  1. Blackberry Kush is a indica-dominant strain often recommended for pain management thanks to its strong body high effects. This strain is a combination of Afghani and Blackberry and is marked by dense and beautiful nugs of purple and orange. Blackberry Kush has a hashy, jet fuel taste and aroma that is balanced by sweet berries. This strain takes approximately 7-8 to flower although it does not typically have a high yeild.

  2. Medium sized buds but extremely dense
    Potent stinky smell in a good way.
    Smooth smoke.
    Top ur plants and scrog them in a net. I topped 1 wen it was only half inch tall and wound up wit 20 colas the plant has a knot and u cant even tell which branch is the bottom. Very pretty and easy enuf!
    Loaded them with 1000ppm during veg and up to 2000 during flower.
    Lots of molasses/nectar lol

  3. Stronger in its effects thanks to a unique combination of terpenes and cannabinoids, a little Blackberry Kush will go a long way.

  4. This is the real deal folks. They deliver everything they say and have the best seed business Anywhere. The guarantee cannot be beat. Every plant we’be grown has had a very high yeild and the THC content will leave you very very Happy. I recomend Either fruit pack, Banana Mango and Blackberry or Blueberry strawberryand pineapple. Great results.

  5. I miss this strain , a family member brought seeds back from Cali years back and unfortunately it was lost in a raid by the pigs along with a Bbk x k*** *u* cross that tested at 27%+ and was much more blackberry flavored than its mom , if only I could get that strain again it’s on my wish list , and as far as outdoors goes mine finished end of September here in Maine

    *Bbk = blackberry kush
    & I didn’t reveal the lineage of the strain I bred it with to preserve breeding info I’m NOT willing to Part With !!!

    But I definitely want the BlackBerry Kush in my lineup again

  6. I bought the Blackberry seeds from you because the quality of your seeds are always superb. I planted not long ago outdoors, and you can check order date. Going fast & generously Budding out in white tops. Only two out of five made it due to an Iguana eating them up, yet one was not eaten. It’s about a meter squared, and It’s looking beautiful. If you would like, then I will snap pic. I can send one in current growth, or send it just before harvest. I can’t wait to smoke it!! Thanks again, IGLM

  7. Indoor it has yielded about 1.75 to 2 lbs per 1000 watt light and looks/smells amazing! In a room constantly battling Powdery Mildew it is the only strain with absolutely ZERO signs of it!!!! We love her for about a million reasons (high yield, great smell, resistant genetics, and overall amazing high etc.). I LOVE it!!!!! Buyers want variety but its hard to get away from such amazing genetics! I’d grow it exclusively if I could. Unfortunately people don’t know what they’ve got until they want more of this beauty! I’d recommend it to novice and experienced growers alike! She’s a blue ribbon winner on every level and I love love love her! 4 eva eva!

  8. A comment to the growing a Blackberry Kush. This is the first year to grow the Blackberry Kush. Outdoors I just weighed in @ 1.5 Lb.s . I still have half to trim. Right @ the end the buds just exploded like a popcorn ernal.
