What happens when you blend a diesel-smelling classic indica with a fruity, sweet sativa? You get a great strain to treat couchlock, stress, and other chronic conditions. 

Blackberry Kush, also known as “Blackberry OG,” is an indica-dominant hybrid that comes from a strong lineage of popular strains. Afghani is one of the oldest and most popular indicas in the world. Blackberry, on the other hand, is a sativa is a strong and fruity scent. The combination of the two strains together provides a nice balance of diesel aromas with a sweet taste. We love Blackberry Kush for cannabis teas or to accompany a balanced breakfast. 

Smokers new to indicas and old pros alike will enjoy this delicious and calming strain. New growers like Blackberry Kush for its ability to produce dense nugs indoors. Pop a few grams of this strain into your next order and enjoy some sweet relief and sweet flavours. 

What Does Blackberry Kush Look Like? 

Blackberry Kush is impressive from the moment you open the package. These nuggets are dense. The purple trichomes are packed tight to create a dark and beautiful bud. You’ll notice orange hairs popping out of the bud, too. 

Effects of Blackberry Kush 

Blackberry is a sativa, but the effects of Blackberry Kush are all indica. Users may experience a pleasant head high at the beginning of their journey with Blackberry OG, but it doesn’t last long. Before you know it, your giggles will turn into yawns. The couchlock won’t hit you like a train, but we do suggest getting yourself ready for a nap sooner than later. 

Do you have anxiety? Blackberry Kush will take that all away. One of the top reasons customers choose Blackberry Kush is to treat different types of anxiety. All your worries float away and you’re just left with good feelings.

Users also report getting a nice case of the munchies after smoking some Blackberry Kush. Might we suggest some cheese and crackers to go with the strain’s sweet and fruity flavours? 

Effects of Blackberry Kush 

Negative Side Effects of Blackberry Kush

Blackberry Kush doesn’t produce any unique negative side effects. After taking one too many puffs, users may experience:

  • Dry mouth or dry eyes
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness 

Take things easy at first. Blackberry Kush can be pretty potent, so a couple of puffs may be all you need to enjoy a nice high.

Medical Uses of Blackberry Kush 

How strong is Blackberry Kush? Most buds hover around 20-24% THC. This soothing indica also tends to have up to 2% CBD, which is more than most recreational strains that you can find on the market. Blackberry OG’s couchlock and euphoric effects, tied with a higher CBD content, make it a great strain to treat a wide range of chronic conditions, including:

  • Anxiety or depression
  • Migraines
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic pain

If you’re experiencing higher levels of stress than usual, this is a great strain to take your mind off things. You’ll be having good dreams in no time. 

Smell and Taste of Blackberry Kush

It’s no surprise that Blackberry Kush has a fruity flavour and aroma. If you like blackberry jam, opening up a package of Blackberry Kush will be a delight. But this strain isn’t only a sweet treat. After all, it is an OG. When you first open the package, you might get hit with the scent of diesel and fuel. But the taste is all fruit. One of the most common reviews we hear from users is that you can really taste the blackberries!

This isn’t a great wake-and-bake strain because it will put you back to sleep. But if you’ve got a hangover, this will give you some sweet relief. Wake up, have a delicious breakfast, and put some decarbed Blackberry Kush in your tea. Go back to bed and enjoy sweet dreams until the hangover subsides!

(Anyone else want to stock up on Blackberry Kush for a New Year’s toke?)

Alternatives to Blackberry Kush 

It’s common to find Blackberry Kush in your local dispensary. Users can also easily get their hands on this popular strain through a trusted online dispensary. But if you can’t get your hands on Blackberry Kush (or just want to try something similar,) give these strains a try. 

Northern Lights is arguably the most popular indica out there. It’s another child of Afghani, but you don’t have much of a diesel smell. Pungent pine and woody scents are more likely to linger around this strain. Like Blackberry Kush, users report a nice mix of couchlock and euphoria. If you haven’t tried this strain yet, order it and see what all the hype is about.

Platinum Blackberry is a mix of Blackberry Kush and Platinum OG. The scents are more peppery than diesel-y, but the effects are similar. One user says, “Amazing flavour, smooth smoke, dense, beautiful buds, good for zoning out then a really good sleep. Highly recommended.” 

Black Roses has the diesel flavours of Blackberry Kush but has a more citrus taste. The high THC content and pungent aromas make it a top-shelf indica. This is another great strain to put in your tea at the end of a long, hard day.  

Testimonials From Customers About Blackberry Kush

Our customers love Blackberry Kush! Here’s what they had to say: 

“Wow!! This is some of the nicest weed I’ve gotten from SG. The nugz are dense and covered in trichomes. You can really taste those blackberries and I thought the platinum blackberry was good. This strain puts it to shame.”

“Stellar. Very tasty yet VERY smooth vaped. Spent the day with this new purchase and was impressed. Accomplished lots with a feeling of lighthearted contentment shadowing my every move.”

“The high is what really impressed me though, really chill, zero anxiety, soothing on the muscles and very little couch lock. Nice fruity indica where your able to get stuff done during the day.”

    I love all types of kush but never been a big blackberry fan. I did have some pretty awesome Platinum Blackberry from Sped Greens last year though.
