Black Mamba is an intense indica-dominant strain (cultivar) that crosses Grandaddy Purple and Black Domina (with some people claiming a bit of Blue Bubblejuice in the mix). Black Mamba is so potent that it derives its name from a venomous African snake.
The Black Mamba plant has 70% indica lineage and 30% sativa roots and features flowers with deep purple hues from anthocyanin pigments. At first glance, the dark colors of the Black Mamba plant can make it appear black rather than purple. Rich berry and pine aromas, paired with a fruity flavor profile, complement its striking appearance.
People use Black Mamba to relax, relieve aches and pains, and increase appetite. Relatively high THC levels averaging 20% make the strain ideal for treating numerous conditions, including anxiety, insomnia, and, in some cases, eating disorders.
