Lineage: unknown; believed to be Afghani. Imagine Robocop escaping from the lab that designed and built him. Black '84 is an indica cannabis strain that achieved just such a feat, escaping from the University of Washington medical cannabis facility back in the 1980s.
If you were smoking weed in the '80s then you truly understand what an impact Black '84 and its sister strains must have had on Washington cannabis. A genetically-engineered potent indica bud came out of nowhere. And the Black '84 characteristics still hold up today, deeply relaxing and a powerful strain for treating pain, anxiety, insomnia, appetite.
