Black Magic Kush

An indica-dominant hybrid strain (cultivar) with jade green foliage and bright orange pistils, Black Magic Kush is known as a pleasurable variety of cannabis with sleep-inducing qualities. Medical cannabis patients often seek out the Black Magic Kush strain for pain relief and to treat insomnia. This hybrid strain is a cross between Buckeye Purple and Cherry Sauce.

The strain’s breeders, Andromeda Seeds, have not made Black Magic Kush seeds available online. Prospective cultivators can seek alternative ways of growing the strain, such as by taking clippings of mature plants. The scent of freshly baked pie blended with sweet herbs is strong from flowering time through consumption.
