Blackberry Kush cannabis oil is a strongly indica-dominant hybrid. The original genetics of the strain are the subject of dispute. The commonly accepted story is that the strain is a cross of Blackberry with either Afghani or Bubba Kush. However, some people believe it is a cross of DJ Short’s Blueberry and Afghani.
As for the identity of the breeder, no one is sure, which is hardly a surprise given the differing stories surrounding its genetics. Blackberry Kush was possibly created during the fledgling California medical marijuana era.
Blackberry Kush cannabis oil smell can fill up and room, and it is a real treat for the senses. You will adore the powerfully sweet scent which is akin to a bowl of fresh blackberries. It is a hard strain to resist once you have enjoyed a whiff of it.
You won’t be disappointed by the taste either. There is a strong earthy diesel flavor coupled with sweet blueberries. The best way to describe this strain is to say it tastes like a bowl of berries when you inhale. The earthy fuel flavor becomes more apparent on the exhale, and you also benefit from the gorgeous berry taste long after you toke because it lingers on the palate.
Blackberry Kush has the typical Indica Kush dense nugs covered with dark green leaves and a coating of purple. In some cases, the buds have dark purple calyxes which give the strain a blackberry-type appearance. The rust-colored pistils also stand out.
Blackberry Kush Strain Grow Info
Once you get your hands on Blackberry Kush seeds, we don’t recommend growing it outdoors. Although it is resistant to mold, it can be damaged by spider mites and fungus. If you elect to take your chances and grow this weed outside, it will reward you with a very generous yield of up to 28 ounces per plant. It is usually ready for harvest by the middle of October.
It is a much easier strain to grow indoors, however. Blackberry Kush usually takes 8-9 weeks to flower, and it can yield around 16 ounces per square meter planted. When feeding this strain, pay special attention to its magnesium intake, and make sure you give it plenty of nitrogen during the vegetative stage of growth.
While you are free to use a hydroponics setup, try to avoid using Coco Noir as your growing medium because it is more likely that a magnesium deficiency will take place. One of the most obvious signs of this deficiency is when you notice that the bottom of your plants is growing more slowly than usual. Another sign is if the leaves are turning yellow long before harvest and their tips looked burned.
Make sure the humidity in your grow room is no higher than 60% during the vegetative state. Reduce it gradually each week so by the time your flowers are blooming; the humidity level is down to 40%. If you allow the humidity to remain too high, your plants will take in fewer nutrients which leads to a variety of deficiencies.
