Blackberry Pie is an interesting strain. Although its name is Blackberry, it tastes more like crushed blueberries with a woody hint of pine. Its aroma is quite therapeutic as it invigorates the senses with its delicious scent. Its effects are equally medicinal as it delivers a restorative head-to-toe high.
In creating the strain, Gage Green used Blackberry Widow as a genetic base. It has a smooth smoke with enticing berry flavors and a fruity scent that tantalizes the scent. On the other hand, Crystal Locomotive is a rare clone-only breed that remains popular for its energetic high. Not to mention, it has significant pharmacological effects that render patients with relief.
