[Blackberry x Diamond Kush][100% Indica]
There are two ailments that I would commonly hear at the dispensary that always warranted at least a sample of Black Diamond: Nausea and Pain. The strain is High Mountain Health grown in Flagstaff, Arizona and has been a house strain at that dispensary for years. Black Diamond is aptly named for being an expert only Indica, it will make a beginning patient feel sleepy. I like to tell the story of when I got cashew poisoning or the flu (I stopped trying to decide which thing happened). I dealt with stomach cramps what I can only image being compared to growing an alien baby inside of you. Long story short, a bong rip of Black Diamond cured all of my nausea to the point that I was able to sit down at a restaurant and eat for the first time in 3 days. It is a magical cure for stomach ailments and the full body pain relaxation doesn’t hurt either.
How Does It Hit The Senses?
The first thing you will notice every time you’re in the vicinity of Black Diamond is that the whole room fills with a sweet, blackberry aroma. That smell of Blackberry cannabis brings back so many memories of being a young patient in San Francisco that perhaps there is some nostalgia associated with Black Diamond sessions. Seriously though, nothing but the smell of sweet, sweet fruit fills the nostril. Buds are structured like perfect little Pine trees in a mixture of dark purple and kelly green hues. Long, light orange hairs are blanketed over the buds along with icy trichomes. On inhalation the sweet blackberry taste remains, but is paired with a rich cocoa.
What is the Effect?
Effects from Black Diamond take hold first in the spine, slowly creeping up and down the body to relax muscle tension. You’ll feel aches and pains that have become normal slowly dissipate in the first moments of inhalation. Once the creeping effects reach the head you’ll begin to feel a brief relaxation of the mind quickly taken over by a curiosity of thought. The mind always begins to wander for the first moments of a Black Diamond high. Eventually while thought is illuminated the strain begins to hit the ocular nerves and muscles around the eye. Once this effect takes hold it is a quick free fall into Indica territory. I like to describe this strain as one of those rides at the County Fair where you’re strapped into a chair on a giant tall mechanism that slowly brings you up to a peak where you can see just for a moment pure clarity and then BANG!! you’re down. It will take you up to an almost Sativa feeling and then just drop you to a deep Indica effect, this is why I wouldn’t recommend this for all Insomniacs. If you’re mind cannot be stimulated before sleep then choose a more pure relaxation oriented strain like Granddaddy Purple or Purple Kush. Otherwise enjoy sleep almost uncontrollably depending on the potency of the batch with Black Diamond.
