About Black 84

This is one of those unique strains that isn’t celebrated for its potency or for its availability but is an absolute favorite for those who have tried it and is a mystery top to bottom. This mellow bud has secret origins, though some claim it is a cross between Mendocino Purps and Black Domina, secret breeders, and tests for THC levels have such a sweeping range it’s hard to know what is fact and what is fiction. The effects, however, are pretty consistent and go right along with what one would expect from an indica-dominant strain.

With sweeping statistics that range from 12% to 25% THC levels and a CBD level of just below 1%, it's not totally clear where this bud actually falls. With that being said, it’s worth it to note that in spite of its secrecy, the rich history and bold flavors of Black 84 keep it well-loved and sought after by the lucky few that have tried it. Black 84 is also thought to have Afghani roots, which may account for its sweet pungency. The nose is candy-like, with caramel and cream overtones complemented by hints of sour fruit. The flavors of these dense, lime green buds are pretty much the same, plus a hint of earthiness at the tail end.

The Black 84 high is rumored to be one filled with history and for that reason it's often said that people look at this strain with rose-colored glasses. It’s mellow in nature, but as it was considered a top-notch medical strain in its hay day and was smuggled out of the University of Washington in the mid-80s, many still see it as a whirlwind high. For recreational use, this one stays pretty low key, giving you slight tingles and body buzzes, but for the most part it is relaxing and partially numbing.

Medically, that makes this strain ideal for a lot of patients and ailments. For starters, the CBD in the strain makes it great for aches, pain, muscle tension and spasms, cramps, and soreness. Because of the low levels of CBD, however, it is not recommended for patients who require consistent CBD in their treatment such as epileptics. Additionally, this strain benefits those with depression, insomnia, and chronic stress.

As is to be expected with super rare strains, grow information for this one is hard to come by. If you are in Washington State or even many parts of Oregon, you’ll have no trouble getting your hands on seeds or buds and likely you will be able to establish a grow practice that works for you.

If you find yourself in the Pacific Northwest and want to give this one a go, you won’t be bummed you did. It’s a typically mellow indica with flavors that parallel a dessert strain without the deep couch lock associated with after dinner treats. You will end up sleepy, though, so be sure to get in your comfiest clothes before diving in.
