Buy Blackwater is an Indica strain typically bred from Mendo Purps and San Fernando Valley OG Kush. Its round, compact buds take on a deep purple color and a sweet grape aroma that blends with subtle undertones of lemon and pine. What begins as a mellow and euphoric cerebral experience melts down to the rest of the body in a head-to-toe euphoric calm that relieves stress and anxiety. Also, patients have also reported its success in treating pain, appetite loss, and multiple sclerosis. Furthermore, Blackwater has a flowering time of 8 to 10 weeks and produces moderate yields in indoor, outdoor, and greenhouse gardens. The 2014 Los Angeles Cannabis Cup awarded Blackwater 3rd place in the Indica category.
Blackwater’s chunky buds have a classically indica bud structure. Leaves are densely-pack and tightly curled in on themselves when properly cured.

The flowers appear dark green, with some phenotypes showing flashes of purple inherited from the Mendocino Purple parent strain. This latter color comes about when high concentrations of specific pigments. We activate is using the colder than average weather in the cultivation process.
Users will notice a deeply sweet smell of berry and grape to complement its purple hues. Taking time to break open the flowers will also show evidence of the Afghani landrace lineage, with an unmistakably herbal, hashy smell. When burnt, Blackwater gives off an incense-like smoke that is surprisingly smooth for an indica. The satisfying hit finishes with a fruity and vaguely skunky cloud that may linger for a while.
