Blackberry Kush Information
This mostly indica strain is a mix of Afghani and Blackberry strains and has beautiful dark purple buds with orange hairs. Plants will flower at 7-8 weeks and are not particularly high yielders, but the dense, hard nugs have crystals throughout. Blackberry Kush tends to have a hashy, jet fuel smell and taste that is balanced by sweet berries. Blackberry Kush is often recommended for the treatment of pain thanks to its strong indica body effects.
For our reviewers who were experiencing a lot of stomach discomfort, it did wonders for relieving that, and everyone really enjoyed the numbing, relaxed body effects as well. It’s definitely a berry-scented strain, but that didn’t translate to the taste. Still, the pleasant smoking experience again made up for that shortcoming, making this a perfect selection for patients who need an Indica but don’t like the thick, at times cholorophyl-laden (since they generally have more leaf matter) smoke they deliver… “pleasant” was the word that kept coming to mind with this one.
Though the lineage would suggest a more dense structure than the result shows here, we liked the foxtailed and unpredictable structure. Light green and looking like the DJ Short’s Blueberry side of the family, it has brick red pistils and a high calyx-to-leaf ratio.
This sample reminded us both of a purple strain and Blueberry with its slightly musky but sweet berry aroma — we did indeed pick up a Blackberry element to the smell as well. It was more piney and musky pre-grind, but sweetened up quite a bit and got more pungent once handled.
Lightly sweet and spicy in the mouth, this strain didn’t have a ton of taste to it. The smoke was incredibly smooth and non-expansive though, making this a superb choice for those who don’t want to cough.
With only a little ear tickle and some face/head pressure to start, this one came on rather slowly and built into a uniquely relaxing body-centric experience within 45 minutes. With a lot of downward inertia serving to pull us into the couch, the warming and relaxing body effects came with very little mental effect other than a pleasant sense of relaxation (mental processes were clear). As time moved slowly forward, the numbing and tingly body effects kept up at a high level, especially in the hands and arms. One effect that we all noticed was strong relief of stomach issues and increase in appetite, which came on almost immediately. As it subsided, we were generally a little tired and this med would definitely pave the way for a restful night of sleep.
