The Blackwater strain is an indica leaning hybrid and an ideal strain for those looking for a de-stressor after a long, hard day. This strain’s delicious taste and fragrant, fruity aromas, combined with its potent effect, make it a great night-time smoke.

Blackwater strain description

Unlike the legendary Game of Thrones battle, the Blackwater weed strain is much more chilled-out. When you take your first toke of a Blackwater blunt, you’ll feel a mellow head high that’ll sink through your body, leaving you in the ultimate relaxation mode. We recommend Blackwater kush as a night-time strain thanks to the dreamy state you’ll experience.  

A grower’s dream, Blackwater weed boasts colorful, dense buds filled with trichomes. This plant’s resin-rich flowers will have anyone drooling at the sight of Blackwater OG strain buds. Your first impression when rolling with the Blackwater strain will be its sweet grape and berry aromas. When you light up, you’ll be hit by a smooth lemon and pine taste, leaving your taste buds tingling.

Don’t let this moderate THC levels fool you. Blackwater marijuana packs quite the punch if you overindulge. One too many pulls and you might find yourself melting into the nearest surface. 

Medical marijuana patients use the physical numbing effects of the Blackwater marijuana strain to treat chronic pain and multiple sclerosis. Please note we are not medical professionals, and it’s always best to consult your medical practitioner before self-medicating with some Blackwater weed.

Blackwater Strain Info

Blackwater strain grow information 

The Blackwater strain is moderately difficult to grow as it has some specific needs to flourish. 

Those who live in a warm, semi-humid climate can effortlessly grow Blackwater marijuana in an outside setting. This strain prefers daytime temps of up to 75°F and doesn’t do well in colder areas. You’ll also need to choose your outdoor spot wisely as this strain enjoys direct sunlight throughout the day.

If the climate is less than ideal in your area, you may want to consider growing your Blackwater cannabis strain indoors or in a greenhouse. If you grow inside, you’ll have more control of the environment and can ensure optimal climatic conditions for your plants. The Blackwater strain has a short, bushy profile and does well in small spaces, so enclosed environments tend to suit it well.

When cultivating Blackwater marijuana, you’ll want to consider the following:

  • Trimming. Thanks to its bushy structure, you’ll need to trim away any thick, sun-blocking leaves.
  • Temperature. If you live in a colder climate and can’t ensure daytime temperatures of 75°F, it’ll be better to grow this strain indoors.
  • Humidity. With the Blackwater marijuana strain preferring humid climates, it’s important to keep an eye out for bud rot and treat it as fast as possible if it starts.
