Blackberry Kush is an Indica dominant hybrid of Afghani and Blackberry marijuana strains. It's known to deliver an intense and long lasting effect that is true to the strain's Indica roots. Pain relief and appetite stimulation are common when medicating with Blackberry Kush as is a sedative effect that is not recommended for high-functioning activities. That said, Blackberry Kush does feature some Sativa traits, which provide more mental clarity than many other Indica strains with comparable strengths.
Blackberry Kush is exotic in taste and appearance
Blackberry Kush is also known for its exotic taste, layering subtle dark berry flavors beneath overtones of earth, green herbs and Himalayan spice, which can be quite reminiscent of the hashy flavors of the high mountain passes in Afghanistan from which the strain was derived. Blackberry Kush flowers have an equally exotic look with dense purple and dark green buds peppered with burnt orange hairs. Blackberry Kush growers will often lower the overnight temperature in their gardens in the final weeks of flowering to really bring out the dark purple hues in the plant.
Blackberry Kush is challenging to grow but pays off in potency
Blackberry Kush is difficult to grow and requires regular maintenance - especially in strenuous conditions. Growing just 2-3 feet and thriving in soilless grow mediums, Blackberry Kush is an ideal fit for indoor gardens that can be closely monitored.
The strain produces small but dense buds that are caked with resin, which can become so thick it will mask the underlying colors of the flower. Blackberry Kush plant yields are moderate, but most agree the strength and exceptional flavors make up for the strain's cultivation challenges and smaller harvests.
