Black Diamond Weed
Black Diamond Weed has a rich berry aroma passed on from parent strain Blackberry. On closer inspection, these is also an underlying dank and earthy character. Meanwhile, breaking up or grinding the buds gives off a nutty, toasted odor. When burnt, Black Diamond gives off a surprisingly smooth smoke for an indica; on the exhale, this smoke leaves behind the taste of oak and berries. Notably, Black Diamond has no detectable grape flavor — this is because the pigments that bring out the leaves’ purple hues do not have a corresponding effect on its taste.
Black Diamond is a hybrid with mostly indica genetics. It is a cross between flavor-engineered Blackberry and Diamond OG, a hybrid derived from OG Kush. This strain delivers a strong, sedative high that still allows for mental lucidity, making it great for concentration and conversation. Aside from its psychoactive potency, Black Diamond also has definite bag appeal, with multicolored flowers and a dynamic, robust aroma. This indica’s THC index has been measured at between 15% and 24%.
Black Diamond’s high sets in relatively quickly with a weightiness in the core and limbs, leading smokers to seek refuge in the closest comfortable surroundings. Consumers may find themselves more relaxed and able to breathe more deeply and easily. There are also some subtle mental effects that can lead to amplified sounds as well as visual distortions. Such trippy vibes can be great for watching TV or listening to some immersive, atmospheric music.
Black Diamond also has several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its strong, almost narcotic feeling of sedation can potentially numb aches and pains, whether temporary as due to injury or chronic as due to diseases like arthritis or lupus. Its mellow euphoria may also take the edge off of mild to moderate cases of stress, anxiety, and depression. Finally, Black Diamond may help ease insomnia, pulling users into a deep and restful sleep. Because the frantic feeling of “mind race” is not often reported with this strain, it can be a good choice for those who are prone to panic or paranoia.
