Black Cherry OG, cultivated by Natural State Medicinal and purchased at Green Springs Medicinal, is one of the strains with mystical and secretive genetics. The rumor is that is a cross of Ken’s OG and a hybrid of Grand Daddy Purp. It is an Indica dominate hybrid but the exact percentage isn’t available. It did test at 16.7% THC.
The look rates as 7 out of 10. This eighth ounce sample is made up of popcorn sized nuggs colored light green with purple splotches. There are no stems left untrimmed. The shape isn’t the normal structure. Online it says that it should be in the shape of a pepper. The tricomb coverage is impressive, even on the stems.
The smell rates 9 out of 10. A smile will come with the first sniff of this sample. A dark berry melody filled my sinuses. It was followed by a dank wet earthy scent that has a subtle hint of camphor or mint. The aroma of this strain took my nose on a blissful journey.
The taste rates 8 out of 10. I smoked this half gram dose wrapped in an OCB hemp paper. Surprisingly the taste is not similar to the smell. The berry taste is there but it’s masked with mild herbal and floral notes. The smell make me expect a black cherry cola flavor, but rest assured its nothing like that.
The cure rates 8 out of 10. The smaller popcorn nuggs are prone to drying faster, sometimes to the point past perfection. This is not the case, as you can see by the pictures. There are still a fee clear tricombs but the majority is a nice cloudy opaque hue of cream and amber. The flower returned to its original shape after a light squeeze.
The effect rates 6 out of 10 unfortunately. Simply put, this strain’s effect is mild. I would suggest this for a novice marijuana patient and those who do not use concentrates. I do have a slight body relaxation and even some nerve pain relief But I would need to triple the dose to get the desired effect.
I’m not far from needing a 30 day tolerance reset. We are a year into medical cannabis. I would love to see some things become available for common uneducated patient. Terpene profiles, and levels other than THC and CBD should be labeled and available for all patients but this won’t happen unless we put pressure on the state board, cultivators, and dispensaries. If a section of each dispensary’s website or weedmaps or even print the top 3 most plentiful terpenes on the label would give an immense amount of information to the customer.
In wrapping up the review of Black Cherry OG, it has a pleasant flavor and awesome aroma. It gets an average of 7.6 out of 10. Its not a med to use in sleep aid in my opinion. Even after a gram, I’m not sedated at all. I would suggest this strain for day use, mood stabilization or a mild pain relief. I look forward to this strain when it tests at a higher THC level or when my tolerance is lower.
