect example of an organic alternative to conventional OTC painkillers, Blackberry Kush physically relaxes every square inch of the body from head-to-toe from the inside out.
Migraines, muscle spasms, mild to moderate joint pains - no match for just a couple of tokes of this stuff.
When consuming Indica-dominant strains like this, it’s usually only a matter of time until you drift off into a good night’s sleep - which makes Blackberry Kush a solid choice for dealing with insomnia and other sleep disorders, or those times where you’re simply feeling too wound up, anxious and nervous to shut down at the end of the day.
Negative side effects are rare, though any strain with a 20% THC content should be approached with caution by anyone with a low THC tolerance.
Growing Blackberry Kush Feminized Seeds
Aside from her potency, fabulous fragrance and wide-reaching therapeutic applications, Blackberry Kush Feminized is also an absolute breeze to grow.
