While it has a name that conjures up the sinister American defense contractor or the epic Game of Thrones battle, Blackwater is a heavy indica strain with a much more laid-back vibe. This variety is a cross between two California strains: the fruity Mendocino Purple from NorCal and L.A.’s own hashy San Fernando Valley (SFV) OG Kush. With very sticky flowers and a pleasant, floaty high, it’s no wonder this strain won 3rd Best Indica in the 2014 Cannabis Cup. Blackwater’s THC, as by cannabis lab Analytics 360, can range from 10% to a potent 20%.
Qualities of blackwater og strain for sale at TPS DISPENSARY
Blackwater’s chunky buds have a classically indica bud structure: leaves are densely and tightly in on themselves when properly. High resin production makes the leaves adhere in large, solid flowers rather than popcorn-like nuggets. The flowers appear dark green, with some phenotypes showing flashes of purple from the Mendocino Purple parent strain; this latter color comes about when high concentrations of specific pigments are activated by colder than average weather in the cultivation process. Blackwater’s large, colorful buds are
in a substantial layer of trichomes, often making them difficult to break apart by hand.
WHY BUY THIS STRAIN
- This strain’s “bag appeal” persists even after the bag is open users will notice a deeply sweet smell of berry and grape to complement its purple hues.
- Taking time to break open the flowers will also show evidence of the Afghani landrace lineage, with an unmistakably herbal, hashy smell.
- When burnt, Blackwater og for sale gives off an incense-like smoke that is surprisingly smooth for an indica. The satisfying hit finishes with a fruity and vaguely skunky cloud that may linger for a while.
