Black Mamba

About Black Mamba

Black Mamba is an intense indica leaning hybrid with impressive flowers and long-lasting, mind-bending effects. It was created by crossing Blue Bubblejuice and Domina. The result is a flavorful and very potent strain that’s bound to impress even cannabis veterans. Black Mamba’s psychoactivity has been measured at between 13% and 25% THC.

Black Mamba’s flowers are immediately identifiable by their incredibly dark flowers. The curly leaves are a dusky shade of forest green and, more often than not, exhibit patches of deep purple in almost equal proportion. The latter color is the result of exceptionally high levels of anthocyanin pigments in the strain’s genetics; when agitated by cold weather during the growing period, these pigments produce purple hues in a process similar to the changing of foliage in autumn due to depleted chlorophyll levels. These colorful buds cling together in puffy, almost spherical clusters that are small to medium in size. Cloudy white trichomes dot the flowers, making them difficult to break up without a grinder.

Black Mamba also has a memorable aroma to match its eye-catchings buds. When properly cured, the flowers emit a sour-sweet, grape-like scent that invites consumers to take repeated whiffs. Rich base notes of pine emerge on closer inspection, giving the strain an earthy profile. Grinding up or breaking apart the buds yields a more herbal smell. When burnt, Black Mamba gives off a smooth smoke that tastes like sweet grape juice on the exhale. Notably, the strain’s purple color and grape taste are entirely incidental; while its color is determined by pigments, its flavor profile is dictated by compounds called terpenes. Finally, this can be a very pungent smoke -- those looking to keep their consumption discreet should take any necessary precautions.

The high from Black Mamba hits hard and fast, initially manifesting as a pressure in the forehead and around the temples. Smokers may feel their powers of perception suddenly shift to pick up on external stimuli that might otherwise go unnoticed. Not only do sights and sounds seem more intense; smokers may also take increased stock of their own thoughts, which can jump around quickly in rapid association. This mind race can lead many to become talkative and social, more willing to engage with those around them. When used in isolation, Black Mamba can produce the energy needed to accomplish tasks like cleaning, organizing, or running errands. It can also set the stage for users to pore over deep philosophical or analytical questions. At its heights, this strain may induce trippy, almost hallucinogenic effects that can be enjoyable for seasoned smokers but may plunge newbies into panic or paranoia. Black Mamba is definitely a strain to enjoy during the day, as its energetic vibes are likely to leave users wide-eyed and red.

Black Mamba has a few benefits for medical cannabis patients as well. It can help those with mild to moderate cases of stress and depression to spend some time more consciously and mindfully. It may also help those with attention deficit disorders to maintain a clearheaded and lucid focus. This strain can also relieve the painful intraocular pressure associated with glaucoma. As noted, Black Mamba’s strong genetics can contribute to some intense, recursive thinking. As a result, it is not appropriate for those who are prone to panic or anxiety or who have a low tolerance for THC.

Snow High has made seeds of Black Mamba available online. Its plants can grow very tall and may not fare well indoors. In order to be cultivated outdoors, the strain requires a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures in the 70-80 degree Fahrenheit range. Black Mamba also has an extremely long flowering time, almost unheard of in domestic cannabis breeding -- it is ready for harvest after 13 to 14 weeks. For their patience, Black Mamba offers its growers a heavy yield of flowers.

Came with all the characteristics of the strain, purple crystals on the inside of the flower when you break it apart, taste incidentally like grape, tested for 24%

There are two main phenotypes of this strain circulating, and after having had both i definitely have a love/hate relationship with this strain. I mainly smoke to help with insomnia & chronic pain/tension.The indica leaning pheno (gdp x black domina) is one of my all time favs!! Tastes of sweet summer fruit with an undercurrent of pine & vanilla.. Super strong body effect, sublime pain relief, & a calm happy euphoria that makes sleeping cozy & easy. The more sativa leaning pheno (unconfirmed parents) has much of the same body effect but with a very focused, stimulating euphoria. Tastes STRONGLY of pine, oranges, hops. This one honestly makes me have panic attacks every time I try it & gurantees a restless night of sleep.tl;dr trust your nose with this strain! If you're able to get a report on the terpenes I would definitely encourage you to.

For you chronic pain sufferers, PTSD surfers, or those who have reached max capacity relative to the idiots in charge… The Black Mamba is what we’ve been waiting for! Mix it with some Purple Larry or Alien Cookies or take it straight & neat. The Mamba slithers up on you quietly but when she makes her presence known - it is a welcomed strike. (Oh and I hope using “she” has caused several woketard heads to explode!) 🤣 yay!

Intense as hell. My first real time smoking weed, in a city that I was not from, severely depressed (with panic disorder) and during night time I smoked far too much of this straight from the bong, and way too fast.I got the most intense panic attack I had ever hsd, extreme paranoia and hallucinations. Absolute dread and hell for the next 3 or so hours. After that I was high for a few hours more and I was completely relaxed, I had awesomely quick and fantastic thinking and my dreams were a BOMB. It taught me some humility and despite the experience, this stuff is absolutely amazing, just kept me from smoking any weed for almost 2 years LOL.
