Black Russian Strain

Black Russian is among a select group of jet black strains that trace their origins back to Vietnamese landraces.

Under the light, their crimson red and deep wine colors shine through.

And, when grown in warm temperatures, they sport a lighter shade of red with flashes of gold.

Regardless, these inky buds are made of black cannabis magic whose potency is an open secret.

This hybrid carries the genes of two spectacular Indica-dominant strains.

First, Delicious Seeds took the award-winning White Russian for its noteworthy cerebral psychedelic and pharmacological use.

Furthermore, this plant was once the world’s strongest strain.

Enhancing the former’s structure and improving its terpenes is Domina, a phenotype of the world-famous Black Domina.

This variety is a staple in the seedbanks of Spain for its excellent grow.

With Black Domina’s looks and flavors and White Russian’s immense therapeutic value, the resulting hybrid is nothing short of amazing.

Sold only in medical dispensaries, this highly beneficial strain comforts those suffering from certain mental and physical conditions.

Black Russian personifies the age-old adage of ‘a little goes a long way.’ A single toke takes users to an out-of-this-world psychedelic trip.

And, during the comedown, gently tucks them to sleep. But, before anything else, it clears the mind of negativity.

Though the bud only has a little bit of Sativa, it still can uplift the spirit and inspire a sense of happiness from within.

Black Russian Effects

Black Russian’s powerful Indica influence begins as the head high reaches its peak.

It creeps into the body beginning from the forehead and spreads towards the limbs.

Although intense, it is nonetheless relaxing. A soothing heaviness calming the muscles later leads to deep slumber.


Alluding to its potency is Black Russian’s pungent but fragrant odor.

It smells of lemon and citrus that, with just one whiff, can energize virtually any body that comes in contact with it.

Candied undertones enhance the sweet fruity scent.


Black Russian is like a refreshing tropical drink that quenches thirst on a hot day. Its energizing citric flavors of sweet berries and lemon burst in the palate. Even on the exhale, the aftertaste remains a fruity treat.

Adverse Reaction

Highly potent strains like Black Russian often come with a few backhanded consequences.

This is understandable as intense head highs often distort the user’s perception of reality.

Most of the time, the effects vary from some slight dizziness to a mild headache.

But overusing the bud can trigger paranoia. Pacing and moderation is the way to go for users who want to avoid this possibility.

Black Russian does come with two inescapable reactions, dry eyes and cottonmouths.

Dehydration is quite common when vaping or smoking cannabis so this truly comes as no surprise to seasoned users.

Although beginners may want to down some water before and after the high to avoid discomfort.


Black Russian’s potent psychoactive compounds and unique terpenes go beyond the recreational. They are for providing therapeutic relief to a wide array of medical issues.

Black Russian is one of the most prolific plants in the marijuana industry. The plant’s compact buds give the illusion of precious gems in that their crystal coating of trichomes shimmer against a dark backdrop.

Apart from its excellent yield, growers are attracted to Black Russian because of its easy grow.

Largely thanks to its parents, the Black Domina dame and the male White Russian, the hardy herb requires little upkeep throughout its short flowering period.

The need to constantly trim is removed because the plant itself is naturally short with less than a few leaves growing between its buds.

Not only that, the seeds of the well-branched Black Russian are available in feminized form.

This turns the whole process into a joy as growers need not worry about their plants turning into males or hermaphrodites.

Flowering Time


Even inside an artificial environment, Black Russian yields well; producing up to 16 ounces of buds per square meter after a flowering period of 7 to 8 weeks.


Outdoors, Black Russian doubles its yields. Each plant produces at least 31 ounces of stunning ebony buds by late September or early October.
