With a name that sounds dark and mysterious, some cannabis users might be intimidated to try this particular strain. However, despite its moniker, Blackwater is actually a laid-back strain that is indica-dominant and a cross between Mendocino Purple and San Fernando Valley OG Kush. Its THC concentration can range from anywhere between 7 to 17 percent.
Recreational cannabis users should be prepared for Blackwater’s somewhat intense body high. Though it takes some time to reach its peak, once a calming sensation takes hold, users may find it difficult to remove themselves from their seated position. Some Blackwater users have noted that they experience some psychedelic effects, but others find this strain perfect for zoning out with some good tunes or a film.
As larger amounts of Blackwater are consumed, the body high can intensify. This makes the strain ideal for those suffering from chronic pains or aches. It has also become popular with many people who are dealing with stress-related issues like depression or worries, or even PTSD.
