Welcome to another strain review feature. This week Blackberry Kush is in our strain spotlight.
Blackberry Kush is an indica cross of Afghani X Blackberry cannabis strains, which come together to form this beautifully-coloured variety that cannot be mistaken.
This bud looks fantastic! The purple colouration is total – before grinding this up I couldn’t see any green, save for the stalk.
Did I mention how impressed I am with the colour? I just don’t see bud like this every day, it’s a real treat to look at! The vibrant pistils are a bright golden yellow.
The trim has been done well, and it has been cured for while. That along with the genetics has resulted in a well-formed and well-cured sample that I am excited to try!
This strain is known for its fruity-jet-fuel aroma. The scent of Blackberry Kush is strong, especially so once broken up or ground.
I get really, really fruity scents from this one, so much so that it makes me think of the Shoreline – my favourite smelling cannabis strain in the world!
Blackberry Kush is now my 2nd favourite cannabis strain smell.
Loading some of the Blackberry Kush into my Weed Star Wasabi bong, I’m ready for a nice big hit.
Wow, the intensity isn’t there at all! I’m able to consume this without coughing or getting any sense of discomfort from the smoke in my lungs, something which quite a few strains do come with due to acridity of the smoke in thicker proportions.
And the Blackberry Kush tastes great – the flavour come through the bong nicely – although not as much as some gassy strains I have sampled.
Great flavour, low intensity, top marks from me.
As the Blackberry Kush begins to kick in I feel the lovely indica relaxation setting in.
This strain doesn’t come with any intensity (that I detected from two bongs in quick succession) in its effects, instead making my body feel physically good.
I remember thinking if I was in pain, this would potentially alleviate that as my body feels lovely.
Overall I really like Blackberry Kush – so much so, that I had to film a second review!
If you’ve been watching the channel since the beginning, you may remember our old review of Blackberry Kush back in September 2016 – I had to revisit it with this sample as it was just too good to pass up!
10/10 would smoke again. At any time of the day! Blackberry Kush made our Top 5 Cannabis strains of 2016 – hopefully you can see why!
