About Black Dahlia
Although this is a lesser-known strain, her beauty and seductive reputation have made the rounds in whispers among her biggest fans. Much like the namesake of this strain, many aspects of the Black Dahlia remain a mystery. The breeders have opted to stay in the shadows, allowing this bud to shine on her own. Bred by crossing Black Cherry Soda with Querkle, this lovely night time high will have you flowing naturally from a social butterfly to a sleeping beauty in just under two hours.
Despite her mellow THC levels, typically maxing at 12%, this bud provides a relatively potent high, leaving users super relaxed, yet talkative and in a very good mood. As the name might suggest, this beauty will have you doing a double take. Upon first glance, it appears as black as night, though when you get closer you’ll notice this bud is, in fact, a blend of deep reds, purples, and greens. The nugs are covered in a sticky and sparkly resin that gives it a crystal-like appearance. The aromas and flavors are a subtle mixture of flowers, berry, and pine with hints of honey and sage as the smoke lingers.
After the first hit you’ll feel the whoosh of a cerebral head high hitting you, bring with it energetic bursts that encourage good moods and conversation. If you are susceptible to surges in your libido, this would be the phase that has you feeling aroused and social. The initial rush is short-lived, however, and is quickly replaced with the desire to rest your eyes and mind. The comedown is strong and fast and will have you drifting off to sleep in no time.
Medically speaking, Black Dahlia is an excellent treatment for any ailment where sedatives are beneficial. Because of these properties, it is used for pain, insomnia, nausea, and mood disorders such as stress, anxiety, depression, and mild cases of PTSD. If you are a first-time smoker, it is suggested to take this one slow. Despite its low THC content, it tends to be on the more potent side. With that being said, this is an approachable bud and all experience levels are welcome.
Black Dahlia offers an easy to medium growing challenge, making it perfect for the beginner that wants to advance to the next level. This short plant is ideal in warm climates with a soil base, so indoor growers can rejoice at the fact that it won’t get too tall for your apartment ceilings. Whether you want to try this one outdoors or in, you’ll find that your flowers will be ready for harvest around 10 to 11 weeks or early October. The yield stays relatively normal regardless of its living space, just so long as it is warm.
Take a slow drag and slip back in time, when things were a little slower, a little easier, and a little darker. It's the perfect cool down bud for when you want to be a little bit social, but need a good night of rest.
