From the name itself, it is suggestive of its appearance. But far beyond its dark look, it is the relatively low THC content that makes it attractive. As most strains today come with insanely high potency, Negra 44 and its milder effects is making its mark in the cannabis community.
Information about Negra 44:
To create this hybrid, the breeder R-Kiem Seeds based in Spain used two parent strains.
One is an African Sativa, and more specifically, a landrace strain from Ghana. From this plant, Negra 44 inherited some of its cerebral effects.
Another strain used is Top 44. Compared to Ghana Sativa, this has more influence. For instance, it passed on some traits such as its Indica heritage and quick flowering time. While Top 44 delivers a relaxing physical effect, it can also cloud the mind. Here is where the African Sativa comes in. It does not lead to mental confusion.
In more ways than one, we can say that offspring is the same strain as Top 44. About the most striking difference is that users of Negra 44 will enjoy hours of clear-headed buzz.

Gentle yet potent enough is an excellent way to describe Negra 44. A test shows the THC level to be at 11%, and that is low by today’s standards. It seems that most breeders and seed banks are focusing most of their time on creating hybrids with over 20% THC. At any rate, this strain is gentle enough which makes it ideal for all kinds of users including beginners.
Once smoked, users feel a mild calming and uplifting sensation sweeping in. As such, most people find themselves feeling an overall sense of happiness. Not only that, but they also become more sociable and talkative.
Another thing it does is to induce more creative thinking. Some people view these types of strains as useful to artists, for example. Even better, using Negra 44 is also like drinking a cup of espresso in that it provides a temporary boost in energy.
Although mild, it depends on how much one uses and individual tolerance limits. Use it a little more, and its effects become more pronounced. If this were Top 44, the above mentioned cerebral effects would have been negated by mental haziness. Of course, even if that were that case, it is not exactly a bad thing. At any rate, the beauty of Negra 44 is that it does not overwhelm the mind.
As the effects wash down over the body, the mild buzz leaves on feeling completely relaxed. Again, Negra 44 is a winner because it does not lead to a couch-lock. In other words, if users do feel hungry, it is not hard to get up and find some food.
It looks dark, and because of its name as well as considering that the breeder is from Spain, it is not hard to think of Paella Negra. Of course, the famous Spanish dish comes with an enticing aroma. The same holds true for Negra 44 as it emits a sweet and fresh earthy scent with a citrusy note.
Dishes and buds may look and smell good, but they also need to match that with great flavors. Here, Negra 44 does not disappoint. The enticing scent it has carries over to its taste where the earthy tone is less pronounced. Contrasting the sweet fruity flavor is a pinch of lemon to make this strain a delightful treat to the throat.
As of now, we do not know much about the possible side effects of using Negra 44. But because it is cannabis, we can make a fair assumption.
For sure, most people will not experience anything that they do not like with its use. If one were to use too much, though, then they are likely to encounter having dry mouth and eyes. We know this is true because that is evident with all other cannabis strains.
Like the adverse reactions, we have not received enough information to determine its most efficient use for medical purposes. Still, based on the effects it gives, we are confident that this strain can be put to good use by medical cannabis users.
The energizing and uplifting sensation that it provides, plus the mood-altering properties are likely to help users forget their troubles. In other words, it should be useful in lessening or eliminating stress.
Most users shift their attention to the feeling of happiness, and couple that with the relaxing properties of its Indica side, Negra 44 is likely helpful for pain relief. The level of effectiveness, though, remains to be seen. At the very least, it should be able to take care of mild pains and aches.
A couple of things also happen with the use of Negra 44. Most people end up with a case of the munchies. Be that as it may, then it is not going to be a struggle to get up and eat something. Also, most people end up feeling sleepy. As such, used at the end of the day, then it can help people sleep soundly.

Growing Negra 44 is not that difficult, at least no one has said it is. At any rate, growers can cultivate the plant indoor or outdoor. Again, we do not have enough information on growing the plant, but what we know is that it thrives in a warm climate.
According to the breeder, Negra 44 has a flowering time that starts in as early as eight weeks. Obviously, this is a trait inherited from Top 44. For every square meter, the estimated yield is around 10 to 12 ounces.
The plant is not likely to grow beyond six feet. It also does not have a pungent odor, and that should afford growers a certain degree of privacy. Usually, it starts the transition to bloom stage in the last days of September. Once it is ready for harvest, growers should have in their hands some 12 ounces of dark olive buds.
