A strain that was listed as one of the Top 10 Strains of 2008 by the High Times, The Black is a mostly-Indica hybrid whose name comes from the way in which it's leaves turn a real dark purple, and in some cases black, as plants reach maturity.
BC Bud Depot, the inventor of this strain, does not list what specifically went into the creation of this hybrid but they do list the strain as only ten percent Sativa (thus mostly Indica). They state that the Indica has been around since the late 1980s on Vancouver Island and in California. The Black is a potent classical Indica, a knockout strain that should be regulated for night time use.
Not a creeper, this strain settles into the body and begins to soothe aches and pains of any severity almost instantaneously. These narcotic-like effects can cause users to quickly drift off into a deep slumber, great for treating insomnia. It may also help with glaucoma, inflammation and migraines.

This strain grows in about 7-8 weeks. It thrives both indoors and outdoors
