Definition - What does Blackberry Kush mean?
Blackberry Kush is an indica strain of cannabis that provides a body-focused high. It is used by patients suffering from a wide range of afflictions, from chronic pain to insomnia. This particular strain contains 20% THC, and even in moderate amounts can cause sleepiness.
Blackberry Kush got its name from several factors. One of those is the fact that the buds grow small red hairs all over. Another is that it actually does have somewhat of a hint of berry flavor, although the Kush aspect comes across very well in the smooth-sweet aroma.
Hydrolife explains Blackberry Kush
There are many different strains of cannabis bred and grown today. Blackberry Kush is one of the best known, and that is for many different reasons. This is primarily an indica strain, which means that the “high” it creates is more physical than mental. The strain was bred from Blackberry and Afghani strains.
It is also relatively high in THC, coming in at 20% (with 2% CBD). So, a little bit goes a long way. Moderate amounts are taken by those struggling with insomnia for an almost guaranteed deep sleep.
In addition to chronic pain and insomnia, Blackberry Kush is often used to combat a range of other conditions. For instance, chronic stress and anxiety can be helped with this particular strain, as can mood disorders (thanks to the CBD content). Note that in addition to natural buds, shatter, oil, and tinctures made with Blackberry Kush are also highly effective, unlike some other medical marijuana strains.
In terms of growing potential, Blackberry Kush is relatively easy to cultivate, particularly in an indoor growing setup. However, it can also be grown outdoors, although it tends to prefer a warmer environment, and may fail if you grow it in areas where cooler temperatures prevail.
