B.B. King Strain

In his prime, the late Riley B. King, or B.B. King as he is popularly known, took the world by storm as the King of the Blues. During the nights he played his flatted notes and lowered chords, he swayed the hearts of listeners and soothed their souls. Its namesake strain has the same effect.

Like the monarch of the musical movement, the Indica-dominant B.B, King relaxes and calms users. But, instead of music, it does so through its THC levels of up to 16%. Moreover, its buildable high does not discriminate. It appeals to all users – including beginners.

In creating the limited edition B.B. King, MTG seeds merged the genetics of Blackberry Kush and Space Monster. From the former, it gained its sweet citric taste and scent of berries and oranges. Its almost narcotic high, on the other hand, is an obvious trait passed on by its Space Monster parent.

Aside from wonderful flavors and effects, B.B King is also appreciated for its ease of growth. Even amateurs can get the strain to yield a large number of buds. Thus, it’s perfect for both hobbyists and commercial growers alike.

    Gradually, an uplifting, tingling sensation creeps in. Wave after wave, it spreads throughout the body beginning from the temples. From whence the tension came from, a heaviness sets in and envelops the body. Deeply relaxed and totally comfortable, it becomes difficult to decline Mr. Sandman’s invitation to dreamland. For this reason, it is best to smoke B.B. King at night or on a lazy day.


    B.B. King has a strong diesel overtone and citric undertones of lemons, oranges, and berries. To many, the peculiar chemical blend is reminiscent of pine-sol. Some may even say it reminds them of car freshener.


    They say that to truly experience the flavor of a strain, one must draw it in. And, indeed, B.B. King does not disappoint. It blends together the taste of blueberries, oranges, and lemons in a sweet bowl of citric fruits. On the exhale, its diesel note leaves a chemical aftertaste in the mouth.

    Adverse Reaction

    B.B. King is incredibly forgiving. In moderation, it only causes a bit of dryness in the mouth and, sometimes, in the eyes. The two are often mild and barely noticeable during the high. But, for beginners, the dehydration can be quite uncomfortable. In such cases, it is best to down a glass or two of water.

    Backed by the excellence of its Indica genes, B.B. King’s best use is arguably physical. Its soothing high relieves any irritating pressure from the head, around the eyes, and down to the rest of the body. Meanwhile, its anti-spasmodic properties relax the sharp, stinging pain in the gastrointestinal tract caused by sudden contractions. By calming turbulence in the stomach, it appeases nausea.

    As the high wanes, an overwhelming heaviness sets in the limbs. It relaxes the muscles and keeps users from stressing themselves. In time, the sedative effects begin to take effect and users doze off to sleep.

      Over the years, MTG has gained a reputation for their eco-friendly growing methods and resilient plants. As such, it is not surprising to see B.B. King thrive in the great outdoors where its sturdy stalks are well aerated and exposed to natural sunlight. Meanwhile, its mold and cold resistant genes allow it to thrive regardless of the dipping temperatures and fickle humidity levels. Height management is also not a problem as the plant is naturally short.

      Of course, this does mean that the bud does not grow well in a greenhouse. If anything, it protects it from being ravaged by pests and bugs. Not only that, a controlled environment allows one to control deciding factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity. To mimic an au naturel environment indoors, using organic mediums like soil is a must. Besides bringing out the B.B. King’s full potential, it also enhances its flavors.

      B.B. King’s tolerance to common growing mistakes makes it great for inexperienced growers. Although, one great thing to know is that its chemical profiles remain stable regardless of who is growing it.

      Flowering Time


      As an Indica-leaning strain, B.B. King is among the many strains that flower faster than expected. In fact, it usually only takes about 7 to 8 weeks before each square meter produces at least 10 ounces of buds per square meter.


      In a garden, each plant of B.B. King produces more than 12 ounces of buds before the first week of October.
