About this Hybrid Strain

The stunning indica cannabis strain Blackberry Kush is known for its lovely dark violet buds laced with deep greens, yellows, and sometimes black hues wrapped with orange hairs. It exudes an earthy, sweet berry fragrance with a similar taste. Some crops have been reviewed to produce a fuel-like undertone.

There have been disputes reflecting the lineage of Blackberry Kush. Some say it’s simply the daughter of the indica Afghani and hybrid Blackberry, while others believe it’s a cross between Afghani and DJ Short Blueberry. Still, others have noted it could have a parent of an Afghani/Blackberry hybrid crossed with Bubba Kush.

The THC content levels at 13%, but potent crops have borne up to 20%. Its high is known to be extremely relaxing, decreasing bodily pain and aches in the consumer as well as inducing a euphoric feeling. Munchies are also a side-effect of this strain. Nighttime use is recommended since it can cause sleepiness, and reviewers have endorsed it for helping with insomnia.

While some have reported Blackberry Kush as increasing creativity as a positive side-effect, others note that it can make you dizzy as a negative side-effect if too much is consumed.

Blackberry Kush is suggested for novice growers since it produces high yields and is easy to grow, naturally being resistant to mildew and mold. However, take caution in regards to spider mites and botrytis.
