Black Diamond is a hybrid with mostly Indica genetics. It is a cross between flavor-engineered Blackberry and Diamond OG.
This is a hybrid derived from OG Kush. This strain delivers a strong, sedative high that still allows for mental lucidity, making it great for concentration and conversation. Aside from its psychoactive potency, Black Diamond also has definite bag appeal, with multicolored flowers and a dynamic, robust aroma. This Indica’s THC index has been measured at between 15% and 24%.
Black Diamond sets itself apart with medium to large flowers that have an elongated, almost cylindrical shape.
The buds have the dense, solid structure characteristic of other Indica varieties. Leaves are pale sage green and are shot through with pale brown pistils. Some phenotypes of the strain also have vibrant streaks of purple. This is the result of pigments called anthocyanins that have been stimulated by cold weather during the growing process. Icy white trichomes are the crowning glory on these striking flowers. This gives them a very sticky texture and making them difficult to make them break up by hand.
When properly cured, Black Diamond has a rich berry aroma passed on from parent strain Blackberry.
On closer inspection, there is also an underlying dank and earthy character. Meanwhile, breaking up or grinding the buds gives off a nutty, toasted odor. When burnt, Black Diamond gives off a surprisingly smooth smoke for an Indica; on the exhale, this smoke leaves behind the taste of oak and berries. Notably, Black Diamond has no detectable grape flavor — this is because the pigments that bring out the leaves’ purple hues do not have a corresponding effect on its taste.
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. 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. It’s strong, the almost narcotic feeling of sedation can effectively numb aches and pains, whether temporary due to injury or chronic 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 can be an antidote for 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.
