Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica – 30% Sativa
Black Diamond Marijuana Strain
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.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
Black Diamond can also make even experienced cannabis users giddy — extended fits of giggling are not uncommon. Throughout all this stimulation, a strong body stone persists, making smokers unlikely to engage in active pursuits like exercise or even house cleaning. That said, because of its ability to affect both body and mind, Black Diamond can serve as an effective aphrodisiac. Because it is more sedative than energetic, Black Diamond is perhaps best enjoyed in the evening or just before bed when its slow burn of relaxation can be fully appreciated.
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.
No breeders have made seeds of Black Diamond available for commercial sale. Instead, prospective growers must obtain clippings from mature plants of the strain in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” It can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation requires a humid climate with daytime temperatures in the 70 to 80 degree Fahrenheit range. Plants grow short and bushy and should be “topped,” or trimmed of any wide fan leaves in order to encourage the growth of flowering nodes on lower branches. Those looking to bring out Black Diamond’s striking purple hues should also expose their plants to cold (but not freezing) temperatures just before flowering begins.
With its social, easygoing character, Black Diamond can be an excellent way to enhance your apres-ski experience (or to get it started early while the rest of your friends hit the slopes). As enjoyable in group settings, it can also set the ideal mood for some quality solo time.
