About Blackberry Snow Cone
Blackberry Snow Cone is an indica-leaning hybrid with some serious bag appeal. A combination of Tri-Cities Blackberry Kush and resinous Snow Cone, it is the creation of breeder Jack Davis of Emerald City Growers. The strain boasts a fruity aroma and eye-catching, multicolored flowers. With mostly sleepy, laidback effects, Blackberry Snow Cone has a THC content measured at between 17% and 22%.
Blackberry Snow Cone is distinguished by medium to small flowers that adhere in rounded and slightly tapered formations. The buds have ani indica-influenced internal structure, with a compact core made up of small, tightly coiled leaves. The actual leaves themselves are yellowish green, with some phenotypes even showing off patches of dark purple. Finally, Blackberry Snow Cone is coated in a layer of cloudy, crystalline trichomes, accounting for the strain’s psychoactivity.
When properly cured, flowers of Blackberry Snow Cone have a predominantly fruity aroma, with some distinct notes of berry. A closer inspection might pick up on some sour, almost skunky scents as well. When the buds are broken apart or ground up, meanwhile, they give off a dank, incense-like odor, reminiscent of Afghani. Burning flowers of Blackberry Snow Cone in a pipe or a joint yields a thick but light and palatable smoke. When exhaled, this smoke leaves behind flavors of berry and skunk.
Blackberry Snow Cone may have a slow onset, striking the users some 10 to 15 minutes after consumption. Once it arrives, it brings a headrush marked by strange sensations like a throbbing around the temples and even a possible increase in salivation. As they become accustomed to these weird tics, smokers will find themselves elevated into a more cerebral mindset. Thoughts may seem more intense or complex than usual; users may also begin jumping from one idea to the next in a kind of conceptual free association. In the right set and setting, Blackberry Snow Cone can facilitate productivity on everything from detailed, work-related tasks to mundane daily errands. If shared in social situations, this strain’s amplification of internal monologues may spill over into a lively conversation and good vibes.
After about an hour (or sooner, if the dosage is increased), Blackberry Snow Cone starts to exert some discernible physical effects. A relaxing tingle that originates in the neck can start to spread down the spine and out through the core and limbs. This progressive sense of calm can distract from stress and relieve any lingering muscular tension. It may put a crimp in productivity, however, as users at this stage are more apt to kick back for a binge-watching session than to get through a lengthy to-do list. If the mood is right, Blackberry Snow Cone’s unique combination of mental and physical stimulation may even serve as an effective aphrodisiac. Because of its slow decline in animation, Blackberry Snow Cone is recommended for the afternoon through evening consumption.
Blackberry Snow Cone’s versatile, multifaceted effects can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its initial feelings of focus can be a great concentration aid for those with attention deficit disorders. Additionally, its mood-boosting properties can temporarily soothe the difficult symptoms of stress and depression. On the physical side of things, Blackberry Snow Cone can be a balm for chronic aches and pains as well as for inflammation-related discomforts like nausea and headaches. The strain’s tendency to induce the munchies can also make it a viable appetite stimulant for those dealing with hunger or digestive issues. Because its cerebral effects can veer into paranoia under the wrong circumstances, Blackberry Snow Cone is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who are inexperienced with THC.
Seeds of Blackberry Snow Cone are not available for sale online, although Seattle-area gardeners may be able to obtain seeds directly through Emerald City Growers. Plants can be grown indoors or out, with outdoor cultivation depending on a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Those looking to bring out the flowers’ purple hues should activate their anthocyanin pigments by briefly exposing the plants to nighttime temperatures between 10 and 15 degrees below average. Blackberry Snow Cone flowers within an estimated 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors.
With a solid blend of mental and physical effects, Blackberry Snow Cone is worth seeking out by both indica and sativa fans.
