The Black is a fat juicy sign that it's not for the faint-hearted. This potent medicinal indica (90 per cent) was developed in both California and Vancouver in the late 1980s. Its dark purple leaves turn black when ripe.
This is a plant that can be grown both indoors and outdoors. It takes between 8-10 weeks to complete its flowering phase indoors. Outdoor Northern Hemisphere harvests will be ready in mid-October.
The central colas develop into massive contiguous buds and become liberally coated with glistening resin crystals.
It's a night-time smoke par excellence, its almost narcotic quality soothing and relaxing the body. It's likely to be very useful with sleep problems.
One of the Top Ten Strains of the High Times, 2008 and an entrant to the Barcelona Spannabis Cup.
