The parent strains are the flavourful Blackberry and Diamond OG, the latter of which derives from the extremely popular OG Kush, considered one of the most legendary strains with its own enigmatic history.
Appearance & Aroma
This majestic strain offers an appearance equally as sophisticated as its aroma. In some phenotypes, vibrant lines of purple accentuate the glistening, frosty, trichomes which crown Black Diamond. This strain’s body is broad and dense, with sage green buds and light brown pistils. The frosted trichomes carry a sticky-like structure making it a challenge to bust by hand. The aroma emitted is often considered to be fruity, tangy, with rich berry tones similar to finer wines; the aftertaste is woody, musky, and overall quite pungent, which makes it a great treat before you hit your royal chambers.
