The northern Californian ‘Black Diamond’ cannabis strain is a cross between Blackberry and Diamond OG. Diamond OG itself is a hybrid strain from the OG Kush. The flowers are known to be glittery looking and bright purple. The smell of this strain is musky and has an earthy tinge to it. Black Diamond is known to induce giggles and laughs and can also stimulate your appetite and cause cravings. The THC concentration is measured to be between 15 to 23%.
Black Diamond has several medial applications and is best known to induce a sedative state and maybe helping remove aches and pain. It can also be used to treat insomnia as it is known to help relax and sleep. It is generally known to be good with stress, anxiety, and depression. Apart from its psychoactive potency, Black Diamond is also appealing with multi-color flowers and a robust aroma. This strain is also helpful for those who may feel panic or paranoia.
This is a balanced hybrid but slightly leaning towards Indica. Though this has a peculiar grape smell, the taste is nowhere similar to it. Negative side effects may be dryness in mouth and dizziness.
