Black Cherry OG Strain

Ken Estes has been in the business of cultivating marijuana for medical use. In 2002, he founded Granddaddy Purple Collective with the goal of helping patients find a reprieve from pains and ailments. Outside of the United States and throughout most of the world, his name is synonymous with one hybrid – the legendary Granddaddy Purple.

It seems that ken used two strains he previously created to develop Black Cherry OG. While the exact genetics were never released, a common perception is that it is a descendant of Ken’s OG. The similarities in effects are striking too. For example, both can deliver an uplifting and full-body relaxing high that could be intense if one were to overindulge. Because of the purple hues on its leaves and flowers, it is also possible that the other parent strain is Granddaddy Purple.

Both Ken’s OG and Granddaddy Purple are mostly Indica strains. It follows too that structurally, Black Cherry OG is no different.

    It does not take too long before the physical effects of Black Cherry OG manifest. Starting with a slight pressure on the forehead, a warm, uplifting sensation ebbs down to the body and towards the extremities. Then, it slams hard. In an instant, tensions vanish as muscles relax. A heaviness sets in and users are now left locked on the couch. Once the full-body effects overwhelm users, most fall into deep introspection.


    Black Cherry OG releases a sweet blend of berry and grape with a tea-like quality to it. Apart from that, it also has a spicy note.


    As pleasant as it smells, it is even more delightful once the berry flavors burst into the palate. Its smoke is smooth and easy on the throat and the lungs. During exhale, it leaves an aftertaste of green tea with a sweet note.

    Adverse Reaction

    The use of Black Cherry OG is not without some adverse effects. Like other hybrids, it can cause the mouth to feel dry. In some cases, the eyes might also feel dry too. Another possible reaction is dizzy.

    In cases when one exceeds tolerance limit (overindulging), then it is also possible to feel slightly more anxious or paranoid. Keep in mind though that even when used in moderation, these conditions could still occur especially with people who are susceptible.


    Apart from uplifting the mood, the sedating properties of Black Cherry OG conspire to get rid of stress. Some of the compounds found in the hybrid functions as natural anti-depressants. Hence, it can help people cope with mental and, to a certain degree, psychological issues including depression.

      Black Cherry OG is not a delicate plant and is suitable for beginners. Growers can choose to grow it indoors or outdoors. Once mature it produces oval-shaped green buds with orange pistils and a decent amount of crystals. To make its appearance striking, exposing the plant to colder temperature before it begins flowering stimulates the addition of purple hues on the leaves and the flowers.

      Flowering Time


      It takes 9 to 10 weeks of flowering before growers can harvest some 8 to 10 ounces of buds per square meter.


      Black Cherry OG starts flowering in the first week of October. Before the month ends, each plant could provide up to 10 ounces.
