Blackberry x Blueberry is a delicious amalgam of two strains
that bring its fruitiness to the spotlight. Its berry-flavored terpene profile
delivers a calming euphoria that subtly boosts energy as it swarms the mind. A
long-lasting high, it ends with a state of comfortable slumber as the body is
freed of inhibition.
In developing the strain, Colorado-based LivWell took two one-of-a-kind herbs that have turned into legends in the cannabis industry. First, the medicinal marijuana breeders took Blackberry for its distinct Sativa high and flower production. It was later paired with DJ Short’s official Blueberry strain, which has been in the market since the 1970s but was continually developed by the disc jock for the next few years. From it, the offspring inherited a delicious blueberry flavor along with powerful sedative effects.

As expected, the Indica-dominant Blackberry x Blueberry boasts a flavor that is universally loved. Adding to its appeal is its buildable THC of 14% to 19%, which both beginners and veterans can enjoy with the right dosage.
Without a doubt, one of the best times to consume the herb is after a long day. It uplifts tired souls and soothes the entire body of signs from a hard day’s work. Though primarily used for therapeutic purposes, it remains a wonderful recreational strain for a chill night in.

It takes time for Blackberry x Blueberry to work its magic. Normally, its effects begin around 15 minutes after the first two to three puffs. However, once the initial onset starts, an uplifting cerebral buzz leaves users feeling happy from within. The behavioral change is immediately noticeable too as feelings of optimism and peace radiate from one’s smile.
After about an hour or two, the same uplifting buzz begins to travel down from the temples. It surges throughout the body as a light pressure that loosens the muscles and relieves it of tension. Finally, it wraps users in a deep-seated relaxation that will have one searching for a couch or bed to rest on.
Eventually, the heaviness felt in the limbs makes the eyes droop. Subtle at first, it later intensifies into a feeling of drowsiness until, eventually, users go a trip to dreamland hand-in-hand with Mr. Sandman. Because of its easy-going nature, Blackberry x Blueberry is best taken at night.
The strong smell of overripe blueberries entice the nasal senses at the first whiff. As the buds are broken apart, it produces undertones of berries and hash as well as skunk. Combusting the bud, on the other hand, will release its earthy backend.
Drawing Blackberry x Blueberry is like taking a bite of a blueberry cake with earthy dough tones. In an instant, its berry flavor floods the palate along with a subtle note of skunk. On the exhale, its undertone of hash leaves a rather sharp aftertaste that possibly leaves the throat a little itchy.
As with all other strains, Blackberry x Blueberry comes with side effects. It is usually minor such as a cottonmouth and dry eyes which can easily be managed by staying hydrated throughout the day. In rare cases, it can startle and disorient users with its heavy-hitting high. The temporary dizziness can develop into a subtle feeling of paranoia depending on how high the dosage is. Most of the time, however, it is only limited to a headache.
THC turns into a natural analgesic in moderate to high amounts. As such,
it is not uncommon for patients to report a feeling of relief against various
aches and pains in the body. It also soothes hunger pangs in the stomach caused
The same psychoactive compound also instills a positive behavioral change by eradicating stress and anxiety. In a similar manner, it manages symptoms of depression and other mental issues such as PTSD. With that said, it should be noted that Blackberry x Blueberry is only a temporary alleviant. For long-term treatment, it is best to see a certified, health professional.
Oftentimes, the mental stimulation brought upon by the herb extents to the body. In doing that, a hearty appetite ensues. For this reason, it is a great appetite stimulant for users with cachexia and eating disorders like anorexia.
As alluded to earlier, Blackberry x Blueberry will sometimes act as a sedative. It wraps the body in total relaxation and relieves the late-night worries of the mind. In all likelihood, users with trouble sleeping will feel drowsy once the heaviness sets in. Apart from encouraging an earlier bedtime, the strain will also enhance the quality and quantity of sleep.
As a plant that
leans toward Indica, Blackberry x Blueberry is not at all tall. It is short,
stocky, and quite compact with its dense foliage. Moreover, it is quite sturdy
that will withstand harsher outdoor elements such as strong gusts of wind. The
herb also has a fair amount of resistant to pests and diseases.
While outdoor cultivation produces great results, that setting may be unpredictable. As such, there are many who prefer propagating the strain indoors where it is easy to control important factors such as lighting, temperature, and humidity. Mediums, too, can be chosen with soil enhancing the plant’s overall flavor profile while hydroponics producing ‘cleaner’ buds.
Sadly, the original breeders maintain a proprietary hold on Blackberry x Blueberry. Although this may seem like bad news to aspiring growers, it assures users of a premium quality bud with stable levels of THC.

In controlled environments, flowers show up from 7 to 9 weeks. Each square meter usually produces about 10 to 12 ounces of buds, but experts may harvest a larger amount through the use of certain growing methods such as the Sea of Green.
Outdoors growers usually harvest at least 12 ounces of buds per plant by the middle of October.
